Blogging report: 2011 in review

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2011 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

The concert hall at the Syndey Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 26,000 times in 2011. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 10 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

Don’t stop me now…

“I feel alive 
And the world, I’ll turn it inside out! Yeah!
I’m floating around in ecstasy,
So don’t stop me now…
I’m a shooting star leaping through the sky…
I’m gonna go go go there’s no stopping me
I’m burning through the sky, yeah…”
Queen, Don’t Stop Me Now

I recently started two new blogs and they’ve been as exhausting as that shooting star burning through the sky, YEAH!
Check out “Respatialized” on www.erasmusjourno.wordpress.com.
It gives a platform for my Journalism classmates to start writing about life as a Mundus student, articles on politics/ finance/ war/ culture and more. The aim of the blog is to give an overview of what it feels like to be an exchange student and not being able to write in your mother tongue.

Then there’s “Any day Aarhus” on www.anydayaarhus.wordpress.com.
It’s all about the little city of Aarhus, where I recently became a Goodwill Ambassador. The aim of the blog is to promote Aarhus as ideal student destination.
Here is the video that won. Unfortunately, it was not my group, but at least Aarhus came first!

Blogger Generation

VANESSA SMEETS

This is my first class blog, presented to my Erasmus Mundus classmates from the Journalism, Media and Globalisation programme 2011-2013. I discuss the workshop from this evening, which focused on Blogging&Tweeting: how to blog, the history of blogs, the blog definition, etc…

I also include a list of which people blog in the class, as well as addresses to fascinating blogs. The reader is also given instructions on how to blog efficiently and effectively using WordPress.
