This semester for me have had its ups and of course downs but I got through it. I learned a lot about myself this semester. I learned that I am a strong, driven young lady that really lives like the sky is the limit. Working full time and also being a full time student can come with its struggles to say the least but its how you overcome those obstacles that mold you into the stronger person you will become in the future.
I have did a lot of changing this year and changing my blog style was one of the biggest things I changed this semester. I have had this blog for a little over a year now so to say that I’ve grown attached would be a understatement. I never thought that I would change it, because I lived by that saying “if it ain’t broke don’t fix it!” While changing it made me feel better for some odd reason. I loved seeing my blog in a new light and it made me reflect on when I first started this blog and how my outlook was like then being a sophomore, compared to now and be becoming a senior.
I made my blog more conversational because I have became comfortable with myself and I no longer have the fear of being judged anymore. I now invite my audience to chat with me instead of holding the conversation alone. I feel as though this action makes me seem more genuine and I want my audience to feel that way about me as a publisher. I’ve learned that I should be more visual with my blog as an whole. By putting pictures in my blog entries it makes the post more interesting and by posting pictures of myself, brings the “audience to publisher” connection to life.
All in all I am thankful that I learned so much just in one semester. The skills and the knowledge that I have gained will stay with me for the rest of my life. And for that I am truly grateful.
