Workshop Reflection

In this workshop we learnt the difference between pages and posts in WordPress and when it is necessary to use each which will be useful when building my blog. I learnt that pages are mainly used for more permanent fixed posts whereas posts are more for regular text and media posts, as they can be easily edited and moved around. I have decided that in the near future I am going to create an ‘about’ page on my blog, so that visitors can quickly and easily find out more about what they can expect to find on my WordPress page. During this workshop we also completed an anonymous survey about what we wished to accomplish in both the near and distant future, it was interesting to see the different results and which areas of media were popular with my peers’ long term career targets.
