Why a Blog Site With Lots of Content Will Help Me Get My First Full-time Job After College

Featured

Creating multiple blogs or websites is a beneficial use of time and resources for many reasons, and if you start at an early age, doing this will give you a great advantage over your peers in the long run. Having multiple websites for a variety purposes, covering multiple topics that you are knowledgeable in, can help you become known as a expert in a field. This strategy is called Name Identification Strategy, and with the internet being a primary source of employments today, becoming known as having an expertise in a certain area; that is, having your name be known in a certain field in which you excel in, is an effective means by which you can obtain a full-time job in that field.

A vast number of bloggers today master the skill of writing through blogging. While posting on social media platforms frequently may be considered a means of learning to master the skill, dedicated constant posting on a blog is one of the best methods of becoming an expert writer. Learning this skill early on is beneficial for one’s career, even if that career is not in the field of writing. Nearly all fields require people with this universal skill. Of course, you can always maintain a minimum wage job flipping hamburgers at a fast-food restaurant or stocking shelves at a grocery store, but without the skill of writing, the management and corporate levels of these business are out of reach.

The regular constant posting on a blog or blogs will help you master the skill of writing, and if begun early enough and kept up consistently for a long enough period of time, it can serve as a useful tool for college admission boards and future employers, among others. Simply writing on paper and doing nothing with your work may help you eventually master the skill of writing, but does not serve the double purpose of helping you obtain a job or a college education, whereas constant blogging does just that. Additionally, publishing your work to the internet for the public to read forces the author to write to the best of his ability, further helping him become an expert and eventually a master in a manner that no other writing method provides.

In conclusion, a blog site with a lot of content can help you obtain a full-time job after college in several key ways; making yourself known as widely as possible as an expert in a certain area in which you are knowledgeable is the most effective of these, and building and maintaining websites is an inexpensive means of doing this. Additionally, having a well-maintained blog site on which you consistently post quality content that you write will eventually help you master the skill of writing, a skill that itself is universal and needed for nearly every field of work today. Mastering the skill of writing from an early age will give you a great advantage over your peers, and if your work is published on a blog site, this mastery is even more beneficial.

The Benefits of the Ron Paul Curriculum — Persuasive

Over the years, the most common methods of homeschooling have not changed much. Since homeschooling became popular during the late 20th century, many curricula have entered the market, and the majority of them are very similar. Textbooks. Similarly to public schools, many homeschool curriculum producers simply publish textbooks that are somehow created for the different audience. This ordinary method of learning works for some, but often leaves students bored and parents searching for something that will interest their student while still teaching them everything they need to know, perhaps while having fun at the same time. There must be some solution to this persistent problem, but where?

Homeschool curricula comes in many different shapes and sizes. A basic curriculum-in-a-box is a popular form of homeschooling, as is simply reading and writing with no curriculum to follow as a form of education, a more traditional approach. These forms of homeschooling may work for some, but the downsides of such methods often outweigh the benefits. For example, one overall benefit of homeschooling is the vast flexibility it provides. An issue with homeschooling with textbooks, notebooks, and binders is that it is difficult to transport, making it less flexible than it would be if were, say, on a laptop. On another note, a second downside to homeschooling as a whole is that school often takes just as long as it does at public school, sometimes lasting longer than that. Textbooks with no interaction from an instructor often bores students and may cause them to lack motivation. Additionally, Common Core is often used in homeschool textbooks.

Finally, there is a solution to these dilemmas. The Ron Paul Curriculum is as easy as register, buy the courses you want, and turn on your internet capable device. For that reason, the RPC is portable, allowing you to school virtually anywhere. The courses are affordable, costing less than many homeschool textbooks. At most, courses take approximately 1 hour per day, adding up to just 4-5 hours total of studying per day, allowing more time for extracurricular activities and the pursuit of hobbies and the like. Thousands of interactive video lectures with slideshow presentations keep students engaged and interested in the content of each lesson. Plus, the Ron Paul Curriculum is completely free of Common Core.

In addition to meeting the dilemmas presented above of many traditional methods of homeschooling, the RPC offers weekly writing assignments in each subject, adding up to hundreds of essays throughout a student’s entire school career. Courses are offered for all grades between Kindergarten and the end of high school, with two business courses and a personal finance course for high school. Four years of literature based English in high school are available, as is a full year’s worth of Public Speaking, and a WordPress course that is free for members of the site.

