Week 16A: Review

For my business I have the most fun with my Instagram account. It allows me to showcase my photos and get feedback from both other photographers and the general public. I like how through hashtags I can freely share them with numerous people. Then I can log which photos do the best and see how my style develops over time. Furthermore, a lot of models and businesses use Instagram so it is a prime social media for networking and finding new clients. I hadn’t really used Facebook for my businesses before, but I enjoyed playing around with it this semester. It has a lot more analytics and it has more options for customization. However, for the daily use I will continue to stick to Instagram. I can still use Facebook, but on a less frequent time schedule so that I still remain relevant to the people who follow my page.

Week 1A: My Template

For my template I went with a sleek base and green banner because of my passion for minimalist aesthetics. I wanted to provide my readers with some professionalism as well as a visually appealing blog which would make the readers more engaged. This template is visually appealing and doesn't have too many components that would distract the reader from my posts. Some of the other templates I saw had banners, which are nice, however, I believe that it would be a distraction. I enjoy clean backgrounds so that the posts stand out. The strip of green on the top of the page adds some variation, but keeps the blog clean.

For this class, this template fit my needs and is easy access for my peers. The text is large enough so that my posts are readable and the links are clear and easily accessible.

Overall, I thought this was the sleekest template compared to the other options.

Week 3B: Local Business Research and Comments

Listed are 5 business's social media that I researched:


Business 1
“Textile Study Guild of San Diego” (https://www.tsgsd.org) Active social media: Facebook, Google+, Pinterest, YouTube, Instagram, Twitter Last Posts: Facebook: February 9, 2018 Google+: November 1, 2017 Pinterest: January 10, 2018 YouTube: January 13, 2018 Twitter: February 9, 2018 Instagram: February 11, 2018 They seem most active on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter for posting new workshops or meet ups. These platforms are the best for spreading this sort of information, but they are inactive on their other social media. Maybe they should remove those links and focus on these select platforms so that they don’t spread themselves out too thin. Business 2

Week 4A: Aesthetics, Design, and Branding

The first website I clicked on was the one by Jami Lin. My first impression was that it looked messy and chaotic. The colors are kind of unappealing and there are too many button to click on. In my opinion, if they could clean up the tabs and choose a more aesthetically pleasing background then it would make the website instantly better. There doesn’t seem to be any branding either so I would say that they should include some sort of logo as the focal point of the page. Overall, the website looks very outdated as if it were coded by hand when nowadays there are easy website builders that look a lot better.

The next website I looked at was by Penny Juice America. This one was a little better than the first website, but it could still use a little update. First I would recommend that they use less bright colors and try to stick to a theme so that the page looks more clean and put together. The layout looks okay, but if I am being critical I would say to remove the banner at the bottom of…
