I think after this course I may still use my blog, or I may create a new domain on a more professional platform. I initially chose tumblr because I was more familiar with it than some of the other options, but when looking at other student blog’s I think the other options allowed for a bit more customization. While I can’t see myself blogging on a regular basis, I think it would be a good place to post some of my work over the next few semesters. In this course I’ve especially enjoyed learning more about photoshop and I think a blog would be a good place to post that work, as a sort of online portfolio. If i were to move my blog i think i would also like to add some “About” and “Contact Me” pages. This would be helpful if I were to share the blog to employers or internships. Which if that was the case, I would also want to redesign it a bit. I would make the domain more clean and minimalistic.
