This is the end
This is my final blog entry. I would love to keep it up, but given that I have no audience, and that I'll be in summer classes and on co-op, I doubt I'll have time to really keep up with it. I'd rather not do it than do a half-assed job.
That being said, this was a new experience for me. After I got used to blogging, I actually enjoyed it. There were days when I looked forward to signing onto blogger.com and writing about the day's events. I'm a huge Sox fan, so obviously I chose to blog about something I was passionate about, which helped a lot. I definitely learned to keep my eye out for Sox news, so I could have something new and interesting to write about it.
If I could do it differently, I probably would. I would have done more from the start. There were a couple of weeks in February that really kept me from concentrating not just on the blog, but on schoolwork in general. I felt bad for having neglected the blog that long. If I had to do it over again, I would have taken more responsibility for updating, as I should have. No one wants to read a blog that only gets updated every 2 weeks. Also, I would have tried to promote it. Maybe then I would have had an audience (the few comments all came from classmates).
I really liked going through other people's blogs to see what they were writing about. I think blogs are an exceptional way to read about a whole bunch of different things without taking too much time. In today's culture, where everyone is always in a hurry, blogs are good - they give you what you want in a nice, convenient package, and readers don't have to sort through any info - it's already there for them.
My time blogging has taught me that this really is the future...with less and less people reading the papers and more turning to the internet, blogs seem like a great way to diseminate information. Plus you can do a lot of cool things with them as far as graphics, etc. They're more personal, too, which is what I like about them.
I enjoyed keeping up with my blog. When I went to a Sox game, the first thing I did when I came home was share my experience with whoever it is that actually reads this thing. I feel more connected now to Red Sox Nation than I ever did. I'll miss it.
