Should I Monetize My Site? Possibility of Leaving an Online Footprint When Doing So?

Should I Monetize My Site? Possibility of Leaving an Online Footprint When Doing So?

In our PUB 101 class there recently has been a discussion about monetizing our blogs for profit and I was like why exactly would we want to monetize our blogs. The answer is rather simple, as a university student we need money because we are prone to student loan debt and our way of living in Vancouver is rather expensive. So why not earn a little spending money from our blogs? Upon hearing that response from our guest speaker, my…

Remix Something? Wait what?

Remix Something? Wait what?

This week’s processing post is actually kinda awkward because it requests all of us to “remix something.” Ok so first of all…. WHAT DO YOU MEAN REMIX SOMETHING? Given my photography and having some knowledge of Adobe Photoshop, I decided to “remix” something of my own. In the world of photography, we capture images using our own camera gear and then we put it into something like Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop to manipulate the image and make changes to the…

KOTO Izakaya – The Small Gem Hidden on Alexandra Rd. Richmond

Last night through a recommendation of a couple of photography friends of mine I decided to go to KOTO Izakaya which is a Japanese style restaurant located on Alexandra Rd. in Richmond BC. Despite its big signs being clearly visible from the McDonald’s across the street I’ve never went inside and I usually go to G-Men Ramen nearby but since I ran out of ideas on what to eat since I didn’t have cash on me to eat at the…

Nintendo Switch – The Ace in the Hole! Revolutionary? – My Reaction!

I woke up today not expecting much and then when I took out my phone and browsed Facebook, I noticed that a friend of mine shared a video on Facebook via IGN. I was like…. wait what about NINTENDO! Then I decided to watch the video just to see what the big deal was and then it hit me. HOLY CRAP! IT’S THE NINTENDO NX!

Making Changes Through Peer Review Criticisms

Making Changes Through Peer Review Criticisms

Last week for my Publishing 101 class we were given the task to peer review a fellow student’s in terms of the design elements and decisions that we had implemented onto our blog site. Despite the heavy criticisms that were cited by my reviewer about my design decisions about how busy and not appealing it is about the gray carbon fiber style background. I decided to leave those the way they are because I feel that personally if I change…

The Importance of the Drastic Shift from Print to Digital Literacy

With the introduction of the dot-com era, we are now all connected online through the Web and with the existence of the internet, there are new literacies that comes with it. As a result, there is a broad shift in society from print to digital literacy mainly from how we obtain and interact with information. Another major shift would be the interactivity between creators and users of content when compared to print.

Peer Review For Ms. Julianna Wilson

Peer Review For Ms. Julianna Wilson

For this post, I had the opportunity to review a fellow peer’s work which is that of Ms. Julianna Wilson (http://juliannawilson3.com) From what I can tell about the blog, it seems to be based heavily on TV shows and film reviews. Yay! A fellow TV and film buff in class! Anywho it’s time to not go off tangent and fall off the train and get right on with the review.

The Question of Selecting Your Audience For Your Blog – My Two-Cents

For any blog to be successful, we must first decide on the type of audience we want to capture. Depending on the type of audience, we must make a decision on what exactly we want to post such as for my blog here I intend to target those who are interested in the lifestyle of an Asian-Canadian and how I live my day. 

Connecting Life Experience Through Commercials: SONY PLAYSTATION TV

Connecting Life Experience Through Commercials: SONY PLAYSTATION TV

Recently, I had been going through commercials that I really like and there is just this one advert from Japan that I cannot get out of my head. I am talking about the CM (commercial) from SONY where they introduced the Playstation TV which is a micro-console version of the Playstation VITA handheld game system. Sure, it’s just a simple removal of the screen and buttons which is substituted with your large screen and Playstation 3 or 4 controller but…
