    Process Post #11: The End

    This course has come to an end and this will be the last blog post I will create for this course. It is a bittersweet feeling, I am glad that I am finished not only this course, but my last semester as an undergrad but it now all comes to an end. When I first started this course, I had no idea what to expect. At first I was unsure about having to create a blog and keep it maintained every week but I enjoyed it a lot more than I thought. I am someone who does not like to write and has a hard time coming up with what…

    Essay #2: My blog

    For this class I created this blog, “Tobi’s Routine”, when we were first asked to think of a topic to create a blog, I had to brainstorm what I wanted to write about. I wrote down things I enjoyed I my life, and things I liked to talk about. For me, it was between three things, cooking, skincare and trying new active things like aerial silks or boxing. I also looked at the different things I followed on social media, as well as the blogs that I liked. One of the one’s that I always look to and have mentioned many times before in this course is Chriselle Lim’s blog,…

    Process Post #10: Reflection on Public Shaming

    I’m writing this process post as a reflection on the video we watched in class today. It was Jon Ronson’s “When Shaming Goes Too Far” TedTalk from 2015. After watching the video, it was a scary reality of what the internet and people can do and is capable of. In the video Jon Ronson explains how a woman tweeted a racist comment before flying on a plane, just for it to be retweeted and then went viral. And yes, what she said was not okay, or if it were suppose to be sarcastic joke, it was a bad joke with no context. But the scariest part of this is the…

    Process Post #9: Twitter Analytics

    Process Post Prompt: Analytics (Google, Facebook, Twitter etc.) is a very valuable tool for building your audience. For content creators, knowing how your reader behaves on your website can help enormously with developing the best content, posting at the right time, and developing the appropriate engagement strategies. On the flip side, for the reader or user, it can be tiresome and even worrisome knowing you are providing data trails every where you go online. As I was creating my infographic this week, I discovered that Twitter allows you to view the analytics for your Twitter account. I thought this was really interesting that they provide this information to every twitter user publicly and for…

    Peer Review #3: Lily in Stripes

    For my third peer review, I will be reviewing Lily in Stripes by Lily Yu. This is a personal/travel blog is about Lily who is from Hong Kong and doing an exchange here in Vancouver. DesignWhen I first approached Lily’s blog, it was simple, elegant and easy to navigate. I liked the banner that had the blog’s title, sub-title and then the image matched the name of their blog which I thought was really clever. Then under the banner there are a few featured blog posts which I believe are the most recent, which made it easy for me to get a glance of the type of blog posts they…

    Process Post #8: Final Stretch

    It’s that time of year again. Final stretch until the end of the semester and if all goes well, hopefully this would be my last one! This semester I decided to finish my classes as well as continue working full time. At first everyone thought I was crazy, taking a full course load as well as working full time but I knew I wanted to finish ASAP. With two publishing courses and one online Contemporary Arts course, this semester has felt manageable until this week. This has been a crazy week for me at work and I started to fall behind. Knowing that I had a couple of late assignments…

    Process Post #7: #FacebookDown

    Ahhhhh it happened! Social media has crashed on us! Well only maybe for a few hours but it was really interesting to see everyone’s reactions and comments during #FacebookDown and #InstagramDown. Although having these applications down surprisingly didn’t affect me too much, for others it was like the apocalypse (this will be a great topic to discuss in lecture on Tuesday). On Wednesday, March 13th Facebook and all of the applications it owns Messenger, Instagram, Whatsapp were all experiencing an outage. I first discovered something was wrong when I was trying to send my friend a photo via Messenger. It kept telling me there was an error even though my…
