During this 6 weeks, we worked on 3 things. The first one is our Blog Brainstorm. The second one is the Blog Research. The third one is the Learning about Word Press. These things were important to learn to know what to post, and how we can make it look good with our own ideas. I learned from this unit that if we don’t know about the basics and know how to find out the important facts, we can’t make a good blog.
When I did the brainstorm, I thought that if we don’t have an idea of what we are supposed to write, it will take a long time. Now I have lots of option to choose on writing and don’t have to take a long time since I have ideas. When I did the blog research, I have learned that we should have pictures (the pictures need to stay on the topic) to get attention of our readers. Also, we need to have good designs and fonts, and need to be organized to get the readers attention. When I finished working on it, I know a lot about what makes a good blog and learned to look at other people’s blog with my own perspective. This way, I can make a better blog. At last, when we did the learning about word press, I learned that if we don’t know about each section and how to organize things. For example, without adding tags and categories, we can’t organize our blog. That means that our blog won’t look good, but now, I can work on my blog proudly. Also, I learned that if our readers want to look at the post again and they can’t find it, they will give up and look at other people’s blog. That will be a bad thing!
The most three important criteria to me is safety, organization, and writing. I think safety is important because if you write about your personal stuff, someone might act as you or something bad might occur. That means you can’t put your whole name, telephone number, address and other dangerous information. I also think organization is important because if your blog is not organized, it will look messy. As I mentioned before, if it is messy, someone who wants to look at the same post they saw before won’t be able to find it. Finally, I think writing is important because if you don’t have good grammar, punctuation, and spelling, the readers won’t know what you’re trying to say. So they won’t read it. That means the reader will think you have bad english, so they won’t access to your blog since they don’t know what you’re saying. If I would add one more criteria that is important, I would include design too. The reason for that is that if you have good design(that includes background, color and fonts etc…) the blog will catch the reader’s eyes and they will check your blog.
When you want to check if you have made your criteria well, you can do these things. For instance, for safety, you can check by thinking to yourself if you can say this to people that you don’t know, or bad people. As for organization, you have to make sure to post in the appropriate category. In writing, you can check your writing again and again to check if your blog has good grammar, spelling, and punctuation. If you’re not confident of your english skills, you can ask your friend or teacher to check.
My conclusion is that I mostly felt that I am proud of my work. For example, I really liked my brainstorm. Also, at first I didn’t like my blog research but when I changed it little by little to add details, I became confident on my work. For the next unit, I want to learn how technology can affect people in a good way and a bad way. I want to be better in writing posts that take the readers’ attention. I liked working on learning about word press sheet the most because I like to discover things that relate to technology and communication. Also, I learned about what we could do on our posts and blog. When I summarize what I wanted to say on this post, I liked everything and I slowly am getting knowledgeable on technology and blogs.
