revised post 4

  In this post I'm focusing on my length of posts.

At the beginning of the day I sent in a blog process memo not thinking I had problems with the length of my writings. My goal is by the end of this post to know that I had succesfully learned how to write with length without rambling or ranting but with good sourceful productive writing. I can honestly say I wasn't putting full effort into the length. I thought it best to make it short and sweet. But I think know now its not about getting done as fast as possible. Its about writing that with a purpose.

I should put alot more effort into my posts. If you put effort into things it shows an accurate reading if your improving or not. And I think that is the point of college to improve and our skills so you will be more succesful later down the road in life. Just something as simple as spending more time on your writing and putting more effort into something could show you improvements you are making as a student.

So therefore I feel through trial in error I have learned alot today. Learned  the importance of content and length of writing. Had a reminder of why you shouldn't do things half way. I think over all this has been a very productive blog post and a very productive day over all.

post 4

  This is my 4th blog post. It is sposed to be on challanges and things we have learned in the class. This post I'm writng about my concern with working groups. Usually I enjoy group work it lightens up the work load. But given we only meet once a week it is kind of hard for us to work in groups not everyone has loads of free time. But guess we will just have to drive on and get the job done still even with our difficulty of meeting. I'm also having troubles with the lengths of my blogs I'm not sure how long they are supposed to be. I thought they had to be 6 sentences long but apparently that is not enough for it to be accepted. So therefore this is something I need to work on. I've had to rewrite this 3 times. And I will continue to keep rewriteing it until it is long enough. I wish there was a set number of sentences that would let us know what is acceptable. I feel like it should be just enough to get the point across Maybe it takes me three times writing a post to get the point across that I need to work on it maybe it will benenfit me when all is said and done. I feel like I'm just rambling and thought that rambling wasn't good for writing but if thats what it takes to get the length required for this then thats what I may have to do unless I can find a happy medium in getting the length without the rambling I'm having to to do get the length. So other than my class from 6:15 - 7:45 I will continue to rewrite this untill it is up to the length. Failure is not an option and will not be accepted so if I have to write this 3 more times I will.
  I'm having trouble with my length, breaking it up in paragraphs, and working in these groups to do a wikiproject I dont really understand. But I'm going to keep on driving on this post may not be up to par in structure grammar or whatever else I can't think of but It will be considered long enough. The next blog post due I will be able to hopefully get it right in one try I don't know how I will write a lengthy post on a topic I trouble on. If It takes me 3 challanges to fill up one post. But hey when there is a will there is a way maybe I will learn something on Thursday. Maybe I will learn something working in my group tonight. Heck maybe I will have this long enough so I can work in my group tonight. I'm just trying to find the postives in me rewriting this 4 times I don't see it now but one day soon maybe I will and will appreciate it as for now sorry for any hostility shown in writing this 4 times

post 3

  This is my third post on my blog. It sposed to be on challanges and things I've learned in this class. I'm choosing to write on our workings with wikipedia. I'm really intrested in doing it. Not everyone knows how to do that. But at the same time I'm worried about the difficulty we might have with it. Especially since I won't get my books untill the refund check comes back. So I'm kind of going to wing it untill I can get those books. But once I get the books and I can see the quotes and everything I need I feel like I will be able to start to understand everything better.

blog post 2

This is my 2nd blog post as you can see. This post is based on a personal experiance I have had in writing. In my 18 years of life I have not been required to do much writing given I went to Brindlee Mountain High School. The most writing I did in High School was in my Environmental Science class my senior year. In my Englishes all through highschool we mainly just did reading comperhension.

    This is my first blog post. I'm writing my blog post on "How to Write with Style". My post is sposed to be on the rule I think would be hardest not to break. I personally believe the do not ramble rule would be the hardest for me. Because I know I ramble on to trying to make papers longer to fill up space. I need to work on making my writing more intresting without rambling.
