What I did

Today, I set up a WordPress account. I followed along with the instructions provided and established my site to be used as a portal for this semester. I chose a theme to complement my portal as well as make it visually interesting. I also titled my site and gave it a tagline. 

Why I did it

I chose the “Hemingway” theme. I prefer simple, classic designs and the “Hemingway” theme fit this bill. It is visually appealing while not being overly stimulating. It is eye-catching and also subtle. I didn’t want to get too hung up on the title and tagline so for today I named my site simply “Maddi’s Portal” and the tagline is “A site for English 3844.”
