New Post of Blogging & Journals: Similar or Different?

Here is a link to the old post: Journals and Blogs Similar?

Here is how I would write that post today:

“What’s your purpose for creating a blog? Did you create one to expand upon your writing skills? Perhaps sign up and use it as an online journal to vent out your frustrations?

It depends on the necessary tools to which you can utilize your blog and discover what captures a reader’s attention. For some individuals, they blog to write stories while others use to find a voice in a cause for two different intentions: 1) they are passionate about their dreams for advocacy or 2) they have a voice crying out for help.

Everyone has their own definition of blogging and what their intentions are to create one. Journals are hand-written, containing personal information to vent out anger while bloggers create a website to gain experience in the media industry as a hobby.  In ways, journals and blogs can be the same while they can also be different. “

Magazine Project #1 “Southern Nature Taken Over”: The Introduction Page Story

“As a first time magazine creator, I would like to take the time and introduce what topics have been covered throughout this entire journey: birds, roses, trees, flowers, cats, dogs, flower garden and crape myrtles. They all are apart of nature and go through what us humans go through in this world: life and death. Photos of nature do not only depict what cats are staring at or assuming what they are getting ready to do next, but photographs represent what their life is like, how it, he or she survives, and what changes throughout the year.”

Journal Assignment #2: Vocabulary Words

Tonight, I will be posting a blog assignment, based on terminology and definitions. There will be vocabulary words, their meanings and some examples down below.

#1: Preserve-to keep fresh, clean, clear. (Ex): It is essential for the park rangers to keep their park preserved for historical and non-historical reasons.

#2: Complex-difficult; challenging. (Ex): The math problem I solved for three hours tonight was complex.

#3: Essential-important, significant. (Ex): We have to understand the essential material over the Civil War because we live in the modern day South and teach it for our children to know what happened in the past and what we can do to prevent anything similar like that, from happening again.

#4: Prioritize-organize, priority. (Ex): Before you drive home tonight, you need to prioritize your work station and throw away any trash that you spot on the counters and floors in your area.

#5: Exponentially-quickly, growth of increase or decrease. (Ex): The crime statistics in Georgia have exponentially elevated.

Journal Assignment #1: Teaching Sentence Structure to Kids

Even though it seems as if I am writing a school assignment, I am not. This blog will not only contain photos, but my daily journal assignments that I enjoy discussing for English and Journalism majors, as well as high students and yearbook staff members.

#1: When you teach children how to write, think of simple vocabulary children can learn and move onto another level if they are ready to be taught a new set of terminology.

#2: Not to mention, teaching them how to shrink their sentences and fill in the blank with vocabulary words is another useful technique how to teach sentence structure to kids

*Now I will provide some examples of incorrect and correct sentences*

A1 (Incorrect): Before bed, mommy was reading me a story about two kids who were best friends who grew up and were split up in middle school because of becoming friends with new kids who came from different schools.

A2 (Correct): Tonight, my mom read a story to me about two kids growing up together as best friends until their separation in middle school due to befriending new kids from different schools districts.

*If my examples are not clear enough,  feel free to comment and I will be happy to explain or blog new examples.

Blogging As A Journal: Is It Similar Or Different?

When you write, do you write blogs like they are journals? I do, but what I post on here are positive journals to keep my writing abilities alive and happy. Blogging is similar to a journal because you are placing your personal thoughts on specific topics you write about online; not necessarily in a book.

Yes, blogging can have its negative posts, similar to a journal you write about in a book over issues that are frustrating and not understandable, but isn’t blogging about one over the other, or in fact, about both?

How would you identify blogging similar to a journal? Is it the same or is it different? How so?
