An Area Unvisited Behind our Beloved
There is a place in Havertown that no one should ever visit. This place is a dark and mysterious place. The Place Behind the Wawa has many shady people there. They may try to lure you into the back of it, with promises of many goods, like candy or money. But these offers don’t come from direct confrontations, as that would give the identities of these people. Instead, they leave comments on blog posts to get you there, saying that they like your post, that it is the best read in a while. Don’t believe them, and response will get them closer and closer to you until you find yourself behind the Wawa.
Wawa has been tirelessly trying to stop these happenings. The Wawa Corporation’s attempts at stopping these people, while great in effort, have proven fruitless. These elusive people have succeeded constantly in escaping the hands of the Wawa Corp. They run human and drug trafficking deals. They run their business by bringing in poor people who are trying to expand their blog. These people leave comments with positive feedback, but have clearly not read the content. These people will instead, arrange a meetup behind a Wawa near you, and lure you into their trap.
Chris Gheysens, Wawa CEO, recently release this statement:
“We are aware of the issues happening behind the back of our facilities. We are going through our best efforts to prevent any more occurrences of these disappearances. New facilities will be equipped new security tech, to help prevent these people hanging around behind the Wawa. To compensate for these disappearances, we have started an event called HoagieFest.”
The Current Situation
The current state of the area Behind the Wawa has improved but not by much. There is some surveillance to prevent the most obvious cases, but the frequents of the Wawa know how to avoid the surveillance. So while writing blogs, be careful of comments inviting you to join them behind Wawa.
To start, I searched the PlugIns for ‘Google Analytics’ and selected the top result.
I set up a Google Analytics account, so that I could link it to the Plugin. Then I entered the dashboard of my website. I went to my plugins, and selected settings for the Google Analytics plugin.
Then I linked it to my Analytics account, and entered the tracking ID, and it worked. Google was properly tracking activity on my website.
To make the banner for the website, there were a list of steps needed to take to create the banner.
First, I took an image of a building from Irithyll Valley. The native resolution was 3840×2160 pixels. Since that was too big, as I wanted a 960×250 resolution. So I downed the resolution then cropped the image so that it fit the intended resolution.
I then added a small image of the Photoshop logo, as part of webdesign is using Photoshop to make images for the website. Afterward I made the image of the building black and white, as some of the colors were distracting and could take away from the rest of the image. I changed the color balance, as the simple black and white was bland to look at. I made it a blue-ish color so that it would match the tone of the Photoshop logo.
I added text to tell what the site was about, the location, and the phone-number (which is obviously fake). I added a blue, transparent box to put the phone number in there, to highlight it. On all the text, I added a back shadow and a glow effect, as to make the wording stick out a bit from the blue-toned background.
Then I saved it for the web and uploaded it to the site using WordPress.

Amazon is the World’s biggest and most powerful digital market place. There are a couple different sections of Amazon. The first being the normal section for the common buyer. They see all the basics, but there are some features that they are locked out of. The second section is Amazon Prime, where people who are subscribed to Amazon Prime will see the extra features that come with it, like 2-day shipping. The third section is Amazon Business, where business owners can sell their product through Amazon at a 15-20% sales rate.
Amazon Prime is a paid service that devoted Amazon users can use to improve their experience. They get many added features like 2-day shipping, same-day shipping, Amazon services like Music, Video, and Photos. There are many other perks that are included in Amazon Prime.

Distribution Centers: Amazon has strategically placed distribution centers in populated areas
Overall, Amazon is a very good market place that people can use to expand their business.
Today in class, we learned a lot about making a website.
CMS (Content management systems) is the first thing we talked about. This software manages the code for the website so that you don‘t have to.
We then selected a new theme for our website, which changed the overall look of the website.
We made a static home page, as the default one showed all blog posts, which we didn’t want happening.
We then made ‘parent pages’ and ‘child pages’. The parent page is what is shown on the navigation bar, the child page is what is shown while hovering the mouse above the parent page tab.
Overall, we learned a lot about the basics of webdesign, and set our selves up to continue working on our websites in the near future.
