6.List 5 disadvantages of blogging
The disadvantage of blogging is bloggers have the intention to use short forms and abbreviations in their postings. Moreover, some bloggers will use "bahasa rojak" or broken language in their writings and some even come to an extend to use foul words just to release their anger. Other than that, some inconsiderate bloggers tried to post pornographic pictures and videos to cast negative influence to readers. There are certain bloggers who never consider about the consequences before posting their blogs as they touch sensitive issues such as racism. Last but not least, they will be too dependant to blogging and forget the main purpose of blogging thus using it in a different way.
7.Will you continue blogging after the course?
Yes, I will most probably continue blogging after the course and post my blogs in a diary form because I think it is an effective way to express my feelings in an appropriate way. I can also jot down important notes on certain lectures and feedback to share it with my fellow friends. The content of my blog postings will not restricted to language learning but it will also include my personal views and opinions on current issues such as social ills, sports, entertainment and so forth.
8.Do you think that blogging improve your writing?
Yes, I think that blogging, more or less will improve my writing skills because in the process of blogging, I have the intention to draft my outline of my postings and construct all my ideas in order to form all the ideas in a proper passage. A better quality passage will reflect my ability in pursuing this language and course. Besides, with the comments given by lecturers and acquaintances, I will be able to spot my mistakes (maybe) grammatically and that will act as a reminder to me so that I would not repeat the same mistakes in all postings to come.
9.Do you think that we should continue with blogging activity for the next batch of students?
I agree that the blogging activity should be continued so that the students would get to know more about blogging's benefits. Other than that, I would also give them some useful tips to make their blogs more interesting and appealing. The next batch of students would most probably enjoy this activity because they got to expose more to the Information and Communication Technology world.
10.Will you recommend your friend to blog?
I guess I am the last person to have exposure to blogs compared to the others. They are the ones who introduced blogs to me. However, I am most willing to share my feedback about blogs with the friends around me.
11.Can you teach a friend to set up his or her blog?
Yes, I will volunteer to teach my friends or juniors how to set up his or her blog.
