Basic Reflection on Youth Voices
Something that would really catch my eye on Youth Voices is a post that I care about. I mean obviously if I don't care about it then I am not going to comment on it. It just has to be interesting overall. This is a site where we can represent ourselves and show our levels of writing. The post has to be a minimum of 5 sentences. It doesn't make sense to post something that has any less because it seems as though it serves no purpose and we can't really hear the reader through the story. Usually when I am reading posts, pictures start popping in my head and therefore I can elaborate more on the post. I don't really value images so much because I think what you say has a bigger impact. There needs to be a hook, and that hook for me is exactly what your talking about. Most of the time, I comment on posts about "people" or "life" or "why people do this or that" because I think it's great.
My experience on here has been wonderful. I just realized that I don't have to use the sentence starters, and I can write freely so I've been able to say more on other kids posts. I feel so confined with the starters so I don't use them. It's starting to get much easier now because I'm doing it often. It's assigned, so I don't have a choice, but I enjoy it though because its real easy. I don't pick a topic that I'm indifferent on. I think it's just really cool to see all the other kids on here, and be able to just have this colossal ongoing discussion about everything. What's amazing is that there are people who share my thoughts and opinions and what I like to think about. All I have to do is type in "people" and voila. I get a myriad of posts from diffrent students everywhere. Another great thing is the amount of people I could comment on is endless because everybody's posting, so my options aren't miniscule. I have been posting posts about personalities and people and moral ethics and things of that nature. Honestly it's for you to decide if my posts are good or not because you're the reader, I really do try to make my posts the best I can. I try to make them very comprehensible and articulate, not just for the grade, but for the reader.
I just hope to make more posts and do something else that relates to my topic and what I am intrested in. Although I only go to what I like, I really don't want to come on as ignorant because I don't comment on anything else but these kinds of posts, so I will start commenting on images and pictures more. I'm just learning so much on here, I really like writing and this is a great exercise for that. I've been looking at a lot of posts obviously, and I can judge people a little from their writing. It's like I get into another persons world for the time I spend reading their posts because some people put songs up or poems and they express themselves through them, whether it be a sad or happy expression. I really like that about Youth Voices.
Blogging is just so much better than writing on paper because writing is a lot more strenuous. No matter what you say, writing online is technically ledgible all the time, unlike writing where people have all these diffrent types of penmenship. It's always coming in one way. Usually we all use the arial font, so yeah. You don't really have to worry about people crticizing or ostracizing you for what you type because it's through a computer.
