I love reading blogs. I love looking at them, I love writing them, I love how it feels to press publish. They are so personal and customizable I simply cannot help but to enjoy the creative process in this way. One of my favorite ways to learn about anything is by observing the work of talented individuals and this week in multimedia we get to critique our classmates!
Overall, I love getting to know my fellow 2150 friends this way. I feel like I learned a ton from them.
First I read Gaby’s blog. I was amazed at how much her voice, personality, and confidence shine through her blog. She is incredibly talented and has clearly done this for quite some time. The design was very colorful and full of pictures. I will definitely be borrowing some of her personal touches and making mine that much more personal to me.
Next I read Maddie’s blog. Her titles were so. dang. funny, y’all. I sit next to her in class every day and it was fantastic to see her sense of humor shine through this medium as well. The writing was constructed beautifully as well.
Lastly I read Kayla’s blog. Can I just say first off her selections for picture of the year were phenomenal?? Some of the most compelling images I’ve ever seen. I think her artistic eye is a treasure for the community.
Overall, I would encourage my classmates to customize their blogs a bit further. Their titles are all their names and it would be fun to add a bit more personality there. I also think an about me section could really strengthen their already interesting blogs. Thanks for the lessons, ladies
