First task - Alex Fairclough, idea 2

My second project idea is a blog dedicated to teaching people how to play basic musical instruments. It is a collation of useful sites, blogs, forums, videos and tutorials.
I taught myself to play guitar and banjo using Internet forums but found I had to research and constantly go back and forth between sites so I felt by embedding useful media within this blog would make it easier to get around.

  1. I love the fact that you have 2 project ideas! :)
    And really nice idea too! However, you may want to explore to see if a Google Site may not actually be a better solution than a blog for what you want.

    Have a look at this link:

    which is on our Google Sites Notes page, and explore the links on how to make a Google site.
    With a Google site, you can also create many types of websites - with different templates, and one of the features of a Google site is that you can also upload files to the site.

    The difference is that it won't have a blog, but will look more like a complete website with links. The other advantage of a Google site is that you can also have sub-pages under pages, and you can hide some pages from view, until you want people to see them. You can also set permissions on individual pages. There are also lots of lovely templates. Check out the tutorials in the links above and see what you think.

    Sangeet :)
