Hello everyone and welcome to my blog! My name is Carly Grieff and I am currently a senior at Furman University majoring in Communication Studies. I will be using this blog as a way to study and examine the various digital communications formats and techniques, which are prevalent in our society today. As I am stumbling upon new and exciting things relating to digital communications, I will be able to share with you what I have discovered throughout the semester on my blog page, as well as using this blog as a way to help guide me along the way path towards my future career. At the moment, I am still not sure what I want to do with my professional life post-grad, like most seniors. However, I am very passionate about magazines and newspapers and hope to one day write for one. This blog will be a way for me to express what I am learning about digital communications and how it has evolved the ever-changing print media industry.
What I most am looking forward to learning about digital communications throughout this semester is how to create and edit a video. Since videos have become one of the most important features of news websites and the Internet in general, I believe this will be an extremely beneficial skill to acquire.
Additionally, some of my blog posts will be tied together with a recurrent theme. I have two ideas in mind, one being a focus on the Furman Dance Company. I am a member of the Dance Company and have been dancing ever since I learned to take my first steps. It’s something I am very passionate about and I love discussing it with people, which is why I think I would thoroughly enjoy writing about it.
Another topic I am considering is the growing “foodie” fad throughout Greenville. I myself am a huge foodie and love writing about restaurants and delicious meals, therefore this would be an extremely appetizing topic for me. I have tried to make it my goal to visit as many of the food and restaurants options as I can during my college career here in Greenville.
Stay tuned for more to come!
