Blog Reflection

Seeing my first quarter grades today I'm quite pleased. I guess there is always room for improvement in everything though. I guess I would try and get everything and every blog in on time and do them when they are assigned instead of waiting till the last minute. What I did right was probably very little but enough to get by. My goals this quarter is to work harder and to care more about my grade on this blog. I will keep up on my reading so I don't have to rush at the end. Those are my goals and what I did right and wrong.

My attitude toward the blogs have change very little. I still dislike having to read two books right now, The Scarlet Letter along with my chosen book The Boy Who Dared. Having to do both is challenging and obnoxious. Even in saying that, blogging is better than writting paper after paper on these books and having a shorter due date for them. With bloging you have new and different topics each week and different choices. One thing I do hate about blogging is that it is all on the computer. I hate dealing with electronics all the time. They are very unrealiable and sometimes complicated to use also to do these assignment you have to have computer along with internet. Some days the internet can be slow or even not work because of natural things or technical problems.

My new book for the second quater is The Boy Who Dared. I know many who have read it and I've gotten some good reviews so I am hopeful. Another reason I chose this book is because its based in the time of World War II which is a time I enjoy reading along with other times in history. This quater I hope to have more creative blogs with more pictures/ visual refferences. I think just reading a blog is boring and I think it makes my blog look boring and bland. I hope to also have my blogs up more contenuiously rather than last quater when they were all put up at the end. That is my new book and what you might see on my blog. Still can't believe its still going on, Oh fun....

My very first vlog o.O!

Commenting

Simone's Vlog-Hey Simone! Loved your blog. How strange this will be my first time Vloging too! I liked the details you gave about the book, not too much just right. I'm actually thinking about reading that book for our next set of blogs. Thanks for the all the information!

Melinda's 20 Pictures- Hey. I love your twenty pictures that represent your book. Its like you don't even need the captions because the pictures explain them selves. These pictures really makes me interested and I want to read the book. I also love the picture choices for the two guys. If that's how they are described in the book then I'm defiantly going to real it! Good job and thanks for the pictures.

Hannah's 20 Ppictures- Hey Hannah. The pictures you choose to use are very cool. I love how they all catch your attention and you used colorful and very animated pictures. I've never heard of this book before but now seeing the picture you picked and reading the captions help me see what the book has in store. Hope you enjoyed your book!
