Re-reading my blogs has been a very interesting experience. My blogs split between two personalities: academic and serious versus sassy and personal. This is actually really funny because my adviser T Hetzel, Josh, and I discussed my dichotomy between serious academic Paige and candid Paige at our orientation. I seem to have more fun and find most benefit in the blogs that allow me to explore my personality rather than comment on an article. One of my goals for the minor is to be able to find my voice in my writing. These really seem to have more of a direct correlation to that goal.
For the next few weeks, I’d really like to be able to increase the amount of blogs that I put out. I’d also like to be able to harness in some of my personal commentary and turn it into a more beneficial component of my writing rather than just some random blurbs in my post. I would also like to direct my comments toward specific points brought up in the blogs instead of making general summary statements.
