It seems this will be my last post for this class. It has been fun and very educational. And I will miss doing research for this blog. I enjoy learning new things as well as the research that goes into. My life has been so crazy that I don’t get to do things like this for fun on my MySpace blog anymore. And with having three other blogs (on MySpace) to maintain as well as a CafeMom journal, I don’t see this site living on past this class. I hope anyone who has come this blog has enjoyed it and hopefully leaned a little to in the process.
And now to answer my last blog project questions:
- How did actively participating in online research and journalism through blogging affect you?
It was fun and a learning process at the same time. I never really looked at other types of blogs or cared before. Also, it was interesting to learn about E-Zines, newsgroups and the like.
2. Do you feel this project was worthwhile as learning tool in this class? Why or why not?
I definitely think it is a great learning tool. In this day and age, most people are on the Internet for everything. I use it to look up things, research places and items. And I use it for all my news (with the exception of all the fires we had last week.)
3. Looking back on your ratings and your research, what is your final thesis statement? Did it change from your initial statement?
My final thesis statement stays the same, “I believe blogging has significantly impacted the print journalism industry”. Not only from the things I learned for this project, but what I have learned about in other classes and my own personal experience.
