Being my first online English class out of nine online classes, I found this type of class the most interesting course offered. My previous classes, I had to buy certain textbooks and materials for my classes. Hearing about this course before from a fellow St. John’s student, I was excited to take an English free writing course. In my own opinion, a free writing online course is a course, which you learn more about writing, particularly blogging. Blogging with other students is interesting because I feel comfortable reading and writing blogs than having a professor handing out essay assignments out and then correcting them. Writing on WordPress was actually interesting then writing a paper and worrying how bad or good I did. Please Professor never retire im spreading the word to my fellow students! Registering and making an appointment with the virtual writing center made it possible to discuss my writing with my writing consultant. Being able to work with someone virtually is better then working with someone face-to-face because I am shown by the writing consultant my strengths and weaknesses and how to develop better writing skills. Being over advice is better then sitting in a chair and wondering, “Jesus, what does he or she really think of my paper?” What kept me going throughout this course were my classmates. Being able to read and comment on other blogs help me to write my papers more precise. Having an idea, which may interest others, gives me a path to what people would like to read about from their feedbakcs. Writing with passion is important when writing a blog or a paper. Finding something I’m passionate about and make that the main subject of my blog is pretty interesting. Being a first time blogger, I made the mistake of thinking I can write about anything and still provide interesting insight. The truth is blogging is a lot like conversation. I was able to talk about anything, but it was more enjoyable when it’s something I care about. Poor blog posts stick out in the minds of readers more than good posts, so my goal was to hope to build a fan base stick to what I know. This isn’t to say I should never expand my horizons but if that’s something I do then I take the time to do the research.

Writing an essay has many purposes, however, the simple structure to an essay is the same no matter what someone can write about. Many people can write essays to argue a particular point of view or to explain the steps necessary to complete a task. Being able to decided on a essay topic is the most important aspect of writing an essay. Choosing the essay topic, a writer is expected to think about a general overview or a analysis of a particular topic. The second most important part of a essay is figuring out the thesis statement. The thesis
