So I have been looking at ways of improving this little blog of mine. Experimenting with different things, free things that is. I am the poor that political candidates like to talk about.
Three free resources I’ve found that I rather like are…
~So far I am studying HTML mark-ups and how they work, I have already figured out a few things that could add some style and functionality to the site. It’s also interesting to begin to understand how my WordPress actually is doing some of this work for me and ways I can do it on my own.
~This is a Wiki of the original articles from Steve Dembo’s Teach42 site, an education and technology blog with a lot of interesting articles.
~I recently discovered this one, I have yet to download the free-trial-version because I worry that I wouldn’t be able to use it in conjuction with my wordpress.com blog… But I rather like the idea of being able to create my own theme to express myself and to combine the feature I most enjoy into one blog.
In other blog/geekery news I’ve added some buttons to the sidebar- even creating one for The Wile Hunt.
I also went through and uploaded copies of all the button images to my wordpress account and sourced those images instead of sourcing the images at their original locales!
So that’s the computer geekery I’ve been playing with today.
