I’m not gonna lie – these first few days were rough. Trying to get acclimated to using WordPress for the first time and creating a domain with no prior experience was not an easy feat. Even trying to decide on the name of my domain was difficult. Thankfully I didn’t need to look very far for inspiration:)
But I managed to get up and running. This week I went through the checkpoints listed on the week 1 midweek assignment which included working my way through the DS106 bootcamp activities. I already had most of the required accounts already set up – for example, my twitter account is here. However, I had to also familiarize myself with outlets I had never used before such as Slack. To me it’s a little confusing to use at first, especially trying to figure out how to “respond” to a direct question and which “channel” to post to. But apparently Slack has a ton of useful features to help with collaboration and since it will be our primary way of communicating with each other, I’m hopeful that it’ll be way better than using the traditional “discussions” feature on canvas.
Question of the week: What is your favorite type of story? Why?
For me personally, my favorite type of story is a romantic one. I’m a sucker for happy endings and happily ever afters:) This past weekend, I was one who set my alarm so that I could get up early on a Saturday to watch the Royal Wedding. But my preference is probably coming from my own experience – I married the love of my life and we’re going strong on 4 years of marital bliss.
