My previous blog posts explored my media niche and my field map for this project. Having previously identified my media niche, I was able to then narrow down and determine which area of study I will be analysing this semester as part of my DA.
Identifying my media niche is a great first step, but it’s important for me to identify if there are any problems that may affect my DA and its progress. The main area of concern is recognising that my audience may not agree with my decisions/choices and that my potential audience may not actually enjoy listening to Ariana Grande related content. To combat this, I will be aiming to filter my content and target it towards Arianators as I will be identifying the different personas with the community to assist me identify how I fit in.
My Plan to Success
To stay accountable, I have created a checklist to be able to work through this DA step by step. As I complete my tasks, I will highlight the box green or red to indicate if I successfully completed or failed the task for that week. My plan is to gather the research weekly from my posts and my external research and make progress with each of my assignments weekly to reduce my stress as things become due.
The notes I will gather and present will be written and in video formats to be able to show my data and DA findings.
Ensuring my research remains ethical, I will be discussing my personal observations and discussing my own thoughts to ensure that I do not share any confidential information or research without correctly giving recognition to the creator/author.
