It’s been a longish journey, it may not seem that way since the dates for the blog posts in this series are in May but if you see the date of this post, then it’s been a long time.
The reason for this was because I was while I had finished everything back then, blogging about my experience alongside felt time-consuming to me. I think I couldn’t get the balance quite right with doing the project and blogging since I was doing quite a lot of work for the project and then blogging about it. This caused me having to recall my steps and type them down and eventually I stopped blogging.
Also, the start of the project was going really well, I was learning about twitter scraping and interacting with large data sets (for me, at least). However, I started to get a little bored with it as it was going on. Perhaps it was on the easy side and I didn’t feel like I was learning anything majorly new.
To resolve the blogging issue, I’m going to try write about what I did on paper and then transfer that into a blog post. I’ve found this way quite efficient when writing personal statements, cover letters and etc as the paper is on hand and I don’t have to turn on the computer to write about what I did.
As for resolving the issue of doing an ‘easy’ project. I’ll be thinking of some other projects and hopefully start on them soon. So watch this space!
