Conclusion Paragraph


I must say, it is thrilling to open up a blogging tracker and notice that in the past four weeks, we have gained over 200 unique views, an unprecedented accomplishment! Our greatest thanks to those viewers that make this possible- along with sending queries and comments to my email. A small note: it doesn’t hurt to leave them here as well!

Now we commence your conclusion paragraph. Remember that this is your final paragraph, and you should end it with (as this is an informative speech) an interesting fact or idea.

Example: Interesting Fact/Idea:

A recent poll taken shows that 65% (CNN-derived from University of Minnesota) of adolescents today get money from their parents for their personal usage. This means they may or may not have had to work for it, and may or may not have even earned that much money in their entire life. Remember: blogging and writing contests help keep your skills up, especially over the summer. Blogging lets you express your opinions, no matter the style or content. Writing contests also offer similar opportunities for exposure and experience. You can also be paid for both.

A brief recap:

In the last paragraph, you might notice that I didn’t include a connecting sentence, supporting detail, background information, or any of the sort. Why? I didn’t need to. Connect your paragraph to what, exactly? To the fact that blogging lets you write about what you wish, and is generally not monitored? Or what about a supporting detail, and background information? In this speech specifically, I made sure to finish up the paragraph quickly and with an “informative” statistic. I tried to extend the paragraph earlier, but it was excessively repetitive and lost my own interest, in all honesty. One thing to remember, bloggers: if you lose your own interest, you’ve definitely lost your audiences’.

As we conclude this week’s release, you may have noticed that there is evidence of an inspirational speech in it. Talking about blogging and writing contests aimlessly as a simply informative speech is doable, but rather boring. In this case, I tried to appeal to you with money, to keep you interested. A paragraph that I cut out because it was too inspirational and not informative was:

Call for Action’ Statement:

So the next time you’re on the internet, talking with a best friend or wishing you had a possible career or cash to donate, spend, invest, or otherwise just simply have, stop and think. Because the solution could be on that very page you’re looking at. Writing contests and blogging could be your key to adolescent success. All you need to do is to have the ambition and curiosity, and you’re already there. Thank you.

Note that if it were an inspirational speech, I could easily add the last paragraph and few more details to switch it around fully to one.
Thanks for reading, and I hope to see you all next week!
