I think that I’ve learned a lot about blogging this semester from having to do it nearly every week. I definitely still have a lot of work to do in my perspective of blogging, as most the time I forget that there is an audience out there reading my posts and it’s not just a personal diary.
I have however become more comfortable with blogging about a variety of topics. In the past, I had only blogged on things specific to me and what was on my mind. However, through this class I gained experience in blogging on subjects that connected to other people. I learned how to think about what the other bloggers in my community would be saying on the subject and how we can engage together.
Generally, I used to write my blog as if I was just talking to myself. And while I still do struggle with getting out of my off-hand, simple tone, I do spend much more time thinking about what I’m writing, how I’m writing it and the people that will be reading it.
