FDOM Blog Project Review

So this year in my Fundamentals of Digital and Online Media class i was instructed to create and maintain a blog. This was my first time keeping a blog. Overall i would rate the whole experience a B+. Some pros of the blog were that I got to take away and keeps so great “Do It Yourself” or DIY projects that are really useful or cool. I also like the fact that I could share my takes on ways to decorate apartments on a budget aside from the DIY projects, this blog also helped me put to use so of my new html skills I learned in class which i know i will need in the future. Some cons were that I found myself running out of ideas to come up. I also did not like how we had to create an app that really did not go well with my blog that i was working hard on. Overall I think that this was a positive experience. I plan on keeping and improving this blog. Now that this class is ending I now have the ability to tailor this blog to my own liking. I hope you all continue to visit my page and share feedback on past and future projects!

NAILED IT

Nailed it is an app idea that I created ! This app would be helpful in choosing the best nail polish and design! With this app girls would be able to choose from a wide range of colors, designs, and shapes they wanted to try out.
How to use nailed it:
1st step – upload a picture of your nails.
2nd step – will be to choose the color, design, and or shape you would like your nail to be.
3rd Step – after finding the perfect nails you can choose to save final picture of your nails.
4th step – go to the product page to find the nail polish and a nail salon near you !