Conclusively, many parents are still searching for a curriculum that has little parental involvement, keeps students engaged, and still teaches them everything they need to know at the same time. The Ron Paul Curriculum meets and exceeds these requirements, and is portable enough to travel around the world. The curriculum’s structure allows for a student to stay behind if need be, but additionally allows for students who are above and beyond average to finish high school as early as they wish. You can find the Ron Paul Curriculum at this link. Sign up today and begin homeschooling with a certain satisfaction and feeling that you are getting a great education as you never have before.

Is It Important For Students to Pursue College or Other Higher Education After High School? — Persuasive

The generation of young people born between the years of 1996 and 2010 is called Generation Z. Many believe that this generation does not have much of a potential, as screens and the public school system have caused a dramatic shift in the way people of this generation, and those beyond it, think. They are lacking in motivation. These days it is far too easy for teens and young adults to make end’s meat by sitting behind a computer screen or some other type of job that didn’t exist not long years ago. Why go to college? they think as they continue to make barely enough to pay the bills. This generation is satisfied with working as little as possible in order to make enough to keep living. Higher education is a necessary part of any career. Let me tell you why.

By not going to college or some other form of higher education which may specialize in a certain trade, young people quite possibly miss out on a successful career in something that may actually interest them. For those who are too interested in screens and video games to pursue any kind of higher education beyond the requirements of elementary and high school, there are a number trade schools and college majors that, if someone like this were to attend, they could very likely make a great living and become quite successful, if motivated enough. It seems that Generation Z does not care enough about it’s future; the number of those attending college falling in recent years is just one of many signs of this.

If you are still within your elementary/high school years, I encourage you to look into college or other higher education beyond high school. What are your interests? Take those, and use them to your advantage. Make a career out of it. This is the key to becoming successful. College is an important part of making this successful career. Study now, and take CLEP tests to test out of some courses. Then focus on majoring in what will best benefit your career of choice. For those of you in high school, look into colleges now while finishing your studies so that you can make the best choice of higher education following your high school graduation. The earlier, the better. Start now, and you have the best chance at succeeding.

Is It Better to Determine One’s Own Ideas of Right and Wrong or to Follow the Crowd? — Action Steps

*Note: The views and opinions expressed in this article are NOT mine, but are rather simply examples. They have been written for the sole purpose of completing RPC English 8 Lesson 144. My opinions are found in the first of the following viewpoints:


Determine Own Ideas of Right & Wrong: Determining one’s own ideas of right and wrong as opposed to following the crowd is much wiser, as following the crowd often results in mass foolishness. One person’s poor perception, if the proverbial crowd is followed, may result in countless others following the same. Those who do follow the crowd do not think for themselves. It is simply crucial that people think for themselves, especially when it comes to determining right & wrong. Christians have biblical standards to follow in this area. Read the Ten Commandments for a good idea of what is right and wrong.

Following Crowd: Following the crowd is a means by which one can escape from having to put much thought into one’s actions; if the proverbial crowd is able to do well by following the ideas of everyone else, it seems then to be the best way to think. This is the simplest way to determine the correct ideas of right and wrong, simply because culture as a whole, being the crowd itself, will approve. That is ultimately the deciding factor when determining right and wrong, so simply following along is the safest option. Take a look at what any large majority online, for example, has to say on right and wrong, and follow the leader.

Would It Be Better to Raise the Driving Age to 21? — Action Steps

*Note: The views and opinions expressed in this article are NOT mine. They have been written for the sole purpose of completing RPC English 8 Lesson 143.


Yes: Raising the driving age to 21 would resolve many problems in today’s society, such as drastically lowering the number of car accidents and irresponsible drivers on the roads. In addition, the threat of having drivers who are too young to transport other minors without an adult present is no longer present, as those under the age of 21 would not be able to drive at all. It is therefore an ordinance worth implementing, as the youngest of drivers would likely be more responsible this way.

No: The implementation of a higher minimum driving age would not solve any of the problems that it seems like it might at first thought. One reason young drivers are irresponsible and are often involved in collisions is that they are obviously inexperienced behind the wheel. This would be no different for 21-year-old new drivers. By keeping the driving age at 16, where it is in most of the United States, drivers who obtain their license as early as possible will have five years of experience by the time they are 21.

Should Unhealthy Fast Food Products Be Sold With a Warning Label? — Action Steps

*Note: The views and opinions expressed in this article are NOT mine. They have been written for the sole purpose of completing RPC English 8 Lesson 142.


Yes: In order to protect unknowing people from becoming ill or having other potential health problems, it is imperative that a general warning label system be implemented on all foods that are proven to cause harmful side effects. The good taste (or lack thereof) is no excuse for Americans to continue to consume these unhealthy products. It is necessary that the FDA step in and save citizens from themselves, as the fast food industry only grows, and illnesses increase.

