When I first found out that we were going to start writing blog posts, I thought that it was going to be pretty easy. I’ve seen blog posts on the internet, and to be honest they look pretty easy to write. In order to get an understanding of what our blog was going to look like, we looked at past student blog models. Each student in the class was assigned a number, and they had to look at the student blog that corresponded with that number.
As I was reading the blog that I was assigned, I realized that writing a blog post about what you learned and using specific evidence to back up what you are saying isn’t as easy as I had originally thought it was, especially when you have to keep it under 400 words. The blog that I had looked at was very organized with a title, date, and picture which made it really easy to follow. It also had a blog archive which I thought was really neat so that you wouldn’t have to keep scrolling if you were looking for a blog post that was published during a specific month. There are a lot of different things you should consider when writing a blog post. For instance, you should consider having a title that will interest the reader and one that also connects to your blog post. That is one of the many different “Blog To-do’s” that my class had created. In my opinion, I think one of the main things that you should consider when writing for a blog is to make what you’re saying not sound like you’re answering questions, but more like if you are having a conversation with whoever is reading your blog post. I have a friend who has her own personal blog and since we have to start writing our own blog posts, I think that if I do get stuck while writing, I’ll go look at her blog for some inspiration. Even though her blog is personal and mine has to do with what I am learning, I do think that I will be able to learn from her and apply what I see on her blog onto my own.
