Writing and Design

I've realized that written communication is really important.  It is very important to make what you have written stand out to the audience.  For example, if you have more pictures, more color, exciting font, etc., more people will pay attention to what you have to say.  No one wants to read a boring long paper without anything that sticks out.  People are drawn to animation and design.  I would rather read something that had a colorful font and some pictures here and there, than read something that is just a 3 page paper of words.  All in all I learned the more you make whatever your writing stand out, the more people will take the time to view your work.

What I think about blogs

I think blogs are a good way of getting your opinions and thoughts into the world.  I do not think a blog can be very useful.  When I think of bloggers I think of people who really enjoy journaling.  I do think a blog could have a use for me. There are a lot of things I have opinions about that I have not yet shared with anyone.  It would be a good way for me to get my thoughts and ideas out there for people to see. I think a writing class would use a blog because it can show the class the many styles of writing.  I think we will use a blog in class to share our work with others so they can learn things as well.  I think they will be personal blogs, because they are blogs about what we think so obviously they will most likely contain personal thoughts.
