The Blog, the Twitter, and the Wiki-What I Learned in EL236

| | Comments (0)

This is a summary post of all the entries I have made thus far for my Writing for the Internet class. The main theme of my blog is Creative Writing, but I have one or two other blog posts mixed in. There's also a link to my Twitter. But before I go on, I'm going to list specific things I learned in this class:

1. Wikipedia is not evil er... I mean that even if some random person edits it, sooner or later the page is going to be corrected by someone who knows what he/she is doing.

2. Being a Twit isn't so bad or in other words... Twitter is a great place to keep up with things such as politics, fashion, media, etc. Oh and here's a link to my Twitter
