For this Project, you will be creating a new page on WordPress.  Pages are more permanent than posts, and are generally larger entries and provide more details.  This page will stay with you throughout the year, so we can come back and see how we have progressed through the year.  This page should reflect your best work and be a publication that you are excited to share with others to show off the great work you have been doing. Click here to see an example.