No: The results of putting into place a law enforcing a warning label on unhealthy fast food products would be a society in which the federal agency called the FDA is able to decide who’s food is healthy and who’s is not, causing that food which is not healthy by the government’s standards to be greatly unfairly cause many companies to be put out of business. Therefore, allowing this to happen would be a bad solution to the problem of unhealthy fast food products.

Should the Government be Able to Restrict Content on the Internet? — Persuasive

Featured

Since the internet’s inception nearly 30 years ago, there has been an enormous abundance of content published to the vast virtual universe called the web. In recent years, the content on the internet has become more and more censored. If something is not politically correct, or if it for any reason does not align with what the government or certain online platforms want the general public to see or hear, it is removed. This phenomenon has become increasingly worse over the years, and is now a regular part of society today, with such websites as Facebook, Google, and Twitter censoring content on their platforms daily. Not just content that is inappropriate or that for some other understandable reason does not belong on the platform is being censored; anything that the government does not want to be put out there is removed.

The censorship of content on the internet is a violation of the right of free speech, an inalienable right that cannot and should not be taken away by anyone. Sadly, many countries today restrict people’s rights to speak freely, and one wrong statement or expression of one’s thoughts or feelings can land someone in jail. Restriction of content on the internet is a form of this very lack of freedom of speech and expression. The worst of all forms is when the government itself is the one restricting someone’s free speech. The government is often behind the censorship that takes place on online platforms, and the unconstitutional restrictions on online content, being bad in an of themselves, are made yet worse by the fact that it is the governing body of the land committing this offense.

Censorship of content on the internet by the government, or by the online platforms that are controlled by the government and that conform to its unconstitutional ways in an effort to stay alive and make money, can affect anyone who would like to make a statement. Those who speak out against tyranny and various politically incorrect causes are shut down. This freedom of speech being taken away globally is obviously a problem. The question that remains now is, what is the solution to stopping the government from censoring content on the internet? In order to solve a problem, you must find what is causing it. Who gave the government the ability to control content on the internet in the first place? Is it in the government’s legal power to do this?

The answer is that the power-hungry government, which was put in place for the purpose of maintaining a free society, has taken its power beyond the limits and taken it upon itself to control all aspects of culture and society, the internet included. The government’s requiring licenses for virtually everything is one example of this. The internet was an independent invention that the government has since taken control of. Throughout history, particularly in recent decades, there have been countless examples of this controlling takeover taking place. That being said, the only way to stop the government from censoring people and restricting content is to rid the government of this power. The internet is not the government’s to control; it is for the free use of the people.

Should the 2nd amendment give citizens the right to own assault weaponry? — Persuasive

Not long after the founding of the United States of America, a series of amendments to the law of the land, the Constitution, was passed in 1791. This document, called the Bill of Rights, contained 10 amendments. The laws implemented by the passing of the Bill of Rights included the 1st Amendment, which grants citizens the right to freedom of religion and belief, and the 8th Amendment, which prevents excessive bail. However, in the current day and age, many people, including the President of the United States, have disregarded this document and its amendments and sided with tyrannical laws that rid the American people of their freedoms. This includes in the area of owning firearms, a right given to citizens in the 2nd amendment. Some areas of the country have outlawed them altogether. The topic of this essay is whether or not the Constitution grants citizens the right to own “assault weaponry.”

As a first note, “assault weaponry,” the term that is commonly used today in reference to the class of firearm being discussed in this article, is an improper term, and should be replaced with “sporting rifles,” as this is what a so-called assault weapon or assault rifle really is. So, as I move forward with this essay, I will be using the proper terminology as opposed to that which was presented in the prompt. To begin with, a point that somewhat build off of my previous note is that the term is misleading and often makes people think that sporting rifles are bad, and should be banned or not allowed by the 2nd Amendment. However, the Amendment does indeed grant Americans the right to “keep and bear arms.” It does not say that citizens can “keep and bear arms, unless the government considers them to be assault weaponry, in which case these rules are out the window.”

In many states and territories of the United States, there are limits and even bans on so-called assault weaponry. These guns include the AK-47 and the AR-15. I believe that bans and limits on the sales of any firearms and ammunition to American citizens, who’s founding law states that the right to keep and bear arms is granted, is unconstitutional and is not right. With that said, I do not believe that the Constitution or any of its amendments grant the right to keep and bear arms with any kind of limitation. Thus, any such limitation or ban on any kind of firearm is completely unconstitutional. There are no exclusions for sporting rifles, whether the government wants you to have them or not. In conclusion, the Constitution and the 2nd Amendment to it grant citizens the right to keep and bear firearms of any type, without limitation. Any law or ordinance that goes against this is purely unconstitutional.
