Practice Makes Perfect

If you told me I would be doing this a month ago I would have told you you were insane. Therefore, I might need a couple posts to get better at this. So, here we go. 

Over the course of this semester I hope to gain more experience creating digital media content, blogging, branding myself, and writing for the web.  

One skill that I am particularly looking forward to social media management. It is all about who you know, or better yet who knows you and your work. As an aspiring artist I believe social media is a great tool for exposure when used correctly. I do not possess any knowledge regarding social media of one’s own business or brand. Therefore, with graduation getting closer each day I cannot wait for the opportunities this class will allow me to have.  

My plans after college are unclear. I have a considerable amount of interest in diverse areas regarding a career. I have utilized my time in college to expose myself to as many things as possible. This has also led me to have various (average) skills. I place a lot of value on this. I want to enter the work force with as many ‘tools’ in my toolbox. Not only do I believe these skills will help me, but they will also expand my capabilities as a learner.   

That being said, I plan for the content of this blog to kinda be all over the place. Some posts may be an attempt at trying something new, while others will be an expansion on my interests. 

My love for music will most likely be a driving force for this blog. I spend a lot of time in CO attending concerts in ‘hole in the wall’ type clubs and venues chasing underground artists on impeccable sound systems. I’m considering creating a post on the best sound systems in CO.

I also hope to use this blog to display local DJ’s to the rest of the community.

Cheers!

My name is Scout Vannoy.

I am currently a student attending the University of Wyoming studying Communication and Graphic Design. I am originally from Cody, a small town located in northern Wyoming.

Since I remember, I have had an intense eagerness for creating and the creation process. I originally painted and drew, but after I attended the university I discovered a liking for graphic design. If I am not working or completing my obligations as a student I am sitting behind my computer creating designs I sometimes sell. I have created various stickers and prints, and I hope to start printing on clothes within the next couple months.

Design isn’t my only passion. I also love music, specifically live music. I travel across the country following my favorite artists whenever I can. During these moments of musical bliss I am reunited with my friends, who live in various parts of the nation, that I have met at previous festivals/concerts I have attended. These individuals are a lot of the reason I love doing what I do.

My plans after graduation are still unclear. I have a considerable amount of interest in various areas, so it has been difficult for me to just choose one.

I hope to utilize this blog to expand my writing skills and journalism/design portfolio.

The post can be short or long, a personal intro to your life or a bloggy mission statement, a manifesto for the future or a simple outline of your the types of things you hope to publish.
