Semester Projects 2011

Final Project

Choice of the Week

 

My semester project has been to create a blog called “Choice of the Week”. The blog has, as it name states, been a place where I have posted my choice of what I have thought has been the best of the week, in different categories. The different categories on the blog has been as follows: song, quote, picture, and video. The different posts are presented and explained with my take on them. In my explanations I include why the picture, song, quote, etc. meant something to me and why I liked it.

I started of my blog with an explanation of why I was doing this blog and what I wanted it to include. I did also write in the blog that I wanted to e anonymous. This, because I felt like I would be more comfortable expressing my true opinions on the content I posted. I further point out that what I will be writing about are my opinions and that I hope people will not be offended by the content I write.

Why I decided to do a blog like this for my semester project is probably because I felt it was a good way to express some of the content that interests and inspires me. I have a great interest for music and other creative works like pictures. What my blog expresses is pretty much a description of me, and what I stand for, in terms of interests. Most of the music that I have posted is not a style that many people hare in the U.S can understand and appreciate, but to me, it gives me inspiration.

Because of the theme of the class, and the projects goal, my blog is completely divergent. I have not seen any blog like it and I think that the blog is kind of unique because of its variety. Then again, I am not very into the whole blog-world and I am not planning to get more involved then I already am.

The goal for this blog has not been to gat as many followers or viewers as possible. Yes, I have been asking some questions on the blog and referred to other blogs, but it has never been my intention to write this blog for other to read it. What I am posting on the blog are just my opinions and if people like what I write they are welcomed to read, but I am not going to promote my blog like there was I need for me to express my thoughts. Even though I have not been promoting the blog in any way (not even to class members or friends) I still have about 10 views a day. This feels weird and a little embarrassing and makes me a little uncomfortable. My plan right now is to continue with the blog for as long as I feel that I am gaining something from it. Right now it works as a way to express my thoughts and I hope that it will keep doing that. It has been a fun project and an interesting class. My research paper has really had an affect on me, and I guess that is somewhat the point when writing about something that really interests you.
