Hello everyone, my name is John Forest, and this is the introduction to my new blog for DGST 101: Introduction to Digital Studies. A little bit about myself: I am a senior history major here within the College of Education at the University of Mary Washington, and this is my final semester! I have already had experience creating a website for a few of my history classes, and I combined them into one domain. If you’re interested, click here to take a look!
This is a subdomain of jpforestiii.com, which I picked accidentally when I was a freshman. However, even though it might not be the cleanest domain name, it follows all of my usernames for other platforms like instagram, snapchat, twitter, etc. I decided to use WordPress for my websites because I am most familiar with it. I also have experience with Omeka, but it is not a good fit for a blog style website. Thank you for reading, have a fantastic semester!
