|Now, how do I do a link?|
I have found there are times I have enjoyed posting my analysis for stories and poetry and learning some really cool ways to 'link' into other blogs and YouTube. I can even link into my goodreads profile.
Another cool thing I am able to do is bring my first and second personal learning posts together right here. I can review the basic literary terms (#1) and methods I have posted from what I have learned from the different genres (#2) of fiction and poetry.
I was able to post the poem that made such a huge impression on me so many years ago in my personal literary narrative (#3). It was good to see the comments of others who had a connection with the poetry I love.
Learning how to link into YouTube allowed me to do a poetry adaptation analysis (#4&5) of a great poem by Rudyard Kipling, which I am memorizing as part of my personal learning plan.
I think when I created one of my first posts on fiction, is when I found that blogging was a really fun way to write. I so appreciated Jamie's comment that made me feel I had actually done it right, along with Dr. Burton's idea of taking my metaphor of a roller coaster to make a visual diagram of the story plot. It was great to get ideas that could potentially expand an idea I had. It is just nice that someone is actually reading what I have to say!
When I posted about a book I had read for my personal learning plan, Kimara answered the question I ended my post with. She often leaves great comments that let me how my post affected her as well as to leave me with more to think about.
Mostly, I have enjoyed reading other blogger's posts. It is amazing how quickly you are able to get to know someone through their blog post. You can even 'hear' their voice. All in all, blogging has turned out to be a good thing.
