Week 1 Post

This is my first blog post ever!  How exciting.

Truth be told, I only created this site because it was a requirement in a course I’m taking called “Introduction to Digital Communication” at Syracuse University’s New House School of Communications. I’m hoping this will turn into something I love and continue to do for many years to come.

As minor as this may sound, my favorite take away from the professor’s lecture this week was: not all media criticism has to be negative.  Sure, I always knew about constructive criticism.  But when it comes to the media, I never thought we could actually provide constructive criticism.  Most of what I hear (and tend to give) is negative.  But I think this is great.  The course is helping me become a true critic of the media.  Someone who truly understands what is good or bad about a particular video/article I’ve just read.
