To continue from last week’s previous blog post pertaining to the differences and similarities between being on a yearbook staff vs blogging.
- Hobby-what you do in your own free time. No deadlines, being your own boss and enjoying your work without it being criticized for not being perfect.
- Extracurricular Activity-working on everyone else’s time. You are under pressure by multitasking. For example, editing your assigned yearbook page for sports and still expected to go out and interview someone else who will be in a different section of the yearbook. You will have to redo your work until everyone revises and receives the “green light” from the yearbook adviser and editor-in-chief.
- Blogging can also be deadline driven if you work for a journalism company and use a blog to publish your work.
- These assigned posts/pages can or usually are planned out ahead of time but still not be published until after the deadline where you edit and hand in your work three to four times.
