Since the last class Susannah and I decided to each tackle one major aspect of the site. I worked on our home page and included more information on how our project is unique and important for our area. Susannah took on adding more information on male laborers and the wages they earned and how they fit into the society of North Adams. Personally for me trying to create our homepage was really hard. I want it to be short enough that people will not get bored reading it or skim it and loose out on important information, but I also wanted to include enough detail and information to entice people to explore the site further. Finding the balance between the two was really difficult and I think it still needs some work but I decided stepping back and taking a look at it tomorrow with fresher eyes would be best.
