Blogging 101: Introduction Time

In lieu of school being over and no papers to write, I’ve decided to participate in Blogging 101!  I’m excited to put my words to good use and see what this next month brings.  I’ll be taking part in the daily assignments and challenges, so heads up!  I’ll try to keep on top of my weekly feature posts, but if need be, those might go on the back burner for the time being.

I’m running a bit behind due to work and real life commitments, but hope to catch up quickly.  The first assignment is simple: Introduce Yourself.  So here we go…

My name is Amelia and I recently graduated from the University of Minnesota, Morris with a degree in English and a minor in Communication.  I’m currently living under the roof of my parents while I job hunt.  My family owns an apple orchard, so I’m on the summer work crew doing menial labor.  It’s not the most glamorous work, but keeps me humble and motivates me to go on and make something of myself.  I love reading, painting, and biking.  I also adore travel and get out as much as I can.

I’d cover more of my reasons for blogging and such, but my “About This Blog” page sums it up quite nicely.

I’m participating in Blogging 101 for several reasons.  I’m hoping to polish things up a bit–there’s always room for improvement!  Mostly, though, I’m really looking forward to engaging in the wonderful community here on WordPress.  I’ve wanted to get more involved, find new sites, and meet fellow bloggers, but have never felt like I’ve had much of a chance to do so.  I’m really excited to have the opportunity over the next few weeks!

If you’re also participating in Blogging 101, let me know in the comments and I would love to check your site out!

    You know, I’ve never participated in one of these. Since I’m struggling to get back in the swing of blogging, maybe I’ll give this a shot. Where do you find the blogging 101 info?
