This was Great!

This was a fun and interesting class for me to take. I knew nothing about blogging until I took the class but after a while I realized how simple and fun it was to write what you think about.

Mrs. Walker (a.k.a Tina has been very easy to work with) and this made it a good experience. I just moved to Grand Island a couple weeks ago so it has been hectic but it has been good for me to check out the MPCC site and see what was going on back at home.

I would encourage everyone to do this that is interested in writing because it is very free and open about what you want to talk about. You can choose the subject and just run with it from there! You can’t miss with this course and the instructor!
