Honorable mention to this one ( https://haileyhoover.wordpress.com/2017/11/02/internet-career/ ) because I got a quality amount of likes from people outside of our class. So I appreciate the support from random strangers and I felt I would throw this out there.
For starters, I believe these are my best blog posts because they were the most creative. I feel like I took the topic of the readings from that week and put a more personal spin on them. I also think that the topics that I wrote about in each of them fit in well with the overall theme and aesthetic of my blog. I was going for a girly and trendy vibe and the first blog post was centered around clothing, the second discusses Instagram likes, and the third was about the ‘beauty gurus’ of YouTube. By having the posts talk about something not as direct as the readings it makes it more entertaining for people to read. It is more fun to read about something that isn’t something that resembles a lecture.
All the posts mentioned have brought in quotes from the in class readings from that week. I believe that those quotes were brought in strongly to support the overall argument that I set out to make.
They also all bring in other sources to bring something different to the post. They each bring in a different type of outside source. The first post has another article from the internet. The next post took posts from mine and my sister’s Instagram accounts to drive home the argument of likes and internet popularity surrounding anxiety. The final post had links to YouTube videos and accounts of people that use the internet as their source of income.
Each of these posts I believe had a solid amount of discussion from classmates. I believe that the posts were strong enough that people could formulate a good response to it. This goes to show how good the post was, to spark interest from other people.
One of the key traits that we discussed for a good blog was that the tone was very casual and not presented in a serious educational way. I believe that my posts do a nice job of this. As the term went on I got better about making the posts flow like a conversation. They were presented in a lowkey fashion.
Bottom line I think these posts are the strongest because they are the most entertaining. I am the most proud of these in terms of subject matter, style etc. They fit in with the blog well and relatively fit in with each other. I have a variety of different sources attached to them whether they be pictures or quotes from in class readings and other readings, and videos. It is also cool to see how the posts have progressed since the inspo post was my second post and the Internet Career one was my last post. Blogging as we have learned can be fun way to have a more exciting spin on spreading information. I believe that they posts do the best job of presenting information to the class in a fun way. I also think that a strong feature of my blog and these posts are that they are very personal to me. Through the subjects of them you can tell a lot about me I think. Especially in the post that talks about my sister. I think that I have done a nice job of really putting myself into the different elements on my blog.
