Process Post #4: Website Map and Future Goals
I’m a huge nerd for organization.
One of my favourite activities is to reorganize my closet, or my bookshelf, or tidy up my space in general. I wouldn’t say it’s a problematic habit, just more something that eases my mind.
I think this is reflected in this website. I wanted to keep my blog “Let’s Talk What I Watch” and my academic assignments and writing pieces for PUB101 completely separate and easy to find.
As seen in this hand-drawn map above, I have briefly walked through how I want the 2 kinds of paths to be in terms of getting around my site when a visitor first comes through the door at the Home page.
The 2 Paths
Ideally by next week I want to figure out how to connect all of my pages a little more through means other than the main menu.
So, the first path is that of coming through the home page, reading the “a little bit about this site” section, and then clicking through embedded links within that write-up or a “suggested recent posts” section at the bottom of the Home page.
The second path is accessing the different pages through the main menu. Here I have laid out my menu title ‘Blog’ as two sections
- Academic Pieces for PUB101
- Blog (leading to the Let’s Talk What I Watch posts)
I have further divided my academic posts into different categories:
- Mini Assignemnts
- Peer Reviews
- Process Blog
Plans for the Future
Site organization and move-ability was a key part of my website development, but I still am working on getting to know WordPress a littel bit better so that I can connect my pages together and promote my work on the Home page to draw visitors in!
