10 things I have learned from this blog:

1. The Blog world is huge. Just today there were 251,292 people accessing wordpress. 153,877 new posts. 207,245 new comments. 39,858,794 words written today on wordpress. And I remind you that WordPress is not the only blogging site..

2. Not only is the blog world huge but it is extremely broad as well. You can write about anything you want and someone in the world will read it. (Our group blog had over 200 hits) You can also search for any type of blog and I’m sure you’ll find something along those lines. (google’s blog search)

3. I learned that news today is a lot different than what it was before. Now anyone can write whatever they want and it can be read by absolutely anyone in the world. We are now in an age of  ‘social media’.

4. I have learned how to successfully use and place different types of links. (permalinks, hyperlinks etc.)

5. I have learned to take screen shots with a normal PC. Before I didn’t know you could. I could only do it with my Mac and its cool keyboard functions.

6. I have learned how to make a blog post interesting and appealing by the use of images, videos and other types of multimedia. 

7. I had already heard of Podcasts but I learned what Vlogs are with the 4th weekly article. I had never heard of them before.

8. I learned how to place widgets use blogrolls and how usefull they are.

9. I learned what an RSS feed is and how to subscribe to one.

10. I learned how to use Google Docs, Google Reader, Bubble, WordPress and Delicious. All websites and programs which are extremely useful.
