My favorite assignment

For this project, we were expected to write on what makes us happy on the internet. I talked about how youtube lessons helped me with my natural 4c hair. This is the post where I discussed how tough it has been for me to keep my natural 4c hair. Finally, I demonstrate my new hairdo.

Assignment 2

This assignments is about making my first GIF & GIF Post Narratives.  I learned to use GIF using Giph.com . I use gifs in my post to show off the skills . Check it out my first gif post.

“We had our first class using Zoom. The professor gave an introduction to CT101. I had the opportunity to meet each and every one of my classmates. I think it was fun and chill. To be honest, I’m also excited for this class since it will motivate me to learn sign languages. “

Assignment 3

I remember creating my first meme post and here I just wanted to share my first meme I ever created which was about CT 101

Assignment  4

Digital Storytelling Project Flexibility  is to pick a assignment that you like on the website. The assignment that I  picked was to Design a poster for an upcoming event, it could be a concert, a car show, really anything I want, the event can even be made up . THIS ASSIGNMENT WAS SELECTED BECAUSE I ENJOY BEING CREATIVE WHEN MAKING POSTERS.

Assignment 5

This post was about learning about how creativity and  immediacy. I wrote that ” In my opinion, creativity comes first, followed by intuition, and last, immediacy. Creativity, as the name implies, is the act of creating or inventing something that did not exist previously. It’s an excellent technique to prepare for intuition since it sets the environment for the flexibility of creative thought to arise. Creativity is a personal process that cannot be forced; it is, by definition, spontaneous.It’s immediate, as is all intuition, and there’s no conscious understanding of how the mind came up with the idea. A good creative balances strategy and intuition, trusting their instincts just as much as their skill.”

Assignment 6

This is the semester recap and bascaily summarized my experiences so far in class ct101. Ways I have improves and things I need to work on.

Assignment 7

This post I talk about finding the perfect domain name and  I ended up picking Cookwitheliz.org. The process was not easy but the zoom video definitely made it easier.

The Internet infrastructure relies heavily on domain names. They give any web server on the Internet a human-readable address.   A public IP address, either an IPv4 or IPv6 address, may be used to contact any Internet-connected machine. 

Computers can readily handle such addresses, but humans have a difficult time determining who runs the server or what services the website provides. IP addresses are difficult to recall and are subject to change.  We employ human-readable addresses known as domain names to overcome all of these issues.  I’ve had a few domain name suggestions.

Cookwitheliz.org

Toluokijfoodi.com

 Entertainnow.org

Assignment 8

This is my process of reclaiming hosting and downloading word press so I can start the process of my website. This process was not hard but I had to be very careful and make sure their was no mistake but I was able to get it done and download word press.

I then authenticate my account by entering the required information and using the offered promo code.I finished the order and checked my email for my account details and an email verification. I download WordPress. Please visit my website, cookwitheliz.com, even though I have not yet added anything to it. It is quite great to have my own website.

This is the process of me beginning to choose a templet for my website and searching for the appropriate video that will teach me how to make my website appear the way I want it to. Thanks to the professor zoom video and the YouTube video below, I was able to discover a fantastic TEMPLET for my website and design.

I wanted to expand my understanding of WordPress and learn more about how to create a beautiful website that will entice visitors to want to remain on it, so I went to YouTube and found this video that piqued my interest.

I began personalizing my website by first modifying the theme. I make the decision to download Astra. Astra is a stunning WordPress theme that is fast, highly adaptable, and appropriate for a blog, personal portfolio, company website, and WooCommerce marketplace. It is really light.

 

I choose to download a beginning template that will provide me with website template possibilities that I may customize for my own website. This is referred to as a beginning template.  With the Starter Templates plugin, you can create professional-looking, pixel-perfect websites in minutes. This plugin offers me access to 280+ pre-made whole website templates and individual pages for Elementor, Beaver Builder, and the Block Editor, which are my favorite page builders. I was able to choose a free template to assist my website get started with this plugin.

How many points have I earned so far and what grade do I think I deserve? What did you enjoy about our class and how you will apply your new skills into the world? 

 In this class, I should be able to get 95 In this class, I evaluate my performance through self-reflection, looking at how my work develops week by week with the many post. Every week, I made a new post that helps me learn and progress. Every week, I learned something new and incorporate it into my post. I’m an introvert so I have  learned to be more comfortable with expressing myself. In the last several weeks, I’ve learnt a lot about gifs and memes. In the beginning i didn’t know hyperlink which can i do very easily. I’ve learned about a number of websites that can help me design or produce anything in the future. Imgur and Giphy are excellent venues for experimenting with and creating GIFS.  I also learn how to build my own website through Wordpress and how to find a great domain and host. Make a Meme — use some of the Internet’s most well-known templates to create a meme. Project prompts are organized by media kinds in the DS106 Assignment Repository.

 

 

A quick tour of my website

You may read about my recent blog by following the links on the home page. When you click on About, you’ll learn more about me, and next to it, you’ll discover Contacts, which will tell you how and when you may reach me.

Will you maintain and keep up your new website? If so, how? If not, Why not?

Yes I will still continue to maintain my website and share them with my family so they can read and share them with their friends that want to learn how to cook or just curious about Nigerian food.

Today is the last post and the final. This past few months I have learned a lot and I have grown a lot too. To getting out of my comfort zone, being more open and sharing more than I’m always willing to share with other. But it has been a incredible journey. From creating my first ct101 memes to learning how to use hyperlink, finding my domain name, finding a hosting and downloading wordpress, lastly building my own website. It has been bitter sweet.
