DISTRICT 12 — The three of us, all lovers of the “Hunger Games” books, built a fan site that is becoming  popular with peers who also like the book series. Here is why and how we created the website:

Manon

I love the “Hunger Games” so much. The “Hunger Games” is real popular in school too. When the idea of a fansite struck us, we quickly got to work. Apparently, it costs $7 a month for a website. That wasn’t gonna happen. So we typed in,”how do we make a free website.” We found a service and started our site. After a while of working, we weren’t satisfied with this service. We set off to find a new place to build a site and we found Webs.com. And we started our site. You can become a member of our site, unlike with the other service. There were many cool widgets you can use and it was real fun. We couldn’t wait to get the word out!

Claudia

I had a lot of fun building this website, as much as I love the “Hunger Games” (which is a lot). The website is still getting built, but it is open to the world.

Lindsay

I had a lot of fun making the website just as Claudia said. I really enjoyed making a website for the best book series ever and the soon-to-be best movie ever. My favorite part about making the website was either making the t-shirts (which was really fun and decorative) or making the photo gallery.  Manon, Claudia and I decided to make it when we were all reading the series, and I just thought, “We should definitely make a website for the best series ever.” We had a lot of trouble finding a website that would let us make our own free site though. As Manon said, one charged $7 a month (rip off!). But putting in the hard work on the research was worth it, and it was certainly not over at that point. We still had to make the website. But, we managed okay. It’s still in the making, but I’m proud of it.
