Compiling The Interdependent Web makes my Thursdays busy, so yesterday’s Zero to Hero post didn’t get written. Here are the assignments for yesterday and today.
Day 6 assignment: publish a post that includes a new-to-you element.
As I wrote earlier, I need a haircut. A poll is a new-to-me element, so I think I’ll have you help me decide what to tell my hair stylist!
I’ve also been thinking about coloring my hair. Sometimes it’s a craving for a wild color—a streak of red, green, purple, etc. Other times I just want to cover the gray, so I don’t look like Willa’s grandmother. I’m not great at maintenance, so maybe subtle highlights are the way to go.
Thanks for your advice!
Day 7 assignment: create and upload a simple header, or test out a few different backgrounds.
When I changed the theme to Yoko, I chose a placeholder photo, but it didn’t feel just right. Yes, I love McCarthy, where the photo was taken—and where I participated in a very helpful writing workshop. But the photo of airplanes is more about Liesl than it is about me, and this is my blog.
Here’s the placeholder image:
After a tour through iPhoto, I chose the image you see now in the header. It’s what Girdwood often looks like.
This world. This place. This life.
