Write a poem, but not just any poem.  Your poem must set the scene for your blog theme.  It should match the colors, layout, and overall theme of your posts.  The poem contents/meaning, structure, and length (at least 10 lines) are up to you.


This poem should be recited using a recording software (or straight to soundcloud) without any extra audio.  You need a steril environment.  This is your blog so we should only hear your voice!!


Embed the audio into a blog post and tag it appropriatly.  Remember, we will all see the theme of your blog in the post!  Don't forget Design week; use the shapes and layout as inspiration.  Read through this to learn more about what the colors on your blog can tell someone.
