Since the semester is wrapping up, I want to make my blog as popular as it can be. According to PageTraffic, the five most searched words are hotels, Facebook, YouTube, Craigslist and Facebook login, so I have decided to write a blog post including all of these keywords in hopes that more people will come across my blog before the end!
When my parents came to visit for parents weekend they stayed in a hotel about 20 minutes away from the campus. The relates back to experiencing Syracuse because when they were here, I stayed with them at the hotel for a night. It was weird to see Syracuse from a different perspective and actually get to experience something other than the 708 acres of campus. I witnessed some crazy things such as people standing in the middle of the street and leaving their child in a stroller outside of a store. Also, I went in the pool and hot tub at this hotel which is something that I can’t really do at school either.
Facebook can tie into my blog theme of alternate means of communication. Social media is a great way to connect with other people because almost 2 billion people have their own FaceBook login and the digital factor allows for long distance communication. In fact, when I was in Canada it was how I talked to all of my friends because texting internationally cost a lot of money.
I work for a tax company and my boss told me to create a Craigslist post for an old desk set that she wanted to sell. I took pictures from every angle of the beat up wood desk and matching file cabinet and chair and spent so long writing a description of it. It never sold.
Lastly, there’s YouTube. YouTube is the final word that represents both of the blog themes. Everyone is allowed to post to YouTube which can stand for an alternate means of communication too. The creator of the video is allowed to say anything that they want to and it is available to anyone with internet access that can find it. There is also a feature on YouTube that allows people to comment on videos and spark conversation. YouTube connects to “experiencing Syracuse” too because you can look up various videos from events, games and past students’ experiences here. One of my favorite videos is: https://youtu.be/etuUmEZMlmE, something that I can really relate to since I live on the Mount.
Hopefully, this post will attract some more readers and if you happened to be click-baited to this page, then welcome, feel free to look around.
