Phil’s Flash Site

My friend Phil and I had a project for our computer class that involved creating a small web site to demonstrate that we could do it. It was a team effort and Phil and I worked together to complete the project.

We first chose a niche to make our website more focused. Our teacher did not care what the theme of the site was, but insisted that it did have one main theme rather than a collection of thoughts.

We decided to make our theme on pit bulls because both of us have large pit bulls at home. My dog’s name is Thor and his dog’s name is Rascal, named after the band Rascal Flats. We figured this would be the perfect theme since we wouldn’t have any trouble finding images of pit bulls or information about the breed.

The first thing we did was to write up our content and take some pictures so that we would be ready when it came time to actually design the site. My mom let us use her brand new digital camera for the task. Our borrowed camera took extraordinary images of the dogs and Phil and I managed to write some pretty compelling articles on pit bulls.

Our next task was to find a free web host provider since we didn’t want to spend any money on a silly little school project. We searched the Internet for free providers, but all we could find were blog sites. Finally Phil stumbled across a link that said click here for a free website and we decided to check it out.

This site turned out to be a great place for creating free flash sites so we decided to sign up and use them. The site even let us create an amazing game based off of pit bulls and even a cool introduction. The dogs were animated and the game was fully interactive to use.

In the end we had a lot of fun and got the top grade in our class as well as a positive meeting with the school principle. Our principle ended up enlisting us for the creation of a school web site and we got extra credit for it. We’re just starting on our school’s site, but I think it will be the best site we’ve made so far.
