Weekly Summary

Week One Summary

This week was really challenging for me because I am not very tech-savvy. I could not get the website design how I wanted it for the life of me and it was driving me crazy trying to figure out how to work everything on WordPress. I know in hindsight it really wasn’t THAT hard, but for someone who sticks to Instagram and Facebook as a way of communicating with the internet, this was a huge challenge for me. I have a personal Twitter account but I never post anything, I only use it for memes and funny posts when I have nothing else to look at, so using that as a way of communicating for this class is definitely going to be interesting. SoundCloud was another site that I am not familiar with and figuring out how to record media on my laptop and upload it was also hard for me to do. I had to research what kind of programs my laptop had in order for me to figure out how to record audio only and upload it. I feel like this week was just as challenging as I thought it would be, and I was actually really nervous I wouldn’t be able to do it. But throughout the week I learned how to use the software (I think) and surprised myself when I was able to create my own website that actually functions properly. I really enjoyed designing the website and I even showed it off to a few of my friends because I think it was a huge accomplishment for me. I am definitely nervous about the rest of this semester but I am excited for the challenge! Below are links to my posts from this week:
