ILC Tutorial Day

‘Blogging’ is my middle name
All though I usually sleep in on the weekends, I had to go to a tutorial Saturday morning. I still had a wonderful experience learning more about blogging. Being with Don and my cohorts made it more interesting because we made jokes along the way of learning. The tutorial was located at De Anza High School. Since Alexa and I were picked up, by Don, I had to wake up around 6:30 AM. He picked me up around 7:30 AM and we made it to Alexa's house around 7:45 AM and got to the school around 8 AM so Don could set the materials up for the tutorial. But even though one of our cohorts wasn't there, we still had an amazing time learning about blogging with just the four of us ILCers. (But I think it would have been even better if Dani was there.)

The most interesting part was learning how to use a card reader to download the pictures we took onto the computer so that we could put them onto MediaFire while in the process of learning how to put pictures into our blogs. You would be surprised on how much stuff we could use for technology if you don't already know about it. We also learned how to use P
hotoshop to crop pictures and make the pictures look better for our blogs. I also learned how to fix the red eyes on a photo if there are any.

Even though I didn't want to be there and I wanted to stay at home and sleep, I am glad that I went to the tutorial on Saturday because now I have more knowledge on how to blog and what blogging is about and what extras I can do on my blog. I am proud to say that I left the tutorial having a more clear understanding about blogging. I really appreciated that Don took the time to teach us how to blog while having a little fun at the same time. It really helped out to have more knowledge of it.


  1. We all do what we have to do but, like you, I would much rather have stayed in bed. As I tell people, I don;t do early mornings very well any more.

    You were a good group at the tutorial and that made things go easier.

    We used to just turn our ILCers loose but we learned that if we try to teach them through tutorials like this and give them a chance to practice BEFORE they get on the plane, they’re a lot more relaxed once they have to blog every night.

  2. That is a great face of concentration :)
