Me, Again

Me emerging from my blogging hiatus.

Another year, another subject to blog for! BCM240 is titled “Media, Audience, Place” so an introduction post is necessary as this subject will be focusing on our presences in the media and media spaces and how we interact with and use those media and media spaces. It’s a lot more technical and thought-inducing than other blogging that I’ve done, and I’m going to spend this semester over-analysing every move I make on the Internet – but in a fun way.

Not that BCM is the first time I’ve ever put fingers to keyboard in an effort to make myself heard on the Internet. It seems I’m one of the teens who’s had a blog for years and years whereas a lot of my classmates hadn’t even had the idea until uni asked them to create a blog. Which is cool, because they’re the ones who didn’t have to deal with the crippling rejection of only having your post viewed by five individuals.

I’ve always been online and if I recall correctly I’ve had around five blogs. The most successful was a book review blog that I ran for two years before school got in the way. From there I moved onto collaborating with another book reviewer who invited me to guest post and then asked me to stay. The most fun experience that occurred from blogging is meeting some of my favourite authors. I went to book conventions, signings, and interviewed quite a few authors who meandered down to the humble little island of Australia. Sadly that blog got deleted when I forgot to transfer it to my new email and deleted the old email (thanks Blogger).

So yeah, I’ve definitely had practice at this blogging thing.
