I’m an active user of Facebook, Tumblr, and Twitter, but I’ve never come across WordPress until this past Tuesday (2/5) in Strategic Presentation. Hands down, I have to say that WordPress isn’t as easy as Tumblr- everything here seems so much more complex and abstract. I’d have to say the only similarity of the two are the infinite amount of themes they provide. Although I’m an active user of Tumblr, I rarely take the time to express my thoughts on certain issues. Instead, I explore through different blogs and re-post what interests me. That would have to be the main difference between Tumblr and WordPress-posts on Tumblr migrate from different pages, whereas content on WordPress is something I can call my own, besides the images I copy and paste from Google.
This is my first ever blogging experience where I had to fill in the nooks and crannies of this page with information about myself and my thoughts in general. Decking out this blog with a theme, header, widgets, and pages has been an extremely confusing and intricate journey. After watching Professor Trammell’s tutorials on eCollege a few times, I was able to navigate around the site a lot smoother. After playing around with WordPress for a few hours, I’ve gotten used to it.
Seeing my blog starting to come to life brings me a sense of bliss because I put a lot of my time and effort creating it. It looks bland, but I like the simplicity of things. Even though it might look a little novice right now, I’m excited to continue the rest of the semester expressing my thoughts and feelings on each unit’s topic here. I expect it to be jam-packed by the end of the semester, and I’m excited to go back and read through my journey. I want to see my blog not as a place where I come weekly for an assignment, but I want to be able to see it as a vicinity where my reflections can cascade.
‘Till next time, peace.
