ASSIGNMENT # 8 : WORDPRESS CUSTOMIZING SERIES PART 1 FIRST BLOG POST

HEY FOODIES , IT’S YOUR GIRL BREE. THIS SITE WILL BE YOUR GUIDE TO TRANSITION INTO VEGANSIM, VEGAN RECIPES , & INFORMATION ON VEGAN ALTERNATIVES. FOR MY FIRST POST I THOUGHT I’D GIVE YOU GUYS A LITTLE INTRO INTO WHAT MADE ME TRANSITION INTO VEGANSIM. I FOUND OUT ABOUT VEGANSIM BACK IN 2017 WHEN I FIRST FOUND OUT ABOUT DR. SEBI . DR SEBI IS A HERBALIST THAT HAS CURED HUNDREDS OF PATIENTS USING HERBS AND BY GUIDING THEM TO CHANGE THEIR DIETS TO A VEGAN DIET. WHAT REALLY INTRIGUED ME THE MOST ABOUT HIS DIET IS THAT HE HELPED CURED PEOPLE THAT HAD INCURABLE DISEASES USING HIS DIET. I WAS EXTREMELY IMPRESSED HE WAS ALSO ONE OF THE VERY FEW PEOPLE IN THE WORLD TO EVER WIN A CASE AGAINST THE SUPREME COURT.EVEN THOUGH I FOUND OUT ALL OF THIS INFORMATION IN 2017 I WOULD SAY THAT PERSONALLY I DIDN’T CARE TO START TAKING THIS INFORMATION SERIOUSLY UNTIL 2020. COVID HIT AND I STARTED REALIZING HOW MUCH PEOPLE WERE DYING BY HAVING A WEAK IMMUNE SYSTEM AND THE CAUSE OF DISEASES WERE WHAT WE WERE EATING. I ALSO STARTED WORKING AT A HEALTH FOOD STORE IN 2020 AND THAT HELPED ME ON MY JOURNEY A LOT BECAUSE IT MADE ME REALIZE THE POWER OF HERBS AND A VEGAN DIET. IT FELT GOOD KNOWING THAT I HELPED PEOPLE GET RID OF COVID, HEALTH PROBLEMS , & MORE. WHAT MADE ME GET INTO COOKING NOW IS ALSO THE FACT THAT MY CUSTOMERS WOULD ENJOY MY FOOD AND COULDN’T BELIEVE THAT IT WAS VEGAN AND THAT’S WHAT MADE ME FEEL GOOD THE MOST. SHOWING PEOPLE THAT I CAN NOT ONLY MAKE SURE THEY’RE EATING HEALTHY AND ALSO MAKING SURE THAT IT TASTES GOOD TRULY MAKES ME HAPPY AND THAT’S WHERE MY JOURNEY STARTED. FAST FORWARD HERE WE ARE NOW WHERE I SERVE AND CATER VEGAN FOOD , GIVE VEGAN RECIPES , AND HELP PEOPLE IMPROVE THEIR HEALTH AND I TRULY CANNOT WAIT TO SHARE THIS JOURNEY WITH YOU GUYS

My New Post About Paranormal Horror Movies

By James – 5/5/21

Hi all, check out my latest post about paranormal horror movies…

My New Post About Paranormal Horror Movies

Today, I was thinking about how difficult this semester was for me and one of my guilty pleasures that helped me survive, other than hot cheese popcorn 😃.  That’s paranormal horror movies.  I love them.  I can’t get enough of them, especially the ones with good story lines.  The ones that are based on actual events really get my attention.  Check out my above new post…feel free to drop a comment! ☺️

CROSS SOCIAL FEED

During my 39th Birthday weekend. I got to spend some much needed time with family. This is where I would normally drop a few photos to share the experience with you guys but I’m still working on getting the aesthetics, functionality, and interface of my website to my liking. I can see/feel this will be my summer project. But I made a quick video of me shooting my cousins bow & arrow which my sister got a huge kick out of. And I’m working on sharing some photos from the event in the near future.

My new Website + It’s Use

New Website Alert!

Hey guys!

So after thinking long and hard about what my new website should be about, I got nowhere lol. I simply just decided for my website to be a blog of my adventures.  A blog where you guys can take a sneak peek into my life through the use of images!

The name of my website is EYECONIC! 

