Under the microscope
I just discovered today that I am being critiqued!
Lauren, a Uni student from South Australia, has selected 2 blogs to critique for an assignment.
She chose one, honest-to-goodness, interesting and captivating blog called American Soldier....
I am quite impressed that she picked mine. Not really sure why however, but it's very cool to be found and critically analysed.
I don't think my blog is anything special at all.
I haven't changed the design since it began.
I write about stuff that interests me, but probably wouldn't interest everyone else.
I hardly ever re-read what I've written and make changes.
I just dump whatever is in my brain onto the screen and hit Publish (although sometimes I might spell blog like bolg, and come back to fix it so I don't look like a dullard)
I try to post every day, more for the fact that I want to have a record of my thoughts, feeling and life for myself, then to try and appease any audience I may have. A bit selfish hey?
I love the fact that people read it, but I don't expect them to REALLY read it. If they browse the headings, or flick through archives, or hit 'Back' straight away, I don't mind. But the fact that I get people 'window blog-reading' at all makes me happy.
There are so many great blogs out there that I wouldn't expect people to waste time at mine.
Most of the ones that I love are over in the Blogroll on the left, and some of those people really know how to write.
I just wish I knew how to write to be able to captivate an audience like those people do.
So anyway, thanks Lauren, for selecting mine out of the millions out there. I appreciate the words you've written and hope that your assignment gets the High Distinction that it deserves :)
