Now that our blogging for this class has come to an end, it’s time to reflect on my best blog posts.
One of my strongest posts is Sick Dance Moves. This post actually made it to be a Post of the Week! In this blog, I made sure I was using a lively voice and tried to use a less formal voice and writing style. I connected the topic of this post, viral dances, to our readings on what makes stories go viral. I also tried to use a catchy title that played on the viral aspect of dance videos. I made good use of lists which are easier for the audience to read and focus on the main points. This was also one of my more focused blogs where I stayed on topic throughout the entire blog unlike other posts I made. The media I used of the video and picture related well to the blog topic and encouraged discussion. At the end of this blog, I made sure to ask questions to the audience to encourage more discussion.
My second strongest post is Reliability and Equality in Wikipedia. This is one of my posts with the most comments. In this post, I made use of the Wikipedia article we read that week as well as our work with infographics. The infographic was a good visual to use to hold the viewer’s attention as well as provide information about the topic. I tried to incorporate links in this blog similar to Wikipedia articles. I made discussion with the audience and tried to be relatable. I used quotes from the readings that added to the topic of whether Wikipedia was reliable or was equal. Similar to my other blog, I continued to ask questions at the end to encourage discussion.
Overall, I have enjoyed the experience of writing blogs and might write more in the future!
