Reflecting on the Deeper Meaning Behind Music

I decided to write my semester presentation on the way that certain songs have underlying meanings behind their lyrics. This is a trend that I have seen in a lot of songs of various genres but Rock sort of takes the cake on the ones that have gained popularity over the last several years. This…

Watching Khalid Perform

About a week ago I had the opportunity to watch the artist Khalid perform at Rutgers’ very own annual Beats on the Banks concert. Being able to book such a big artist is part of the reason that Rutgers is so awesome and it is a really great treat for the students. The attendance of…

Checking In or Checking Out?

So this whole blog experience for me has been really interesting. At the beginning I was skeptical of my own talents as a writer and first time blog owner. I thought that I wasn’t going to enjoy writing almost weekly and constantly thinking about things to write about as well as content to publish. Luckily,…

Other Blog Jawns

When looking at other blogs for inspiration or just through boredom, I take deep mental notes on small things that I notice because someone may do the same with my blog. When looking at fashion blogs I also pay attention to the tone of the articles written and how the author is trying to come…

Peanutize

Growing up I would love going online and seeing websites where you can create a version of yourself in the art style of popular movies or shows. I remember one of the first ones I saw was for a personalized South Park character which I thought was pretty cool. It is pretty cool that these…

Free Use, Free Use

The way media is regulated for free use is pretty interesting, and I only found this out by searching…

2017 has been a good year for memes I would say. We had some really good ones with Salt Bae and the guy pointing to his head. But to represent my blog I had to choose one that truly has been making me laugh every time I see it being used, and its the blinking…

Social Media Presence

One factor that can boost the amount of exposure that one’s blog can receive is the use of social media. Optimizing social media presence can help more people gain access to your blog and will further improve the amount of activity it receives. In the real world blogs usually do this on all social media…

Continuing a Blog

One thing that truly caught me off guard this semester was this assignment, and starting a blog in general. Over the past years I’ve always seen opportunities in which I could’ve made one for a project or something however I always seemed to stray way from it. The whole idea of posting almost daily never…

Cast

Choosing which blog to talk about and virtually tour was fairly easy because I modeled this blog closely to it. The blog that I chose was FourPins from Complex.com. Four Pins used to be it’s own website however Complex acquired it and integrated it into their Style category blog posts. I go on both websites…
