Created in 2009 when I was in sixth grade. I used it as an outlet of creativity for my hobby of gaming videos. The videos I uploaded had little to no editing involved. Over the course of time, I added minor bits of editing to add some visual appeal to the videos, but not too much to take away from the content held within. I am familiar with some bits of video technology for editing and recording.
Created in September 2016, I use this as an outlet to express my interest in a specific category of literature, that is poetry. Each blog post is related to poetry in one or more ways and is posted on Sunday of each week. When I started, most of the posts were stanza analyses which translated the extravagant and difficult language of writers of old and new to common terms and words for even the most unenthusiastic of readers to understand. I have branched out to not only just do stanza analyses, but comparisons of poetry types, highlighting key poets, and videos of spoken word poets from across the nation.
Poetry Types Covered:
-A fourteen line poem that follows a specific rhyme scheme known as iambic pentameter. Sonnets are split into three different categories: Italian (Petrarchan), Shakesperean, and Spenserian, all named after the famous authors that made each one famous.
2- Free Verse:
-Free Verse poems follow no known rules and it is up to the author in how the stanzas and inner-workings are carried out. Free verse can range up from one to multiple stanzas and lines, any amount of a rhyme scheme, syllable count, and the line formation can be formed in a way in however the author wants to convey the idea of the poem
-Haiku is a form of poetry originating from Japan, a nation in East Asia. A Haiku normally has three lines of prose, with the first and third lines containing five syllables, while the second line has seven.
