The Time Has Come!

Today is officially the last day of our FDOM class! Although I’m really happy it’s almost time for a break, I still have 3 more finals ahead of me! I will definitely miss this class. I enjoyed learning all of the useful tools there are available in social media. I really had a good time doing this blog! When your blogging about something this is your passion,  it becomes more fun than anything!

It is amazing how many different ways a blog can help promote someone. Whether it’s for personal use, business, or branding, you are able to go more in depth with specific topics. I used blogger in the past for another personal blog, and I must say I prefer WordPress! Along with being user-friendly, I like how it is easier to follow other blogs and have followers myself. Also, connecting with other social media outlets such as Youtube, Storify, and even widgets, was a breeze! I wouldn’t change anything for WordPress or our requirements for class. I felt everything was easy to understand, and tutorials were always available.

I’m not sure if I will continue blogging in the near future. With my class load it is difficult to keep up with posting. However, if I have a job in the future that requires blogging, I wouldn’t mind one bit! I may even begin a blog my last semester to make myself more attractive for hiring! All in all, I’m glad we had this as a project in FDOM. I have recommended this class to friends, and find all the information we learned very useful!

Must Haves for Running!

Outside of good running shoes, it is very important to have the right clothing and accessories! Cold, hot, or somewhere in between, ‘must haves’ make it a little easier when deciding what to wear. Being comfortable is one less thing to worry about while working towards your personal goals! I have created a video of my personal favorites. Hopefully, you find my suggestions useful!!
