Okay that was probably the worst joke I’ve ever made…
So in maintaining my little Dickens blog, rather than just attempting to write down some nonsense to get a grade, I was trying to make a blog that other people might like. I didn’t want to just write a bunch of little essays, but figured it would be more interesting to bring in information from a bunch of different sources, both Victorian and modern.
So far my little blog has 5 followers and a total of 117 “likes” and “reblogs”, so not too many in the grand scheme of things, but more than I was expecting for a blogging assignment!
Working on this blog was fun because, in trying to come up with posts I thought people might be interested in, it led me to research Dickens and his works in ways that I probably wouldn’t have thought to otherwise.
I feel like this was a really useful assignment and one that I might continue with even though the semester is over. I already have a blog focused entirely on bears called MAKE YOURSELF LOOK BIG, so why not have a Dickens blog as well! I wouldn’t want to disappoint my 5 followers ;D
