Task 6 - Blog Questionnaire

Dear all,

As for our final posting for SKBP 1032, we are required to fill in a questionnaire. Happy reading!!

Blog Questionnaire

Age : 20 years old

Tutorial Group : Group 1

Lecturer : Assoc. Prof. Datin Dr. Norizan Abdul Razak

1. Do you enjoy blogging? Why?
Yes, I do. This is because blogging is something that most people all over the world is 'crazy' about including me. Actually I've been blogging ever since 2005 to 2006. This is because I enjoy reading others' blogs whereby most of them use blog as their online diaries. They uploaded pictures, videos, songs and their experiences and what have happened to them which attracted me to own one. I really enjoy 'blog-hopping' even though I don't even know the owner of the blog. It's more fun when there is people come and give comments to my posts, doesn't matter whether it's my friend or a total stranger. In terms of blogging for assignment like this blog that I have here, I found it's more students-friendly. What I mean here is I get to choose when I want to post the task given, as long as it's before the next tutorial class. I don't even have to go to SoLLS just to hand in my assignments. With only one click I can publish it. Plus, we are given the freedom to decorate our blog which added more fun to blogging.

2. Based on your experience what is the benefit of blogging?
Based on my experience, there are a lot of benefits of blogging. Well, the question ask only one benefit though. Datin, can I give more than one? Hee.. I'll just list down the important one okay. First, in terms of my language learning. Even though we cannot see the progress, but somehow towards the end of the semester, I feel like I have more confident in writing online. Besides improving my writing skills and my Grammar awareness, I also get to improve my vocabulary because in order to complete the task, I have to read at least one article regarding the topic given. Second is in term of my ICT knowledge. The more I explore the blog, the more I learn. Everytime I see someone made something nice to his or her blog, I will always have the urge to find out how to do it and I ended up learning it like something about HTML coding and CSS.

3. Do you need more assistance to set up your blog?
No. Usually I'm the one to help others because they are quite new to blogging in terms of changing the layout and adding more widgets to their blog. Feel very pleased to help my friends because at the same time I get to learn something new also.

4. Do you have any memorable/favourite topic in your blog?
Yes, I do. It is in my personal blog, when my schoolmates and I were featured in a local newspaper for getting good results in SPM 2006. Since I don't have a scanner, I just captured the picture from the newspaper using my handphone's camera. Even though I'm not the best student that day, but that was my first time being featured in a newspaper. Here is the picture. I'm the one with the circle around my head.
As for this blog, the most memorable posting was when the whole class of Group 1, was invited to go to E-KOM National Conference at PNB Darby Park Hotel. We had so much fun and gain new experience. Thanks again to Datin for inviting us there.

5. List 5 advantages of blogging for you
  • student-friendly - I can choose when I want to post as long as it does not exceed the time given
  • money and energy saving - I don't have to print out my assignment and submit it at SoLLS
  • get commented directly by lecturer and even friends
  • can improve my writing skills, my Grammar realisation, my vocabulary
  • get to know and learn more things regarding ICT
6. List 5 disadvantages of blogging
  • tend to copy others' work or failed to give credits
  • problem with internet connection - sometimes too slow sometimes nil
  • wide usage of "bad language" which refers to ungrammatical sentences, wrong spelling, colloquial language, etc.
  • technical problems - unable to post comment, unable to play songs, etc.
  • at risk of being flamed by others not only by local people, but the people from the entire world
7. Will you continue blogging after this course?
Yes, I will because I've been blogging for about 4 years and there's no reason to stop blogging as it's a very fun activity. I can share my experience and even my problems in the blog and some friends of mine who read it will comment and give some advices to me. It's a win-win situation. Besides, with writing what I've been through in these days, when I re-read the posts again, it is very nostalgic.

8. Do you think blogging improve your writing?
Yes, it does.

9. Do you think that we should continue with blogging activity for the next batch of students?
Yes, I think you should.

10. Will you recommend your friend to blog?
Yes, I will. This is because I get to know their latest condition just by referring to their blogs and I can get to widen my blogging network.
