I have been keeping up with my blogging courses fairly evenly. In other words, I am on the same lesson for both courses and, because both have the same instructor, my last lessons were on theme.
On Monday I tried to do a trial of several themes and ended up making the switch accidentally. I could not remember what my old theme had been so I was unable to easily switch back. Did I panic? No. I simply tried to make due with what I had and then called it a day… really, I told my computer to sleep on it (literally, put it in sleep mode) and walked away wondering if my new menu option was going to be a deterrent to readers and if I would be able to figure out how to fix it.
A funny thing happened. My friend, Joey, commented that she thought my site looked clean which I took as an extreme compliment from someone who likes cleanliness. Then she suggested that, after a good night’s rest, I might want to fix my links. Not surprising, that was the next lesson in my courses.
So, today I worked on my links. I found some of my links were not working anymore – especially the one for my book which I had changed. I was able to correctly link sites and pages with little to no effort. I am getting good at this!
Then I noticed that I had two menus which had the same information. Really, who needs two menus? I quickly found out how to delete the second menu. I also deleted some pages I have yet to create but had put in as place markers.
Overall, I think the changes have made my site much more user-friendly. This is just a small step, but it is a good step towards reaching my goal of having a successful website.
Here’s to changes that make us happy. If only I could take a day off and transform most of the fat in my body to muscle. Oh, well, not all change is easy.
