Today’s assignment was to make an official ABOUT page along with a widget that would contain some key text from the ABOUT page without being too lengthy. I’ve realised over the course of this last week that my goal for this blog is becoming more clear though not necessarily as defined as I might like. I would like to chronicle a bit about, where I’ve been and where I am and will be going, if for nothing else, than to have something to look back on and remind me of progress. For the ABOUT me widget, which I titled, YOUR AUTHOR, I tried to highlight some of the key events in my life that might encourage a reader to want to read more. The text I have chosen to use in the widget does summarise my ABOUT page but hopefully entices the reader to want to read. Also I see it as a source of credibility depending on the subject I may be exploring in any given post. The ‘YOUR AUTHOR’ text widget I made is set to only be displayed on the HOME page. I may change that later to appear everywhere -but I figure it might be a good idea to keep the blog portion ‘less busy’ aesthetically speaking. And I continue to learn and grow and explore!
About your author
I grew up on the 'Spice Island', the island of Grenada located in the West Indies in the Caribbean Sea. I love Grenada and hope one day to return there permanently. For now I live in the San Francisco bay area on my boat and am blessed with a wonderful job as a lead Aircraft Maintenance Technician with Southwest Airlines in Oakland, Ca. I have been in the Aviation business since I was 18 years old initiated in the field by The United States Navy which I joined at age 17. My other interests are my boat which I live on, my wonderfully loving dogs, music and creativity of all sorts.