I wanted my website to have a different and creative name. My name is so boring and common that even I’m tired of it Lol.

Vinka’s amazing website

Vinka’s website was so awesome that just reading the title made me hungry. I was able to relate to her first post about Korean barbecue because I, too, enjoy k-bbq. The website has encouraged and motivated me to start a video blog about foods from different cultures. The website’s message of wanting to try new foods all over New York appeals to me. I adore everything about the website; the only suggestion I can make is to brighten it up, particularly because she talks about food. Don’t get me wrong, I love the color black, but it needs to have a brighter vibe to keep people engaged, particularly with her material.

Check Out Vinka’s website- https://vinikaeats.com/

 

Classmates Website Feedback

 

Bazán’s Website Screenshot

One of my favorite websites to explore was Bazán’s. Her website was very organized, user-friendly, and put together. The comments section was detailed, allowing her to engage back with her viewers. The homepage was very to the point with her work, and every story even had a time estimate which is an excellent addition for anyone that wants a quick read. My only advice would be to add the SSL plugin to secure your website. Overall, it is inspiring to see her website this developed in 3 weeks; and I’m looking forward to checking back in at the end of the semester. Great job Bazán!

The WordPress Customizing Series, Part 1

My Website is live!!! This is an exciting time for me because I have always wanted to create a Website.

 

Working in the creative field, I work on unique projects that get put out in the real world. However, it has always been hard to showcase my work because I didn’t have a website or used applications like LinkedIn, where the industry demands were so different from mine. When I was looking for a job, I would’ve had to individually send portfolios to various companies and startups, which added an extra step for me and was tedious.

With the launch of tashidostu.com and learning how to create a Website, I look forward to getting rid of my old ways and publishing my portfolio digitally. This online studio will be a place where I showcase all my creative work in mediums such as styling, photography, and Adobe Creative Cloud. 

Ultimately, it will be a one-stop-shop for all my services and create a more fluid experience for companies looking to hire.

 

 

About My Classmates’ Website

 

Its been quite a journey. It’s like it was yesterday when we started this class and all thought it was going to be a traditional class. I’m happy that we’re all in the process of building our websites.  I enjoyed going through all your websites but Vinika’s was most striking to me due to its potential and my love for food!

 

As aforementioned,  love to eat food and I love trying out new foods. Fortunately, I live in NYC where there are like a bazillion places to eat with even more variety.. This is a both a blessing and a curse because all the good restaurants are just sitting there, waiting to be discovered. For example, If you live in Brooklyn you would know little about an amazing taco spot that’s in queens or a great Mediterranean spot that’s in Astoria. Thanks to Vinika, more places to eat would be readily recommended on her website weekly. I have a feeling this website is going to contain a lot of photographs and I’m here for it. These photographs would help to showcase the menus and atmosphere of the restaurants she decides to post on the website. Here’s a quick snapshot of the website layout.

 

Seriously, Vinika I wish I would’ve came up with this idea. Here’s some inspiration/future plans for your website you can consider. You can make the website the unofficial restaurant magazine site for Local restaurants. Who knows, when you get enough traction on the site, you can even start to charge restaurants a small fee for promoting their restaurants, The restaurant benefits from the additional social media exposure and you benefit with more money in your pockets! This website of yours has serious potential. I hope you continue to work on it and grow it, even after the semester is over.

 

I look forward to her recommendations so I can try out these restaurants ASAP.

 

 

 

So, What is copyright?

This week, lets delve into copyright…

So, What is copyright?

From the content below (and there is a lot of great stuff to explore) please select a blogging prompt to respond to – you should respond to at least one but of course you can respond to all of them!

Why is there copyright?

How much should users of the web think about copyright as you and others share, re-share, and remix content on the web?

What is fair use? Think about these questions and watch Larry Lessig’s TEDTalk  – How creativity is being strangled by the law

*You can publish your work here on CT101 OR your personal website and then share that link on CT101*

**Assignment Option #1– In a new blog post, find a quote from the Larry Lessig talk (link above) that you find compelling and tell us why. Also respond to the questions posed above. 

 

 

As a further reflection on “fairness” and fair use consider two cases that actually tangled with the legal system under copyright law. First, Andy Baio a software developer for Kickstarter writes and speaks about his experience being sued by a photographer and is forced to settle and pay thousands of dollars. This is despite the fact he believes the law is on his side and so does his pro-bono counsel the EFF.

