Thoughts on Blogging – Ji Yong Eom

Blogging was never a big part of my life. I had a blog before, xanga? a while back, and tumblr, also a while back. I usually stay on the site for about a few minutes and then I just log off for months. I don’t really see the point of having a blog, rather than typing about your day. I think I’d be better off just telling someone about my day rather than letting everyone in the world see it. I don’t enjoy blogging and I don’t think I ever will. I followed my friends’ blogs but it was always the same. Just the same pictures constantly being re-posted one after another. All in all, I just think blogging isn’t right for me.

Thoughts About Blogging- Justin Musumarra

My blogging experience has been good so far. I’ve had blogging experience from a class in high school, but this one is definitely more interesting. Blogging can be a boring experience unless you read and write about things that interest you. This is different than what I expected because the blog I had to do in high school was really boring so I expected this to be really boring too, but it really isn’t that bad. I’m not much of a blogger, but I do read sports related blogs occasionally to keep me up to date on important events. http://espn.go.com/espn/blog/index/_/name/berry_matthew This blog is one of the ESPN top Fantasy Football analyst’s and during the football season I check his blogs for scores, injury updates, etc. Another blog that I check occasionally is http://www.sbnation.com/ This site connects me to a whole list of about 300 sports related blogs, which again keeps me up to date on all sports related topics.

Thoughts on blogging – Wan Yin Lee

Despite the moaning and groaning upon the knowledge that having to post these blog entries were required to pass this course, this experience was not all that bad. While yes, having to share personal information left a bit of a bad taste in my mouth, being able to write down random thoughts – be they personal or fake – was quite enjoyable somewhat. I, myself, don’t actually know what the reason is, perhaps I’m just that much of a masochist, but I’m guessing the enjoyment stems from being to be able create a piece of composition without having to worry about the thesis of my passage, proper grammar and the like. The 500 word minimum on the “Who am I” assignment was unbearable, however.

As for the blogs I follow:

A friend from high school is running a blog that both highlights and records her food based expeditions. If you’re looking for restaurant recommendations in NYC, look no further!

I love doing crafts, since I seem to get bored way too often. While I’ve stopped focusing on crochet and started to turn towards sewing, it’s still nice to see all the adorable designs that the owner of this blog comes up with.

Thoughts on Blogging by Michael Sheridan

Well to be honest I’ve never had a blog before so this is my first experience. I never really thought I’d start but here I am right now blogging. Blogging has been what I had expected, lots of writing. I enjoy that it helps me to kind of know my classmates better and get to know things about them such as some of their interest. What I don’t like about it is that I usually forget when a Blog entry is due. It’s different from what I expected because it’s kind of like facebook and twitter where you just write or tweet what’s on your mind. I don’t really follow any blogs besides the ones in our class but I guess facebook, twitter and instagram can be somewhat like a blog. Blogging has been fun for me it gives you a chance to write what’s on your mind and see what is on others.

Amy’s Playlist

Playlist: FRO Blog #1

My eclectic taste in music is a good reflection of my diverse interests.

Spice Girls and the soundtrack from the movie Chicago bring back girlhood memories of my sister and I singing and dancing for hours on end.

Loaded is the theme song of my favorite WWF wrestler – it’s the closest I’d ever come to watching sports growing up.

I did my gymnastics routine to the instrumental version of Sweet Dreams by Marilyn Manson.

The first time I got on a motorcycle I had the Rolling Stones playing.

I psyched myself up before my first bright jump by blasting Disturbed.

I had Alice Cooper playing when I took my first solo road trip for my eighteen birthday.

On the other hand, I keep classical or blues on while I study.

Most of my childhood summers were spent reading at the library.

Between coaching gymnastics, training at school and after hours at my gym, I practically lived in gym sweats for five years.

I shop for office supplies and computer gadgets with the same enthusiasm I would for shoes.

I’d gladly keep my nose buried in my Art History book if it gets me out of washing dishes.
