We are each 'designers' for our own blog, and I found this 29 tips really gave me a creative guideline for my blog.
When I look back at this guide now, I feel I've done quite well in 'designing' my blog. A lot of people told me that the style of my blog, the writing, the posts, the appearance is really 'Scott'! Take that as a compliment
What did I do well?
I tried to keep up with my blog posts. Sometimes, I get a little bit behind with writing the posts, but I always have a note to collect ideas and stuffs that interest/inspire me so when I have time I would write them up. In terms of the content, I'm not a fan of writing long blogs, instead I enjoy sharing clips and images with a just a few line expressing my thoughts. I'm happy with the way that my blog turned out and I believe I had created a easy to read (entertaining) blog
What could I have learnt better?
I've learnt/gain a lot from blogging and this course, but I wish that I could learn more HTML codings beyond the basics, so we could have more tools and configuration while making the hypertext essay. However, friends always help too! Whenever I came across any difficulties I would always seek answers from my peers like (Rosa). By asking questions and googling, I ended up getting more and more confident with coding. But more knowledge would be nice!
What could I have done better?
There are still a lot of ideas that's not written or published posts. It will be nice if I could train myself to be able to blog without delay. So whenever I come across interesting blog materials, instead of collecting them in my notes, I could perhaps just write about them. So fresh ideas... can be freshly written! (But then, of course, I could develop my ideas more if I have the delays. Sometimes I have the words but not the image, and it often takes me longer to discover the visuals than capturing the thoughts. So I guess, this is a point that I can experiment in the future.) I feel that my blogging is really dependant on my mood. I could write a blog entries for hours or in a few minuets, all depend on my mood - the "Burping mood!" Maybe I should train myself to get into my burping mood more often and faster!
Overall, my interest in blogging has certainly grown through out the course and I believe and hope that there is the sense of development and growth in my blogging. This had been a great experience and I hope the experience won't just end here!
