1. Do you enjoy blogging?
Yes, i do enjoy blogging because this is a new exposure for me to convey my message not through diaries and essays but on a website, where there is a whole space of my own. In my own 'paradise', I feel free to spread useful information on various fields such as job market and especially language learning to my fellow coursemates. On the contrary, I will read my friends' blog postings so that we can share our ideas and opinions together. Blogging makes language learning enjoyable and fun.
2.Based on your experience what is the benefit of blogging?
Before SKBP 1023, I have only heard about blogging but I have never laid my hands on it. After starting to write blogs, I realize that it really helps in improving our writing skills. There are lecturers, friends and followers who would scan through our blogs and leave me precious comments. From their comments, either compliments or critics, I would be able to know weakness in my writing skills when they pointed my mistakes out. Besides, I would also get to read others' blogs and exchange our opinions which I think is a very interactive way of learning.
3.Do you need more assistance to set up your blog ?
Yes, I do. I faced some problems when I set up my blogs at first. The only thing I knew was the way to sign up for an account with tthe basic settings such as layout, title and so forth. However, when i got to read my friends' blogs, I will consult them the ways to add gadgets for example music player, videos, games and etc.
4.Do you have any memorable/favorite topic in your blog?
Yes, the most memorable topic in my blog is the comparison of the four search engines. It is because I get to know about other search engines such as Mamma.com and Eric Digests. By doing the table, I get to know the differences and similarities between them. I also recommended the new search engines to other bloggers.
5. List 5 advantages of blogging for you
Firstly, I am able to vent my true feelings in my blog postings. Secondly, I can enhance my writing skills by realizing my grammatical mistakes, vocabulary and etc. Thirdly, I get to know more friends from other countries with different perspectives. Besides that, I would have the advantage to gather information on social issues from other parts of the world. lastly, blogging keeps me learning in English language.
