This Week ergh Day in Review


First thing I’ll say is do not procrastinate. I joined the class just before the Tuesday deadline at 5 p.m. Despite various warnings from the professor about participating daily, I procrastinated. I realize now after spending almost my whole Sunday in front of my computer that ds106 is not to be crammed.

Picking my domain came very quick to me. I recently graduated on May 7th, but I still need more credit hours. My employers would like me to reach 150 credit hours. Once I have 150 credit hours (taking any kind of class) I can obtain my CPA (Certified Public Accountant) licensing. As someone who is not tech savvy I hope to learn a lot during the next five weeks.

Setting up social media was a bit annoying. I’ve always been an active user of Instagram and Facebook. I use YouTube daily, but haven’t posted anything before. I registered myself to twitter back in the summer of 2009. However, I haven’t used it since December of 2014. Flickr was frustrating. After fixing network issues, I was able to start uploading.

What gave me the most trouble was figuring out where I start. I have never had my own blog or website before. Some of the visual assignments were challenging. I want to purchase either Photoshop or something equivalent. Making sure everything is in the right space and tagged right makes me anxious. I enjoyed the scavenger hunt the most. It was easy, but the challenge was taking all those pictures in 15 minutes, because I went over the time allotted.

As mentioned before if I could do it differently, I would have started this all Tuesday evening when I joined the class. My questions will most likely answer themselves, but most are how do I make my blog appear more appealing. Any questions I do have I’ll bring up next week with the conference with the professor.

I think I rushed my assignments. Had I not waited I would have been able to put more work into the assignments. I was only able to do one Daily Create because of this.

When it came to designing my blog I wanted simplicity. I want it to be easy to navigate. It should be easy to find things. I will continue to play with the settings and customization in the weeks ahead.
