Hello there. Its FINALLY spring break and we get a week away from school for a week!! Right now I will be at a resort next to Lake of the Ozarks but I just wanted to keep you all updated on how my experience with this blog is going. I have added some new blogs that I follow to my list and you can view those by just clicking on them. Most are other students taking the same class. I also added a Google search bar at the bottom of my blog so feel free to try that out and let me know if its of use and helpful. Hopefully I will be getting some photos posted soon so you will have something else to look at besides just my words. Well hope all is having a great spring break! I will post again soon.

Getting a feel for it

I've never used a blog before. Never really felt the need for one. Everyone uses Facebook, Myspace and Twitter. They are easily accessible and available to anyone with an email address and also are well known compared to blog sites. I have started this blog in correspondence to my Website design class at Pittsburg State University. We are learning about editing blogs and all the things we can do with them. Blogs are similar to a website. It has HTML code and can link to other sites or pages in your own blog. A good alternative to paying a lot of money for a good website I think would be to have a well formatted blog that gives the reader information. Its free for a certain amount of space you use then there is a small fee for extra space. For design and ease of use with this blog I would say it's very easy to learn and to use. It doesn't take a lot of time to get your thoughts out onto the web. That is it for this post, I'll continue telling you about my experiences with this blog throughout the semester.
