Having taken this course, I've become much more open to various types of media. Initially, I was pretty clueless when it came to websites such as Myspace or Facebook. I barely knew how to upload pictures or post eye catching blogs. I have realized that it is more than text content that will make a blog successful in attracting readers, but it is also the photos and links that can bring more viewers to a blog. Not only was I ignorant to these forms of media, but I also didn't care to find out until I've gotten the hang of how things work. I've been so stuck on my traditional ways of communication that I was oblivious to the possible ways of communicating. Unlike, Myspace blogs, on the other hand, have a few more features that I hadn't even considered using let alone write in until now. I almost feel as if this will eventually feel like an essential method of communicating thoughts, feelings, beliefs, without directly being identified. I feel as if writing on sites give a person more room to fully express themselves without being interrupted, judged on the spot, and pressured by the various counter arguments someone may have on a belief. Reading forces a person to listen to what is said, and this method is the best advance to be made in communication.

Where is your MySpace URL? You hinted that you have a MS site, but you didn't actually say so. If you've been using MS, what do you think are the differences between it and a "real" blog? (No, MySpace is not a real blog. It is training wheels for kids. Nothing wrong with that, just for fun, but a real blog is something that will impress your prospective employer when you go looking for a job. Your MySpace site will not.)
