Blog Portfolio 4: The Final Act-Juggling Html and Twitter

| | Comments (0)

Not much has changed since my last portfolio for Writing for the Internet. I'm still working with html, but with the help of a free program called Kompozer. It's one of those WYSIWYG (what you see is what you get) programs that lets you see what it is your making before putting it online. It's really helpful for making my site for class. On Twitter, I've been putting some html and template links besides Creative Writing links.

Interaction-Classmates blogs I've commented on.

Sophisticated Website-Bethany provides a link to her website and asks for opinions. I commented that the colors on the site blend well together which makes the text easier to read.

The Return of the Bane of My Existence-Stephanie finds an old USB (which had all of her work) that she thought she lost. To prevent this from happening again, she asked for advice about a better way of saving her stuff. I advised her to get an external hard drive.

Correction!-Stephanie says her previous love of html has turned into a love/hate relationship since html won't work properly unles it's perfect. Thanks to another classmate named DJ, she discovered a program on her Mac called iWeb (which is similar to Kompozer). I commented saying how I still love html, but I still have a lot to learn.

Writing Rhymes the Fun Way-Kaitlin found a site that lets you look at words that rhyme. She wrote her own poem which made me laugh. My comment was that I usually don't write poetry, but I might have to start because the site she found is so fun to use.
