Create Refection

For the few weeks of  technology class we’ve been working on the create part of the design cycle. We tried our best to create a blog as we designed in the design part of the cycle. We changed the theme, we changed our header image, we completed our widgets, we even wrote a PAGE of our self. (Mine is at the very top, below the header image, it’s called “About the author”.  We also customized our menu there’s a video.


I really like this theme because I love animals and move stuff. Notice when you are scrolling up or down, the back ground of my theme IS MOVING randomly back and force or up and down. This theme is called :” Something fishy”( just in case you want one too.)

I’m proud of my blog because it has a special ability. When ever I go to my blog, it don’t show me the first post but instead it shows me the blog idea brainstorm post and I’ve absolutely no idea why. BUT, with my theme’s spacial ability the problem CAN BE SOLVED.  So you’ll notice that there’s a little worm on a fishing hook on the left side of my blog. If your courser on it (don’t click) it says : “get me outta here!” which means “Go to the top!” Really cool isn’t it.

Well you don’t understand  that it’s OK, because I made a video to help to explain.

I really want to talk about the header image  because we actually leant about how to create your own header image. (PS: It’s really cool). We used a program called Photo Shop. I used to think that’s the kind of program that only guinness computer hacker  would’ve use to make a fake photo, in China we call it PS which stands for photo shop. The reason why we  don’t use the header that is already in the  Word Press is it’s too boring and we want it to represent our self so we decided to create our own header image. Because the picture that we want for the internet is too big and too tall so the first thing we do is make layer in the photo shop and copy the image that you selected. Then make another one but the this time you have to decide the size that can fit your blog.  After you choose the part you want, you can write your name on it and change the front. To make a shadow, you just need to make your name again in black and move it around.

    Great job ShaoLun! I love that you created a video to explain the special aspect of your blog! I am also frustrated that the blog always pops down to the blog brainstorm. Once you have enough posts that the Investigate Reflection goes on to the second page, that won’t happen any more, but since you have the little worm on your interactive theme it really does solve the problem 🙂
