Tech Task #11 is frustrating me…I cannot seem to figure out how to use BubbleShare for making my digital story so I switched to One True Media. Got the pictures that I wanted uploaded and in the right order but I can’t use the text feature for free, which means no story. Then there is the fact that I have no idea how to use my voice to do this either. I know Business Education major, you would think that I would have some idea how to do these types of things but in truth this is not my area of expertise.

So that was a no to One True Media, on to the next option. I checked some of my classmates blogs to see what they had done for this task and Erika used Animoto…so on to that. Animoto, boo! Can only create thirty second videos and it says right on the site that this should be 12-15 photos. I only had 10 and it only included six of them. I have decided that I have spent too much time on this and I am just going to go with what I had done on One True Media.

There is my digital story. Some of the pictures I obtained from the Flikr Creative Commons, but most of the pictures are actually of my dog Rider and couple of both of my dogs, Rider and Ganzer. Rider is a purebred chocolate lab and Ganzer is a yellow lab/german shepherd/husky mix. The pictures that I took from the Creative Commons are the ones of the chocolate lab in the water…the rest are of my dogs.

We have had Ganzer for almost eleven years and Rider we got last summer as a four month old puppy.  My parents sold their house in my home town, where I spent the last 14 years of my life and where my dogs have always lived. They will be moving at the end of April from the 4.5 acres that they currently live on to a house in town. Our dogs have always lived outside and very much love the open space that they currently have. We had to make the tough decision to leave them behind…so sad! This story is one that I will be able to look back on to remember all of the good times with my dogs, how I will miss them. They will be in good hands as their new owners are fantastic people and they will be much happier on the open land as opposed to the confines of a town house, but it is still sad for our entire family!

Hope that you enjoy the video!
