    Process Post #4

    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.…

    Mini Assignment #1-Meme

    I’m sure we’ve all seen the iconic Hide the Pain Harold meme and know how hilariously relatable it can be when it comes to any sort of struggle. So, when I decided to create a meme for my motivational blog, naturally I thought to myself “why not use that same template?”. The idea behind it was that even though I strive to motivate and inspire people with a blog about self-improvement, I still struggled with this task from time to time. This meme became my way of saying “hey, look. even I have trouble doing what I’m trying to encourage!” with a bit tongue in cheek humour. If you’re feeling…

    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.…
