New to the blog thing also… Not too sure how to use this. Okay, after reading the essay about writing a personal essay I learned that it is more than just writing for a good grade. Personal essays are also good for the writer. I feel it is a sort of therapy because we are writing about things that we might not talk about as much. We are putting a lot of personality into our essays and it is more about the writer than anything else. It may also be good for the readers too because they get to read what we are all about and maybe some of our experiences are in our essay that they can learn from. I am a little scared to write a personal essay because I do not often share things about me or my past experiences. On the other hand, I am excited to see what I can come up with (without giving too much away about myself) and how much I can improve my writing.
