Who knew creating your own website would make you feel kind of awesome? My first minisite focused on the negative aspects of technology and the arguments of Klosterman and Carr. I chose paragraphs that highlighted how we are becoming so attached to technology, which is proving more and more not to be a good thing.
In creating my minisite, I did not run into too many problems. It was extremely helpful to do the microsite in class last week! However, I did find myself forgetting to put the end brackets on tags sometimes, especially the <p> tags. It also took me a while to figure out what images I wanted to use and what size they should be. Additionally, I wanted to hyperlink to another website that I used in my first blog post, however, the hyperlink would be my footer and not the words I did the <a href=> tag for. Unfortunately, I was not able to solve the problem… but I will ask Dr. Delwiche about it later.
Overall, I thought my minisite experience was great and I can’t wait to get better!
