Since our blog assignment has come to an end, it’s time to review what I’ve learned and enjoyed about this type of work. Honestly, when I first found out we were going to make a blog, I was expecting to hate it. Having to write many posts about the different categories in a book seemed tedious and too demanding, but it has actually been quite amusing. Although we had deadlines and were given tasks, this assignment felt pretty casual. Reading a chosen book and writing on a blog feels more relaxing than doing any work from a textbook. Since we chose the book ourselves, everyone probably chose one they’re interested in, making the tasks more easy to complete. Every task we were given was also relevant to the report/analysis, so everything we’ve done here will definitely help while writing that. Working with a book like this was creative and productive, and I really enjoyed it.
This assignment has definitely helped me become more observant over what I read. We got the tasks around one week before the deadline, so I had to be critical over everything I read since I had no idea what the next task might be.
The fact than anyone in class would be able to read my blog, made me work a little harder on every task than I probably would if it was just a handed-in homework. Reading the others’ blogs was also a great way to learn. Maybe they introduced each task in a good way, had an interesting thought process or had smart word use, whatever it was, it was definitely helpful. It was interesting to see their writing technique and what skill level they’re at. The comments was also very nice to receive. They weren’t that constructive, but they were definitely heart warming.
Thanks for reading my blog and good luck with your report/analysis!
