Day Fourteen: Create Your Own Feature

One of the best ways to inspire reader loyalty is to publish consistently. Give your readers something to look forward to!

Today, develop a regular posting feature for your blog.

Here’s how:

  1. First, think of the type of regular feature you can commit to — something you’ll publish weekly, biweekly, or monthly.
  2. Next, start your new post by clicking the button below. This can be the first installment, or an announcement of what’s coming.
  3. Finally, give your post a few tags, including bloggingfundamentals, and publish it.

Regular features are great for readers — and they keep you on track, too. A little scheduling is a great way to develop a blogging habit.

Start a new post

If you’re not sure what a “feature” is, or what kind of regular feature might work for your blog, we’ve got some advice! Learn more in the tools and tips for this assignment.

Cheers,

Day Thirteen: Build Your Brand

You blog is getting more focused (and more readers!). Let’s reinforce your image.

Today, create a custom blog icon.

Here’s how:

  1. First, choose a little image to represent your blog — a small photo, your initials, or a piece of your header image all work well.
  2. Next, click the button below to reach your blog’s General Settings tab.
  3. Finally, click “Choose File” under the Site Icon tools on the right to upload your image, and follow the prompts to save it.

If you decide you’d like to change this image, you can find the uploading tool by going to My Site > Settings > Site Icon.

Go to your General Settings

Remember PicMonkey? Use it to make your blog icon, too! Learn more in the tools and tips for this assignment.

Cheers,
