As an editorial assistant at the Delavan Enterprise weekly newspaper, I was responsible for writing all obituaries (based information received from families and funeral homes) and laying out the content for the obituary page – this also meant writing/editing other articles and news briefs for the page.
The attached example is from the Obituary page (page 4) from the October 22, 2011 edition of the Delavan Enterprise.
I started this blog in late 2010 to see how Word Press worked – it was in order to say that I had experience with the blogging site to state it in a job application. I did not get that job.
I then used this site for a class I was at talking in the winter of 2011 on Visual Literacy at the Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design (MIAD). I rarely posted to it and frankly no one – not even my instructor read it.
Once the MIAD class ended in April 2011, I occasionally posted examples of my work that I thought would worth sharing – I mean to say documenting. I stopped posting as soon as started getting busy with two jobs, the end of my studies at Gateway Technical College, volunteer work and try to find a job to use my project management skills. My last post was almost a year ago.
WHY END THE BLOG
Now, as I am looking to update my “digital presence” (such as a new look to my website tstargos.com), I thought it was time to bring this blog to closure as well.
