When I first tried to create my blog on Blogger.com, I got a message about Java Script and cookies. I followed the instructions and found out the settings needed for Blogger.com to work were already set at the correct settings. So I was left to figure out why I was receiving the message about Java Script and cookies. Wondering if the fact that I was accessing Blogger while I was in Blackboard, I decided to access it outside of Blackboard. That worked. I did create a blog on Blogger.com for one of my other classes last fall. Therefore I do have some experience with a blog. Tonight was the first time I created an avatar. I did not know it could be so much fun! However I did discover that if I did not continually save my changes to my avatar, I would lose everything I had changed up to that point. I found that out the hard way when I wanted to change clothes and lost the face and hairstyle I had picked out. While the hairstyle was easy to pick again, the face was harder because I could not remember which one I had decided I liked best. Speaking of hairstyles, I played around with trying different hairstyles including the bright colored ones. I knew I was not going to choose a bright colored hairstyle but I was curious to see how they looked. For the clothes for my avatar I was looking for something I thought was stylish. I thought the dog added a nice touch to the background scene in front of the library.
