The Zero to Hero Better Blog Assignment: It’s a Very Good Place to Start

Welcome dear readers to 2014 and my new look blog. Over the holiday hiatus I rearranged the blog furniture, dusted off the curtain and spruced up the place a little. This spurt of activity came hot on the heels of me cleaning up my bookcase at home, emancipating a huge bag of books to good masters and getting reacquainted with two and half bookshelves of empty space as a result.

It feels good and just in time for a cool refreshing Summer drink.

Now to take the new look blog out for a test run.

And what better way to do than to participate in the WordPress Zero to Hero blogging program? This involves 30 blog tips and exercises from our WordPress hosts over January. Happily, this won’t necessarily mean a blog a day, but it will mean a few new blog posts, some bloggy tweaking and learning new skills.

Which is a very good thing even though I have been blogging for about 18 months. It has been 18 months of a relatively steep but fun learning curve that has been anything but systematic. This will be good way to polish skills that have been acquired on a need to know basis and by the trial and error of doing rather than studying. I was led to the WordPress platform a few days before the A to Z April Blogging Challenge of 2012 started and being faced with a real life blog which I had to master quickly, I have concentrated only on the basics.

It’s time to take my blog learning to another level through the Zero to Hero assignments. Like Do Re Mi, it’s a very good place to start.

I’m not sure what assignments WordPress has in store but no doubt it will be an adventure.

So I’ve got my bloggy cape, magic lasso and super hero boots at the ready. Not to mention my hero speech bubbles,

Widget Wham!

Publish Pow!

Holy Posts Batman!

for this January journey.

Excuse me, must dash the Blog bat phone is ringing and it’s the WordPress commissioners with my first assignment.

  1. I have no idea about this zero to hero, only from what I’ve seen on a few other posts. I must say I do like the look of your new one, very tasteful decor hun, love the curtain, expect you to burst forth through the middle! Good luck on this new adventure sweet to the bat mobeel & beyond! (Little over the top ?). :-) x
