I think I am finally settling into the idea that I am a blogger (not just a wannabe) and that people want to read what I blog. So I think I’ll start having a bit more fun with this adventure. Its been a gradual process, 18 months to be exact, but with encouragement from all sides, I am ready to make some changes.
First change has been the template I am using for this blog. I liked the original dark colours, they were a bit mysterious and made me feel a little on the dark side, allowing me to hide myself away in anonymity. But now I don’t feel the need to be anonymous, as I am doing things as a result of blogging that I wouldn’t have been asked to or felt comfortable doing before. The new lighter look of my blog is a reflection of this. Its also a lot easier to read!
I am also happier about starting to play around with things, so for example I have a link to my RSS feed at the top of the page and have updated my links – I have too many in my feed reader to put them all here, so I have just listed key ones. I have also included a feature that Kathryn at Librarians Matter put me onto – an Odeo Voicemail option. Click the link and as long as you have a microphone, you can record a voice mail message for me. I will then get an email to tell me I have a message and will go to Odeo and listen to it. Its free, cute and I hope its the beginning of new features (toys) that I will be able to use as I continue my learning journey. Hope you will continue along with me.
