The blog that I am interested one is one that I’m basically forced to look at– that of my roommate!! She is also a Minor in Writing Student but this blog is one she does for fun. Most of her writing is done at like 3 AM when she feels quickly inspired after several hours of Netflix.
The purpose of the blog in one word would be expression. While her blog posts do go under categories like lessons or humor, they are mostly just her funny stories summarized up for entertainment for others. it is super aesthetically pleasing because every post includes pictures and is well formatted. The article titles are catchy and engaging and everything about this blog from its ridiculous stories to the fact that it actually exists makes it one that really interests me because it is so unique.
In terms of an organizational strategy, I think the broader the categories the better for blogs that are expressive. Just like on our MIW blog, where we can make it into gateway and our cohort, her blog has those kind of hashtag sort of things to file the articles in. The top even have a slideshow of some popular articles which is a great way to begin scanning through categories as you click through!
