Writing blogs for 470 has been a pleasant experience. I liked how I was able to pick my own topics and run with it. I got to look at a wide variety of topics in the news & media, so that was extremely exciting!
I want to start a new more professional blog after this experience. I want to have a platform for my writing and a way to keep myself always growing as a writer. This will also mean I will keep in check with what is going on in the world. A blog is just like an op-ed. You can dissect current news by relaying in and layering your own thoughts and commentary. It is a good way to really understand how you form the opinions you hold. You can see them laid out in front of you. It is also just another great way to appreciate your first amendment rights in an everyday way, I know I take them for granted all too often.
