Final Project: Luke Bryan

LUKE BRYAN

HERE’S TO THE FARMER

INTRODUCTION

Luke Bryan came from the small town of Leesburg, Georgia and is now rocking out to a sold out crowd a Gillette Stadium. Once he moved to Nashville, he began writing songs for country artists like Billy Currington. Soon after though he wanted to entertain people himself. His first singles were “All My Friends Say,” “We Rode in Trucks,” and “Country Man.” However, the rode to Nashville didn’t happen right away. As he was packing his truck to chase his dream, his older brother was killed in a car crash. This put his dreams on hold for a while. He went to Georgia Southern University and got his bachelor’s in business administration. There he met his wife Caroline. After graduation, he packed his bag once again and headed off to Nashville and never looked back.

Throughout his career Luke Bryan has become a great entertainer. Along with his classic songs like “Country Girl: Shake It For Me” and “Play It Again,” he has the dance moves to go along with the songs. This gets all the fans off their feet dancing along. Luke also has his own clothing lines “Hunting Fishing, and Loving Everyday” and “32Bridge” Which is a bridge very close to Luke back home in Georgia.

His cover photo is just a picture of him dressed as his most popular character Dead Pool. His bio just introducing himself in a short sentence. His two most popular tweets was a retweet and an original. The retweet was from Justin Trudeau who is the Prime Minster of Canada and the original one was him dressed as Deadpool.

Conclusion

Through my analysis of all three of Ryan Reynolds social media accounts, I have determined that his Instagram account is the most successful.  I believe this because of the way it is presented. The account is updated with the most appealing photos. I also believe that as a celebrity he has one the best appropriate, refreshing social media platforms out there.

INTRODUCTION

Meet the Parkers is a blog about the Parker family written by the mother Elizabeth Parker. It chronicles the families journey as they raise their two sons Ezra and Judah. Ezra has a rare multiple system disease called Noonan Syndrome. Elizabeth updates on a regular bias on Ezra health and progress.

CONTENT

The blogs layout is very beautifully done. It includes a header with the name of the blog “Meet the Parker’s” along with a little saying “Peace like a river, love like a ocean, joy like a fountain.” The header also includes Elizabeth’s Twitter handle and website.

The flow continues with it broken down into the sections starting with “ABOUT.” This section consists of how Elizabeth found herself documenting her family’s journey.  Second section “MEET JUDAH” is about her oldest son. This section includes pictures of every month and year of his life. Third section “MEET EZRA” is about her second son and his health journey from birth to today. “NOONAN SYNDROME” is the last sections and it is a summary of the multiple system rare disease.

On the side of each page are links to The Noonan Syndrome Foundation page along with several other helpful links related to the disease. Through out the blog links to other social media outlets related to the author. Below the links are all the years of past posts. It goes all the way back to 2010 to about a few months ago.

The audience to this blog are mostly friends and family. Some of the readers are families that are going through the same situations. People comments are always on the positive and up lifting side of things As a young adult with Noonan Syndrome, I wish my parents had something like this blog as I was growing up.

CONCLUSION

During my analysis of this blog I found it quite well done. This was a blog about a families journey through the good times and bad. They are documenting this time in their lives very beautifully.

My First Puppy

November 26th, 2004 will always be a day that I will forever remember! That was the day I got my first puppy Frank Hadley. Now I am the youngest out of seven kids and our house was pretty full and hectic back then. It was a challenge trying to convince my parents to let us get a pet of any kind. After weeks of trying to convince my mother and it working. My Dad eventually gave in as well! So on this Black Friday back in 04′ my family loaded into the minivan and headed off to New Hampshire to look at puppies.

Once we got the breeder my brothers and sisters began picking out the right puppy. My Dad kept saying “We are only looking and not buying!” Until the breeder said he had a Miniature Dachshund in the barn out in the back., that a family decided they didn’t want anymore. Just then the smallest, cutest puppy I have ever seen walked through the door! That was how Fenway Frank became a Hadley!

Fenway Frank lived a great 12 years, full of tail wags, naps, treats, trips to Boston and Maine and great memories! However, around 11 years old he became sick and we knew our time with him was limited. Sadly on December 5th 2015 he passed away during hos favorite passed time sleeping. That was for sure the toughest day of my life so far. Fenway was not just a pet but my Puppy Brother and my best friend! I will never forget the memoriFenway R.I.P 2015es and I am truly greatful for all the days I had with him!
