10/16-10/20 Presentations

Out of the presentations, I’d would have to choose Prezi as seeming the most helpful with Storify coming as a close second. The advantages of having an application that can really mix up the presentation archetype would be too good to pass up, and despite the learning curve with using it I think the pay […]

10/15 Applications Review

The big winner from today’s applications has to be Draft. Had I known such an application existed my freshmen year of college, I would have spent a lot of money on it. I don’t know how much I intend to use it for Project 3 but I can see this application being immensely helpful for […]

10/12 Applications Review

With my own application, I don’t see much use in the near and present future but I’ll revisit the idea of using it once I’ve graduated from school.

I’d looked at some of the others and decided against them because, frankly, while they seemed useful to some people they didn’t have much potential for practical use in my own work.

What I Did: I added a page with recommended music videos. I reformatted the titles of my posts and messed about with the arrangements and headers of the posts. I removed and rearranged some of my widgets. I changed the header and cropped it. Why I did It: I wanted to add an aural and […]

September 10th Summary

    Today I edited the about me section and added a contact form, in addition to messing about with the color palette at the recommendations of two of my classmates. I added in a photo of myself and streamlined my sidebars so that there would be less extraneous information cluttering the page. I also gave […]
