The world of blogging was one I had never ventured into. Initially there were some technical aspects that goaded my patience. Nevertheless, I eventually got the hang of the basic tools and functions of Blogger.
I also realized that that the theories of publication and design proved useful in determining the visual aspects of my blog. I was pleasantly surprised at how much it actually aided me in writing and analyzing issues related to publication and design. Theories such as Kress and van Leeuwen's 'the meaning of composition' 'given and new' and Walsh's multimodality theory helped me to understand these issues better.
On a final note, the act of blogging was an interesting experience and one that I will continue to do.
