Campus Couture started out as a class project for my Online Journalism I class. I’ve worked with websites and blogs before, so I was excited to see what I could learn from the class and my blog.
I’ve been able to learn a lot from the class. I was able to work with different types of media that I’ve never used before, such as audio and video. One thing I took away from this blog and my class, is learning how to work with audio. Learning how to edit audio, and upload it to my blog successfully is something I’m proud to say I learned how to do this semester. I was able to use this new skill for my final project.
I also was able to learn a lot about journalism. I learned that some people may not always be willing to be talked to, but you can’t let that stop you from reporting or achieving your goal of finishing a story. I enjoyed getting the experiences of interviewing people, and talking to people about what they were wearing. I was able to “break out of my shell,” and actually talk to people to get pictures or quotes.
I started the blog trying to focus on the trends around campus, and the inspiration behind why people wear what they wear to class. I found it was a lot of fun being able to interview people about their personal style. I also enjoyed being able to check out all the different outfits people wear on campus.
Now that the semester is over, I plan on ending this blog. Unfortunately, I don’t believe I will have the time to continue updating it. Although I plan on finishing my blog, I hope to eventually start another blog. This experience was great, and I hope to eventually be able to use the skills I learned in this course to help me on my path to becoming a magazine editor (hopefully).
I’m very proud of several posts I made this semester. These are my favorite posts, and the ones I’m most proud of.
