For the past year and a half, I have been a self-proclaimed blogger. I am not sure what qualifies someone has a blogger (Do you have to post a certain number of times a week? Do you have to have a certain number of followers? Do you have to be insightful?). I could go on with this list for a while.

My point is, in continuation with my technological timeline, blogging has given me the ability to grow as a writer and even as a reader. The process of writing a blog post is not as extensive as writing academically, but it is a process nonetheless. I would say that the biggest lesson learned through blogging is to just type what is on my mind and not be wary of messing up, making a bad grade, or falling somewhere below perfection. Blogging has given me writing freedom, and I am thankful for it. 

From Read-Along books all the way to Blogger, my technological timeline proves that I did not obtain literacy from published hard-copy books and pen/paper alone. They had help from "talking" books, a magical purple dinosaur, and even a dusty old chalkboard.
