When I first realized that I would be blogging in this class, I was pretty bummed out. I did not want to blog by any means, and I definitely didn’t want to be graded while doing so. Although, the process turned out to be much better than I expected, and it wasn’t bad at all. In fact, I’m glad that this counted for a large portion of our grade within the class, because it was a good way to keep the motive there.
If I had to make changes to my blog, I would just allow more time to be spent on the little details of it. Like changing the background, more images included, or just more of the smaller details enhanced. The widget was a really great tool when blogging, and being able to move it to the side or bottom of your posts was really helpful in presenting ideas. This experience could definitely benefit me in the future, because any time you are writing you are bettering that skill that will be used in any career field. Just because my blog was specifically about Jesus and everything He has done within my life, doesn’t mean that throughout writing these posts my vocabulary wasn’t enhanced or I just became a better writer in general. Blogging is just like writing an essay, except it is something that you actually have a passion for which prompts you to work on it unlike an essay. Whenever I have a career later in life I may write/blog about it, so that others aspiring the career can see the ins and outs of what they would be doing if they pursued it.
There were many more benefits to blogging than I would have thought, and I am glad that I took this course. It was a good experience and I will recommend this course to any of my friends that may be interested. Below is a link that I found that reinforces all of the beneficial aspects of blogging!
