Blogging has become incredibly popular in recent years, with thousands of people signing up to create and maintain their own websites. Acting as online journals, blogs can be about any topic of interest, and they often contain elements of photography or video. I own a blog myself, and the experience has helped me to grow as a writer and learn more about myself and my interests.

Here are five reasons why you should consider making a blog!

1. It's fairly inexpensive.

Blogging is almost always completely free, with several websites like Wordpress or Squarespace allowing you to create your own site free of charge. Although upgrading to a more complex website or purchasing a domain name may cost a bit, blogging is overall very inexpensive, and can usually be done completely free.

2. It can be about any topic you like!

Blogs can be on literally any topic you want, allowing you to share your opinions or experiences about whatever you’re interested in. Whether it be politics, restaurants, or even sharing your photography, a blog allows you to express yourself creatively about whatever you are passionate about.

3. You learn how to operate your own website.

By creating my own blog, I now know how to successfully create and manage a website, a skill that has been useful in school and other projects. It has taught me how to edit, import, and upload photos, as well as organize various sections and subsections on the website. All of these skills have helped me with my blog and other activities!

4. It improves your writing.

Writing is a useful skill to master no matter what profession you go into, and writing for your own blog definitely helps you to develop your own voice and style. It also helps you become more interested in writing since you’re writing about something you’re passionate about!

5. It's a fun hobby!

Blogging is actually super fun and something that people love to do since they choose to do it! Social media can also help to promote your site, and some people end up becoming lucky enough to make blogging their full-time career.

If you’ve ever considered making a blog in the past, or just want to grow as a writer or find a creative outlet, definitely take the next step to make one. You won’t regret it!

10 Tips On How To Stay Focused During The End Of The Semester

Hint: Netflix is not your friend.

201

Staying focus during the end of the semester can be challenging. For me personally, once it starts to get cold out I don't want to get out of bed or leave my dorm to troop across campus, for an 8 a.m. class. The holidays are coming up and I know that is where every college students mind is at right now. Aside for the holidays, all we can focus on is when our last day of classes is, what we're going to wear, what to get our family and friends for Christmas, and everything we want to do during the holiday break. So here are some tips on how to stay focused on school during the end of the semester slump.

1. Use a planner/calender.

Giphy

Write down due dates and all your assignments. I write everything down in my planner and on my calendar.

2. Make a to-do list/schedule.

Giphy

Okay so maybe nothing isn't on your to-do list, but make a to-do list for every single day and the times you plan on doing each task.

3. Put your phone and other electronics away.

Giphy

Unless you need your laptop for a paper or research. Shut off your text notification on your Macbook, if you have one.

4. Don't miss class!!

Giphy

I know people are getting sick and its freezing out but suck it up and go to class. There's one month left of class/finals.

5. Stop multitasking.

Giphy

In the end it does NO good. If you're not completed focused on one assignment then you aren't going to do your best. Plus you're going to get side tracked and end up not doing what you're supposed to be doing.

6. Study somewhere quiet and not distracting. 

Giphy

AKA the Library and not your bed room.

7. Take breaks.

Giphy

Everyone needs break or two or however many you need so you aren't going to drive yourself crazy.

8. Go to bed a decent time.

Giphy

I know people have work and other responsibilities but come on, going to bed at 3am, never does any good.

9. Get a study buddy or a study group together.

Giphy

Do NOT pick your best friend, it'll go no where, real quick.

10. STOP PROCRASTINATING!!!!

Giphy

Do every single assignment as you get them, not the night before they are due.
