Assignment Summary Posts

For every assignment, you will be required to submit a summary post by the weekly deadline. These posts should include links to or embedded media from all the work you have done for the week: storytelling assignments, daily creates, reflections, etc. In addition, you should use this post to reflect upon your activity of the week:

  • How well do you feel you completed the requirements of the week’s assignments?
  • What gave you trouble? What did you enjoy most? What did you learn?
  • What would you do differently? What questions do you have?
  • What are some of the larger issues surrounding your work? Cultural/Societal implications?

These weekly summaries are what we will use to find all of your weekly work as we determine your grade for that week. In addition, they are an opportunity for you to tell us how you feel you are doing and what’s giving you trouble, overall, in the course. If you forget to include something in a weekly post, we may not realize you’ve completed it. If you fail to submit a weekly summary, you will get no grade for that week!

  1. 1. Commentary on Setting Up your Domain and Social media –
    I had set up a blog when I first came to UMW so that I could start posting some of the short stories I had written and talk about my writing journey. It was challenging for me because I had no guidance and I was doing it all on my own. It took a lot of trial and error to get everything how I wanted it but I ended up learning quite a bit about setting up a blog. The social media was much easier as I already had most of the required accounts. I had fun learning about all the different platforms and getting the new accounts I needed up and running.
    I was able to respond to a fellow student’s comment where she asked me some questions about posting on my blog. It felt really good to answer some of her questions and she gave me constructive criticism on one of the short stories on my site.
    One thing I would have done differently is more planning in the initial stages. I was so eager to have my sight finished that I skipped over steps that I had to go back and do after.

    3. Commentary on Customizing your blog
    This part was the most fun for me, even though I did it a couple of months ago. I worked for hours on finding images I wanted to use, creating the different pages, and choosing colours. WordPress has so many different tools and I tried to utilize as many as possible. I also received my first comment on one of my posts and it was super exciting to get the message to approve it. I also was able to set up a subscription form so people can be notified of when I post new things.
