So for this week the required assignment was to find a web page and make it our own. Or the Storytelling Within the Web assignment. First I had to download the X Ray Goggles which was simple since I use Firefox on the regular. I then went and searched for a CraigsList Ad to mess up and I found an old antique sewing machine that I decided to mess around with! Now I don’t think I have mentioned this before but one of the shows I’ve been watching on Netflix is Supernatural and so I decided to make my new ad based off of the show. If you don’t know anything about the show – long story short – two brothers hunt the supernatural and save the world. I decided to use one of their episodes and pretend it was a haunted antique in that episode. Here’s the IMDb site of that specific episode in case anyone was curious. Basically I used Craigslist, made it Supernaturallist and went from there. This assignment was fun just because I actually got to mess around with a webpage and not be too terribly confuse by code and what not. But without having you all read much longer I give you my new remixed ad in a screenshot and the link below!
For this assignment Sally is applying to a job in Fredericksburg, VA. She’s actually applying to be a bartender at Capital Ale! Her resume is a little rough around the edges but she’s surprisingly super smart and active! Here’s to hoping she gets the job. All I did was use Word to produce this resume and posted it below.
This assignment was worth 3 stars.
For this assignment I decided to create my own search engine. I used the X-Ray Goggles and remade the Google page. It was pretty complicated because I could not for the life of me figure out how to change the Google logo, so now it’s a dingy little button. But I did have fun changing all the smaller tabs. The search engine is designed for college students who have procrastinated way too much this semester and need a hand in finding answers online. I did like making it though and hope you guys like reading what I changed everything to.
This assignment was worth 3.5 stars.
To start off this weeks worth of web assignments I made a BuzzFeed Quiz. I just had to join the community and make the quiz. It took a lot longer than I thought it would since I had to download all the images from Google. Also coming up with a topic was quite a bit of brainstorming but I got it. I did realize that one of my answers didn’t come up so it’s just a picture. It should say “I am if I want to win”.
I have two sisters and I love taking quizzes where I see who I am more like so I made one about us three! Take the quiz below (it’s hyperlinked) and let me know who you got!!!
This assignment was worth 4.5 stars.
For this assignment I decided to take to Pinterest and design my very own room! Now in the description for the assignment it says to make it as out of the box as you want, I like to say mine is out of the box chic! I’d love to have books and indoor plants everywhere and a wonderful, cozy lofted bed! Nothing like what the Westerners would sleep in. However I did add a few western accents such as pillows and cacti into the room. And who knows, maybe my large walk-n library will have Western classics in it. Check it out!
