2009: Sunday 11 January
Greetings to all my readers and I wish you a happy and harmonious New Year!
My goal this year is to improve my blogging and to use my blog as my professional web page for those who follow me and for those who wish to contact me about project work. Please view the new Professional Services page in this blog. I’m already pleased to be working on several projects with a few more waiting in the wings (awaiting funding approval – you know the score) – this year looks like it will be even busier for me than 2008.
What a perfect opportunity, when the 31 day challenge notification came across my desk today, I immediately jumped into it and began to amend my blog pages, posts, settings etc.
The task for day one was to send an email to a new reader of my blog – something I’d not done before – mainly cos I don’t have many comments – so I’m often unaware of those reading my blog. This sent me off on a trail of learning about the intricacies of the admin tools here in WordPress and caused me to rethink the way in which I wanted my blog to work for me in 2009.
I have made a few changes to the settings to enable a smoother transition into comments and changed the privacy level to make this task easier for you. Please feel free to comment on any of the next 31 postings to give me feedback on how I’m going here.
