This was my first-time blogging, ever. I used to keep a journal to write my random ideas and thoughts into but for some reason I felt like I outgrew that part in my life. My parents purchased diaries for me as a girl, but I always used them for other purposes.
How do I feel about blogging?
Well at first, I was apprehensive because I did not know what I was going to blog about. I would not have started blogging if it wasn’t for a grade. I did not think that I had anything interesting or worth talking about to blog. Before I began my blogging journey, I read blogs on WordPress to see what blogging was all about. I read blogs from all kinds of point of views. I started to see that blogging was just a virtual journal of thoughts, that could potentially make someone’s day or help someone that is having a hard time with the same things.
Will I continue to blog?
Yes!! As I am attempting to type this reflection, I get a text from a friend and it sort of puts me in my feelings. I want to be that strong supportive friend. That friend that listens and gives advice the way I would want it given to me.
I wish that I started blogging when it was first introduced to me. I could have a million-blog post by now with all of the random thoughts that I have throughout the day. I could blog daily about how work has been. Working in childcare, your days are different from one another. My job has a blog station online where certain teachers get on to talk to a group of people to help make their situation better.
I would have to admit that I took this class for a joke in the beginning. I thought that me blogging would be easy! It is actually hard work. You have to make sure that what you are blogging about is catching the audience attention. All of my post was thought out prior to typing them. I wanted to make sure that I was able to capture someone in the audience with my blogs. I often times had people to like my post or to comment on them. This made me feel accomplished! I did not know what I was doing so I began to talk about my personal life. I pretended that the audience was a parent or a best friend. Someone that I was close to and that cared for what I had to say. This made me comfortable to talk about certain topics on my blog. I am not sure if people are able to feel the emotion behind my blogs but typing them, I definitely had some tears to fall down my face. I added real pictures of my family. I seriously let people into my daily life with the post “Super Mom or Super Crazy.” That has to be the most powerful post because it is something that I deal with on a daily basis.
I hope that you have enjoyed reading and following my blog post. I plan on continuing but it will be in my leisure this time and not for a grade!
