Whoopies and yeeeps! Here’s me playing catch-up on this week’s assignment before the clock strikes 12 to break into the weekend! 1 Post with updates for 3 of it. It’s interesting to see how fellow comrades in Blogging 101 is able to fine tune and deal with some of these on a daily basis too!
#2 – take control of your title and Tagline
Seeing how this is mainly a personal blog with events and thoughts, I’d wanted to sparkle it up from the previous version.
- Title: reka.sg
No changes here! This is my identity and syncs with my social media platforms. Reka is my name and I like it, possibly more than I should ;). SG here is a 2-pronged approach referring to (1) my country of citizenship, a nation I’m proud to be part of – Singapore and (2) my Surname/Father’s name, which I’ve been called amongst friends and grew up with – Sadagopal.
- Tagline: Playful Antidotes: Pushing my Boundaries* with Sparkling words and a pinch of Struggle
Had some troubles nailing this down and shared it on The Common page, to which I did get some feedback from luanneholder, trudi and asta who seemed to sway to the third option. So I decided to mix it up. Probably will change once I’ve gotten more focused (if I do)!
- A Catalog of Memories with Sparkling Words with a Pinch of Struggle
- Episodes and Experiments, A Personal Catalog of who-knows-what from SG.
- Pushing My Boundaries*
*Boundary is the meaning of my name, Rekha means line (or boundaries) which was drawn in the Hindu tale Ramayana.
#3 – Say Hello to the Neighbours
On day three, we’re tasked to follow/add 5 new tags and 5 new blogs! Over this course, I’m definitely following quite a number of course-mates, so I chose to follow an additional 5 more beyond and also explore “Reader’s -Freshly Pressed & Recommended” tabs! Asking for trouble or suicide perhaps? Bring on the words and images!
- Tags I’ve chosen to follow: AD, Healthy Snacks, Sarcasm, Travel and Zumba
- Key Blogs following: Fitness on Toast, Apron Strings and Sticky Fingers, Peg-o-Leg’s Rambling, The Daily Dahlia and Leanne Cole PHOTOGRAPHY.
#5 – Love Your Theme
Apostrophe is the theme I’m currently using (by An Automattic Medley?) and have previously customised it. Although reluctant to (very much so!), I did check out some of the themes to know what’s hot and if change is a must. Over time, I might actually change the look and feel of my blog (perhaps to Gazette or something newer)?
That means 4 out of 5 tasks done! I’m still on task #4 – Identify Your Audience, which I’m still wondering about but had fun reading course-mates entries (oops!), especially Bun Karyudo’s! Knock-Knock joke.
Time check: 11.56pm and the #GE2015, #SGElection Voting results are being accounted for!
To the weekend ahead of us!
