Adventures in Blogging - 2015 9/52

Another adventurous week of blogging involved downloading Adobe Photoshop to work on a badge for blog and creating my first link party.  Even though I have been trying to promote Mothering Sunday Link Party, I have gotten no response.  It is running until March 22nd but it is a new experience.

My goals this next week is to create "Disclosure/Privacy" page on blog and look into being "PR Friendly".

BLOG LAYOUT CHANGES

1) Created a "Grab My Badge" for sidebar of blog. I used the below tutorial to create the badge.  This is a very good article because it walks you through the HTML coding.
