Why WordPress?

For the last three years, I have used WordPress to post numerous and repetitive subjects I enjoy writing about. But these are not the main reasons why blogging on WordPress is such a great idea for college students. The reasons down below are:

1.) Receiving Audiences–> depending on how long it takes you to adjust to WordPress and how interesting your topics are, you will start receiving audiences who are interested in your work. Not only will they have to go the extra mile to follow your page, but it’s essential for you to communicate and follow them as well because you never know, they might be interested in the subjects you enjoy writing about.

2.) It’s a Public Journal–> you are as free to express your opinion and knowledge without being heckled by too many anonymous Internet users on a daily basis. Consider this website as a journal, but a public journal where everyone will read, share and give their honest opinion about it. Consider criticism to be apart of your growth as a blogger.

3.) Easy Website to Adjust To–> once you know where you stand on your website, you can design your website by selecting a theme that matches what your purpose for blogging is and it becomes extremely easy to adjust to.

Why Consider the Yearbook Staff?

There are many reasons to join an extracurricular activity, especially the yearbook staff. Here are some reasons why you might consider joining:

1.) Creating Unforgettable Memories-Creating a yearbook is not just about jumping in and writing up interviews and posting pictures in the layout, it’s about creating memories that will last a lifetime as well as building many friendships with the adviser and staff.

2.) Gaining a Journalism Perspective-It’s not just about one perspective of how the yearbook staff should run its course and how to lay out the theme. It’s about teamwork and digging under the microscope until you understand both sides of a story and work your hardest to beat the deadline, edit your work until you receive the green light, which represents that your work is ready for publishing.

3.) Advertising Experience-Each member on the staff will have to run to different places in town and ask businesses if they are willing to put an ad in the yearbook. Sometimes people will tell you “yes,” and there are those who tell you “no.” Don’t feel discouraged because you are receiving a taste of how the real world functions. Advertising experience will help you become a people person and learn how to prepare you for a job in retail.
