Process Post #4: Who is my Audience?

Now that it’s been a few weeks into our PUB 101 class, we have been told to think about our audience and readers for our own blogs. We been given questions to think about such as: Who reads our blogs? How can we engage with our readers? Why is it that my blog attracts a certain demographic?

Downtown Vancouver.

Since my blog is based in Vancouver, generally I would believe that my audience would be from Vancouver. Perhaps they are wondering what kind of food place they want to explore or if the restaurant is worth trying. More so, maybe they want to know where and what kind of sales that are happening, etc.

Process Post #3: Online Presence

I am late, like super late, but that’s okay (no..not really) because procrastination has always been my friend (°͈▵°͈)

The more we work on our blogs the more I feel in tune to change the layout of my blog. Am I happy with the way things have turned out? Yes, I am.  However, there are things I would like to change to get a more sophisticated feel of my work later on the course.

As of right now, my PUB 101 content can be accessible through the menu tabs of my blog. It’s under the PUB 101 with the separate categories of: process post, peer review & tracking app

The drop down menu, in which my PUB 101 content lives.

Doki Doki Crate: February Box Review ♡

If you must know something about me, I love Japanese culture, particularly anything that I deemed is cute or in Japanese, かわいい, (literal translation: cute).

And another fact about me? I’m a huge sucker for cute packages ˭̡̞(◞˃ᆺ˂)◞*. So, when I discovered Japan Crate’s Doki Doki Box online, I knew I wanted to try and get a subscription box.

Japan Crate  is an online subscription service company based in San Francisco. They send their subscribers a box of either Japanese candies, snacks, makeup products or items for their audience to experience the cultural side of Japan.

Peer Review #1: Photo and Phrases

For today’s post, I will be doing something different, regarding our assignments for our PUB 101 course.

This assignment encouraged us to review one of our fellow classmates website. We were randomly assigned to a peer from our tutorial class, the classmate that I paired up with was Sam, who is the creator and owner of Photo and Phrases.

The first thing I notice about Sam’s blog is the color theme, which is black, gray and white. Despite the dark colors, her writing pops out due to her choice of the white font, which contrasts with the dark background.

Dine Out #1: Abode Restaurant

When you’re both a poor University student and a foodie, the best event for those living in Vancouver, is Dine Out, which, let me emphasize again, is the greatest food event, ever.

It gives people, (AKA, us, students) the chance to try places that would normally put us in more debt (•́︿•̀), at reasonable prices. 

And for it’s 15th year, Dine Out Vancouver is back!

17 days only, people. Try it while you can!
