To be honest, I did not think that I was going to find a topic to blog about, yet alone how to even do “blogging.” Some people are really good at it with the most interesting topics, funny titles, and creativity in their writing. Blogging is definitely to me a type of art. You sit there and think what not only interests you, but your readers as well. Then, once the thought gets into your head you sit there and just type. You type away at the computer, starring at your screen for so long that you get a headache, and your fingers start to cramp up because they are trying to keep up with the thoughts in your head on what to write at the same time. Even right now my left pinky is starting to twitch. Blogging takes skill, time, patience, and a lot of work. I ended up enjoying this class and the assignments that I had to do for my blog. Yeah, maybe not one of you read any of my shit, but i don’t care. For me, I got to learn much about how social media is such a mass medium for our generation, and I learned more about my inquiry topic, fitness. I got to show my skill on my knowldege for fitness as well as improve it by looking up information and following new accounts on Instagram. I have learned that when an idea pops up in your head, it is there for a reason. It was triggered by another thought, or something you hear, or something you see and it MUST be written down because clearly it is somehow important to you. Who knows, maybe it could be an important thought to someone else too but they just didn’t think of it quick enough.
It is important to use writing as a form of speaking your voice. You have something to say, write it down. You have a huge concern? Write it down. Just as speaking, writing can also be just as “loud.” By writing on any source of social media, thousands of people could end up reading it; rather if it be on Facebook, Twitter, or even your own Blog.
What I will take away from this class is how to write on a blogging format, grab a readers attention, and the importance of jotting down your feelings, thoughts, ideas and voice.
I am going to employ social media personally by making sure I watch what I put on the internet such as Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. You never know who is scrolling through your feed and once it is up, it is always accessible. For my professional side, it is a way to help me learn how to properly type in a way that I speak. You write how you talk, so by me performing any type of writing on media, I have to make sure my sentences and language make sense and are in the proper tone.
