Starting your blog: The “About” page

In class Tuesday, we created our personal blogs. To recap, you need to create a personal blog (not a diary, not a set of movie reviews) that has a tightly specific topic and connects with a community. Some good examples from class are a focus on the college taekwondo community, another about outdoor photographers in northern WV, and still another about working the graveyard shift. If you’re still searching, find your focus and identify the community you can connect with.

Your first assignment is a simple one: Rewrite the WordPress boilerplate on your personal blog’s “About” page to say something more specific about what you’ll be doing. You will need to:

  1. In your dashboard, go to “Pages” on the left bar.
  2. Select “All Pages”
  3. Choose the existing “About” page and select “Edit”
  4. Enter your new text and click the big blue “Publish” button
  5. Send me the link (by Sunday) to your “About” page (not the main blog page) and a one-sentence description of your blog. DON’T FORGET THIS STEP!

That’s it. This must be posted by Sunday, January 15.
