Reflection of Using Blog

Using blog posts to represent personal thoughts of the knowledges I have learnt is a totally new approach I have ever tried. Since I was not used to such socialised means, it was challenging for me to start with. The blog posts I have done are, still, not like telling stories in person but more like academic essay. However, the experiences on blogging show that it could help a lot on studying. The first benefit of using blog is share. Blog is a place where everyone can participate in and share their own experiences. Study on urban design or relevant subjects always require a wide reading and abundant on different cases all over the world. Due to the time limit, the ability of reading and experiencing of an individual is often limited as well. However, with the assist of blog, people could share their own experiences and interesting cases they have found. Especially, people sharing these experiences are always studying and interested in similar fields that you are studying. These kind of experiences are always more helpful for future study. Meanwhile, in some cases, two or more people might interested in a same case, it could also provide a good opportunity to know and share what someone else think about this case and is there any special aspects that I have not considered yet. The second advantage of using blog is communicating. In terms of communicating, blog delivers two main communicating approaches. The first one is using comments. Similar with blogging, comments is an approach to know other people`s thoughts on what you have posted, which could provide a more comprehensive understanding on one specific topic. On the other hand, blog itself is a communicating means. We designers, planners and architects are always seek some direct, simple and understandable ways to deliver our design proposes to the public. I am not saying blogging is an efficient for all these delivery, but it bring us a consideration on what is the most efficient way to deliver what we want to tell the public. Blog itself is an entertaining social tool. The form of blog does not have to be pure words or as boring as professional texts and diagrams, video, optional texts and diagrams, Q&As, are all acceptable on blog. It is more socialised and more acceptable to the public, namely, blog is a more accessible communication platform. Besides, blog could be participated by more people who is not from similar background with you, namely, these people are from the public. Hence, their opinions are actually the responses we are looking for. The use of blog will be continued. Although, at this stage, not all the functions of blog have been used well. Blog is more a daily life social tool to optionally record any thoughts you what to share with others and listen other people`s opinions. It could be seen as lots of people are helping you on your study on blog. Therefore, the higher  frequency blog has been used, a wider knowledge you might learnt.
