A few months ago I bought an i-Pod touch and experienced listening to a pod cast for the first time.
The last few months I’ve been working on organizing my massive mp3 and music video library using i-Tunes, and although I’m not quite done I can see the end in sight.
I have been an avid music collector for years and it wasn’t until I was given an assignment on podcasting that I realized I should begin looking into downloading and subscribing to podcasts. Continue reading
I finished sorting most of my photos over the last week and I’ve been itching to share a few of my favorites, but I still needed to “fix” a few by cropping them. I was using Paint to crop my pictures because my Photoshop trial expired…that was until I visited Adobe’s site and found out they offer a few photo editing tools FREE online!
I haven’t done much photo editing since my Photoshop trial expired a few months ago and being a college student I didn’t really want to fork over the couple of hundred dollars it would cost me for the Adobe package I really want.
So while looking for alternatives I decided to check and see if a new Adobe trial was available. While looking on the Photoshop home page I noticed a section on the site that offers “online tools”.
When I found out I was going to have to create an additional account on yet another social networking site…I just knew that I would hate the site. Luckily, I can admit when I am wrong in my assumptions.
A few months ago for my PRCA 3030, Social Media, and PRCA 3330, PR Writing, classes I was asked by my professor to join yet another social networking site. Having only three months experience with social networking sites I was not looking forward to going thru the new account setup process or looking forward to remembering yet another user name and password combination.
But…joining PR Open Mic was “easy-peasy” as my 5-year-old would say. I was pleasantly surprised right off the bat when I set up an account in less than a minute! After viewing the home page I was feeling a bit overwhelmed. Not because the site is overwhelming, but because I really want to learn how to use PR Open Mic to my advantage.
Many students in my PRCA 3330 PR Writing class are learning how to develop and craft their writing skills and learning ways of branding themselves and their work so that they present the image the want the public to see first.
A great way to show off your writing style and complement your posts is to add photos to your posts. WordPress now has the option of adding a photo as a “Featured Image” and that is the first large photo that readers will see displayed above your latest post in the “featured image” category.
It took me a while to learn to feature an image, only because I didn’t know where to look while adding the picture to my posts. If you don’t remember to set the image as the featured image when you add it to the post don’t worry you can always set it after you finish editing the post.
