weekly summary two
I found the second week of ds106 to be much simpler. It didn’t take hours to just set up parts of my site and I could focus solely on the content itself. I based all of my content this week on answering the question of what type of artist I am. I started the week only considering myself semi-artistic and focused that first post on my interest in interior design. But progressively throughout the week, I realized that I am artistic in more than one way. I started off with creating my dream room which directly relates to interior design. Then, I surprised myself by writing poetry which is considered an art, and I edited photos both from the assignment bank and through the daily creates.
I found that I enjoy the daily creates because you are able to express creativity in as few as five minutes. Twitter is easy to use and I posted my creations quickly and was able to view other people’s posts. I also found it easy to navigate the assignment bank and there were countless activities to pick from so I was able to find some I was really interested in.
Throughout the course of week two, I was finally comfortable enough with WordPress to customize my site in a way I feel like expresses me very well. In addition, I was able to sort and organize all of my posts in a way I believe is easy to navigate. My website looks much cleaner and even pretty. Overall, I found this week enjoyable when creating my own posts and looking and responding to others.

In this I see contradiction or even irony. The soft and organic lines and curves that one usually associates with flowers is challenged in this design. It’s almost as if the flower had been manufactured. Very creative – thanks for sharing!
