9/3/14 – Designing my Blog

What I Did

Today, I changed a few things to customize my blog. First, I added categories for my posts to organize them. I also added a widget that would let people follow my blog. I also started to work on a menu for my site and updated the theme of my blog.

Why I Did It

When choosing my widgets, I chose to only add the “follow” option for now because I didn’t want to overwhelm my site. When I changed my theme, I chose one that better highlighted my main header image that I took while in Italy. In my current theme, the image takes up most of the first screen the viewer sees. I did this to keep the spatial and visual elements of multimodal design in mind – my main image is what takes up the most space in the design of the page.
