This semester was one of the harder ones in my academic career. However, I’d like to think that I’ve made progress, not only on my project but on learning the ins and outs of digital public history. I’ve learned that creating a website means nothing if no one is visiting it–especially if no one is visiting it. You have to look inward to see whether what you’re doing appeals to the public–otherwise, it’s essentially just shouting into the void. Last semester, I was scared of people seeing what was on my website/blog/project, but now I’ve realized that I can’t learn any more if I’m not receiving any feedback.
