It’s Been a Great Start

I have enjoyed blogging this semester because it is a way to offer my own opinion on matters touched on in class. It offers a much more personal “voice” than my own voice in a class of 60.

I liked blogging on some of the topics that we could choose, and there were some topics I was not incredibly fond of just because I could not directly relate to it. I feel like the blogs on topics I did not enjoy offered vague responses, and I could have done a much better job if my heart, and interests, were in the post.

I do plan on updating my blog after the semester is over. I already have a Tumblr with quite a few “followers” that I update daily. Although Tumblr is more of a multimedia-oriented type of social media site, I do occasionally post text blogs that are personal.

Because most of my friends do not have a regularly active WordPress blog, it will take a while to get a “following” of people. But, I will definitely change the purpose of the blog from Intro to PR to my interests like concerts, vintage clothes, amateur photography, etc. I will probably even post links to this blog on Tumblr to get a cross-following.

But, before I do any of that, this blog definitely needs a makeover. It is not as aesthetically pleasing as I want it to be. I will consort blog guides like Secrets to a Successful Blog: Aesthetics and cool Widgets.

My Blogging Debut

For me, introductions are always awkward, no matter the setting. I am not great at the whole “let’s sum up everything you have ever done and liked in a few words.” No, I would much rather let my blog speak for itself. My interests/ hobbies spectrum is far too wide to sum up in a phrase.

But to follow some sort of “blogging protocol,” here we go:

My name is Kaylee.
I am 20 years old.
I am a junior communication arts major with a public relations minor at Georgia Southern University.

I am from Fairmount, a small town in Northwest Georgia. The land at home is so much different from the bare, flat land of south Georgia. I miss the mountains.

I love music. I do not play any sort of instrument, but I love music. I love the process behind lyrics analysis: breaking it down verse-by-verse, discovering references to outside culture, and adapting the song to fit situations in your life. To you, this is destroying a song. To me, it is essential, which probably plays a large part in why I am studying communications.

I love vintage clothes, pin up girls, punk rock, Americana, alternative country, amateur photography, and retro dresses.

So, hopefully, my blog will do a better job with reflecting who I am and what I am like better than I can just outright explain.
