Well, I would say the first two weeks of wikis and weblogs was aptly named. I have to say though, I completely understand why this was necessary. Without that initial push into this new world of digital writing, I don’t think I would have learned nearly as much, or become nearly as confident in my ability to figure things out for myself in the world of wordpress.
This week I have learned more about the world of blogging than I ever thought I would. I look back at my first post Me in a Nutshell Which I wrote with with a lot of self doubt, to my post Been Trampled? which I created with relative ease and confidence and even added and linked YouTube videos to the post, and am amazed at how far I’ve come in only two weeks.
It hasn't been easy all the time to figure all out everything needed for the required assignments, and this week my computer basically went to crap, but I pressed on, and I have to admit I'm glad I did. The rest of this class is going to be a lot easier, and even enjoyable now that I have all of the skills I've learned this week under my belt. Along with having learned a ton of new things these past two weeks, I have also greatly enjoyed reading everyone else's posts. One of my favorite being this one from The Gist
