Writing for computer screens was definitely nothing I have ever done before, so it was a learning experience I came to enjoy. Although it's much more stressful to design, the outcome is one I like to see more-so than a regular paper. Specifically, though, similar to stated above, the most difficult part of designing online essays is incorporating website and video links within paragraphs. It makes a weird break that you have to work around, and you have to put it in such a way that it should make the reader become eager to click on it to see what it leads to.
With all of THAT comes making sure your paragraphs aren't bulky to where it makes the reader bored at first glance. It makes me, as the author, busy trying to state all of my opinions, facts, and words coming to my head but having to think about keeping it "pretty" and enjoyable to see. It made my brain multitask on the spot, which made these online essays much more challenging than regular ones..
In my opinion, I really like this program we use. I wrote my digital essay about college degrees on word document and it made designing it MUCH more difficult. It took me long periods of time to just make a title that was eye-catching without just giving it a font and moving on, and it's almost impossible to make picture really look interesting and fitting. I think all digital essays should be based on this program because it not only makes things easier, but it looks more appealing.

If there were something I needed to work on, it'd be time management. I've been busy this semester being in GSU's Chicago the Musical, and I feel like I personally could have produced better work for you to see with stronger opinions and reasoning by prioritizing my time and events better.
