Here is my website. Any last minute suggestions?
I have started creating my website… Trying to decide if I need to break it up and put other info in… Take a look.
ALSO — I think that target audience is a really important subject for this specific website but since I didn’t hear back from Zoe and cannot find anything other than a general age online, this is what I got. I am not loving it. If anyone has any suggestions on that specific section, let me know. (Or any section for that matter.)
Here is more of what I am going for as far as spacing and such goes.
I decided to not focus on YouTube generally. Instead I decided to do an entire site on Zoella and her channel/blog. This is still pretty rough but I am starting to see where it is going.
I have emailed her (probably wont ever hear back) about target audience numbers and other things so that is why that section is blank.
I also plan on inserting her channel trailer on my site because it gives a pretty good intro into her content and the popularity of her stuff.

There is still a lot of text so I am trying to figure things out but it should give you an idea about where I am headed.
So… This is what I have so far. I am toying with the idea of either talking about my personal favorite “YouTuber,” Zoella, in between all of the general YouTube information (how her channel has evolved, the type of money she is making, her recent book deals, etc.) OR do a step by step guide on how to become successful on “YouTuber.” (I, obviously, don’t have personal experience but I found a few good references on the subject.)
I also plan on adding more numbers and charts (money being made).
I am currently fascinated in YouTube and the “YouTubers.” I can’t believe the popularity of some channels and the amount of money some of these people are making. It is unreal. I want to focus on the current viewing stats, money, most popular accounts and more. As far as my own research go, I will probably look into how often people watch, what they watch, and if they have a YouTube account themselves. I am trying to come up with some “unique” way to display the information… so any suggestions are welcome. 🙂
After racking my brain, trying to figure out my topic, and narrowing my topic, I did a bit of research and found some good sites with a TON of stats and other interesting info. Most sites seems reliable since the data comes straight from YouTube and its stats site (SocialBlade).

These are some unique facts about YouTube that could make a small timeline (1 of a bunch of things I plan on doing) really interesting…

I definitely think there is plenty of information for this project — especially numbers, that I can work with.
Here we goooo. (Of course if this is fine with Bro. Frohn…?)
After talking to Bro. Frohn, I found a data set from NYC Data. I imported, designed and created a story about the areas in NYC with the most graffiti. I am hoping to make final touches this week (or as soon I as I talk to Bro. Frohn) and then move on to the final project where I do my own research, import it into Tableau and (if there is time) create a website. WordPress obviously won’t let me upload the actual Tableau file so all I have are screen shots. Everything scrolls up and own and there are play buttons to move through the years available.
New process book page (I have also updated my sources):
Here are screen shots to what I have completed in Tableau. This is the only way to view them unless you view the workbook with Tableau Reader (it wont let me attach the workbook file here.)
I decided to move forward with a data set that involves world population, health, development and business. I am focusing on the first three. I have only finished the screens (still need to fix a few things) but I plan to have the storyboard completed by next week.
The scatter plots look boring but they aren’t. They are set to move through the years but the screen shot is only able to show one year/one point.
