I have to share this with you because:
a.) I an kinda proud of my son’s history project we just completed.
b.) I need to deflect from that confessional hoarding post I wrote earlier today.
I may not be able to successfully get my butt in gear to clean my office but if you need a state project or a report of mixed media on your favorite Medieval Emperor then I am your girl!
I thought I was being clever when I came up with this idea but apparently I am not the only one. My son had to created a story board that was 11 x 17 that depicted the life of Justinian the Great. Turns out he was a pretty cool dude y’all. He fought wars and converted pagans and he’s historically famous for rewriting Roman Law. But what I bet you didn’t know was that he had a facebook page.
Interested in creating one? It’s easy. Open your facebook page on your screen, or find someone that has one. Grab a screenshot (you probably have a shortcut key on your key board). Paste it into a program you can edit the shot in. I have used Publisher, Pages and Word as well as a new program I found called GIMP. Its free and very useful for bloggers who are constantly using screen shots. Here is a sample below of what it looks like.
The consensus out there is that facebook uses the fonts Lucida Grande and Tahoma. I used the font Lucida Grande (you can download it for free if you don’t have it here). Create text boxes and fill them with the color white, place the text boxes over the screenshot to cover the existing facebook updates. Type directly in the text boxes to create your own facebook comments. I also chopped up the screen shot and grabbed images like the thumbs up. Here is blog that goes into more detail. You can download my Word doc below to used as your title, its a good facebook blue match.
