This is it, the last blog of the semester. So let’s have a bit of recap of how the semester has been and how it has gone.
This was the first blog I’ve ever consistently kept up with, and my experience has been that it was pretty good. It has been a pretty easy assignment but I feel neither here nor there about it. I do feel as if it has made me a better writer though, just because it has allowed me to put words on “paper” more often than if I had not blogged. I think that sometimes my writing fell to the wayside and was put off for longer than I would have liked to get it down, but that was mostly due to the fact that life gets out of control and it takes some time to get that control back and for life to even out. I felt that writing about something that interested or affected me made the experience much more enjoyable and easier to write about. Topics affected life and were easy to care about made the task of blogging much less difficult and menial. I am not really the kind of person that has too much going on outside of school and I don’t have a hobby would add up to a great difficulty in me having the content to fill a weekly blog, so I do not think that I will continue to blog at all. This said, I did enjoy the topic I blogged about and I achieved my stated goal in my first blog: I tied a monkey’s fist this weekend! I did not blog about it though, because I thought my topic of knots that would be useful over the summer months to be a more prudent topic so I hope at least some of you will get something out of those blogs.
Blogging was an interesting assignment, and it gave me an opportunity to read others blogs too. But I cannot say that I think that blogging would be a viable form of modern conversation. I do think that it is a good tool for proliferation of information. I am a firm believer that the only medium of interpersonal interaction, as far as things of a personal nature go, should be air, meaning that dealings are best when done face to face and in person. So thankfully if you think that I’m a crazy codger this means this is the last time you’ll have to read about my opinions. If you didn’t mind me I appreciate your putting up with me. Good luck.
