Diversity Eats to the Finish Line – My reflection, lessons learned, and future plans

Welcome everybody to my latest post for Diversity Eats! For the past three to four months, I’ve treated you all to some of the more diverse ethnic food scenes in the Philly/South Jersey area. Exploring different restaurants in the area, finding out opinions from others on what the ethnic food scene is like, and going over some recipes along the way. However, like all good things, everything must come to an end. And Diversity Eats has reached the finish line.

I started this blog with the goal of expanding and informing people on the diverse eatery scene in the South Jersey area and there has been plenty of ups and downs. Some post I’ve gathered for you all have been easy and smooth to report on. While others were tedious where the process was annoying and drawn out. I guess that’s the price you can pay for trying to do Journalism work right?

I learned a few things while working in the online journalism stratosphere. I learned how hyperlinks are basically wormholes to new information, certain ethics to journalism as a whole such as learning how to acknowledge and correct mistakes accordingly, how to properly form captions, I also learned how my own smartphone is a great utility piece when going into the field, and among others, I learned how SEO is key to online journalism.

I’m glad that these were some of the few tricks/lessons I learned throughout these months and I thank my cool, well dressed, collective professor for that. I will utilize these tricks to my own personal blog as well. Speaking of which, below are my 5 favorite post from this blog.

As for what the future holds? For now I’ll be walking away from this blog. It was frustrating to keep up with it and I honestly believe I could have done a better job with it.

However, there isn’t a need to go “what if” you know? I’ll be able to learn from my mistakes and plan ahead for future. I may be back on here to post something once in a while. Possibly a few times within the summer but no promises.

And with that said, thanks for taking the time to view all of the post from Diversity Eats! Drame out.
