At first, I wasn’t very fond of the idea of creating an online blog for everyone to see. That was before I started actually working on it. It presents a great opportunity and a creative way to post my works and also include whatever I want and is of interest to me. An electronic portfolio such as this one tells a lot about its author, or rather creator, due to the fact that it gives the freedom to express oneself the way they want others to see them. It also allows for critique and comments, which personally have proven to be a good way of improving my own writing and also getting in touch with others, interested in what I’ve published.
The idea of getting in touch with a fellow student from Kentucky was indeed a productive and interesting one. It allowed for correspondence with people who live in a different place, have different views, interests, and understandings for certain aspects of life. The whole blog system itself allowed for multiple ideas to be exchanged and we all benefit from this. Having other people reflect on your works is the best way of develop your writing and even yourself to an extent, that is worthy of appreciation and acknowledgement.
