Reflecting on my Blogs Expansion

I want to start off by saying thank you to my fellow bloggers who have viewed this page, you've helped me reach 800 views!!!

     I always thought of blogging for English 1A as a creative exercise for homework. We get to write about how we feel about something, and respond to an issue or someone's writing. I want everyone to know that if you think that this is just some silly school blog, than you're wrong.

    I learned this semester by viewing my audience of my blog page that there's people reading my blogs all around the world. I was shocked to learn how many people around the world were reading what I wrote for our English class, especially since I never sent my link out to anyone. Here's the stats that I saw today when I looked into my audience and where the viewers came from:

United States
United Kingdom
Hong Kong

My favorite blogs that I did this semester were Evantureland (Our advertisement blog on our ideal community) and The Great Evantures (5 photo collage). I'm majoring in filmmaking and I love creative writing so I felt that our ideal community blog really let us be free to express how we would like society to be and how it can be improved  upon. I also liked my Great Evantures blog because I was able to express where I came from, where I am, and where I hope to go.

Even though I may be done with English blogs now, this blog page will go on and I will continue to update it. I've been inspired from learning that people around the world are actually reading what I'm writing. I didn't get a chance to finish my video on Global Warming yet, but when I do this will be the first place that I post it up on.

My best work is yet to come, for this creative writer hasn't even scratched the surface of his full potential.


  1. I love how you got into the blog and even after the class is over you say you are going to keep updating it,, keep up the good work.

  2. Congratulations on your blog's reach. That is truly an accomplishment, because if what you write is not good, people do not read it. That is impressive. Although I designed the assignment, I am still always surprised (happily) at the way students then interpret it. You have found your voice and I'm glad to hear you will keep writing.

    Pleasure having you in class for the past two semesters. Good luck in all your academic pursuits, Evan.//lm

  3. It's been great having you as a teacher, I would definitely enjoy having you teach one of my classes again. I really appreciated the positive feedback you gave to everyone over the last two semesters, you did a great job encouraging your students to improve their reading, writing, and most importantly you challenged us to take sides and use our own interpretations or our own perspectives which made our assignments that much more interesting. Hope your next classes are as good as this last one, if not better!
