In class reflection
I have never used a blog before or read a blog. I have heard that they are a helpful tool and can be used for both information and an outlet of emotion. Some people use their blogs to discuss personal events and feelings, others use it to comment about current events that occur in the worlds around them. It can be useful to both the reader and the writer. A blog can help someone process certain emotions and situations as well as inform those who read them and give incite into the author's perspective on the world. Blogs can determine what kind of person you are based on how willingly you display the intimate details of your life it is a personal blog. It can also show your interests if it is an informational blog and connect you to people with similar interests, creating personal connections. A person who blogs is someone who feels more comfortable expressing their interests and opinions through writing and behind a screen, rather than in person. It could be a sense of empowerment to be able to freely express your emotions or interests without the fear of confrontation or judgement. A blog could have a use for me. I often tend to keep my emotions bottled up and I believe it would be a good outlet for me, however I am not always comfortable sharing my opinions with others. I would be willing to attempt keeping a blog, but I am not entirely sure if I would keep it up.
