Blogging for beginners

As I reflect on my blog assignments I have seen myself evolve. I started off not knowing anything at all. And now i have taken in so much information and i’m still in the learning process and refining the skills that i have learned. Understanding the basis of Rhetoric helps to better understand content creation. Over the semester I have grown to enjoy writing and I’m conscious of how I’m being portrayed through my work.

Here is my first blog ever on Rhetoric!

When I first began to write about the topic it was hard for me to grasp it. I had to go over the concept many times before I could fully understand it.

Its all about the audience and what will engage the readers but also reflect you as a content creator. Its easy to write what you want to say but we need to keep in mind the rhetorical situation. Everything is important. And it needs to also be professional. And intertwine text with images. This is what creates great content.

Over the semester I realized that I’m more of a creator than an editor. I have the vision but not so much the skills to fix it up. I have never been good at revising anything. I’d rather leave that up to the editors.

Overall the advice I would give to beginners is to make sure you understand your audience and that its always changing. You always have room to improve and make revisions.

Food Reviews

Munchies 420 (sandwiches american)

After seeing their segment on the TV show Man vs. Food my sister and I knew we had to try this place out. So we rounded up a group of our girlfriends and went on a mini road trip to this yummy jewel. Although it was ducked off on a small street in Sarasota, Florida, giving off a grunge look this restaurant was heaven to our mouths at the late hour of 3 a.m. or should I say early hours. Either way it was exactly what we had expected. We did not get the “Fire in the hole” wings which were seen on the show, but we did try the Fat Sandy! The Fat Sandy is a foot long sub roll consisted of 2 cheeseburgers, mac & cheese, chicken fingers, Mozzarella sticks, onion hoops a.k.a. onion rings, and spuds a.k.a potatoes! That was literally a mouth full! The quality of the food was amazing. nothing taste frozen everything tasted super fresh. Cant wait to go back!

Old Salty Dog- Siesta key (seafood)

Stumbled upon this restaurant with family while looking for a spot to have dinner after a long day at the beach. Located at the end of the village it was our last resort since everything was about to close for the night. As we browsed the menu we were able to see that an item had been aired on the TV show Man vs. Food and decided to try it out! Although this restaurant is known for its seafood we ordered the Salty Dog! The Salty Dog is a hot dog dipped in beer batter and deep fried to perfection. Served in a bun topped with onions, mushrooms, sauerkraut and bacon! This was a hot dog right out of heaven!

This city is known for its resorts, Amish community and even its connection to the Ringling family. Sarasota is especially known worldwide for its quality of quartz-white sandy beaches. Lido Key and Siesta Key separate the Bay from the gulf near Sarasota.

Siesta Key holds the reputation as one of Americas Best Beaches. In 2011, expert Dr. Stephen Leatherman also known as Dr. Beach, voted it the  No. 1 beach in the U.S. based on meeting a certain criteria.

The Tourist Experience 

Although Sarasota is known for its beaches its also known for its Italian style culture, The Annual Sarasota Film Festival, and the Ringling Museum just to name a few.

From the vibrant art scene to the many outdoor activities, you will never get bored. But one of my favorite things about Sarasota is the dining experience from exquisite to down right sloppy, there is  a wide variety to choose from.
