I have written 10 (or 11) blog posts since the last evaluation period. I have written 2 every week. I didn’t know that the purpose of the video was to have us speak in front of the camera so I asked Casey from the ORC to help me create that post. I posted 26 comments on other posts. My goal for this period was to write a little riskier posts to try to get conversations going. It seemed that I was a little late on trying this because I think that people got sick of commenting by the end of the semester. It was still a good learning experience to put my opinion out to the public. The religion one is a very controversial topic and I get the feeling that most of the people in our class don’t believe in anything at all so it was scary to put my beliefs on the line. I also had the writer of Dean’s Corner post on my blog!! I know that many others had many outside people posting on their blogs but I’m glad I got at least one outsider to find my post.
This was a good experience. I think we should’ve started reading the Don’t Be Such a Scientist earlier in the semester instead of some of the less useful readings that we did. I don’t like the writer because he has a little bit of an annoying style of writing but overall I think we can learn a lot from the book.
This class has probably been one of the most frustrating classes that I have taken so far but I hope that it’ll turn out to be a good “learning experience”. Although I don’t think I will ever blog about science, I might do it for my personal use. I’m glad I’ve learned what a blog is and how to set one up. Goodbye blog
