Week1 My template

I chose this theme because I like cosmetics. I often watch videos on how younger women apply certain cosmetics so I can learn how to use them properly and look my best. Because they can be very expensive, I have to be careful not to go overboard on how much I spend. I thought it would be fun to start reviewing what I use so that maybe I can get some followers, sponsors and maybe some free products!

This theme explains a lot about me just by looking at it. The soft colors of the theme are nice, the brush, glittery nail polish and eye shadow stand out. I like the black background and uniformity because it looks like a web site not just a blog.

I've never written a blog, never even read a blog so I'm not really sure what I'm in for. All I know is that it sounds like fun and I hope it turns out great. I look forward to expanding my knowledge on this so I can use this technology over and over.


  1. Hello! … Good choice with your template selection. I feel like the colors and theme for your blog is perfect for beauty and cosmetics. Like you, I also like the softens of the pink and the boldness of the black which makes your site feels warm and sophisticated at the same time. I’m also new to writing blog post and I am curious to see what's in store. Can't wait to read and learn new beauty tips from your blog posting!

  2. Hi, Taylor! I really like the template that you choose and your reasoning behind it is really interesting. I personally have never been very good with makeup and only really know how to do the basics but I love to see when people can really express themselves through it. Good luck this semester!

  3. Hi, Taylor! I think that template you chose for your topic fits perfectly. I agree that this doesn't necessarily look like a blog when you click on it, it does have the feel of a website to it. I find myself sometimes looking up makeup tutorials so I hope this blog is somewhere where you can start posting your own! Good luck!

  4. I think that this is a great layout. You can learn a lot about a person by the way their profile looks, and in this case, I definitely got the hint that you're into cosmetics. Although your post wasn't visible until I clicked on it, I was able to navigate your blog easily, which is all you can ask for when it comes to UI. Good job.

Week 2 Overview of Social Media

1. In my opinion I think Snapchat and Twitter are geared toward personal use. Snapchat has a variety of features where the user uploads their face and applies things like silly ears, mouths and voices with short videos and disappears quickly. Also, you can create stories with short 6 second snippet videos combined together but again are short lived as they go away in a day. Twitter blasts out a message sent by an individual. These would not be very effective for business advertising.

2. Facebook, Instagram and Youtube are effective means of advertising for businesses.
Facebook can get likes and followers so each ad that gets created can show up in a customer news feed repeatedly. Facebook can also have an attached website and you can place an order or contact the business in its built in messenger app to ask questions and get answers fairly quick.
Instagram is simple and more straight forward. You can share a picture with comments attached and get followers likes and comments. You ca…

Week 16 Planning Your Future Strategy

Learning the various social media platforms has been a real eye opener. I thought Facebook, Instagram, You Tube and Twitter were all good for our business and creating newsletters are an invaluable tool to create and increase sales, but learning to blog was also a very useful tool I am planning to expand on. In researching all of our competitors, I got to see what they are or aren't doing. There were a few companies that are very active in posting regularly and I learned from them and will grow from that. I liked some of their visuals on their websites and I will incorporate similar offerings. Offering seasonal ads as well as sales is a good idea especially in the gift giving season going on now.

Farming is such a day to day business and things change rapidly so I'm going to start blogging more in addition to Facebook and Instagram about what we do to try and convey honesty, hard work, quality and value in what we produce. 

I will plan on  spending  3-4 hours a day for 2 days a …
