6 Ways I’ve Made My Blog More Visual and Accessible This Spring [VIDEO]


It’s spring and I’m spring cleaning and sprucing up the ol’ blog. This video will show you all the steps I have taken so far and how I hope the blog will be better as a result:

Here is a summary of the changes and links to helpful resources:
New theme: WordPress.com’s Twenty Fourteen theme

New custom header I created with an original photo. I used Pixlromatic+ and Pixlr Express+ to edit the photo, add effects and text.

I’m adding featured images to each page and post, which the Twenty Fourteen theme features at the top.

I updated my “most viewed” list on my “About Glen” page to reflect changes over the past year. I also move links to my emails lists and social media channels to the top of the page so they are featured prominently.

I changed my landing pages to reflect 3 prominent categories of writing that will be on my blog. The page explains the category and will give some examples on posts from that category.

I hope this video gives you a lot of value as a blogger! Let me know in the comments. If you are interested in knowing more about the processes I am developing and tools I am using for efficient mobile blogging, sign up for my Nomad Writer newsletter.
