When I first got the assignment to create a blog entry for ning, I thought: “OK, I can do this. It shouldn't be too hard”. Well, it wasn't as easy I had expected. Actually, it was a lot harder than what I expected! I tried to come up with different and unique things to write about since the blog was assigned, but I couldn't think of anything that wasn't too obvious or too ridiculous. By the time I thought a good idea, there was already a blog entry on that subject. And this kept repeating.
Even though I like the fact that blogs are a nice way for us to express our feelings and thoughts about some specific topic, it proved to be pretty challenging to come up with something different. It's true that there are millions of topics that can be related to American Studies, but I don't want to write about anything; I want to write about something that has to do with the unit we are currently studying, something that affects us to some extent, or something I think is interesting or important. Maybe I'm just making it harder than what it actually is, or maybe I have absolutely no imagination, so I was wondering: Are you guys also struggling to think something to write about or do you think it's easy? Do you guys like having to write a blog on ning? What do you think about it? Please feel free to comment on your opinions :)
