    Oh my goodness!! Who could believe it? The lecture was cancelled due to snow! I mean, I love this class and all…it’s obvious by all the single efforts I put on my contents and my progress…but I honestly did a little happy dance when I found out this announcement on our Discord group…LOL! Especially since my flight got delayed for four hours at Monday late night because of the same snowstorm; talk about a stroke of luck! But I’m not just sitting around twiddling my thumbs. I’ve decided to tackle these readings head-on, and I am glad I did! At first, I was like, “Oh no, so many readings!” But then I started reading, and to be honest some…

    Editing plays a crucial role in the publishing process, shaping the final product that reaches the reader.  This week, I gained a deeper appreciation for the art of editing during a lecture, realizing how each of us, consciously or unconsciously, is involved in the process of curating our online content. The lecture opened my eyes to the multitude of creative opportunities that come with the role of editor and curator.  From evaluating content that aligns with a publisher’s goals and standards, to checking grammar and spelling, and adding alt text for accessibility, editors are instrumental in creating polished pieces that resonate with readers on both conscious and unconscious levels.  I…

    This week I read about the concept of a personal public and counter public, and it really got me thinking about my own audience. Who have I been imagining as I write my blog? How has that imaginary audience informed my blog decisions? It’s been interesting to reflect on how my perception of my audience has changed since I started writing this blog. At first, I imagined an audience of people who were seeking personal growth and self-affirmation, just like me. But as I’ve continued writing, I’ve realized that there is a much broader range of people who might be interested in what I have to say. So, going forward,…

    Mini Assignment #2-Guest Post

    Guest Post-Wonder Woman Wonder Woman is my ultimate favourite DC heroine! She’s an Amazonian warrior and a symbol of strength, courage, determination & justice. Her incredible powers inspire us to fight for what’s right in the face of adversity – a key message I try to emphasize in my self-improvement blog. On top of her fierce physicality is Wonder Woman’s heartwarming origin story, which champions love, kindness & understanding as core values we should all strive towards achieving – especially when writing posts about personal growth and empowerment. From Princess Diana to the powerful superhero that she is today, her journey inspires me in many ways – especially for staying strong and doing what’s right.…

    How Often Do You Talk to Strangers?   In the social media age, it’s almost too easy to reach out and start a conversation with anyone in the world. But what about talking to strangers in real life? It can be intimidating, but I’ve found that talking to strangers in real life can be just as rewarding and meaningful as talking to them online. Let me explain why!   Difference Between Online and Offline Conversations   When you are talking to someone online, there is no face-to-face interaction or physical presence. You don’t have to worry about what the other person looks like, how they dress, their body language, etc.…
