so our presentation was on the history of printing press, the public sphere, and where it's all going really
I tell ya what
A Levels are really handy things
I've referred so much this semester to stuff I did at A Level
can't believe some of the people on my course didn't take A Level Media Studies
So in my presentation my section was newspapers now and I referred a lot from A Level including blogs , vlogs and OhMyNews.
When it came to asking the class some questions about our topic I was shocked by the responses:
- None of them read blogs, have a blog or would ever write one
- None of them watch vlogs, have a vlog or would ever record one
They could of jus' been staying quiet 'cos our class is pretty quiet but even so not even one hand, not even following or subscribing to anyone. My lecturer even asked afterwards again and was surprised as well. He even showed us his friend vlogging I think to save us. I didn't wanna say I had both let alone one 'cos I felt embarrassed. I did however say I subscribed to Alex Day and Phillip DeFranco as I showed two of their vlogs and Alex got a laugh :)
I do actually feel a bit embarrassed about vlogging in general and a little bit blogging. For the first time since having a blog and vlog account though, I felt different from other people. I think when your in that blogging cyber world you think everyone blogs too and it's not that different; you're jus' doing what everyone else does. However sitting in a room of people and not one having one, I felt quite proud of myself. Feel like I should blog about something more significant now.
As my lecturer was saying, if everyone blogged no one would bother reading them, so I guess in that respect there still are a relatively small number of blogs. I'm sure there will come a day in the far away future that blogs will die out but for now I'm going to try and entertain the 28 people following me as much as I can.
Thanks for Following :)
Thanks for viewing my Vlogs :)
