Alas, the posting of this CAP 105 blog has come to an end…or has it? The semester wraps up in the next few weeks, and in writing the final few posts I had time to reflect on all that I’ve accomplished this semester, as well as what the future holds going forward.
Since this blog was originally a carry over from my former CAP 220 class, I believe I may continue on with it and keep it running. I enjoy being able to express myself in, as I’ve established throughout the semester, a professional yet semi-goofy manner. I find that’s the best way to go through life. What’s work without a little fun?
For what it’s worth, a pro for keeping the blog may be to show some small pieces of work to a future employer, depending on the qualifications and what is asked of me. The posts provide digital evidence of my completion of tasks such as Google Analytics, Infographics, etc. Perhaps if they ask to see some of this work, I’ll see what I can pull out of the ol’ woodworks.
Although, I guess a con of keeping it would be that I may not have done my absolute best work this semester. What I mean by that is that I am my biggest critic. What others may tell me is great I will look at and say I could have done a hundred times better. Sometimes I wish I took more time and worked harder at these small projects. But, maybe that’s just all part of the learning experience is to get your feet wet and start your path.
This blog definitely provides a networking opportunity, though, since not only can anyone read my blog, but anyone else I meet down the road who may have had to/wanted to create a blog at the same time period as myself will give us something to talk about. Who knows, maybe I’ll be the Senior Creative Director at Saatchi & Saatchi one day and someone will approach me asking them to do a business card, but nothing like the one I made with InDesign on my CAP 105 blog. Who knows.
