As a technologically connected youth of my generation, I have pretty much grown up with, and on, the modern Internet. In addition, I have been writing since the 6th grade. As a generally shy person, writing has always given me an outlet. Granted, that outlet was always quite private. I think branching out could help me blossom into a better writer and a more confident person. I have little experience with blogs but I appreciate their very colloquial style. While you are writing purposefully about a certain subject, it is almost like a conversation between two people. You and your reader. I believe that style is best for connecting and opening up with readers and I hope to use it to foster an environment people will want to revisit.
