Thing 2: Investigate some other blogs

Well so much for the new me, I'm behind on the course already. I have enjoyed reading some of the other participants blogs, surprisingly many of the ones I looked at were written by young people. I thought social media would be part of everyday life if you are 23 years old.

I am looking forward to the next part, when I signed up for a blog the hardest part was trying to think of an imaginative name. I now know that that is what probably captures people's attention when it comes to chosing who's blog to read.

Blogging: Thing 1

Hi Everyone
I became aware of the 23 things for CPD course only last week and thought it was about time I got up to speed with the world of social media. Although I have heard of blogging, twitter, facebook, linked-in etc I have to admit I am clueless as far as using them goes.

I'm sitting here finding writing my first blog a rather terrifying experience but after reading some of the other new posts it is nice to know I'm not alone.

I am a Charterered Information Professional and have always been committed to CPD, lately I feel I haven't pushed myself enough and as my old schoolteacher would say I 'could do better'. Hopefully this course will help me broaden my knowledge of the wider profession and equip me with some new tools I can use in my personal and professional development.

Till next time then ....
