My New Avatar

Has anyone noticed my brand new avatar? If you haven’t, let me introduce you to him! I made Mr. Felix with the website Animoto. The website is in Japanese, but I used inferences to make it work. Knowing chinese also helped me make it work. Here is a picture of Mr. Felix!

For my avatar, I decided to use my own hair color and basic features. I then added messy hair because I always wonder what it would be like to have really messy hair. I also decided to use a red tie and blue pants because red and blue reminded me of superman, and I thought that a white shirt matched the red tie well. Finally, I decided to have sandals because I can’t stand wearing sneakers and dress shoes. I chose my background because it is a picture of my home, Hong Kong, and I love the bright lights of the city at night.

Now, I’m going to teach YOU how to make an avatar using Animoto! Here are very simple instructions (with pictures)

Comparing About Me Pages

The edublogs student challenge is back! And the first challenge is all about introducing yourself! I am honored to have my about me page as an example on the challenge post. For the first challenge, we have to compare the examples on the post. My favorite about me page, is my own. No it’s not, I’m just kidding. I will not include my friend Tina’s about me page and my about me page so I am not biased.

My favorite page was written by WarriorKat. I think that although her layout is slightly messy, she uses different colors and fonts with her text, she uses engaging pictures (with credit) and also is written in detail. I really liked the other about me pages as well, but hers really stuck out when I went to view it.

Anyways, I hope that you’ve enjoyed this very short post. See you next time!
