This semester, as everyone probably knows by now, I used my blogging as a way to sort of vent during a very stressful semester (I had several people always ask what I was blogging when Dr. Jerz would comment on my blogs in class). Although I wish I wouldn't want to have another semester like this past one, I guess it did spark interest for people to start reading my blogs. Not exactly what I intended or wanted, but hey, whatever.
I think I've kept up better with these last few weeks of blogging. I tried to post as many of mine on time as possible. I also tried to put more thought and content into my responses and my own blogs. I noticed that others started leaving more content in their blogs and responses as well. The discussions I had through blogging were interesting, especially while we were reading "Ender's Game" and "Wit".
Although I am thankful to finally have the semester end, there are several things I did learn from this class that had an impact on me. I loved learning about how to get started with writing and trying to get published. I liked working on the professional portfolio. It really made me think about what I needed to do to add to my resume and see what I can accomplish while here at Seton Hill.
The step through step process of the research paper was also very helpful, but I wish we had more time for it. It seems we were all rushed at the end. I thought the group informal presentations were a great idea, but I think this whole process should have started earlier in the course so we could have spent some time reviewing each others finished papers or at least rough drafts.
Overall, this course had both its frustrating and helpful points but I did learn alot that will help with my future English classes.
