So I did a quick search in Google about how to improve the WordPress traffic  and they have some really good suggestions

The link by  Tom Ewer(http://www.wpexplorer.com/increase-traffic-wordpress-website/)  he gives some tips of improving the website traffic. I search about the demographics that are viewing website. The truth thing is that the people are just out there, but how to find them and subsequently getting them to you website is another thing altogether.

Improving Traffic To The Website

1.You should know who are your audience.

This is extremely useful information to increase you blog traffic. If I have to divide into two groups, I will do female and male. For example, when you write a blog entry, you can think about who is you audiences,  one ideas to attract female attention is that writing blog and get the topic which trend to interest women, such as travel, magazine shopping and food. Those content is important way to appeal women’s attention.

2. Beatifying your website,

I have to say, if you website is beautiful and delicate enough, it can catch the audience eyes in the first time.

Check out this link http://www.inkthemes.com/wp-themes/ you can customize you own website and choose one of the themes you interested.

3.Organizing your Schedule Posts in WordPress

(http://www.wpbeginner.com/beginners-guide/schedule-your-posts-in-WordPress/)  There is a certain time in a day when each site gets the peak of their users. Now if you live in a different time zone than your readers, then it can be a problem.’

I’m happy to do this post in the internet, because I didn’t realize this aspect of improving the website traffic.

This is my website data:

Doubting castle 2: flipped lecture

This post will look at some knowledge on digital Drawing Techniques, I am confident with Drawing But not in Digital Drawing techniques, I hope I can learn some useful skill in Jenny’s lecture(http://geniwate.com/?p=1395) and use those knowledge  to improve our digital storytelling project.

The lecture gives me lot of information about digital drawing. For instance, the lecture gives a great summary about bitmap, Lenny gives an image to show what is different about Vector and Raster.

Vector drawing is clean, precise, and it can look somewhat inhuman’   I have to say , those thing is totally new for me. A great thing is that if drawings are part of an animation, we probably choice vector drawing, because in Lenny’s blog, she mentions that ‘ images are more manipulable because they don’t lose quality at different resolution.’ but vector drawing is a little less ‘Natural’ But it is still a good way to simple adjust the resolution.屏幕快照 2015-06-05 下午4.43.23

Lenny gives some links about to help with digital drawing, However, I am very beginner about those skills, so I think those links are great, but I think some very basic links such as how to start a digital drawing  and show me how to use those tools.

So I did a quick research on Google, ‘How to draw a simple shape in Gimp or Photoshop, there are some links are very useful for people who are beginner on digital drawing (like me)  I found some link which are teach people you use gimp http://emptyeasel.com/2008/08/22/how-to-draw-simple-shapes-in-gimp-using-the-pen-tool/  in this lecture by Margot Dinardi. Margot gives very clear step how to use the tools of GIMP to draw a ‘heat’. It is different when I’m using Photoshop to draw a digital drawing.

In addition, I also found some video to teach me how to draw a basic shapes https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1MbCjYgrCEc Although this video is teaching very basic like Circle , square , Rectangle and Oval, but it has useful information which I can learn on it.

Check out theses link about Photoshop, https://helpx.adobe.com/photoshop/using/drawing-shapes.html because as a beginner of Photoshop, I’m alway forget to create a new layers and hope this link can remind me how important to create layers when I use Photoshop to edit images.

Because our digital story is simplifying way of stop motion, and I also draw a cover picture about our project, but I not used digital way to draw on it. I think I can use photoshop to beautify my picture. The challenge is that we cannot use digital drawing to draw every thing, I mean, if I am good at using those technology, I probably use those skills to present our project but unfortunately the technique problem is a big challenge.  Another challenge is that you have an image in your mind that is both hard to verbalize or draw by hand.
