Well here we are again, Network Media, a class of misfits and media nerds from far and wide. Not far enough however to know how to make HTMLs and things of that nature. Powered by my ricotta and pumpkin ravioli I found I could achieve the list of tasks for todays class with little effort, and enough energy still remaining for the regular partying that will undoubtedly occur on a friday night.
Before we had even begun our learning, Berk announced to the class that we would be deferring and travelling to Turkey for over a month?! I know right, so saddening but Berks backyard had to go global at some point so we wish him best of luck with tackling the variety of weeds and pest in Turkey. We all hope to see some fresh Kebabs being planted.
So Elliot gave us a basic overview AGAIN on the assignments for the semester for all the sloths that missed the last class and we then proceeded with navigating around blog problems we had all encountered and some basic coding exercises. It is essential that we get these skills down failing the HTML tests will result in a a failure of the subject…so awks, not for me but yea, pretty hefty stuff.
Speaking of AWKS! HOW ARE YOU SOPHIE!? Sophie got us off with to a great start with her questions such as “Wait what?” and “How do I use this tablet?” Despite her lacking skills in some aspects of technology Sophie was able to quickly catch on and was blogging away by the end of the lesson. Where we have a good understanding of technology, she can actually write good, ugh, I mean WELL, WELL, so the joke is on us.

We finished off we how to add ourselves to the blogroll and took a look at some other blogs such as Elliot’s found in the link below. I found it interesting how even after just a few weeks, across the media course it is already somewhat competitive in regards to blog presentation and content. BLOG ON!
