Portfolio 2

When looking back to my first portfolio for this class, I've noticed some areas of growth. For the most part, my blog entries really aren't that much different. The main things I've noticed are as follows: my comments on others' blogs are often more productive and I have begun to participate in discussions on my own blogs. I have grown a lot in these two areas.

Wildcard (the blog entry that I feel is the best one):
~Ultimate Sacrifice
I chose this entry, because it is the one that I feel I went the most in depth with. Most of the other ones, I went more in depth with my comments after the fact than in the actual entry. Overall, I just think that this is the best agenda item I wrote this time around.
