In the words of my professor GOOGLE IT but no I admit I actually went to a good friend for help who is in the same class to do a tutorial on my final blog post. With allergy season among us I feel like crap and my voice sounds like it. So with the help of that dear friend and Tiny Take I was able to create this last blog post for my CT class final but not my blog.

My website is a collection of what I have done in my CT 101 class this spring semester.

CT 101 Digital Storytelling End of Semester Blog/Site Check-in

Site Name: Lay

Customizations made, check and respond to all that apply

Custom tagline

Give your domain name and describe how and if it relates to your site title: My domain name is Laylosaennovy.com and my site title is Lay. This domain name relates to my site title because laylosa is my first name pronounced and ennovy is my middle name Yvonne spelled backwards.

Name of Site Theme:  Panaroma by SKT themes

Customizations made, check and respond to all that apply

For my header I put my sites name and custom tagline, as well as a custom menu, and a custom background image.

Site Layout: If you have a custom header, background, and/or homepage describe the choices you made and why:The layout for my website is eye catching and is virtually appealing. I used this theme because I really liked the way it looked though I’m still discovering it’s many functions. On the bottom of my webpage I have Follow Us which leads blog viewers to my Facebook, Twitter and Google account. I want to change it to my header when I figure out how. 

Pages:Describe the Title and purpose for each page on your site: About Me, Radio/TV Pieces (SoundCloud, YouTube), K-Pop, Everyday Life GIFs

Page 1 Radio/TV Pieces 

635677291594728300

Dedicated to my radio pieces and TV pieces that I produced and directed myself. It send’s blog visitors to my SoundCloud and YouTube account so that they can view my work. 

Page 2 K-Pop

635677292724966332    635677293430627524

As a fan of Korean pop music since 2009 my love for their culture has grown. This page is dedicated to my love for everything Korean. From the music, dramas/movies/variety shows, food and Korean fans reviews.

Page 3 Everyday Life in GIF’s

635677294434563411

Events that happens to me on a daily basis that sometimes surprise me and sometimes they don’t. Gif’s that I have created and some I haven’t will be used to express my viewpoints and opinions. 

Menu/Navigation: The navigation menu is front and center when you enter my blog. They are placed vertically and there are photos along with titles to send you to the page of your choice. 

Sidebars/Custom Features: What content do you have in sidebars? How did you choose? Do you have other custom features to your theme, such as custom homepage with a slider, and/or featured images for posts, etc. How are you using these theme customization’s?

I have a left side bar with my recent blog posts for that month. Also categories are there with a drop down list so you can easily click any of my blog posts. I choose the left side bar based on where I believe the eyes first look when they enter any website. For me personally I always look to the left. I am looking to add featured images for each posts to add life to the each page because before you click on the post the page looks too dull for my liking.

Final Thoughts: Describe any other aspects about the customization of your site not covered that you’d like to write about: The future of my site I definitely plan to continue using it I will probably change my domain name to something easier so when I tell people where to go it will be easier for them. Maybe my initials LYI.com and then work on a more creative site name because Lay isn’t really cutting it for me plus I don’t want people getting confused with the chips. I want to learn how to customize it more and make it popular I know I will have to market myself to make that possible. I want to figure out how to use some of the customization tools and sample different themes. I’m not completely sold my current theme though I like I want to love it and be proud of it. I do love having my own domain name it’s something I can call my own. Creating GIF’s was by far my favorite and incorporating the gifs in my personal stories was even more liberating.

End of the Road

In the words of the LostProphetsWill we make a mark this time? Will we always say we tried”? I know I tried to do this post by Sunday but between finals week creeping up on me. I completely lost track of time not that my mind was elsewhere but it was drained with trying to remembering all this useless information I will probably forget when the end of the term hits. I did have fun in this class I will admit and I will continue this blog to the best of my abilities and try to market myself more on this wide world web that has become some people’s lives. For now I will keep my account with Reclaim Hosting active along with my domain name. I will keep the domain name and map it to a service like Tumblr and if I can Instagram because I’m on that site all the time.

I love having my own domain name it’s something I can call my own and as time goes by I can be proud of the site. Creating GIF’s was by far my favorite and incorporating the gifs in my personal stories was even more liberating.  I will probably focus more on my love for the Korean culture.

From the addictive music ….

to the addicting dramas….

hilarious variety shows….

and of course the yummy food

Goodbye everyone enjoy your summer try to relax and party

for those who are graduating I wish you nothing but the best of luck.

Growing up with my mom we never really were close until I hit 16 and my grandmother passed away. After that I started getting nightmares and I would wake u crying. That was a sign for me to change and since then my mom has become my best friend. From the age of 17 I started taking my mom out for mother’s day, her birthday and my birthday. We still bond regardless of what is going on in our lives I talk to her about everything and I mean everything. She is the only person in my life living who hasn’t let me down and I don’t believe she ever will.

With social media becoming popular more and more each day teens around the country resort to bonding with each other. Over dares or challenges, recording themselves doing it and then uploading the videos on social media

The latest challenge is the Kylie Jenner lip challenge where our youth take a shot glass or and other suction. Place it over their lips and after a few minutes the pull and BAM their lips become bigger.

Some accomplish the challenges others fail miserably.

All I have to say this makes me wonder about the youth of our country and when I see them do the dumbest things.

I already know two things.

1. This why the rest of the world deems Americans as stupid.

2. Our future generation will further prove everyone right.
