Today’s assignment: extend your brand with one of the following: a custom Blavatar, a custom image widget, or a Facebook fan page. When I read that, I felt like Charlie Brown.
I understand the need to extend my brand but just did not want to do the assignment. The more I thought about it, the more it made sense.Time to tackle this assignment.
What in the world is a Blavatar? A blavatar is an avatar for blogs. An avatar is an icon or image representing a particular person in computer applications such as blogs, forums or other social networks. Another term that you may see is Gravatar. This is a Globally Reconized Avatar. I decided to take that approach – for now.
We have a yard sign that is planted in front of our RV wherever we park.
I squared up the image and added the name WagginTailsRV on it. That is the name we picked before we retired. It represents the wagging tails of our fur babies as we travel along. I will be working on a better image that represents this theme. If you guys know a sketch artist or someone who could help with this, please let me know.
I want to have an image or a series of related images that will link this blog with Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and other social networks.
One more assignment to go, I think I will finish this course. Thank you for following along with me and thanks for the support. I also appreciate the new bloggers who are following Tales From The WagginMaster.
You’re doing so much better with this course than me! I confess that quite a few of the assignments were taking the blog in a direction I just don’t want to pursue (linking to social media, etc.), at least not at this time. I put my posts on Facebook by manually sharing the link in a post. Been there; done that, and ended up feeling a bit overwhelmed with the maintenance of too many accounts. Over the past 12 months or so, I have been simplifying my life. Your blog is looking great and I applaud you for hanging in with the course!
Thanks Betty. I appreciate your comments and support. I’m not sure how this will play out in the end. I am learning some new things about blogging. That means the course as paid off for me. I am going to continue with the Blogging201 course an branding. Then I’ll be ready for a break.
You’ve done great Dad!!!
Thanks kido. One more course then it is on to some graphic design.
I love the sign picture! I wouldn’t change it up any. I see you are on Facebook so I just liked though it was with my personal Facebook account because for some reason I can’t like with my author account the way it is set up. Still has Knowles in the name though so you will know who it is! Anyway you are right! What next?! I am so far behind on reading blogs because of Blogging 101. I’m going to try to work on this today. Oh! See you in Blogging 201! What else do we have to do! 😉 ~Elle
I enjoy you blog. Wished I had started the Blogging course when you did. There are several things that I need to learn how to do. Thanks for posting.
