Hello Followers,bloggingimagesCATPVC3D

As you may know that I am a student at southern Vermont College, that was taking a course called Social Media and Digital class. During this course, I have made this wonderful blog that you are seeing now, and I just wanted to tell you what I learned from blogging. To be 100% honest with you, I first didn’t understand what blogging meant, because it just seemed so broad. The only thing I knew about blogging was people expressing their feelings on their favorite topic and write about it, to show the world. It’s sort of like a small diary, but its in the public.

Here are some things that I learned about blogging.

  • Think of a great topic title
  • Have to maintain your blog to the topic of your blog, or the point of the website
  • Keeping up with posts  (every week at least have one post)
  • Learing how to write formally instead of how I would write in a journal or diary
  • Asking questions to my followers about the topic
  • Getting my blog out there to the public, (by email, facebook, twitter, instagram, etc)
  • Try to intrigue my followers,  ( don’t want to lose my followers) keep in touch

Those are some of the things I learned about blogging.

Let’s just say it wasn’t easy or hard, but it was medium level. I defintely want to keep my blogging site, since I took so much time into it.

My favorite blog that I wrote, would have to be The Civil Disobedience post. I had to do a lot of researching, but I also enjoyed that one the most. I also got the most responses out of it. I enjoyed writing all my blogs, and yes, it can be a little repetitive one some of them.

My goal for this blog, was to help people understand what social media is and what it can do.  Our generation is so strong about technology, that we sometimes forget how to pick up a book, or spent time with your friends, like the olden days.

Just remember, to not ALWAYS go on Facebook, Twitter , etc, when you are with your friends or family time. You can go on online when your free and bored. Remember, everyone has a voice and they want to listen to it, that’s why we have tongues. For the older generation, if you have kids or going to have kids in the future, please show them how to have fun without the internet. There are so many ways to communicate besides internet, or texting. Be safe and don’t text and drive, because a text can wait.

To sum it all up, I hope I helped you understand what social media is.  As again, if you want me tow rite anything else about the social media life, I will glady help you. I enjoyed writing my blogs, and I will continue writing them. Happy Holidays!!!

THANK YOU!!!! KEEP FOLLOWING ME!!!

First Post: The things Social Media Can Do To People

Published September 25, 2013 by jewing27

computer-clipart[1] My meaning of Social Media is a website that connects with people over multiple networks. There are plenty of networks out there, such as: Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and Instagram. Facebook is the world’s most popular social networking website, Twitter is a self posting status updates, Tumblr is a well-known blog and Instagram is people sharing photos and videos. All of these websites are all well –known and are growing higher and higher to our social life as of today.

I read an article named “what’s wrong with the modern world” by Jonathan Franzen and he has lots of pros and cons about what social media is doing to our world. One of my cons about his article is that he didn’t really relate to a certain age and the location (where) social media was hitting the most. I am arguing about this because not everyone has a Facebook, Twitter, etc, or even internet. Also, my grandma doesn’t have any accounts related to social media besides e-mail, so Jonathan is a little wrong about that fact. My positive agreement about his article is that I do think social media is sort of ruining our social lives and behavioral issues. Jonathan has great points and views about how he feels, but as again I feel like he over-reacting.

Did you know that Social Media is ruining our lives slowly? Do you agree with this question? I went researching and I found an article that social media can slowly ruin our behavior towards life. The article is called “Is Social media ruining your life?” by Ernest Ward Jr. DVM. This man is my hero, I say this because he actually set rules to his social networking to regular lifestyle. For example, he doesn’t go on Facebook, Twitter, or even texting after 9pm because that’s how he was raised and he doesn’t want to get attached to a computer screen or a phone screen. He actually enjoys talking with friends person to person and doing fun activities instead of reading screens all day about your friends. One thing that he enjoys is eating dinner with his family and not taking out their phones during a meal time. I agree with him because people don’t need to be on phones and networking every minute of their lives. You were born to do things without the computer, and everyone has talents and do it.  

In the world of today, there are people who are addicted to social networking, such as Facebook. I read an article named, Twitter and Facebook ‘addicts’ suffer withdrawal symptoms by Mathew Sparkes. This article is about students doing a study on people being addicted to Twitter and Facebook and then they were asked to stop using the network for four weeks.There is a really good expression about people being addicted to social media and it is called “Cut off from the world” and that means you are isolated from friends and family. There were studies that there was a girl who didn’t even communicate to her family all week because her social media was way more important than spending time with her family. I think that is really sad because you need to get off social media and live your regular life as well. Social media isn’t everything and it can’t do lifestyle things. There was a woman in Germany that didn’t go on Facebook for a week, and she was catching up with her chores, homework, spending time with her daughter and her husband. I think addicts shouldn’t have children or family because it seems that they will forget about their family and this could be some child harassment. I like this study, and I think there should be more out there and help people who are addicts to social media. WE need to learn to live regugarly and not be mesmerized by a technology that can be in our pockets, or two feet away from us. Our world with technology is getting bigger, and so will social media, we need to fix these problems before social media hurts us.
