Further into the transformation (Zero to Hero Day 8)


The assignment for Day 8 is to create an About page, or revisit and improve the one you have.

This was no small feat!

First, I decided to hide all but one of the existing Pages I had written.

Two were about other blogs I work on.  I think promoting them will be covered better in a later challenge: Day Thirteen: Build a (Better) Blogroll.

One was about the last blogging platform I wrote at, and another blog that I contribute to for other bloggers that used that blogging platform, too.

The other three were all about this blog here, so it made sense to unite them into one: About the tao of jaklumen and the Hero’s Journey.  That page wasn’t easy to write– I decided to put up links to categories of blog posts I was especially pleased with.  But WordPress starts the Categories page with the newest post, ending with the oldest– and for categories having to do with the Hero’s Journey, it would be like reading a story backwards.

So for the Equilibrium and Silver Surfer categories, I had to sort through every post and include a link at the bottom indicating which post was next in the series.

I also used an image and a text link to each category.  It was hard to line up each image to each text link correctly.

It’s finally done… for now.  I had to revise things over 25 times.  I hope it’s worth it!  The Silver Surfer series will have some additions to it, but I need to get a copy of the Infinity Gauntlet graphic novel first.

I'm a Zero to Hero Blogger!

Wherever you see "jaklumen", that's me- the username is still unique as of the current year. Be aware that the facet you see, is only a small part of the me that is me.

  1. I’m enjoying reading about your responses to the challenges!
    My blogroll is a mess, and is often just ignored instead of cleaning the damn thing up.


    • I think the challenge makes some useful suggestions, but I really think honest charm, friendliness, and putting yourself out there does a lot for blog readership. Y’know, stuff you’re already doing 😉


  2. You are very busy and dedicated. Good job. Keep at it. If anybody can succeed with this challenge, it’s you.


    • Thanks again, C.C.! If the challenge is making things easier and easier for you to read, then it’s doing some good things.

      Cimmorene is more or less caught up with where the challenge is set for today, but I’m just taking my time and documenting it all.


  3. Yes, very funny! Please make this easier for me to read! 🙂
