Fun and Frustration


On Monday in class I was so excited to learn more about coding. From 2010-2012 I used to write for an online magazine. I wrote articles like, “Top Ten TV Prom Episodes” and other fun, silly things. I felt so professional, and like a true writer.

Then, one day, my editor asked if I could begin coding my own articles. I wrote back to her saying that I didn’t even know what that meant. However, the next day she sent me a video like this, which sort of helped. I kept doing research until I learned the basics. stewie


So when I sat down to write this blog post, I immediately knew what I wanted to write about! I wanted to post some sassy article I wrote when I was 15 and dazzle everyone with my 10th grade vocab skills. HOWEVER when I went to the website, I was so annoyed to see that all issues before 2013 were taken down. Those fiends!

      • First I tried using the wayback machine and dig up old issues that way. Yet, Portrait Magazine wasn’t on their database.
      • Then I simply tried to go through my old emails and see if (somehow?) I could find some weird loophole to an old article of mine. Of course that plan failed.
      • Finally, I emailed my old editor and asked her if she can put older issues up.

I don’t know how this story will end, but hopefully one day I can share my “That’s STILL So Raven” article with everyone here.
