In the beginning, the goal of my project and the reason why I chose to discuss Global Warming was to raise awareness of Global Warming. I hoped to spread awareness and advocate about the negative impacts of the long-time rise in temperatures around the world. Global Warming is an increase in the Earth’s surface temperature which is causing dramatic temperature changes around the world. Together, I hoped that I and my followers can learn and prevent Global Warming to ensure a better future. My project has come a long way and has been successful in more ways than I could have imagined.
My project has received attention to extents I never have expected. One of my biggest accomplishments included 25 total views between one week distributed throughout multiple posts. This also consisted of 6 visitors, 6 likes and 25 views between April 15, 2019 – April 21, 2019. Another success is exemplified by my second best week with an alarming 19 views and 14 visitors.
In addition, on February 26, 2019, I reblogged an interesting post under the title of Evidence that humans are responsible for global warming hits ‘gold standard’ certainty level. The original publisher liked my comment shortly afterward. Iowa Climate Science Education has 609 followers (currently), posts regularly and is very invested in Climate Change. I was flabbergasted and proud when they noticed my content.
Throughout this project I learned about the process of creating a successful blog. I learned how to have a larger reach and how to promote my posts on social media and the benefits of doing that. I learned a lot about Global Warming and the importance of Climate Change. If I had to complete my project all over again, I may focus on discussing how we can help prevent Global Warming from manifesting any more. I would also discuss more facts and significant information about Global Warming and its impact.
