After reading beshy waps’ @Eunoia article entitled Evaluate your writing challenge! Would you dare? It made me stop and reflect about the real essence of evaluation. If you guys observed, evaluation is mostly present and needed in work and in school. And as I look for its meaning, the internet defines evaluation as “establishing a decision on the quantity or value of something (Oxford Dictionary).”
In work, evaluation is very necessary in order for us to monitor our performance- if either we improve or not. On the other hand, evaluation is very important also in school and it is usually known as assessment, wherein students will be assess in order to identify and know the capacity, knowledge and development of every students. I strongly believe that evaluation would be a great means in order to identify our weaknesses and strengths, as well as have an idea on how to deal and what strategies we need to do in order to attain our desired results or outcome.
Well, knowing what evaluation really is and its importance made me want to apply it here in my performance in readcash as well. I’ve been writing here for a month now and it is really the best month of my whole life. As the time goes by, I can also say that I somehow improved in different aspects. Joining this platform with no one to guide you is really hard and I need to start from a scratch (I think we all do).
Just like anybody else, I am not a pro-writer and committed a lot of mistakes when it comes to writing (but it doesn’t includes plagiarism). What I mean when I say mistakes are my grammatical errors, lame titles and nonsense contents. I am not a genius and thinking about topic every single day really makes me question my mental capability. I don’t even know what my niche is. I just write the things that come to my not-so-creative mind and also to express myself. Anyways, why I am writing this again? Oh right, the writer I mentioned in the beginning of this article gave this as my assignment which I gladly accepted.
Enough with storytelling and let us stop chasing around the bush. I will now start evaluating my wannabe writer self here in readcash. Let’s go!
Choosing a topic
Well, I can’t say that I really improved in this aspect since I am still having a hard time choosing the topic everyday. It’s not that I can’t think of any topic, actually I have a lot of things I want to write but I can’t just choose properly. But I am really doing my best to work on it.
Vocabularies and Grammar
I am really lazy to check my piece for any grammatical errors and will just publish it right away after I finish writing it. That is why; you can see a lot grammar error in my writings. Please forgive me with that. As for the vocabularies, I encounter a lot of unfamiliar words everytime I read articles from other writers and sometimes, I would look for its meaning but most of the time, I will just leave it that way. Familiarizing the word but doesn’t know the meaning of it. Shame on me!
Oh common! I pity myself so much. I am confident in using the right punctuations in my writings before but I am starting to doubt myself now. I don’t know if I am doing it right or what. I’ll work it out, I promise.
To be honest, this is the most difficult part for me. Will you believe me If I would say that thinking about my title will always be at the last? I am not good at creating titles that would capture the attention of my readers. However, if I would compare my old self from now, I am a bit more confident now.
Well, I am a bit confident with this one. Although, there are times that you will notice some misspelled words. Most of the time, it was just because of typographical error.
Well, I admit that I am not really that good in writing the content of my articles. There are times that the message of my article is a bit unorganized and confusing and I am really sorry for that. I am trying my best to improve this aspect.
Well, this is not a problem for me since I really love interacting with other writers. In fact, the moment I joined this platform, I didn’t write an article right away and choose to read and interact with other writers first. I just love meeting and building friends with other people.
The truth is not everyone will like your articles and would agree with you everytime. You have to be aware and be open for corrections from other writers. In my case, I haven’t experienced it yet and hoping that I would never experience it. But if ever it will come, I am very open for corrections. Please, just do it in a nice way. Lol.
Well, if I am going to rate myself from 1-5, wherein 1 is the highest. I would give myself a 3 and a half (if that’s acceptable). I still have a lot of things to learn and rice to eat before I could give myself a perfect rating. And I am willing to undergo and accept a lot of corrections for my own growth as well. You know, I believe that if you really want to grow as a person, you need to have a teachable heart.
