The one article that I looked at closer was the one titled “Milwaukee walks: Exploring Brew City.” On this page there are videos that vary between five and thirty minutes long and are basically virtual tours of Milwaukee and events that are occurring. The videos are taken from Bobby Tanzilo’s facebook lives and he shares them in hopes that they are informative, interesting, and maybe even fun for the viewers to watch. The first one I was drawn to while scrolling through his collection of vlog style videos was the one of the “Beyond Van Gogh” exhibit. In this four minute video he introduces where he’s at for about 30 seconds but then goes quiet to do a walkthrough of the exhibit. He says that this video is just to show the viewer the sounds and type of atmosphere of the place and that he is also writing a story about it for the OnMilwaukee page. The other vlog type videos are on different art exhibits, events or things to do, or just basic walkthroughs of different towns and locations in the area and what they have to offer.
After browsing through various other websites, one site that caught my attention was Shepard Express. I really enjoyed the formatting and also found that they have the widest variety of pages on their tabs. Some of the options that they have that other sites don’t include are “Hear Me Out” which features LGBTQ topics in Milwaukee, as well as puzzles and podcasts.
As for the national website that I chose to visit, the first one that showed up for me was abc news. Upon arriving at this site I thought that something about the layout was off. I couldn’t place my finger on it at first, but I think it’s the fact that the article titles are just listed on the left hand side that throws me off. I was also expecting more tabs to be included, as their website only includes: video, live, shows, and coronavirus. Although, on the rest of the home page there are quite a few intriguing articles to look through.
