Jazzing Up My Blog

What I Did

The cold weather makes it even more acceptable to dance in public. When waiting for the bus stop and I’m trying to keep my toes warm I sometimes prance in place. Now I have the excuse to say “What? I’m trying to stay warm!” when in reality I just have a song stuck in my head and I can’t sit still. With the dance spirit in mind, I added a gallery page under my dancer bio page. This gallery includes photos of me from my high school dance team, dance studio, and most recently, the Dance Company of Virginia Tech (DCVT). I also included links to the show previews from my past dance performances. I deleted the gallery I created in the side bar because it wasn’t working.

Why I Did It

I’ve been meaning to jazz up my WordPress site for a while but didn’t know where to begin. Creating the gallery with pictures and videos adds a little more visual interest. I still want to focus on tying my online identity to my dance but I feel less restricted now to only including those things and what I work on in this class. I think I will add a passions page or connect to other writings I’ve done for added interest.


“We should consider every day lost on which we have not danced at least once.”

-Friedrich Nietzsche
