Having set up this blog yesterday, I think I’ve worked out enough for me to write my first post. I do have a book blog on BookLikes, but it has been running so slow in recent months it’s almost impossible to use, so I needed to find an alternative. Thanks to the advice of some wonderful book blogglers I know at #BookConnectors, I decided on WordPress.
I’m finding it a little confusing, but overall things are beginning to make sense. I’ve managed to create the basic page, make the background match the Annie Sloan Aubusson Blue colour I painted my reading room walls in recently, add to my About Me page, and add all sorts of stuff in the widgets section, so I think I’m getting there, although I’m sure there are plenty of things I’ve yet to learn about WordPress.
I don’t understand the Featured Image as I put an image at the top, but then it seems to disappear when I preview my post. I’m now wondering if that is just the image that shows on links to the post when a post is shared on sites like Twitter and Facebook?
As being on here feels somewhat strange at the moment, I thought the following photos were appropriate. Both are great books, by the way.
Ooh, the photos worked, yay 🙂
I’ve not worked out how to follow people yet, so that’s my next mission.
