We’ve just made personal websites in Digital Media Convergence class. I was really excited about this project because it’s something I’ve always wanted to do. I centered my website around my writing. I’ve written a couple of novels, and I wanted to showcase one of them, Jane’s Air, for prospective agents.
I chose a really simple layout for my website because I didn’t want it to be overwhelming. The pink background, teal bar, and header are on every page to create continuity. Everything is easy to read, and the images I used are high quality.
I really like my website. I’ve never done anything like this before, so it was interesting to learn how a design on paper is transferred online. I have a new found respect for web designers! Hopefully I can buy my domain name and keep my website permanently! In the future, I can see myself expanding the website and having my personal blog feed on the site so everything is in one place.
