Week 4 Part 2


So a very guilty pleasure of mine as of late is Wish.com.  It is a website that sells from overseas at very low prices.  Besides from the obvious of likening it because of the low prices, its also because of the simplicity of the website.  It is mostly pictures that I can look though quickly and easily with barely any lag.  Makes it almost effortless, easy to search engine, and they will give you percentage off for giving reviews good or bad.  The only real complaint I have is I wish you could pay for a better, quicker, one price delivery service.  Sometimes it takes a month until you receive the products.

Another website that I just realize that I use everyday is Yahoo.com.  I use it to get my daily news, that is usually updates by the hour.  I like its titles that keep me interested enough to want to see the rest of the article.  The pictures also help to clarify the titles.  One of my big issues is how I will chose a article that I would like more information on, I will click on it, it will open another tab that gives me a summery of the story which then give me another option to continue.  I choose this article, just show me the whole thing.  It is like paying for a movie, sitting down and only getting a preview of the movie you choose, than being told to go to the theater next door to see that movie.

I commented on Jose Montiel and Maxim Caradonnas’ blog.

Week1A: My Template

I chose this template for several reasons, but my top three reasons where because to me it was colorful, unique, and simple.  The first thing I noticed was the color, to me it was nice, calm colors that I thought best represented me with out really saying anything about me.  The colors are not used all that often which get is into my next reason that I chose this template which was it's uniqueness.  The color combination you do not see often now a days which to me makes it more desirable.

The last reason was simplicity, its looks very easy to navigate without looking old fashion.  I think by having everything on the screen and not having to click something else to get there makes my blogging site easy and more comfortable to navigate though.  A lot of site have put a lot of things together to make an amazing, one of a kind site, but they make it at the expense of the viewer who might have a hard time getting to where he/she wants to get to. 

I am excited to see what my first post…

Week 2A: Social Media

I think all social media is geared to personal use, my answer is more towards an “and” than an “or”, that social media is used for personal use and business use.I can only think of one social media site that is a lot more business than it is personal which would be LinkedIn.I believe this because it would seem that most social media were made at first to be primarily for personal use, but others have capitalized on its popularity and have been able to make great business investments in social media.A great example would be how a small coffee show may promote their twitter account to customers, to watch for discounts and such, by having them as followers there would spread the word and this small coffee shop could see a 20% increase in customers just by having a twitter account and posting promotions, drinks and employees. As for which specific site works better for business, it really depends on several factors, like who are your customers? Who do you want your future customers to be…

Week 4 Post 1

So I started by opening up 4 random websites and looked at each one, from there I determent which on I thought were terrible and which two I thought were done well.When examining them I looked for several things, how does the website overall look? Is it clear what there business is for and or what they are advertising? Is the site organized? Is there an easy way to get contact information?After taking about ten to fifteen minutes on each on website, looking around, making sure I was sure about my decision, this is what I came with.
Worst Out of the four that I opened I have to say that Gates N Fences had, in my opinion the worst of the websites and here is why.Unorganized, I didn’t know where to look, there were articles in different fonts and sizes, the title screen was small and the pictures that were there were everywhere.The second thing that just did not make sense to me was there bar tab on the left side, with the different color and different designs I just did know what was g…
