Before this class started, I always loved to write. From participating in writing competitions to writing just for the hell (sorry, heck) of it, it’s been a pastime that I enjoy as much as reading…and if you know me, then you’d know I love to read!
Blogging is the same thing that I’ve been doing for the past 15 years, except it’s digital. I look at blogging as a way to express my feelings on things in a fun way, while also learning in the process. I didn’t know the mechanics of a blog post until taking my digital PR class.
I think my writing has improved quite a lot in the duration of this class and it will continue to grow as I gain more experience with the blogosphere (I didn’t know this was actually a word until now).
Use Blogging to Your Advantage
Blogging is a great way to not only improve your writing skills and vocabulary, but it also gives you an advantage in the real world. How many people can say they have a blog? Okay, maybe more than you think. But let me rephrase this. How many recent college graduates have a blog they can show their future employers? Probably not many at all.
What sets me and everyone else in the class apart from other college students is the fact that we kept a weekly blog. We continually got better with writing (hopefully) and we have more to add to our good-looking portfolios.
The Final Blog
So, is this the end to my blogging career? The answer is simply no. I may not keep up with it once a week like I should, but I think maintaining an active blog profile will help me in the future.
So thank you, Professor Low. Thank you for teaching us the wrong and right ways to write a blog. Thank you for showing us the ropes of the digital world. Basically, thank you for making us write a blog because it will really set us apart from our competition.
