Project nearing completion

Here is the slideshare presentation for my project.

Last Project Update

I have reached my goal of 100 hits on the HUMV blog/website and I am aiming for 150 by next week. So far there are six posts. My original goal was ten. I am going to put pictures of the group as one of the tabs and update the the weekly goings on of the group two more times before the project is due. I am still searching for a better free theme right now but at least the one I have is functional. More links will be added to the side that are military related. My main goal for the site was for people of the group to have a place to visit that they could view on their own time which would cause less emails to be sent for the listserv.

Project update at 10:55pm

As of this very moment I have set up the HUMV blog/website. I have written three blog posts and am currently working on a fourth (my goal is at least 10). The site has 60 hits so far and my goal is 100 (I may increase this goal later on). I have links on the side to a discussion center on GoPost and the Facebook group. I just got a better picture for the banner that shows 12 members of the group instead of three. I need to continue to write posts and improve the site with little tweaks here and there. Hope the world enjoys!

Project 3.0: Outline for the future

I just started the blog for HUMV which is a student organization at UW (set up account on WordPress check). The main goal for the project is to have a website/blog that people in the group can go to for up to date information. The main reason I chose this project is to keep the literally hundreds of emails each quarter from the listserv out of my UW email account.

I plan on putting everything from the listserv on the blog and updating it at least once per week. The first entry is the minutes from the meeting last week. This helps people who are part of the group who couldn’t make it to the meeting find out the goings on of the group. I want to find a design that is customizable but I figured to just have one up so I can start putting out information.

A successful project would mean that I have done at least ten entries by the end of the quarter. I would also like the traffic to be in the triple digits. These are lofty goals but I think they can be achieved.

The tentative outline is as follows:

Set up website *done*, start blogging *1 down*, put up links on the sidebar *partially done*, get the word out to members of the group about the website, transfer all the activities from the listserv to the blog, find a better theme *hopefully free*, write down the minutes of each meeting and put upcoming events on the blog, and finally have fun with the project by putting up pictures and experimenting with new things.

I don’t have any real timeline for when things get done just what should be done. Happy Friday! If anyone who is female reads this before 7:30 pm today there is a hockey game in Kent (Seattle Thunderbirds) where after the game there is a turkey shoot for all women. If you can score a goal from 56 feet away you win a free turkey!

Project 2.0

I have decided to go with the making of a website for HUMV. Here are the steps or small goals to my project.

1.) Set up a WordPress account with the name HUMV (I think HUMV.wordpress.com is still available)

2.) Pick a user-friendly background and theme (should have a calendar that can be clicked on to find out what is going on that day for the group)

3.) Consult with the President of the group while designing and putting up information on the site

4.) Put all the current information on the website

5.) Tell all the people on the mailing list about the new site (this will hopefully cut down on the e-mails for MyUW accounts)

6.) Write at least a weekly blog on Mondays to let people know the weeks schedule

7.) Update the blog/site/information when it becomes available

8.) Sleep and repeat
