Final Website

http://homepages.utoledo.edu/aprzesl/


When I first created my website, my idea was to make a site that would function as an online resume. I wanted something that would have all the information that a resume would hold, but had more of an interactive feel. I accomplished this by putting my actual resume up (on the main page) but also by adding videos, pictures, and a slideshow.

My favorite part of my website is the mapping project assignment (under "Travels"). I love how it turned out because it is very similar to my original vision (which is sometimes hard to accomplish!) but also because it adds to the overall idea that this is a site to showcase the things I have accomplished in school and represent what I could bring to the table artistically or just through my study abroad experience.

While I was making this, I looked up other author websites to get an idea of how they were laid out, because I am an English major and wanted that to be a prominent feature of my website, too. I was surprised at how basic many of their websites were, and how much more I liked mine! I hope that isn't conceited to say, and I don't say that to brag on myself. The reason I bring it up, is just to say that through this class I feel like I have learned a lot about how to create different things with HTML, CSS, JS, and even Photoshop. I have gained the basic skills I needed to create a website that looks the way I want it to. I am able to accomplish what I designed in my head with the things I have learned. My website really represents me and all of my interests, which I love. I am very proud of how it turned out!
