This is mostly of use for those who didn’t complete the Design Studio subject – but is worth glancing over for everybody.
Does your blog have each of these elements? (wordpress help)
– An about page on your sidebar? ( Or about text – using the text widget )
– An altered tagline ( ie it should not say the default ‘Just another wordpress blog’ )
– Have you successfully inserted an image into a blog post?
– Do you have your own custom header graphic?
– Do you have at least 5 links to others, in your sidebar? ( Why do this? )
– Have you edited / deleted the initial default ‘Hello World’ post?
– Is your blog included in the Yahoo Pipes compiled list of class blogs?
( If not, email your blog address to get added ( sean.healy -at- rmit.ed.au )
