Week One – Completed

When I started setting up my blog, I ran into a little bit of trouble.  I hadn’t realized that I created a website last year and completely forgot about it!  I called the digital knowledge center for help and they got everything squared away for me.  I already had a twitter and google account which made that part easy.  Although, I had never used soundcloud or flickr.  Thankfully, they were easy to use.  Overall, I had a good experience creating my web domain and social media accounts.

Multi-model introduction

I had fun playing around with all of the different types of themes.  What I like about creating my own blog is that I can customize it to fit my personality.  Overall, I find it easy to use and I learn new things about it everyday.

Visual Storytelling Reflection:

After this week, I feel more comfortable with Visual Storytelling than I did before starting this course.  I’ve learned a lot; from creating my own blog to photo shopping pictures.  It was definitely challenging because I am new to picture and video editing.  I had to google and watch many different video tutorials on how to do some of the assignments but in the end, it was all worth it.

I think I completed these assignments to the best of my ability.  It took a lot of time and effort but I am satisfied with my work.  I had trouble with Saturday’s daily create.  It was to make a video for Sandy Jensen saying happy birthday and changing the background of the video to something I think is “dreamy.”  I tried so many different types of video editing software and nothing seemed to work.  I ended up asking for help in the discussion board on Canvas.  Someone did answer my question but I didn’t see it until today which was too late.  I got so frustrated with it, I ended up skipping it and waited to do my last daily create today (which I know is bad waiting for the last minute).  However, I really enjoyed the assignment where I got to Photoshop the faces of my cousin and her 3 year old daughter.  I thought it was really amusing seeing my cousin’s head on her daughter’s body and vice-versa.  If I were to do this week differently, I would have done a few daily creates earlier in the week instead of waiting until the last minute.  I think what I have to get use to is managing my time wisely.  I spent most of my time googling and watching video tutorials.  I think if i learn to google the right thing, it would be more helpful to me in the long run.
