About


Hey! I'm Liz Lorena. I'm a May 2019 ITI program graduate from Rutgers University who makes websites and aspires to be a game developer. This is my blog about art, programming, and working on the Web. I have a YouTube channel and also plans for a WordPress theme store and some small games. You can find more information about me here.

I started this blog and my YouTube channel because one of my creative outlets is writing, and I wanted my own little spot on the Web where I can share with others the things I have learned in web and game development and my thoughts on other topics. Posts and videos on this blog are not sponsored unless otherwise stated in the post or video. There are no ads on this site, but my YouTube channel may run ads at some point in the future. I'm transparent about my affiliate/referral codes and links.

These are just a few websites that worked for me, and I would recommend them to anyone because these are no bullshit sites that don't sell your information, spam your email, or scam you for your work.

Making sure your network of online profiles and sites are named consistently is important for your brand, especially if you are a professional. The process of connecting a custom domain or subdomain to your blog or website may seem challenging for a beginner, but thankfully it's easier than you may think. The most complicated aspect of it is that the way you do it varies depending on your host and domain name registrar (DNR). I only have experience working with Namecheap, so for this post I will be explaining how to connect domains and subdomains from this DNR to my favorite free hosting providers Tumblr, Github Pages, and x10Hosting.com.

If you're like me, then you probably can't stop looking for ways to make your professional brand look better online, and a solid way to show off your brand online is with an online portfolio showing off your work and projects. Doing this on a budget, however, is probably a top priority while you go through college. These are just seven things I've learned while observing professionals online that have allowed me to make my portfolio sites for little to nothing.

This was a paper I did for my Structure of Information course in which I analyze the talk page of a specific Wikipedia article. For this paper I chose the article for the 1993 Waco siege.
