- After reading this page, take some time to continue your tutorials
- Update your website with at least one internal and at least one external link
- If you set up your home page the way Mr. Koutsky required, it is likely a blog page; please change that blog page to something else (portfolio, or 2nd blog, or whatever makes sense), create a new home page and write a paragraph about your entire site. The Home page is unique from every other page on your website in that, rather than explain what the page is, you're explaining what the entire site is about. This is a good opportunity to add links to other pages with statements such as, "Click this highlighted text to visit my blog page, to see what I've been doing in class," or "Click this link to go to my Contact page & send me a note, or ask a question."
- Later in the class, check back on this site, as I am going to begin adding the previous days' "Word-of-the-Day" page daily. (Hint: you may want to create a "Resources" or "Links" page to your site, with an external link to my "Word-of-the-Day" page.) This will also fulfill the requirement to figure out the best place to make it a sub-page
Continue working on your next assignment, which is the portrait assignment. Begin by creating (or updating) your current proposal to take portraits of each other, self-portraits, etc., and get out of the classroom to take some of those shots. Remember to be specific in your proposals with:
- Who are you taking with you?
- Where (precisely) are you going on campus?
- How long will you be gone? (not more than 20 minutes at a time, please)
When you return, open up and edit your photos, taking screen captures of them, to add to your reflective blog page, as samples -- especially since you're shooting different scenes in different locations, with different lighting conditions -- even though the subject matter (portraits) will not be changing from photo-to-photo.
