Journal 01: October 7, 2008

So I’ve decided to blog. It’s something that I’ve always wanted to do but never had the time or energy to figure it out. Since one of the assignments for this course is to engage in a new learning experience, I finally have the excuse I need to explore this new form of communication. Tonight, I began doing research about the process of blogging, and I feel a bit overwhelmed. It’s seriously like learning a new language. There are words like Category Cloud and Platial MapKit, and there are even words with dots in them like del.icio.us, as if learning the words themselves wasn’t difficult enough! At any rate, I was able to read an introduction to blogging on the Internet, and I signed up for my very own WordPress account under the user name of ThirtyGirl. I’m going to use this blog not only to learn the process of blogging but also to explore my own conflicting emotions about “celebrating” my milestone birthday. I’m excited about the opportunity to get started, but I feel overwhelmed with everything there still is to learn. I hope this digital immigrant can assimilate quickly!
