Blogging 101 : Extend Your Brand

Today’s assignment is kinda tough. Here’s what we should do : Extend your brand with one of the following: a custom site icon, a custom image widget, or a fan page.

My thoughts on these tasks:

  • A custom site icon — I’ve completed this one way before task *grins*
  • A custom image widget — Oh this is tough for me right now as I don’t have any photo editing software or digital pen to do this, so I resorted to just display a media gallery. At first I was hit by some trouble in displaying the gallery. I tried to insert an image widget that can link to a media gallery however the link seems broken. After troubleshooting only I realize I copied the incorrect link 😮 Well now I got it fixed and there’s a whole new gallery on my sidebar! Do check it out 😀
  • A fan page — Wow! On Facebook? Hmm I’m contemplating this because I only want to maintain a single account to declutter my life. Maybe in the future…

Moving phases of life,
One has to be born,
Passing through the night,
Birth of a new dawn.

In arms of spiral galaxy,
Laying nurtured to conceive,
Encircling nebulae canopy,
Reaching apex of eve.

Collapse in pull,
Radiating ray of violet,
Brimmed viscera full,
Shine through scarlet.

Morph to full star,
Glowing across space,
Burning near and far,
In this finite state.

This birth of a star poem is inspired by a themed quote from Stellar and Lunar Challenge Roundup #9 (July 16).

One must still have chaos in oneself to be able to give birth to a dancing star. (Friedrich Nietzsche)
