Beginning this year I created my own website to host all of my work as it gave me more personal control over both the aesthetic, and layout of my website. This is especially useful as it allows me to have a unified aesthetic to the entire body of my work making it appear more professional and unique to other students. However the actual creation of the website was fairly obtuse due to the non-user friendly interface of WordPress. However I was able to overcome these problems through seeking help from someone with more experience until I developed my skills enough that now I feel confident in how to successfully manage the blog on my own.
Survey Monkey enabled me to create and present an extremely user friendly and professional looking survey to collect research data on audience tastes. This is especially useful as it made the presentation of the data in the research phases of my work far easier as it automatically creates the graphs and tables collecting the table. Furthermore the online nature of the survey meant that it was easier to distribute as I was able to use social media platforms such as Facebook, Twitter and others easily. Thus allowing me to focus on the creative aspects of my work more as I had more time to do so.
