The One With Nothing In It

James Proclaims (4)

Welcome back to James Proclaims for another enthralling report about the travails of a novice blogger, who is trying to achieve blogging enlightenment through a series of prosaic tasks that are masquerading as some kind of insightful training.

Yes it’s day seven of Blogging 101 and today’s thrilling task is:

Create and upload a simple header, background, or both. Already done? Try a custom widget.

Right let’s deal with these one at a time.

I can’t put a header on because the ‘theme’ I’ve chosen doesn’t support that feature.

“What’s a ‘theme’?” I hear the blogging dilettantes cry.

Fortunately I already explained that in a previous post. Click here to read about it. Oh and I explained widgets here.

Speaking of widgets, there are now loads of them on this blog. I put them all up on Saturday. Scroll to the bottom of the page to see some of them. There’s even a hilarious reference to ‘Taxonomy’ which is a call-back to this brilliant post that I wrote.

As for the background. Well that’s the cool Star Wars thing that keeps appearing whenever you click on anything.

What’s that you say?

It’s a bit annoying and distracting?

I think you’ll find it’s awesome!

Anyway, I’m not getting rid of it until I can find an even cooler Star Wars background to replace it.

I love Star Wars. I wrote about that before too.You can read that here.

This post is becoming a bit like one of those ‘clip shows’ that sit-coms like ‘Friends’ used to do. They were episodes that were entirely reliant on previous material tenuously strung together by vague conversations between the characters in the present. Incidentally the title of today’s post is also a reference to ‘Friends’. I liked ‘Friends’.

Who didn’t like ‘Friends’?

Anyway I think we can all agree that my efforts today have been feeble (could have done a ‘Friends’ pun there and written ‘Phoeble’!). However, even by the fairly pedestrian standards of Blogging 101, today’s task has given me very little to work with.

I’m sure tomorrow will be better.

    Love the Star Wars wallpaper, I may or may not have *cough* liberated it to use as my laptop’s wallpaper! Your widgets leave me feeling like I hurried through and didn’t REALLY investigate these. I vow to re-visit the widgets, there are some you’re using I need to!

      There’s loads of widgets- I may yet add more myself – I might actually be a widgetaholic. And my blog is your blog Kelli so help yourself to any Star Wars imagery that takes your fancy…

    Do you need someone to sing the Friends theme song for you in order to get you through this class?

    Your “Phoeble” joke made me laugh. Keep writing. You may reach blogging enlightenment yet 🙂

      Listening to the Friends theme tune as I write this…
      Don’t think I’ll ever reach blogger enlightenment – blogging adequacy will do though.

        Wish I had more time to help. Leaving town for a while. Browse my archives if you get a chance. Have a good few weeks.
