—Comments on classmates’ social media—
- I commented on Kelsey’s page because she caught my attention when her blog started off with, my first ever blog, because as for myself, I am a first time blogger like she is. It was quite confusing at first, but she see, s to have gotten the hang of it and I loved the layout and header picture she used!
- On Katherine’s page, I also visited her blog as well as her twitter. The few words that described her sounded like someone describing the person I am. And then on her blog, I saw she was from the mountains, and that is something that is totally opposite of what I am used to, the beach, and was curious where in the mountains she had lived!
- On Rachel’s blog, her title “Women who behave rarely make history” is a phrase a lot of my friends used growing up. Something fun and a little catchy to keep us on track, yet still have good teenage years! I also read that she hasn’t decided on a major and I know that could be stressful at times, so definitely wanted to let her know that, if need be, I could help with any questions she had, or at least try to. (Not like I am a genius or anything, just trying to help out any way I can!)
Above are various links to each social media site I have created and did a little introduction of myself and things I am interested in. On vimeo, there is a quick video of me talking about, well me. On twitter, I posted a status of a few things I like and a picture of my softball photo shoot. On SoundCloud, I had recorded a country song by Brantley Gilbert, Kick it in the Sticks, because it sums up what I like doing in my spare time as well as what type of music I listen to. On Flickr, I posted a few pictures of my family, boyfriend, and a few other pictures from over the summer!
On my blog page, I have named it Ashleigh Marie, with the sub comment of “…Just another blog spot”. I chose that name because anyone who knows me, and as each person in ds106 gets to know me, that’s what everyone calls me to get my attention (or if I am in trouble, hopefully that won’t be the case). As for the design, I chose a quote to use as my header, and I am a huge fan of all quotes, so I am sure I will change my header a million times this semester, just a heads up! As for the background, I currently chose something simple, black so that it could go with anything I choose as my header. I always like changes, so like my header, I am sure my background layout will change periodically as well. I had a lot of frustration starting off with this blog because I am knew to blogging, but I am getting the hang of it 🙂
As far as the first week of classes goes, I hope everyone is surviving (as best as they can 😉) & enjoying the good weather and being back with friends! In the first week of this class, I have learned, slowly but surely, how to use twitter, flickr, soundcloud, and getting used to blogging. I was a bit intimidated at first, but now that I am getting into the swing of things, I am very excited to see what all I can learn with each of these different sites and all the different types of media. I also wish the best for everyone this semester in DS106! 😆👌
