For the social media project, I chose to set up a Blog Spot using www.blogger.com. My Blog Spot address is http://thejriesbergzone.blogspot.com/. I found it to be very useful, where I posted different activities and subjects that we had covered in our E-Commerce marketing class over the previous months. Creating and using the Blog Spot seemed to be more personalized than Facebook, and it would be good for posting information and pictures about myself and would be good for people to follow me like family members, friends or co-workers. My sister has a very nice Blog Spot that she uses to update people on things her and the family have been up to, along with many pictures of the baby girls as they continue to get older. The Blog Spot is also useful if you are searching for a post or picture from a certain time period, documenting blog posts by month and year on the right side of the page. I also like the feature of being able to monitor and see who is following your Blog and linking to other followers Blogs. I will continue to use my Blog Spot page, changing the information from the E-Commerce subject to a more personalized page with info about myself and pictures. This project was beneficial in helping me learn more about Blogging and how I can use it to publish information about myself or whatever subject matter I want people to see.
