Do You Blog?

I was in Einstein’s, the little coffee shop far away from my second home in Cherry Hall, impatiently waiting for my hot hazelnut coffee to cool off and my bagel order to appear. The line was out the door and there were at least fifteen people ahead of me, so I did what any normal, talkative, and very bored person would do–I started a conversation with the closest, nicest looking person around me.

I began talking to a girl from Louisville about the never-ending line, boring classes, and demanding majors. She said Marketing and I said English.

“Do you blog,” she asked.

“No,” I said. I even laughed at the odd question.

“Well that’s odd,” she said. “Most English majors do. It’s like your thing.” I didn’t know what to tell her, so I kept blowing on my cup of coffee. “You should really look into it. It would be a good way to market yourself.”

So I looked into it.

I asked my classmates about the idea of a blog and they too had heard the same thing, either by older students or former professors: a blog was an important thing to have. It can show how well you write on your feet and with a deadline. So I took a class (Dr. Rice’s Technology and Writing) and started a blog, which ultimately landed me here– The English Major’s Weblog.

Here is where you come in!

If you’ve had time to explore the newly update English Majors’ Weblog (which I’m sure have) hopefully, you would’ve noticed the English Majors’ Personal Blogs tab. There you will find links to many of your fellow classmates’ personal blogs and creative outlets.

I’m here to tell you that we’re looking for some new blogs to add to our growing list!

If you have a blog, or are starting a blog, write to us and we will feature a link to your blog. We want to celebrate you and help expose you to the blog community. And if you don’t have a blog, I encourage you to create one in the near future and keep up with it. Most people think they have nothing to write about, but you have more to say than you think! It doesn’t have to be about English things; write about whatever you love. And it really is a great way to promote yourself and your English abilities. So what are you waiting for?

Like the girl in Einstein’s said–it’s our thing.
