I have decided to participate in the 23 Things project, run by the Bodleian Libraries in conjunction with IT.
23 Things is a self-directed course focussing on digital technologies. there is some good stuff coming up (you can read the full programme here), I am looking forward to presenting information and building an online brand in particular, as well as using images.
This post is for Thing 3 (am I the only one who thinks of Alice in Wonderland at this point?). I have already said above the weeks/things I am most looking forward to and I have been checking out some of the other participating blogs (I hope this will drive up traffic to my blog!), this one in particular is worth a look:
I use Twitter already (and try to resist simply retweeting my favourite cat picture) and LinkedIn – but I am sure I could use the SMARTer. I have been fortunate enough to be able to link up with a few terrific contacts in my industry via social media (being noticed from retweeting, following blogs like this one) and hope to continue that.
I also hope to become more technically competent on WordPress and improving the aesthetics of my site.
Here’s to a fun 23 things!
