To the dismay of all of my mormonwaffle-lovers out there (points to crowd, crickets chirp) I announce to the dismay of you all that this will be my final regular blog posting. I have enjoyed learning the ropes of becoming a blogger, and I have come a long way from my garage band stage. I have evolved as a rock star blogger, and who knows, maybe now I am at the point where I could open for Metallica (or maybe just sell tickets, let’s not get ahead just yet).
When I first started this blog, I will admit that I was extremely biased (see Mormon in title). As a first time blogger, I began by harshly judging each candidate and tried to convince readers to vote a certain way. However, I was hit by a reality check and realized that my job was to provide an unbiased amount of information regarding specific aspects of the economy and state the facts.
My analysis post really helped me realize the true economic struggles that our country is currently enduring. With the largest national debt in history, both candidates have their work cut out for them. By doing an analysis post, I realized how I needed to write my blog; I needed to inform citizens of what each candidate plans to do to help the economy. Both Mitt Romney and Barack Obama proposed a plan to help the current economic situation and I decided to examine each.
Now that I had gotten into blogging, I began to kind of enjoy it. Upon researching each plan, I was able to find more details that led to more articles, such as the Bush Tax Cuts and the stationing of troops overseas. I even looked into what would happen if the economy was left alone and how the candidates could compromise and get along. Before I knew it, I was blogging like crazy.
Suddenly, this project was to be turned in soon. More importantly, I had to vote. Not only did this project help me gain blogging experience, but it helped me become an informed citizen and impacted my vote. Evolving, I went from a cut rate garage band trumpet player to a rock star. I have enjoyed writing for all my followers and I have hoped that I have helped you as much as I have helped myself. That you for all of your comments and, who knows, maybe mormonwaffles will have a comeback tour. ROCK ON!
