Live Blogging will help me become extra passionate and extra emotional… If, for example, I were to be live blogging about a music performance, I would make unnecessary comments like, “You messed up at this part,” or, “You look gorgeous I might cry!” Live blogging is pretty exciting, and I feel like a majority of the world partakes in this phenomenon due to Twitter and Facebook. People can post short statuses and updates about anything they are doing, and it is, in fact, a form of live blogging. Live blogging does bring out the best and worst in us. Live blogging is basically our thoughts being uploaded on a social media site to make it official.
The positives of live blogging are quite grand. People get updates and feel like they are a part of the story. People can contribute. It is exciting to learn about different topics. Some people might be missing the VMAs or a TV show, and if they don’t mind spoilers, they might catch up quickly on the happenings in a matter of minutes. Live blogging keeps everyone engaged and updated.
The negatives of live blogging are the spoilers. If people want to physically sit down and watch a show, then they should stay away from live blogging. There might be too much. Everyone constantly updates all the time, and there might be too much information of different opinions. Which shows that not all live blogging includes true information. Some information could be made up, just to get more readers.
All in all, I feel as if live blogging is a great thing. It seems fun to constantly update my feelings about a specific topic. I show so many emotions watching award shows and my TV shows, so why not share it with the world? It’s great to be updated every few minutes, especially if the certain news that is getting live blogged is crucial.
