Blogging is something that is, in a way, controversial. Some people are really for it and others believe there are a few significant downsides. To me, blogging is a great thing, though there are a couple aspects of it that I would warn people about.
Blogging, in essence, is a way to communicate your ideas utilizing a blog. As I, along with several of my peers, continue on our PLE Project “journey”, I think that blogging is fantastic. Blogging is really up to you; you can either update your blog every couple of hours (providing you have time, of course) or every couple of weeks. And everything you post is dependent on your interests. This is one of the most wonderful things about blogging – every blog will be unique in a way, since everyone likes different things and has various ideas about topics. Take my friends and I, for example. I have a strong passion for basketball and the NBA, so a lot of my posts have been relating to the NBA. On the other hand, one classmate of mine is enthusiastic about drawing and painting, so he may likely post about those particular subjects.
With blogging comes the option to connect with others and view their blogs. If you have a blog, people from around the world can comment on your posts and this brings new thoughts and overall a richer wealth of information.
However, many people are hesitant about blogging, since anyone can view a blog and all the stuff on it. This was one thing that I was wary about initially. Despite this, I thought that the views of others and their potential comments would be a beneficial thing, as it would give me more perspectives of something I had posted.
Another thing that I originally was unsure about was what to write on my blog. I was cognizant of the fact that I could post articles relating to anything, but was stuck on where to start. After a while, I then jotted down my biggest interests and from that point used the notion that I could blog about any of those things, which was quite easy.
I love blogging and although there are things that may turn a person away from starting their own blog, I encourage you to put them aside and create your own blog. Blogging is an amazing way to endlessly write about things you like. The whole design of your blog, its concept… all of this is based on your preferences.
That’s it for now. Talk to you soon,
