Final Revisions (Extra Credit)

As a final revision to many of my posts I decided to remove the title of the assignments out of the title. This transition created a much more intriguing environment on the site and made it more accessible. Including “Built Environment Analysis” or “Annotated Bibliographies” in the title is redundant as the category section for each post is included for this purpose. Adding intriguing titles also creates a more interactive site as outside viewers are more likely to get a glimpse of what the page entails through the title. I also  decided to tag more of my posts with more tags which will increase the sites visibility on search  engines Having more prominence on search engines will increase site traffic and possibly allow my work to benefit...

Revise and Edit (Extra Credit)

For the majority of the revisions, I changed or added tags of each blog post. Many of these posts did not have any categories or tags, and Mrs. A preferred that all students categorize their posts in order to have more organization and specification for their work. For example, my “Formal BED- Trader Joe’s” post was missing tags and categories. After adding labels to my post, it then helped sort the page by the topic it was about and made it more custom. It is also now combined with other posts about Trader Joe’s, other built internal environments, and built environment descriptions. Another example is from my “Insight into Zoo Atlanta’s Website- Digital BED” post. At first, all of my photos would only lead to the link of the picture after getting clicked on. I then went back and added links to the screenshots of the website, which opened up to the actual zoo website and allowed readers to see more of that page. Adding links to the headings of each artifact was also one of my other edits, and that helped the reader gain easy access to the site. This adds more visual attraction and convenience for the viewers who visit this post about Atlanta Zoo’s...

Blog Revisions

Once completed with the initial survey, I realized that I had a few major flaws in my web site that needed to be addressed. The first thing I went through and fixed was the lack of tags in a few of my posts. While I had tags for all of my posts, there was room for more detailed tags to draw more traffic through the page. I then went through each of my posts and changed the title to be more descriptive of the piece rather than the generic titles I previously had like, “Reading Summary #1.” I changed both of these so that my submissions could be more accessible and easily found by my peers.   What I wasn’t able to revise, but I would like to address, includes multi-media. A few of my posts did indeed include a photo or two, but as a whole my blog is pretty bare. More images would provide more detail to my posts and make the over all look of my blog more attractive. Just like the need for more media my blog could use more structure and design. I wish I had taken the time to play around with the theme of the blog and font to create a different atmosphere. Currently my blog is just a collection of information, whereas if it had been designed differently it could create a completely different tone and message with each of its posts.    ...

Class notes( 4/11/16)

What makes a good title: proves audience curiosity draws the audience in gives readers an idea of your thesis , or at least a specific idea of the topic your thesis comments Is descriptive but concise Does living in the city set children up for failure? To argumentative “Atlanta” instead of “This City” The pros and cons of growing Up In Atlanta- less focused on the negative Maybe inside the perimeter of Atlanta What makes a good Introduction Has a hook Begin with a anecdote or really striking example A...
