In the lecture i learned what made a well designed and poorly designed blog. Colour is important and its best to stick to a colour scheme that is not too bright, making sure the text is able to be read and stands out enough from the colour that it is placed on, i was an example of a website that did not do this correctly and it was so difficult to read most of it and the colours strained my eyes and was overwhelming. I learned that my choice of colours can be guided by the theme i choose for my blog and audience. Other do’s and dont’s were address and i kept note of them in hopes that i create a decently designed blog.
The practical session was for us to set up our blogs and customize them, i had already done it by the time the class started so i just fiddled around with a bit more and experimented with WordPress further.
