End of the week and I have made myself sit down and concentrate on cpd23 this morning, although I read all about Thing 4 at the beginning of the week, I think it is telling that I haven’t done anything about it until now.
Twitter – I have heard a lot about how useful it can be professionally, seen several examples, and have been meaning for probably over a year to get round to setting up an account. Not that I have anything to say (hence previous reticence on starting a blog!). But somehow, it all seems like a big jump into the unknown. Well, set up my account this morning @Darklecat and even made my first tweet, though it felt rather contrived. Have a feeling I will be lurking for quite a while before I get into the swing of things. This is one of the reasons I signed up to CPD23 – to make me do these things! It is strange why it felt so nervewracking to be doing something that millions (?) of people do every day, I’m not completely computer illiterate or anything, but I do feel I need to push myself to keep up. Joining Twitter felt like walking into a big party where I didn’t know anybody, so I am currently hanging round the edge with a glass of wine in hand, trying not to look like the weird girl who doesn’t have any friends. Spotted a few people I knew in the distance (so am now following them – and now I feel like a stalker!).
