Blogging about Blogging

Why do we blog?
We blog to help others view our ideas. The Wesch video shows us that the "machine" is us. We are the technology we use. Our Blog, Facebook, Twitter or even Myspace is how people view us! Having these social media resources help others understand our view points, ideas, concepts and have the potential to view it at a later date. I define blogging as an outlet to relieve the inner most thoughts that others may feel the same way about. Why should we encourage youth to blog?
Youth will be connected to technology as an outlet. Youth at PASA during the Summer Scholars learned how to develop and wrote blogs. Blogs are the new diary of ideas that may be a struggle to be heard. People during this technological age find themselves "alone but together (Dr.Bogad)." For Youth social interaction is minimal and blogging can help them express their ideas and thought to the community of the internet world.


  1. This is good! Maybe we should start connecting with other Youth deveolpment majors and see what they are doing!


  3. You're right and this is awesome! I love the black background as it makes your pictures pop!

  4. Dear my very good friend Anthony lol first of all I am in love with how you set up your blog, its so neat and organized and I just love it lol.

    I completely agree with your blog post and think that when you said "I define blogging as an outlet to relieve the inner most thoughts that others may feel the same way about." its so true. Sometimes you want to discuss certain things on maybe Facebook or twitter people know its you. Where as a blog you can be completely open about your opinion and have a disguised name and picture and you feel like you have the freedom to speak your mind and in different ways such as articles, videos, and pics (basically what you just did lol)
