I put my hands up and admit that over the assignment and Christmas break period I started lagging behind on posting in my ePortfolio. However, we were encouraged to read and reflect on our fellow students posts. I feel like this really gave me the push of encouragement I needed to get back into the swing of posting, commenting and reflecting. After reading my peers’ posts I noticed that each post was written in a way which provided a great amount of depth on the topic of the post. In many cases the posts were written in such a detailed way that even as a reader you could get a vast amount of knowledge and information out of it. On the more visual aspect, I noticed that a variety of media such as images, videos and hyperlinks had been used which I feel made the posts even more intriguing and interesting as it provided a visual aspect. I feel that the hyperlinks were particularly helpful as they gave me the opportunity to read up further on the issues raised within the posts.
After reading everyone’s posts it as given me a lot of information on how I can improve my own posts and what I can add in to increase the interest of my posts. I also noticed that a lot of the posts I read were on topics which the writer found interesting and relevant and were not necessarily TDT posts. This has inspired me to put forward my own opinions on topical issues in my own blogposts.
