I am reporting on setting up the accounts we’ll need for class.
WordPress blog site – easy to set up; hard for me to customize it the way I wanted it to look. I tend to spend way too much time trying to make things look right and this was no exception. I saw these cool templates, but I couldn’t make my blog look anything like it. And my picture is all out of proportion so you see the sky instead of the people. I will try to keep working on it, but I just spent hours making a prezi for school so I am just getting annoyed….
Flickr and Tumblr – both these accounts I titled larissaruns. (There are more Larissa Lee’s in the world than I thought…) I uploaded some pictures. Could be useful for storing pictures, but I normally use instagram to share pix.
Twitter – I had an account. Also called it larissaruns. A few problems I have with twitter — there are people/things I’d like to keep up with, but I don’t really have time to read all the tweets that I get. Also (this is the reason I don’t have facebook anymore), I would probably need to have different accounts for all my personae. As a high school teacher, I would like to use a professional account to tweet with my classes, but then there are other things I am interested in that would need to be on different accounts… it becomes cumbersome, IMO.
Soundcloud – so far I have listened to a bunch of music. I access this through google plus.
Youtube – I will also access this through google plus — I have wasted a lot of time watching youtube videos, but there is a lot I can use for school.
