Learning about my blog

I am learning new things about my blog in Technology class. I just started posting things on my blog because I started this school on the 8th of April.

I Learned six things, and The first thing I learning is how to change the background of my blog.

I chose a picture of  the African Jungle!

The second thing I learned is how to post things on my blog. The first thing I posted was the research about folk music from your country and to write about one folk song from your country. I accidentally made a mistake on some vocabularies but it was a good lesson to look over what you wrote before you click publish.

The third thing I learned is how to change the text color of the header.I chose to use Orange for the header text, because I thought it would be kind of boring if it didn’t have any color.

The fourth thing is kind of simular to the third one, because what I learned is how to change the color of the background in my blog. I pretty much don’t need this because I chose a picture of a African Jungle(As I said before) already… .

The last two things I learned about my blog is

1. How to choose a image for the header box.I was just going to use black, but it will be also to boring so I chose a picture of “The historical route 66” from the wild west.

The final thing I learned  is how to decide and choose a tagline for the header. This is deep and for me, it is a little difficult to find the right word. I thought about my future and how I keep learning things everyday.

 

 

 

 

 

About American folk music, and the song “Kum ba ya”

A traditional folk music is well known in your country and it’s passed on through generations. A folk music also tells a story.

I chose the song “Kumbaya”

Kumbaya is a spiritual song from the 1930s. Kumbaya means “come by here” “kum ba ya” in Gullah language. Gullah is an African American population in the U.S. south Carolina, Georgia and Florida. Kumbaya became a very popular song for camp fires in the 1960s.

My Mom used to sing it in summer camp when she was younger.
