Share your Website’s URL & Some Social Media Fun
This week in CT101 we will share and explore each others websites, learn about creating and adding social media content into our posts – (this might be your own work or work taken from your favorite feeds / brands / people) to expand your narratives. We will also chat about “custom links” and how to add them to your websites navigation menu structure. Of course I will record this process during Zoom and post the video here below afterwards.
Here we are 3 weeks into being the proud owners of a shiny new Website! We are customizing our pages, building menu navigation, tweaking colors and fonts, and blogging away into oblivion! It is exciting, and discovering new ways to create and share content are a big part of this process.

**The Assignment for this week: (2 parts)
First: Its time to share your website’s URL, please add it to the comments section below in this blog post (My example is already there as an example, your URL should look similar with your own domain name)
Simply leave a comment below sharing your website’s address and press the “Post Comment” button!
Be sure to include the – http:// part. (some of your have added https:// – thats OK too)

Second: Explore some of the website’s of your fellow classmates! Leave them a comment, or two about their progress directly on their website! Then, write a blog post here on CT101 OR on your own new website sharing your thoughts and feedback about discovering your classmate’s websites. Be sure to include their URL in your post (and hyperlink it!) What do you like about the websites that you discovered? Did you find a favorite blog post, or project? Share it! Give some feedback!
And, Why are we doing this?
Well, to share our development, support for each other and their process of course! Maybe your classmates and peers missed your last few posts and are in need of some feedback, inspiration and contrast. Lets dig in!
Part 2 – Adding Social Feeds & Posts to WordPress
Its not that hard! I promise – Its time to talk about the impact of social media and the many roles it can play in our storytelling and blogging practice.
The recording this week will walk you through the process of embedding social media content and related media that you see taken from the class zoom sessions. Please consider adding some of these tips and tricks into YOUR websites posts, pages or sidebar widgets!
