“Custom Text and Image Widgets” Challenge

We have a better sense of what widgets offer, so let’s go further and learn how completely custom widgets create a cohesive look from header to sidebar.

Today, create a new custom image widget using one of the tutorials on the resource page. If you don’t want to add any new widget content, add a graphic element to an existing widget. Visit the resource page to explore:

  • Image widget basics
  • Custom image widget inspiration
  • How to create a custom image with PicMonkey or Canva
  • How to use custom images in text widgets

Image widgets can be used for just about anything; we particularly appreciate when bloggers use them to highlight social networking profiles, direct our attention to special features, or draw us into different sections of their blogs. They’re eye-catching, and encourage readers to explore.
