So, for my Semester Project, I’ve decided to undertake the job of reorganizing the blog. I can’t stand clutter and disorganization, and I think this blog is suffering greatly from it. My overall goal is to change the blog so it is not only organized, but more user friendly. I would love to add some sort of background actually having to do with media and what our class is all about. Now, I am not as skilled in HTML as I was in my livejournal/myspace days, but hopefully it is like riding a bike. I also want to center the whole blog and create some interesting way to display the title, Convergent Media, Divergent Voices. I plan to archive all of the blog posts, at this point probably by month and year, but depending on the content of all the posts I may categorize further. Also, I think it would be a good idea to make a separate archive section strictly for blogs talking about semester project proposals, and any blog based projects. I also would like to do something about the right hand column links to organize them further and perhaps add some new ones.
Although the above is subject to change, I hope to begin by archiving the blog posts, as I believe this will take the most time. Then I plan to move on to the links and lastly, the background and layout. I am completely open to ideas from everyone for any suggestions about how to improve our blog, so feel free!
