Rationale

For our assignment we were given a brief which asked us to create a blog, with the topic of our choice in the hope to connect and attract with other social networks with similar interests. We could design our own layout however we wished, though were told we had to update regularly. 

The topic of choice for my blog was very obvious to me as its something that i do on a regular basses and have done so since i was very young. I decided i wouldn’t just base this blog about my cycling life and i would include other races and events from around the world as well. i also didn’t just want to post text, as i felt that it wouldn’t allow the viewers to see and feel apart of the atmosphere. So i decided to use photos and videos as well as text to display the events. 

The concept behind my colour choices for my blog was influenced from my cycling team ‘Seight Custom Clothing’. I wanted to include my team colours as this blog is also about myself and felt that adding this made it different and individual from other cycling blogs (which I’ve searched, there are a lot!) and also i knew that my sponsor would be pleased with me for getting his name and colours out there (bonus points for me ;P). I chose the layout Munich by Prshnth as i liked how simple and easy it is to distinguish between posts by placing each post one after the other which makes the page look less cluttered. 

When creating my blog i didn’t really come across many difficulties other than finding photos or videos from events around the world, as i am unable to be there myself and capture my own collection. To help i often referred to the Cycling Central web site as they are a very well known and trusted site and found it very helpful when collecting my information. http://www.sbs.com.au/cyclingcentral/ 

I also created posters and business cards to help promote my blog and handed them out to friends and family and asked if they could pass some on to people they knew as well. I also posted my poster up on my Facebook page and twitter so therefore my blog could be promoted and seen by wider audience. 

I really enjoyed creating and running a blog of my own as i have seen others do so and have always wanted to myself. 

Along with this blog i also updated a little on my twitter -https://twitter.com/XEmilyJaneHuntX 

and also on my Facebook - http://www.facebook.com/emily.hunt.3110?ref=tn_tnmn
