Intro- Make a Blog

Tip: Text too small/large? Hold down the command ⌘ key on your keyboard, and press + or  keys to make content larger or smaller.

Be like water making its way through cracks. Do not be assertive, but adjust to the object, and you shall find a way around or through it.

-Lee Jun-fan

This class isn’t focused on a vast amount of content, but rather spending a lot of time on the content we focus on. While it is not intensive in facts or details, it is work intensive in utilizing and applying skills. The goal is for you to gain the ability to manipulate your knowledge and ability to create a wide array of products. If you put your mind to it, you may find you can accomplish more than you expect.

Your first computer-based assignment will be to create a blog through Google’s Blogger.

Blogger allows a lot of customization. As long as its appropriate and legible, you may design your blog to look in a way you find visually appealing.

If you get stuck or need help, let me know!
