The past week was the first time I have ever created a domain for myself, the first time I have ever worked with wordpress, and the first time I have written a blog. It has been a experience and even though this site was created for a class, I am looking forward to using this as a platform to talk about my writing.
I think that, as a part of a class on digital citizenship, this assignment was created to allow us to become a part of the vast “interwebs” (as my high school students would put it) and therefore experience digital citizenship firsthand.
The most challenging part of the assignment to create a blog has been learning all the technical aspects of creating the blog. I just learned how to change the header image. I still need to learn what a widget is. It’s probably not a fuzzy little alien, even though that’s what the name sounds like.
I also find it intimidating knowing that what I post is public and accessible. It puts a great responsibility on my shoulders. However, I shall post boldly and responsibly.
