Blogs Like Mine

Since my blog is really only about school work, I don’t have many to compare it to.  I have seen some blogs where people blog about their experiences at school.  My site could connect with these because mine is a different aspect about school.  Some people use their blogs to talk about school, where I use my blog FOR school.  Many blogs are always about the experience but never have the work to show.  My blog has both the experience and the projects I worked on.

With just the outcomes, people may not be able to appreciate them as much because they don’t realize how much trouble one could have went through to make something that might look very simple.  Or, someone might look at something and think they would never be able to accomplish a task, when in reality, if someone shares their experience they might realize they are capable of success.  The same thing goes for just having experiences.  If someone just talks about everything they’ve done without anything to show, it might not be believable.  Anyone can talk or post pictures but when you put them together and use your personal experiences, it makes the content richer.


Creating My Blog

I have used WordPress previously, but the website had already been created, I was just adding posts, articles, etc.  I had never been able to work so freely with the site before.  When I chose my theme, it did not have multiple columns and it had no navigation bar.  Instead of playing around with the settings, I decided to just pick a new theme.  After picking my new theme, I realized it also did not have a navigation bar.  But this time, I wanted to see if there was a way to change that.  After a quick look through the settings, I was able to have the navigation bar on display.  Then my next and final dilemma was when I needed to add the “Meet The Author” page.  Since I wanted it in the navigation bar, after I added the page, I had to go back into the settings and select it to be a part of the bar.  After I finished that, I had no other issues with the site.  It was all due to the theme I wanted.
