Well, our time here is coming to a close and I have to say I have enjoyed it! And yes it is the end of this road, but I know it is not the end of the journey. With what I have learnt here, I will apply to my future studies and grow in my writing and understandings!
Six weeks ago I was a not only a new university student but I was also new to the world of blogging. I want to say thank you for reading my blogs and I hope you have enjoyed reading them as much as I have enjoyed writing them!
Lets take a look at what we have covered over these last six weeks…
We have taken a journey through the world of the media with our first stop questioning what is wrong with the Media Effects Model, to controversial texts in the media and why we see them the way that we do, to the ownership and control of the media and debate within the public sphere.
I have always had an interest in the media and its role in society so each topic has allowed me to further investigate real and important issues we face today as each topic was very relevant to the media today and its impact on our lives. Writing this blog has allowed me to think about things that I would have really never taken into consideration, I guess I could say that my perceptions have changed and my knowledge has grown!
Blogging has provided me with a new way of exercising my love for the written word, in a fresh and fun way! It has allowed me to share what I have learnt and allowed me to consider others views and ideas.
It was a worthwhile experience because it helped me organize my thoughts, and now I have begun a portfolio of work that is unfolding, which is exiting! I can look back on these blogs and remember how I used to write!
It has opened my eyes to see and opened my ears ready to listen for more information to add to what I have learnt. It has started a flame! I am now ready to learn more about what we have covered, to expand my knowledge. This really is the right course for me because I cannot wait to learn more about everything we have covered!
This has also been a worthwhile experience because I have found something that I can really improve on… my lengthy, loquaciousness. I had trouble keeping to 300 words as I always have so much to say, but I know I can now develop this skill and learn to be more concise and effective.
Thank you BCM110! And thank you to the blogging world! You have taught me a lot!
In our WRITE mind. (After all this I hope you picked up on the pun!)
