Now that the semester draws to a close, so must my blog. I’ve had a fantastic time with this assignment. I didn’t think I would enjoy writing a blog all semester, but I loved the entire process of cultivating all the fun, creative ideas to post about; interviewing and video editing; app building; and leveraging social media to bring readers to the blog.
I didn’t promote my posts on social media as much as I should have, and I would like to have done a better job of promoting to bring more readers on the blog. When I did promote a post, leveraging the number of followers on my Twitter, Facebook and Instagram worked very well to grab people’s attention.
My experience writing this blog not only helped advance my technical writing skills, but also challenged me to post creative, outside-the-box content which readers could relate to and enjoy. In addition, most employers in today’s media landscape are looking for fresh graduates with a proven track record, who have a tangible portfolio to present during an interview. This blog is definitely something that I would show to an employer if I was applying to an advertising agency because it shows off my competence in writing, creativity and technical media skills.
So this is it- the end. Have a fantastic summer, thanks for reading all semester!
