The first thing to set up my blog is to register my domain and install WordPress on my domain. My URL of my blog is skywaiyan.com, it is simply my preferred name Sky and my name Wai Yan! I planned to have a blog discussing computer video games and games review or even some small game tips that people may not know. I decided to name my blog as “The Best Game Troller”, it is because I am troll sometimes when gaming… By the way, I love the way that gaming brings people together as we can always play with friends when gaming! Try out different new games together is fun and TROLL!!!!
Comes to the design of the blog, I chose “Blog Diary” from themes that offered free in WordPress as that is the closest one to how I wanted my blog to look like. I like the way that the theme is neat and clean. It is easy to use and easy to search for any of the blog posts. It also offers a sense that it is a diary-like blog for sharing purpose, also to keep the simplest font allow people to read easily! I changed the title and name of the theme and also customized some of the settings. Like categories, I have two main, big categories which are course work and games. Course work is for PUB101 which it has two subcategories are mini assignments and process posts. For games, which means my weekly blog posts that includes some of my most frequently played games such as Age of Empires II, Apex Legends, League of Legends and PUBG. For the header blog posts – it includes all of my posts that I have published so it is another easy way to explore what I wrote.
I like the most that this theme allowed me to have featured image for every blog posts that make it more attractive and eager to read. I will also post many photos and videos for each blog posts to make it more interesting! In the front page of my blog, I do have “latest posts” and “must read posts” these two columns for readers to explore more and easier before checking out all of the posts. These are my installation and design setup of blog, I hope you like it! Feel free to comment if you have any recommendations or comments for me or my blog!
