The Overall Summary of My Year!
What would I want to improve or include withing my site?
I would’ve liked to have been able to travel more this year so I could’ve produced more content. However, as a college student, I could only travel so much. I wish I would’ve tried to travel more or been a little more creative with blog ideas but I’ll know for next time!
How could I have better promoted my content?
I think it would’ve helped if I had more followers on twitter, however, I do not. If I had more followers on twitter, I could’ve gotten more traction through here. The next time I do this, I’ll try and add more hashtags or gain more followers beforehand!
What was my best experience of the semester-long project?
I think one of my favorite experiences throughout this semester-long project was just all the places I went. It got me out more than normal and I was able to get a taste of the blog life. I’ve always wanted to start a travel blog and this gave me a perfect excuse to do so!
In what ways could the experience benefit you in the future?
I think that these experienced benefited me because it makes me want to travel more. I was able to get a taste for traveling more and I think I’m addicted to it now. I think it will also help me with my writing in the future because I was able to learn a lot writing-wise during this project!
Discuss how I might implement these tool professionally in the future, in a job or an entrepreneurial endeavor.
This was a perfect start to a future job. I could keep this blog going and end up making a career out of it. If I don’t do that, I will be able to write on my resume that I’ve dabbled in writing blogs. This could help me with a social media career or for employers could have me run a website. This definitely gave me the basics I would need to start in one of those positions!

In all of the Site Stats data, was anything surprising to you?
