FIRST: come to the rug today. DO NOT READ THE REST OF THIS UNTIL YOU RETURN FROM THE RUG!
Part of your grade for this class will come from your ability to generate page views for your site. You need people to visit your page and read your stuff regularly. If you want people to actually visit your website and read your work, you have to make it easy for them. Today I am going to have you research some important information about web design and layout. I am having you do this because a poorly designed website will not get visited by people.
ANSWER THIS QUESTION BELOW IN THE COMMENTS BOX: What did you learn about the design and layout of good web sites? What did you learn about the design and layout of bad websites?
In other words, you need to make your work easy to read and quick to access. Otherwise people will not visit your site. There is a fine line between making your webpage unique, and making it impossible to navigate or read easily.
After you have answered my question in the comments box below, post something on your blog today related to your new web theme (20 points). Respond to things people wrote as comments on your blog yesterday. In other words, maintain your website today. Things are going to get really busy this week and next.
