Go Super to Listen Go Super!

In the last 20 years, the internet has exploded with information. Everybody seems to have an opinion about something and wants to share it with the world. Blogs are one way that people have posted their knowledge in a public place and asked for feedback from others.

Whether you’re interested in cooking, traveling, making money, or finding true love, it’s certain that there’s a blog you can follow. If you have something to say, you can easily start your own blog, too!

There are a few questions to think about when starting your own blog. Will it be personal or professional? Will you be putting yourself out there and writing about your everyday life? Will you engage with the readers who leave comments on your website? How will you make your blog stand out among millions of online writers?

If you have a little time, a computer, and access to the internet, why not give it a try? Find a free platform, choose a URL, and then you’ll be ready to blog!

What does Gary blog about? And what blogs does Jessica usually read? Listen to today’s English lesson to learn about writing and reading blogs.

Gary:  I just finished writing something that I think that you would absolutely love, and I posted it on my blog.

Jessica:  OK.

Gary:  So this blog that I wrote about is about a company called Axial Theatre. And they have a Sunday reading series where all of these writers bring in new scripts, and all the actors grab a script and just read it and have some fun.

Jessica:  That’s so cool. You’re a great writer on your blog, I bet.

Gary:  Well my blog is all my personality, so I hope that’s fun. I don’t know if it’s great or not. I’m using this platform called WordPress.

Jessica:  OK.

Gary:  And it is so great because I can put all of these topics out there, such as acting, and I get all of this feedback from people.

Jessica:  That’s neat that you’re putting yourself out there online for everybody to follow and read all about your personal experiences with theater.

Gary:  Do you read any blogs?

Jessica:  I do. I read a lot of money blogs, financial-based topics.

Gary:  Really? Do you leave comments on there, too, and engage with all the other commenters?

Jessica:  I am actually a reader of the comments. I don’t like to post my own comments. Well you’ll have to share your blog URL with me so that I can check it out online later.

Gary:  I can email it to you tonight.

Jessica:  That would be awesome.

Gary:  Rock!

Gary tells Jessica about an article he just posted on his blog. Since he knows she’s interested in acting, he wants to share this information with her.

Jessica lets Gary know she wants to read what he’s written. Usually, she reads blogs about money, but she’ll look at Gary’s blog, too, as long as he sends her the URL to his website.

It sounds like Jessica is impressed that Gary is OK sharing so much of his personal life on the internet. While Jessica enjoys reading blogs and reader comments, she doesn’t really write anything. She prefers to keep her opinion quiet and not to stand out.

Do you follow any blogs? What’s your opinion about sharing information online?

I’ve almost forgotten. I did have a blog a long time ago. I translated song lyrics. Some people read my translations (about 10 per day)))

I do have  a blog but for me that’s not too important, why? That’s not the blog where I earn money from. I just like tar1ta  anytime I need anything I just search it on the web and access some sites.


tar1ta, I wonder why some people hide their real life? I thought no body cares about it. well, I’m here not cheat on people so whatever. I just wanna learn english anyway hehe

I’m quite happy having a little free time, a computer, and access to the internet, but why do I need to start my own blog if there are a lot of blogs I can follow?


When I need to know something about cooking or about finances or to read news about my favorite music bands etc., I just search it on the web or access some site.


Though I share a lot of information about myself on the I-net. Everybody who reads my profile knows where I live and how I look like. But I’m not a spy, so I’m not afraid of unmasking )))



By the way, what does “neat” mean?

I follow only one blog. The writer has the same interests as mine. And any time i read smth there i’m inspired a lot. It’s a woman who made her dreams come true. And she’s hardworking. If you’ll read her blog from the very beginning you’ll be blown away that all things that she wanted, all of them are done in some years. And that’s impressive!


I learn some good advices. And I’m really very thankful that she shared her life with others!

I don’t follow blogs but I do follow a vlog on YouTube, which in fact you might be interested. The vlog is called “Daily English Dictation,” and is for English learners to improve listening skills. The guy makes a new post almost, well, daily. I came across it about 6 months ago and it has had notable effects on me. The channel name is “dailydictation” - highly recommended.

I remember the first time when I started to write in my own blog. That was so exiting but I’m not in the mood for running a blog now.maybe I’m getting old :D . But I like to follow some blogs like E-Baby or some poetry and music blogs. News blogs are fine too since I spend so much time in internet than waching TV, they help me to keep up with news.
