Blog Portfolio the 3rd: Writing, More Writing, Coding, and Promoting
Since my last portfolio for Writing for the Internet, I did a project with April Minerd promoting SHU for the Griffin's Challenge. We had to make a 30-60 second video that captured the spirit of the university. We also did a piece of writing. You can find both here. Even though we both took pictures and video, April's the one responsible for making the final product look so awesome.
I've also been busy putting links on my Twitter to helpful writing sites.
My favorite bit is that we started learning html (the coding used to make web pages) using the book Creating a Web Page with HTML by Elizabeth Castro. It's a great book for beginners so you should buy it if you're interested in learning html.
Interaction-Classmates blogs that I've commented on.
Blogging as Goal Fulfillment-April talks about how the world of blogging is so competitive. She also includes a clip from the movie Julie and Julia to emphasis how blogging is a commitment. My comment was about how the number of bloggers is mind boggling.

The Story Begins...-Kaitlin creates her own interactive fiction story. I only did one story line and I died after eating a Cheez-It, thus only adding to my reasons for not liking them lol. After asking her how long it took her to make, she said that it took a few hours and that the hardest part was linking the entries together.
