In this process I've revisited the formal paper which was refreshing. I had become so used to the news story where you put the most important elements at the top and work your way down with no opinion or your own voice. I've enjoyed being allowed to choose my own topic and bring my voice back into the mix of things.
And also in the blogging process I've learned how to organize my thoughts in a creative outlet. With pictures and videos I was able to learn about confusing aspects of my research, raise questions to be responded to, and use visual aids in what I was talking about. I really enjoyed expressing myself on this blog.
Finally, I've learned how far journalism can take you. I wrote about young victims, politicians, and college campuses and they all fell under the realm of journalism. I think that even with the problems of journalism this is the right field for me because it can combine so many interesting topics.
