Sabrina’s Reflection on Helping Make This Website

My project for the term has been to create a website through WordPress that simply presents all of the digital translations and platforms that my peers have used. I took the goal of having a site to host all of the digital translations and added many different elements to the site to make it both user-friendly and simple but informative. My process first began with brainstorming as to what would be useful for this site and once I got an idea of what we needed, I first wireframed on paper and then made a digital wireframe. When I was ready, I began building the site on WordPress and Divi. I came to find that having a home page, platforms page, digital translation page, a blog page, a learn more page, and a contributors page were best for this site. Aside from this, I also decided to have a sub-navigation for platforms and for digital translations, where platforms host the translations based on what platform they used and digital translations host the translations based on the topic they did it on. I learned so many different concepts related to web development during this project, one being the importance of accessibility accommodations. While planning the website, I had to consider what colors to use in order to allow for those with visual impairments to still be able to read. Another part of this was also making sure that all the images had alt tags and the headings were put down as headings rather than large paragraph text. One of the last pages I decided to add was the learn more page, which came about after I realized that we should provide some type of resources to help get people started. This project taught me that having a goal and sticking to the goal, instead of thinking about other factors, is very important in order to maintain productivity.
