Hi everyone! My name is Ms Geraldine and I am an English Teacher and Curriculum Specialist at Lil’ but Mighty. In one of my recent blog posts, I shared a writing exercise on opinion pieces.
This exercise is suited to those of you who dislike coming up with your own fictional stories, and prefer to engage in writing that is rooted in your real life. Opinion pieces allow you to express your opinion about a particular subject in a straightforward manner. Oftentimes, the pieces are persuasive too, in order for you to convince your reader to agree with your opinion. If you are interested in finding out how to write opinion pieces, do give the blog post a read, as I share something called the OREO structure which helps you to express any opinion well.
Today’s video, on the other hand, is about what you can do with your opinion pieces after you have written them. After all, opinion pieces are meant to be read by others in the hopes that they will be convinced to agree with your thoughts. So some of you may be wondering: where can I share my opinion pieces so that more people will be able to read them? Or perhaps, where can I gain confidence about sharing my opinion? Let’s take a look now!
And there you have it! Two possible online platforms for you to use as a means to share your opinions with the rest of the world. I hope you have fun exploring both Letterboxd and Goodreads. I am sure that both websites will help you grow comfortable and confident about sharing your own opinion pieces to a public community. Furthermore, you can also use both platforms as a record or diary of the books you read and movies you watch, since you can refer to your reviews anytime you wish! Happy writing, and I will see you soon!
