I believe that our project was an overall success.
Obviously, we’ve all maintained blogs on WordPress, but everyone in our group also remembered having blogs on websites like LiveJournal, BlogSpot, and Tumblr. It was interesting for us to all be able to compare what blogging used to be like and what it’s like now.
I learned a more detailed process of how blogging has grown over the years and was able to observe many websites and their transformations over the years. I also delved deeper into how and why blogging has grown so popular recently, and looked deeply into the monetary aspect of the growing trend. It’s also interesting to note that some huge websites technically function as blogs. Some notable examples include The Huffington Post and Buzzfeed.
This project has been a very interesting insight to a subject I already had some familiarity with.
