Creating our blog for the midterm was a lot of fun. I just wish we had a bit more time to mess around with them before submission. Let’s look at some of the highs and lows.
One thing that was hard, at least for me, was picking a theme. I must have tried each theme at least twice. Back and forth, back and forth, I constantly was changing it. Just when I thought I found one I liked I changed my mind. One thing that made choosing my theme a bit difficult was finding one where I could get the header exactly how I wanted it. I just happened to stumble into the header that I eventually went with. The picture I used was originally just a picture to put in my intro video.
I think creatively, using a premium theme would have made putting the blog together as far as the little intricacies. There are fun things I saw in other web sites and blogs I would have liked to include, but the limitations of the free theme didn’t allow for such. Although, I did check out other blogging sites and it seemed as though word press had the best themes. (I admit I didn’t look all that hard, so there may have been things in other blogging sites I missed.)
One other thing I had a slightly tough time with, was choosing a subject. There are many things I find interesting that I think would make good blogging subject, so choosing one was hard. However, I may after the semester, is launch a blog or two more. That is if time permits of course.
The best thing about this blog we created is it is reflective of us. We are able to blog about something we are passionate about. It was fun applying the things we have done so far here in our class blog and using these in a blog about something that reflects our individual interests.
