4 blog posts which are different and unique but fantastic in their own ways;
These blogs have really inspired me to do some more work here on my blog and to allow my work to vary. From reading these blogs it occurred to me that they aren’t all TDT’s but they’re posts about topics which have arose in lectures or posts on interesting topics which have came from social media. Yes some are TDT’s but they’re not just answering the question which is proposed to us, they’re posts which explore the question linking wider reading and personal thoughts and feelings. I have noticed when reflecting on my own blog posts that I do not do a lot of this. I feel personally that I could put a lot more work into my blog I just need to alter the way I’m currently posting. Personally it takes me a very long time when working on a post, time which I usually spend doing written work and reading, often I forget about my blog when doing other work. As I am someone who writes with pen and paper, all my TDT’s are done in my notebook where I link the pages together with my notes I’ve written from books I’ve read. However I’ve realised that my blog posts do not have to be big essay like posts which are all TDT’s. I always new I could write about any news articles or videos I watch which link with anything in this course or if something arose which I found interesting and others may find interesting however I was never confident enough to post my opinions on topics which weren’t TDT’s. I am now going to attempt to build my confidence with writing more posts on varying topics which I find interesting and important. I have also realised that I do not have to wait until I’ve fully formed my view on a topic. I can have multiple posts which link together showing my journey through the topic, this would ensure I’m reflecting on my progress as I can have an overall post which reflects back on my first thought and feeling of an area and where it has developed to. I’m setting personal goals for myself and for this blog in my diary which I can work towards and ensure I’m taking the opportunity to use my blog to advance my overall confidence and competence.
Here is a video which I related to a lot and have given me a few ideas which I can use to help me with this blog. Some of these tips don’t relate to this blog but others really do and have helped me greatly.
