*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 enjoyed blogging for our PRCA 2330 class even though it did take time to grow on me. I was always interested in blogging to express myself on certain topics and ideas and to also just improve my ability to write on particular topics. I initially did not enjoy blogging for the course because the topics weren’t topics that sparked something in me to write about. I actually was dreading to blog. As time went on I started to appreciate the blog assignment. I was interesting to see the different responses and compare them to my own personal thoughts and ideas. I also appreciate it more because it was a learning experience. Microbiologybytes.com stated that blogging forces you to read in order to gather the input I need for your output and I found that true. I was reading and educating myself on certain topics which I really appreciate now.
Blogging goes beyond this course. A blog is a public diary or journal that is written for others to read. Blogtrafficexchange.com mentioned how blogging is a great marketing tool and can be updated at anytime from anywhere. Before I even read the topic for this week, I was already thinking on how I will continue and change the dynamics of my blogs. So I anticipate to regularly update my blog for non-class purposes after this semester. I actually went on my peers blog and came across a page where someone was not only blogging about the class topics but also about what interested them, like music. Being that I am in the field of communications, blogging can be a major benefit. I can continue to work on my writing skills and also blog about things that interest me such as: entertainment, music and other topics/issues.
