Why am I doing This?
I love the internet. It's a great research tool, incredibly useful etc, addictive and until now, anonymous. I have never got to grips with social networking. I can't see the point, I've been trying twitter and facebook but all I seem to do is see snippets of conversations and photos of people I hardly know. I can't engage and I can't be bothered with it all. However I am at the beginning of my career in librarianship and I know this way lies the future so I am biting the bullet. I'm a bit scared of blogging (hence the name blographobic). It seems self indulgent and arrogant but I am also afraid I could get addicted. I am a library assistant in a sixth form college. We are just getting Moodle and I am hoping the library will be involved in this. I am very interested in the ways web 2 can be used, but I need to overcome my own misgivings. This is a first small step.
