June 30, 2011 Posting success! Yes, it’s easy to keep me entertained. Think I’m going to like the QuickPress feature. And of course, me being me, finding it’s strengths and limitations. Strength – makes it initially easy to post content. Limits: unknown – that would be something to learn. Ah, preview within QuickPress is not exactly the same as viewing the post on the web. Found a limitation!
Going to try to insert an image near beginning of each post. Snipped a bit of the “digital header” design to provide visual continuity throughout the blog. Wanted graphic to be positioned on same line as beginning line of post, just after the date. Don’t think that will be possible. There are limitations to the positioning of the graphic using this theme, and likely, with most of them, and I’m assuming that’s to do with html and css issues. Learned with a page I wrote elsewhere on the web several years ago that positioning graphics is not so simple on web pages. And need to add text label to the graphic, too. You’ll be able to see my success or lack of it
Also going to try to wade into SEO matters. Those efforts will likely not be visible on the blog, but hopefully will raise page rankings. That will be very important for the other “real” blog that I hope to create. Will update with progress, or lack of it, with SEO. I’m expecting some lag time before the search engines crawl over to index this, and need to research relevant key words to use, both within the blog and in the title of it. May want to change the tagline.
