Grab a free blog from any platform you like. If you already have a blog you can use that one, or make a new one, whatever you prefer.
You only need the free version of any of these. If you try to upload a video they might ask you to pay. Whatever platform you use, don’t upload videos there. Instead, upload your videos to YouTube or Vimeo and then “embed” them on your blog page (paste the video URL on a new line).
Here are a few suggestions:
You can still use these if you really want to. But if you don’t have a big preference, the ones above are better choices.
- Medium – a nice platform, especially for writers. For some reason, they seem to block a lot of Art 110 content.
- Tumblr – cool, but harder to use for this class. Doesn’t allow comments and requires login to view.
- WordPress.org – excellent choice if you’re a bit more technical. If not, WP.com above is easier
- Squarespace – strong portfolio platform, but unlike all the others listed, they don’t have a Free option
Leave your Name and the URL of your blog as a comment on this page and I’ll add you to this roster. Then, to “turn in” each week’s activities you just make 2 new posts to your blog. Done!
We live in a spam-filled world. The filters might send your comment to spam even though you are a nice person! I’ll rescue any comments that wind up there.
