Week one in DS106 swiftly gave me a reality check when I realized just how much work this class requires. My week began with registering my own domain name through Domain of One’s Own. I didn’t get too creative with my domain name selection, just simply my name with middle initial. It was much easier and quicker than finding a twitter name. I then installed WordPress on my webpage to be able to blog easily. I then wrote my first blog post,
After I completed my video I moved onto my first tweet. It took me sometime to find the embed function on my tweet because the YouTube tutorials I was watching showed it in a different location, there must have been an update that moved it.
This is IT! My very first tweet! Thanks to #ds106 I have joined the 328 Million active “tweeters” worldwide (for at least the next 16 weeks)

My last social media introduction was through the application SoundCloud. I chose the song “Holding Out For A Hero” sang by Ella Mae Bowen.
My thoughts on the superhero theme was the next topic to blog about, I titled it Super106 Thoughts. And finally, I have summarized my week’s work in a blog post titled Summary: Week One.
This wraps up DS106 boot camp for me!
