Website Afterlives. FAQ.

I suggest you revise the site into a professional digital portfolio. Your portfolios can be organized around a central theme of your work/research, or your professional identity can serve as the basis of the site. Once you choose a guiding idea and set of images, you can organize your larger Domain network accordingly. You may also want to revise the site in anticipation of taking another Domain of One’s Own course at Emory.
You need reorganize your content by moving the work you produced for this course into a separate section of the larger website, perhaps under a tab called Shakespeare’s Globe or ENG 210. OR, you can move the coursework generated for this class into a separate sub website that you connect to your main website. Either way, remember that a personal site (arranged thematically or according to your online identity) will likely include navigation options that direct users to pages/subdomains with content such as Resume, CourseWork, OutReach, and/or SocialMedia. Visualize your main site as a hub that supports all your interests.
You may want to move the content you generated for Shakespeare’s Globe over to a subdomain. A subdomain is an add-on domain, or a site that operates separately out of the root domain you registered. For instance my root domain is mckennarose.org and the course site shakespeare.mckennarose.org is a subdomain. Follow these instructions to move your site to a new subdomain.
Yes! I will be available online or inperson all next semester, so if you have questions email me at msrose@emory.edu. Also, the Emory Writing Center staff is trained to support web writing. Remember, if you get stuck with any sort of online writing, Google the problem and then use the instructional and then try to work through it with the instructional information the search yields.