 

https://www.creativemornings.com/talks/andy-baio/2  <- link to the video

 

Second famous appropriation artist Richard Prince is sued by photographer Patrick Cariou for Prince’s use of Cariou’s photographs in a number of collages. At first the courts sided with Cariou the photographer, but then on the appeals court reversed the decision in favor of the Prince’s remixes being fair use.

**Assignment Option #2 – In a new blog post, find a quote from both Andy Baio’s case and Richard Prince’s case that you agree with, disagree with, or both. Tell us why. Also tell us whether you think law around fair use is working. How would you change copyright law and fair use if you were in charge. 

**Assignment Option #3– In a new blog post – Digital Storytelling Prompt on Fair Use – Create an image, GIF, video, and/or piece of audio that reworks a quote and/or image found in any of the linked essays or videos above. Think about possibly creating a poster that uses an image and quote (https://photopea.com will help). Or create a video or audio remix that samples from the Andy Baio and/or Larry Lessig talks. Or maybe come up with something on your own that is inspired by these discussions. In your post, remember to use hyper-links to reference texts incorporated in your work as well as give context to the work.

Have Fun!

Week #10

In my previous post, I stated that I would be doing stories in my blog post. I do not know what genre I will put yet, such as romance and scary stories. However, I stay true to writing stories. While my writing drive is not the same as before, this is something that I would still like to do. I could give it a shot, and I’ll try to make some interesting stories. I will try to do short stories for the website, at least for now. I will try to come up with creative ideas.

I had stated that I was thinking about adding music. I do not think I will add music after all. But, I will describe how different shows and books have inspired me. One book that inspired me to write stories is Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief.

I read this book in high school and I was invested in it. It made me enjoy reading and gave me thoughts that I could write like this. I will definitely recommend this book to anyone that hasn’t read it. I would put how books like this inspired me to write in my first blog. 

I will start posting on how the website is going to be and I will be posting on the website. http://wilts-stories.com/ 

Week 8 & 9

I did it, I made my own website. http://wilts-stories.com/ is the name of my website. This took me a while to decide because I wanted a name to represent something that I liked. I’m a person that used to write stories and draw, so I wanted something a bit easy for me. The names that I had thought of before were Geronimo-animations, Geronimo-ideas, Wilts-comics, Wilts-stories, Geronimo-wilts passion, Wilts-episodes, and Geronimo-episodes. Now I have decided to go with Wilts-stories. 

Now as for what I will be posting, I believe I will start off with writing stories. I can’t write comics yet. If I could, I would try some things with Geronimo himself. This mouse is cool to me 

There’s a good chance that I will add other things to my website. I may add some music I like listening to, some animes that I watch, or even games that I play. If anything, I would add any animes that inspire me to write such as death note, and assassination classroom.

This anime actually helped give me some inspiring ideas and made me start writing. So, I could use this on my website if anything.

This anime helped give me more inspirational ideas by showing how a teacher could help his students in multiple ways, and give them creative ideas. Ryan has given me the opportunity to use creative ideas in this class. 

I may or may not add listening to music on my website. I love music and I love vibing to it. I’m debating on if I will. That’s up to the future. If I do, I’ll be dancing for sure

Thoughts on My Classmates’ Websites

First off, I looked at quite a few websites and its’ so good to see how far everyone’s come and I can also relate to the struggles that many of my classmates have in regard to their websites’ customization.

Exploring Websites

The first website I visited was Angel’s: http://angeldejesus.com/

His website is very user friendly. So far his customized widgets makes navigating his website pretty easy. Since his website’s domain name is his very own name it is also helpful that a lot of his website’s features reflect who he is. As a first time visitor to his website, even if I didn’t know who he was from our class, I certainly would’ve known after exploring his site because he added that personal touch to his work.

The second website I visited was Justin’s: https://cutsbyjuss.com/

Justin’s website is used to promote his talent and business and from interacting on the site I could tell he’s put a lot of work into making his site reflect who he is and what his interests are. His first blog post is very informative and he even adds YouTube links so that his readers get an idea of what he is referring to. Even though I’ve never paid attention to anything about haircuts, his posts and customized website gave me enough information.

After looking at these websites, all I can say is that by the end of the semester, everyone’s work is going to look great!

(Of course my post wouldn’t be complete without a Luffy GIF)
