With a Great Blog, Comes Great Responsibility

When making a blog, there are certain standards that the poster should be held accountable for. I think the first and most important responsibility is being grammatically correct (I hope this blog doesn't break that rule). I hate reading posts where something is spelled wrong because it takes away from the post and I automatically think less of the writer. I also think that if you're serious about blogging, that you should post blogs on a semi-regular basis so followers have something to read.
          In regards to communication in general, their a lot of rules to follow that don't even have to be said because everybody already knows the basics of communication when it comes to informal communication. Formal communication though, has more rules and people take classes to better their formal communication. So far in this class, it is very apparent that when communicating, you have to consider your audience in regards to what you want to say. I think that good speakers do this subconsciously but the great speakers make a conscience effort to really appeal to their audience.

My First Blog

Well I don't really know what to write about so i'll just write about my experience in college so far. This semester I decided to be a resident instead of commuting and it has its ups and downs. For starters, I can eat dinner whenever I want and I am on my own schedule. I also can stay up late without having my parents nagging me to go to bed. However, the bed here is a big downgrade from the bed back home. Also, because I have my own gallon of milk, I can drink straight from the container which is pretty convenient. I found that trying to do laundry on a Saturday afternoon is pretty hard considering there is never a machine open. The internet here at first was pretty abysmal when trying to do anything more than checking your email, but since the addition of the new network "LewisWifi" I can actually play online without a problem. Having a roommate is pretty cool except for when I have to get ready in the morning with out waking him up.
This picture is just to practice formatting the blog.
