Keep Calm and Blog On.

Task: What have you enjoyed, or not, about your blogging experience this semester? Do you anticipate regularly updating your blog for non-class purposes after this semester? Why or why not?

I was a blogger prior to this class. I started a personal blog on Blogger last December when I changed my major from Education to Journalism. At first, I thought I’d never have anything to say and that there is no way people would ever want to read what I did have to say. I have almost 200 followers and absolutely love blogging and the release it gives me.

Since I already enjoyed blogging, having these blog assignments didn’t bother me at all. When we were first told we had to blog, I was like how am I supposed to keep up with two blogs? But, it hasn’t been hard because I only use this blog for this class and will keep it afterwards in case I need it for another class. I don’t want my class blog and my personal blog being the same. If I never have another class that requires blogging then, in time, I may get rid of this one but for the time being, it will stay up. For the most part, the topics we had to choose from to actually write the blog post were fairly simple and sometimes taught me a little bit. I had to understand the concept(s) I was having to write about, so I had to really look into things before writing.

I’d say the class blogging experience was pretty good and not as stressful as I thought it might be.

  1. I too was already a blogger before having to create this blog. But I had been thinking about a blog that could hopefully become my online resume for potential employers, so this blog fits perfect in that aspect. Unlike you I have not been able to keep up with both blogs this semester. So I will be glad on winter break to be able to get back to my blogger blog and enjoy what one of my favorite hobbies reading and reviewing. So if you do not want your class and personal website to intertwined maybe this blog being a online resume for you could be an option. Good Luck!

  3. I had never blogged before taking this class, but I very much enjoyed reading your posts Michelle. I can tell that you are not a beginner when it comes to blogging. Your profile is so cute, and I could definitley use a few pointers in my future blogging experience, which I hope to continue.

  5. That’s awesome that you already had a taste of blogging before this class! I, on the other hand, had no Idea what I was doing! Maintaining a blog will definitely benefit you in the future, being a Journalism major. Having a blog isn’t necessarily the most difficult assignment, but it does require some people like myself to step outside of my comfort zone.

  7. I really enjoyed your blog. It is entertaining to me to see why exactly people blog and their thoughts on blogging because I haven’t decided if I would enjoy it as a release or just a nuisance. Thanks Michelle!
