I am UIC: My experience as a blogger
I started blogging for UIC during my sophomore year. My first blog highlighted to the yearly UIC music event – Spark in the Park.
After I wrote my first piece, I understood an essential part of blogging — the ability to engage with different individuals, acknowledge their different opinions and then begin to put these different opinions together in a fun, interactive manner. This becomes the essence of blogging.
At the beginning of every semester, I would look at my class schedule and begin to ponder about how to fit blogging into my weekly schedule. But then I would think about how blogging has improved my communication skills as well as enabled me to interact with different activities on campus. I love what I do.
I will be graduating this spring semester; this is my last semester as a blogger at UIC.
Blogging is one of my best experience at UIC; I am glad I took this position.
