Section 1 – Peer Review

Check out my webpage!

I am having so much fun working on my webpage!

Some of my favorite aspects of what I have so far:

  1. The images…I’ll admit it, I’m a “mystery meat” addict!  I had a lot of fun playing around with the images on Photoshop in an attempts to make my page more unique.  I found the photos on a free images page and transformed them into the neon-looking things that you see.  I also added the wording because I wanted my readers to be able to understand the concept I was trying to get across.
  2. The colors…generally speaking I stick to earthy tones and play it safe with color.  I really enjoyed using the bright colors.  I feel like the crazy colors add to the effect without being too over the top.
  3. The concept…The concept that I was going for was that I wanted to highlight the way technology has made my writing evolve.

I need to work on:

  1. My index page OBVIOUSLY!  I’m still not sure how I want my index to page to look.  I want it to be fun but still professional.
  2. Navigation…I’m wondering if my readers will know that they should click on the first image first in order to get the story of the page.  Do I need to put something there that says “start here”?
  3. Photos on the various pages…I used frames so the top images in on every page.  Am I lacking images?  Should I add more?  I was thinking about possibly putting in the images that I used on the rollover images on the actual pages.
  4. My WRITING…I have been so focused on making sure all my links work, playing with images, etc. that I think I really need to work on my actual writing.  Should I include more?
  5. Sound…I’d really like to add sound but have no idea what or how.

Any feedback would be great!

 

So after reading the comments from my group there are a few things I have to work on.

1.  First of all, I need to create an index page.  I just have so many ideas but am a little unsure of how to execute them.  I think that I will need to experiment a little more with Dreamweaver before I make a decision.

2.  I obviously have to fix my typos.  I will alleviate this problem from the rest of my pages by running my writing through a word processor and cutting and pasting.  I am just a spoiled Mac user who is used to everything being spell-checked.

3. I have to fix the table issue on one of my pages.

4.  I need to title my pages.

    Amber, I love the layout of your page! It’s very organized and uniformed. I absolutely love your “mystery meat” and how you photo shopped your images. The neon colors definitely work for this page! Everything is consistent: Theme, background, colors, images.

    I like the quotes that you added to each page. Very creative! All of your links work, so that’s great!! I would change the link to your blog to show up in a separate window. Also I would change the homework page to something like Homework at my desk to my computer.

    As for the writing, I think you have plenty of text, but that’s just my opinion. The last page has a border around the text, which looks nice, but I don’t think you wanted it there.

    You meet all the criteria for each section! Great Job!!!

    Amber! You’re ‘Section One’ Page is really coming along! It is nice that you have a cohesive design that corresponds throughout the links that you provided on the page. The title is creative and fitting! All of your links seem to be active. I like the rollover images that you chose for the pages they link to.Great use of color throughout the pages–this also pulls the design of entire website together, so I’m glad you made that connection.

    Altogether, great work. I look forward to seeing more! 🙂

    Section 1 of your website looks great so far. The rollover images and other effects add flair to the presentation without hurting its summary. There are some minor typos throughout the section that should be corrected along with the last portions of Section 1 needing to have its tables removed to match the other portions. Two other suggestions are to 1) definitely create an index page of some sort as it will really help to enhance the presentation of your site and 2) add titles to each of your webpages since each webpage has the title of “Untitled Document” right now.

    Thanks for the suggestions Mushtak. I forgot to add the titles to the page so I am glad you pointed it out. I’m am also planning on working on my index page soon!
