With the end of the spring semester near, it’s time for me to write my final post. Having a blog has definitely been quite an experience for me and I have to admit that I am glad my FDOM class required me to have one. I would have never known what Storify and Flickr were and probably would have never used them in the future but my opinion on a lot of things has changed. When we were first told that we had to keep a blog over the semester, my reaction was somewhat negative. I had never done a blog and had no intention of doing one in the future. After the first couple weeks, I realized that keeping a blog really wasn’t that hard and could be beneficial to me as a wedding planner. I like the idea of being able to share my thoughts, tips, and photos with other people and have them give me their opinions. When I do my internship this summer, I plan on keeping a blog because it’s a way to share my experiences with the world. I would have to say one of my favorite posts involved Storify and honeymoons. Being able to connect to all different social medias to create a story is pretty amazing. The ideas and thoughts that people posted really made my Storify unique and I enjoyed it.
Having to create a Twitter account for this class was also something I enjoyed. Before this class, I had never been on Twitter or knew anything about it. I was a Facebook person and that was really all the social media I used. Now I would say that I am on Twitter way more than Facebook and enjoy it just as much. I love that I have the ability to connect with famous people and friends in a different way. I also like that people can’t write a whole book on one tweet cause there is a limit. Overall, my experience with Twitter has been a positive one and has led me to use other social medias, such as Vine and Instagram.
Having a blog has been a great experience and I have learned so much. I appreciate all the people who have taken time to read my blogs and thoroughly enjoyed them. Like I said before, I plan on keeping another one when I do my internship this summer and hopefully I can use the things I learned in FDOM to make that one even better!
