My Blog Project

Hey everyone,

So I originally started my project by doing a Twitter page, where I tweeted about different kind of music as well as music news and basically anything related to music entertainment. Needless to say it wasn't very popular or that fun to maintain and after about a week and a half of very few followers, eventually turning in to none I simply abandoned it.

After that I started a blog and it was quite different and a way more fulfilling experience. Feel free to check it out at,

The blog was a really cool outlet for me to share my insights with strangers, friends, and family. They are very fun outlets and public journals where the audience is actively participates in what you are writing and can  really connect the readers directly to the author.

Although my blog was not as successful or even professional as the majority of other blogs out there in the ever expanding world wide web, the lessons I learned were valuable enough. First things first is consistency is King. In order to maintain and keep followers you need to make blogging a hobby. The hardest thing about blogging is finding or even carving a chunk of my time out of the day to sit down and write something.

With that comes content which is a very close second King. Coming up with content is very tricky, but the easiest way for me was to just keep a journal and write down ideas that came to mind. My entire blog was basically wacky insights to things I noticed in life, with the sole goal to get a chuckle out of my readers. In the end I only had three followers which still makes me pretty happy, but I definitely want more. Through the whole experience I plan to continue blogging and to be more efficient at it. Winter Break is right around the corner so who know the possibilities. Thanks for reading and for those who checked the blog out this semester. All in all it was a good time.

Thanks for the love and good luck with the rest of your semesters :)



  1. I checked your blog and it looks really good, you did a great job. I'm glad you had a good experience with your project. I agree with you, having a blog does involve spending quite a bit of time to build it, coming up with the topics and making the posts.

  2. I did a blog for the SM project, as well. I agree that it was very difficult but a great learning experience.
