Why blog?

13 Nov

Our teacher gave us these questions about the blog:

Do you think there is more pressure on how you perform/write when you use blogs instead of writing a paper for the teacher only?

I think that the pressure gets higher when you write on your blog. The fact that you know that strangers can read your posts and not just your teacher makes the strive for perfection even higher. It’s kind of embarrassing if you write something wrong on your blog because you know that many people are going to read it. It also gives you a lot of motivation when you see that you get a lot of hits on your blog.

Do you think the use of blogs reduces the difference between your work at school and your everyday life? 

I think the use of blog reduces the difference between school and work. The fact that you have to write something that everyone can see is more like a work situation. This will of course be different from person to person and the effort you choose to put into your blog. I think that we are learning a lot by writing our blogs and I think that we are learning a lot without even knowing it. Maybe one day in a few years the reason behind these blogs will hit us and it will be a bit clearer why we write them. I also thinks that it has an effect on our everyday life because we can write about it. When we get the chance we can also write about things that interests us.
