I promised that today I would complete a few days worth of challenge tasks all at once. Hopefully I haven’t bitten off more than I can chew. I doubt it.
Day Two: What’s your name?
The task: Come up with a name (if you don’t already have one) or change your name (if it needs tweaking). Edit your tag line. Flesh out both of them in a widget.
My name is sort of obvious, I think. I like it. I put a great deal of time into it when I started the blog and I have social networking accounts that are linked to my blog. I am truly happy with the name and that has nothing to do with the fact that changing the name of my blog would be a pain in the head in terms of social networking profiles (etc)… okay maybe a teeny bit.
My Tagline is good too. I think. The only reservation I have about it, is the length. I think it probably should be shorter. I’m also not sure if I like how the tagline appears on the page, but that is more of a ‘theme’ issue more than anything. I could shorten it to Literacy and Learning. I could also add something about reflection, as this is clearly a new focus for me. I don’t want readers to be turned off when they see that it is a personal ‘reflective’ type of blog. I need to think more about it.
I have already created a Widget for my sidebar that sums things up about me, however I am going to edit it. This is probably one of those things that I should review more often. Even if the “About” page isn’t updated all the time, I think the Widget probably should be. Perhaps I should ask the bloggers on the forum about that. If you want to update ‘about’ info, where should you do it?
That is Day Two Done! 😀
Write a Post (but you don’t have to publish): Okay, I’m going to cheat on this one a little bit. I am drafting and I am thinking about several posts, I will spend extra time drafting in the next few days. I am also planning out a few series that will allow me to finally write about some “big ideas” and lessons I have learned in my coaching role.
Day 3 = Done!
Just so you know…
I have started the Day 4 topic, but I think it deserves it’s own post. Really, I do. Tomorrow, you will see my response to Task 4 with a few comments on Task 5. For the record, I really enjoyed both Task 4 and 5. On Thursday I will try to tackle 6 and 7 together which should get me all caught up. We will see how that goes, I suppose.
