Adding media

Putting it into practice

• What did you have for lunch?

• Where is your favorite place to eat?

• Dinner?

• Add pictures

  say

• Not set in stone, easy to change
Custom header

• Show off something yummy!

• Picking the right photo

• Quick edits...
Custom backgrounds

• Tread carefully

• Easy to get wrong

• Hard to get right
Widgets

• What to pick

• Directing where people go
The writing part & SEO

• Titles that are descriptive

• Tags = keywords

• Categories = keywords with an eye to organization
And now...
