ms. Paula Bernal’s blog is the one i’m going to criticize. not criticize i guess? more like evaluate, to be nicer. hehe. hmm how do i begin? let’s start with the small details first. the overall look of the blog is so simple but in a nice way. it shows that she’s neat and nice somewhat like that. less-is-more personality is what i’m seeing upon visiting her blog. once i scanned her blogs one by one, i can tell that she really do blog and meet the required number of sentences. i like the fact that she puts effort in every blog entry she do. you can tell that she puts her heart in every single sentences she makes. i like how she tells her story. at first, it i was kinda lazy to read it because it looks sooo long but once i started reading it, i got hooked. i guess never judge the book by its cover. she thinks about everything she blog. another thing that i like about her blog site is she never limits herself to anything. she blog about anything under the sun from her date with her boyfriend to amy winehouse’s death and even Ninoy’s Legacy. one negative thing I can say is her blog is not eye candy. It is not eye catching to people who will view them. That’s the problem on blogs, it is not all about the content it is about the first glance. Yeah its unfair. It is rare to see blogs that are creative and eye catching but at the same time does not sacrifice its content and sense. In the case of miss bernal’s blog, she’s a good story teller which I truly admire but she lacks on executing it creatively. It lacks of spice. It was somewhat essay-like blogs. Moreover, the way she voice out her point of view in things is off the roof. You can tell as you read her blogs that all the things she blogs have sense. It is like she blogs because she’s required but she blogs because she enjoys it. you can tell that she is an intellectual person by the way she tells her story.
I like her blog entry “Five Simple Rules for Happiness”. It is light, fun, and interesting. After reading it, it was like I can reached happiness already. The least entry I like is the one with the title “why I don’t believe in luck”. Maybe because it is contradicting to my personal views. i will not explain myself in this blog because this is about the blog that was assigned for me. :P
Lastly, I noticed that most of her posts are about life that we make our own life. it’s the decisions we make that leads us to where we are now. She views things rationally or objectively. We’re somewhat on the different page but that doesn’t mean I’m only gonna make “lait” her blog. I should be fair to the works of other not because I don’t want to have enemies but because it is the right thing to do :)
Let’s clear things up ‘kay? i don’t wanna judge people ‘cause i don’t give a fuck. and my mind is in the state of sabaw mode so forgive me with my ramblings :))
