MPM107 Blogging

13 Sep

Blogs, one of the most personalized ways to express yourself in one place on the internet (in my opinion). Now I have to explain why I say this because after doing research on blogs, this is my final thought. Blogs basically give a person or group a way to express their ideas, thoughts or findings all in one place. Each person can do it creatively in which ever way they choose, that is what makes it personal, because just like each person is unique, so is each blog. I think one of the things I saw most when looking through different blogs was that although most follow a certain way of organizing and showing information (like using comment feeds and categorizing posts) each person still has an identity through their blog. I think this is present because not only can you verbally express anything you choose, you can also use links, pictures, videos, songs, and other forms of media in your blog to express ideas through different forms of media. I think this is what makes blogs enjoyable, because a reader is able to become apart of a persons blog in more ways than one, although most blogs are text based.

Another thing I found when researching blogs was that if there is something that your interested in (crafting, sports, beauty, and the list goes on) that you can follow or subscribe to blogs and every time they post you can have another learning experience. I think this is a great feature of blogs because if someone finds a blogger who they connect with and/or enjoy reading they can keep up with their blog because its something that it kept up with (as apposed to reading an internet website that someone wrote in once and will never comment or keep up with). With most blogs, you can see new posts every month, every week or even (for those serious bloggers) everyday.

I think another important aspect of blogs is that the person blogging is able to discuss what ever they want. This, I think, is important because there are not many areas of the Internet where you can write continuously and constantly about anything you choose.

Me, being a new blogger, I do see some challenges. I think blogs, although look simple, with usually just one basic feed, there is a technical aspect behind it. I don’t think that it is impossible to learn; I just think it will be a little bit of a challenge for me to grasp at the beginning.

Hopefully after I overcome all the challenges with learning how to blog, I will be able to get right into what I think will be exiting to do, which is be able to have creative ability to discuss certain topics, and my thoughts or findings around it. I think I am excited about being able to have a voice on the Internet as well, because blogging is a great way to show people who you are, what’s important to you, or just your opinion on certain topics.

I have to say that I am definitely excited to have a blog, and be apart of this new world!
