Easy week. Made the new email domain of firstname.lastname@example.org… amusing address. Haven’t received a single email from it. I also installed the anti-spam program but hadn’t received any spam before that so I’m not sure how necessary it was.
When looking playing around with the themes I first picked out one that did not really have any customization options. The only thing I could change was the title of blog and the colors so I ended up getting rid of it. After watching the online tutorial Thursday night—during really—I ended up searching through the internet for something random and more exciting and ended up choosing a Mario theme. I’m sure I’ll end up changing it again later in the semester (also not many customizing options).
I also played around with the sidebar widgets. It was cool to see what was what.

I did the Daily Creates from Sunday (I hope that was allowed) with the pun and Wednesday’s design an action poster of Julia Childs.

The gif was definitely the biggest challenge of the week just because I have never made one. I ended up just googling how to do it and figured out that I needed to download a video off of youtube (for the easiest way). I picked The Lord of the Rings because I love those stories and movies and Gimli just for some comic relief. After I downloaded the video off of youtube, I cut the video down with the iMovie on my Mac to a one second clip. After that I ended up downloading an app out of the app store called iLivid that makes gifs. Then I embedded it onto my blog. It didn’t work for a while after I was changing the themes, but I reworked it and it was fixed.
