I think, maybe, just maybe, I’ve finally finished the Arts of Language Page. You can find it here if you have some time to read it. Grab a new cup of coffee first–it’s LONG! I know, I know, English is my thing and I tend to get carried away with it, but there really is just SO much to say there.
I didn’t follow my own instruction to my students as I’ve been working on the page. I wrote without an outline. :-O Instead, I did more of a “stream of consciousness” thing and just kept writing. In fact, I’ve been back to the page several times over the last couple of weeks adding even more to it. Perhaps a few “go to top” links might be appropriate? Maybe I should break the page up into its components? I don’t know. For now, I’m leaving it as it is. If I don’t, I’ll never get anything written for the history areas (AKA, what’s often called Social Studies or Humanities in schools) or Sciences, not to mention all the fun non-core areas like art, music, foreign languages, home ec, vo-tech, etc, etc, etc.
You know what else I want to look into? No, how could you know what’s bouncing around my brain? I learned that my site isn’t mobile friendly and I have no idea how to change that. I guess I’ll need to schedule some time for yet another call to tech support. Thankfully, I chose wisely there, and they answer the phone 24/7. I did, however discover that I could add to the Home page just by typing a new post! I guess the blog thing will work this way. I thought each post would end up on its own page, but I guess not. Add another thing to that list to ask the tech guys.
Here’s another thing: I want to figure out is how to insert pictures right onto the pages. I don’t want to add too many, though, because I want RH to be a place that isn’t annoying. I know I can’t stand it when websites take forever to load because of long running scripts. I can’t be the only one who gets annoyed by all the ads all over the Internet these days either. I just want a nice, useful, informative website. Something that is evergreen that people come to associate with solid guidance. How am I doing? (Yeah, the comments are still turned off! I think. Maybe.)
