For my ECMP355 class, we had Sue Waters as a guest speaker to talk to us about blogging. Sue had many great tips for us to improve our blogs, most of which I had already played around with in my ECS210 class last semester but her tips were in better detail.
Some things that I learned and implemented:
- I created new pages on my blog so that it is easier to navigate. I created a page for ECMP355 where all my posts for the class will go as well as sub-pages for specific topics such as tech tasks or weekly reflections.
- I learned a bit more about categories. Last week I played around with them because I had no idea what they were for. I created some categories and organized all my posts in the categories. Sue helped me to verify that what I was doing was more or less correct and I knew I was on the right track
- I also learned how to make headings in my posts so that it is easier for viewers to read, as well as put pictures in my blog that have proper attribution. I have not implemented these just yet, but I plan on doing it in my future posts
