In Tech Class during this 6 week, we have worked on 3 things. Blog research, Blog brainstorm, and Learning about WordPress. Those were important because we had to learn what makes a good blog. What I learned from this unit is to know what to post, and how we could grab people’s attention.
We learned those 3 important things, so we can create a really good blog with good information, good appearance, and entertainment. If you didn’t have good information or a bad background blog, no one will come to your blog because you don’t have a good blog. People want good blog so they can get inspired and get good information. The blog research helped me by looking at people’s blog and getting inspired and knowing the different categories, designs, etc. on blogs. I can now make a good blog, and because I looked at other people’s blog, I need will need to understand what people think about my blog. The Blog brainstorm was a brainstorm of ideas you can write on your blog. For example, you could write about your passion/hobbies, favorite sports, etc. I could control my blog and do what I wanted to do for my blog. The Learning about WordPress helped me, a lot. We had to learn the different sections and what they do. So you can edit your blog! Because we learned the 3 important things, now I know how to post things and design my blog background/header/themes and add pages.
The three most important criteria to me is design, entertainment, and safety. First of all, I think design is important because if you had a boring white background and a really small Title of the blog, people will not go to your blog because it doesn’t STAND OUT and maybe because the title is not big enough. The blog title is really important because people will need to know what your blog title is so they can understand the topic. The header image should relate to the blog/post/or your background. Otherwise it would be confusing for the blogger when they go to your blog. The next thing I think is important is entertainment. Why I think so, is because people want entertainment and they want to enjoy learning and discovering things. Finally, the most important thing is SAFETY. If you put too much information(example: where you live, address, phone-number, privacy), you might be in danger. You might get hack on you account, or some people might pretend that they are you and do something bad.
When you want check if your criteria’s good these are the things you could do: For design, you could ask a friend/teacher,etc. what they think about your blog design. For entertainment, you can check your blog if you have any categories or anything that can make people entertain. And for safety, you could brainstorm the things that you could post on your blog which is safe(like the blog brainstorm).
In my conclusion, I will like to summarize what I wrote in this reflection shorty. So I have introduced what I’ve been doing during the 6 weeks on making a good blog. I think I did a good job explaining what I had learned so far about making a good blog, my research, because before this unit I didn’t know anything about blogging and making a good blog but when we did researches, now I know how to make a good blog! For the next unit, I will like to learn how people blog in a good way/bad way. I want to be better for my blog, by adding categories and such. The most things what I’m proud of learning was the blog research because I enjoyed researching other people’s blog and being inspired!
