First off, I would like to thank everyone who took the time to leave some feedback on my posts! Thank you guys for helping me to improve on my assignments in the future. One thing that I myself think I have learned from reading other’s blog posts is that I write way too much most of the time. My mind is set in essay format all the time when I don’t think it should be. It should feel a lot more relaxed and free flowing while reading instead of a concrete essay format. I will do my best to change this in the future.
My favorite comments from this week was about my Create A Place assignment. Casey said,
“Hey Jacob! I enjoyed your final creation for the ‘create a place’ assignment. I did feel like I was in New York or a large city while listening to it. The beginning was my favorite because you had the birds screeching and the car horns honking at the same time and it was very loud and almost hurt my ears, which is the chaos I’d imagine I’d hear if I ever did visit New York. The rest of the video wasn’t as chaotic, with the trucks beeping and siren sounds only having melodious bird sounds in the background. I feel like it would have felt a little more like New York City if there had also been people talking, or tires screeching, or some other sounds also in the background to make it louder and sound more busy and populated. (But honestly what do I know, I’ve never been to New York 😆) Overall I really enjoyed your story!”.
This comment really stood out to me because they offered legit suggestions that I could implement into my assignment given the opportunity. I felt like this person really took the time to understand my assignment and then post some constructive feedback. Obviously, there were many other people that had comments similar to this one and appreciate you all!
In the future, I will do my best to try to actively respond to comments and update the assignment if it can be. I think that comments are such a valuable resource that I need to take more advantage of down the line. Thank you all that commented for taking the time to look at my assignments!
