Detailed Revision Explanation

I have revised my reading summary 5. I have done this by adding onto the post to make the word length more acceptable, since my first edition was way too short. I went into a large amount of additional detail, as well as adding in some multimedia.

The photograph I added represents the article well and enhances the points I was able to make in my summary.  I cited the photograph as well as writing an explanation below the picture of what it was and how it related to my summary.

In addition, I added images and application of concepts to the categories as well as reading summary. I also added colors, image, creativity, unique, beauty, refreshed, and discovery onto the tags. This helps define my post before opening and reading it, as well as helping people navigate my blog.

After completing the survey, I realized that I could have incorporated way more multimedia aspects into my writing. Being so used to a traditional English class, doing so was out of my comfort zone and I never pushed myself as far as I was capable of going. I will definitely be using more of those aspects in my future work.

Mid-term Reflection

This class is very different from any other English class I’ve ever taken because there is very little instruction and help for each assignment. This gives me an opportunity to be more creative in my assignments as there is less guidelines to follow. When I am writing, I feel as if I have a larger audience because I am posting my final product online as a blog post, which has the potential to reach a larger audience compared to handing in a hard copy of an essay to my professors. This has led me to broaden my horizons to relate to a larger, more diverse audience, instead of just a room of my classmates and professor.

As a writer, I believe I have a very strong vocabulary. Often while writing, I will get off task and not be completely focused on answering the prompt throughout my piece, adding in unnecessary sentences that I could do without. I have been quite behind with this class because of my busy schedule and coming down with mononucleosis, but I plan to complete the extra credit quizzes soon to earn extra points to my grade. I definitely have the potential to put out better quality work in this class. I plan to manage my time more efficiently in order to do that.

In my future work, I plan to have more diverse work, such as using different types of media and types of writing in order to not just used all standard essay format like I am writing in right now. I think implementing everything stated above will bring in higher quality work from me that I can be proud of.
