With only a few weeks left in the semester, we were asked what our plans were for our blog’s future. When I was first told about using a blog for this class, I wasn’t too excited about it. But over the course of the semester, I have grown to like it more and more. I plan keep my blog rather than deleting it. But I don’t think I will continue to post to it.
The benefits of keeping the blog is that when future employers do a Google search for my name, something other than my many social media accounts will come up. It also shows off some of my skills that I have learned in this class that can verify information on my resume and maybe even impress them. That being said, while I’m proud of most of my project, I do believe that some of them don’t reflect my true ability, such as my Photoshop project.
The same thing goes for networking. I’ve already had people outside of this class “like” or comment on my blog. Just today I had two hits from India, which I thought was pretty cool. While these people currently looking at my blog
are probably not professionals, its possible that they could find my blog too.
Overall, I think blogging has been a good experience for me. Some of the jobs I looked at for the Tech in Career assignment even listed WordPress as a desired skill.
