So, as the only people who read this blog, the other students in my english class know that this blog started as an assignment. And, if anybody was like me, they really dreaded doing the damn thing. However, we all worked very hard in the beginning of the semester out of fear of failing this class. A lot of the blogs were done early on in the week, and we definitely did all the posts we were supposed to; not just one.

As the semester has progressed though, the blogs have slowed down. It started as something as simple as waiting a little closer to the due date to start either blog and has now gone to waiting until THE very last moment to post blogs. I've definitely noticed a decline in the number people post in a week too.

So, what am I getting at?? I hope that I will still have blogs to read from these people after this class is over. I've learned  a lot from the people whose blogs I have read consistently over the past 12 or 13 weeks.And because of this I will continue to look forward to their blog every week.

I've loved this experience. Like I said, i was dreading it in the beginning. As time has gone on though I've read so many blogs from so many different people to learn about blogging. I love so many blogs outside of what I read for this class. They all have made me want to become a better blogger. I want to become better and gain many many more readers. This is slowly going to become my passion.

I hope that at least some of my classmates feel the same way and continue with their blogging experience. We can share tips we learn about this craft with each other. I want to make sure I have somebody out there that has no idea what they're really doing either.

So readers, are you planning on continuing?? Did this change your mind just a little?? I know that in blogger you have the option to start multiple blogs at the same time. If it turns out you want to continue and feel like you want something else, you have the option to start over. Could this be for you??

Feel free to share....And All That Good Stuff

I've noticed the same with the declining number of blogs and them showing up later and later in the week. I feel bad if I get mine up any later than Wednesday & make darn sure I get both up and that they're both at least 500 words (I know a couple of mine have been way too long)
I can't say for sure if I'll continue this blog after the class, I'm an avid reader of more than a few blogs and haven't decided if I'm going to continue writing at this point. Good luck to you, you never know, you might be able to make a career or side job out of blogging. :)

I think I'll probably continue blogging. It's nice to get my thoughts out in the open. I agree, this experience has been awesome! I think people are getting busy and forgetting or they are starting to care less.

I've had a bit of fun with the assignment but find it difficult to do at times. Most weeks nothing interesting happens in my life and since I don't watch/read the news, it is difficult to keep up with. I can only write about my dogs and my bro's kids so many times! LOL! I do like the idea of having a place to rant about my week and look back to see what happened.

I really like blogging at times, but like they said above, sometimes nothing happens interesting in my life and I DEFINITELY DON'T keep up on the news. So.. it is kind of annoying to search for things to talk about but I actually end up learning something, which is the point of this, right? So, that's good. I feel that I may continue to blog after the class, but I know for sure that I won't be keeping up every week. I barely have time as it is! But I am proud to say that I have kept up with every week, two blogs and two comments, sometimes three:) My blogs are usually pretty long too because I rant. But Great post! Hopefully you can continue to blog!

I would have to say that the bloggs slowed down as well mostly due to nice weather hahah.
