For this course I’m working on two personal websites. One is tiacarrara.com featuring all my artwork, photo shoots and personal writing, which I created through weebly.com. Using reclaim domain I’ve created bestversionyou.com containing everything fitness, nutrition and lifestyle. During this semester I’m working on getting my certification through NASM for personal training and start my own business working with clients in and out of the gym through fitness training and goal setting. For the purposes of this class, I will be posting my reflections and weekly assignments through the ct101 blog post to maintain a professional standard for my personal use.
Did you sign-up for Reclaim Hosting this past week and get your domain? Did you install WordPress and get your first post edited? Did you start and get stuck? Did you stop? Did you ask for help? Did you work through the materials linked in Reflection 5 and Reflection 6?
Bonus in-class activity and reflection:
For students that signed up for hosting and got their site up and running, find a student or students to help. Ask the questions posed above and record the students’ answers. Get them (re)started on the process. For each student you help and provide the answers to these questions you will receive 20 points. You must report the results in a blog post including the answers to the questions and link(s) to the site(s) created by the student(s) you helped.
For students that did not sign up for hosting and/or did not get their site up and running, find a student that did successfully get their site up. Honestly answer the questions above with a student that is interested in helping you. Complete the sign-up process and get your site up and running. Add your site to the submission form. Edit the ‘Hello World’ blog post on your site and report your answers to the questions you described to the student who helped you. Also, describe what you will do differently for future assignments that you struggle to complete and/or did not notice need to be completed. Receive 20 points for this bonus reflection post.
I got my site going, it’s quite interesting. The best part of this activity was that I was able to help my classmate Maggie sign-up for Reclaim Hosting and setup her domain. when I asked Maggie about her domain and Reclaim Hosting, she was at a total lost. I asked her “did you sign-up for Reclaim Hosting this past week and get your domain?” She said she was not sure how to go about getting the activity done. She said she was in class when we discussed it but it was very unclear to her. So we got started and took it step by step to create the domain. I followed the instructions and guidelines that were on the youtube tutorial which showed the signup process with Reclaim Hosting and how to install WordPress in the cPanel.
Then eventually, I asked her “did you install WordPress and get your first post edited?” She said she did not, and she was not sure how to do that. I then gave her a tutorial in installing WordPress and and then she created her first post. She said that she had started earlier and she did indeed get stuck, and she had paused a little. She then asked me for help,and I followed some of the steps that were on Reflection 5 and partially Reflection 6. Her site is up and running and she is making new posts.
