What I have learned from maintaining my blog from the past 13 weeks is that it isn’t an easy task. There are so many people who write on their blogs everyday and keep them updated and they’re not even doing it for a class or getting paid. They are doing it because they have a cause or they want their voice to be heard. What I hope someone could get out of my blog is an understanding of what blogs are capable of for a participatory democracy. We all have to be informed citizens and the best way to do that is by keeping yourself up to date with the latest news and what people are talking about. The proudest work for me on my blog is, HW 18: The Diet and Fashion Industry are to Blame for Your Anorexia. I love this post because I talk about something that I’m very passionate about and it shows in my arguments. I think after this class is over I will maintain my blog but it will obviously have a different tone because I will be writing for myself and not be writing assignments. I have enjoyed learning how to use this new technology and it will, I’m sure impact my life in a positive way.
