There's a point in time where you just gotta take the plunge. I took the plunge in November 2009 and joined the Nebraska Learns 2.0 initiative. I completed 23 Things, and the process was very rewarding. I blogged on each Thing--you are welcome to go back and read my posts.
Nebraska Learns 2.0 is still going strong. And, now that I work at the hosting organization, I keep up with what's new but, alas, don't take time to complete the Things.
At this point, I've worked in a public library for 3 years and now a state library commission for 3.5 years. I'm halfway through my master's program in LIS. It's time to look forward and take steps to become more professional. 23 Things for Professional Development will help me do that.
What's fun for me is completing the tasks alongside others on the same path (example: TraceeTee). I know of several classmates who are participating. We'll be supportive of each other and celebrate the others' successes. That's how I best learn.
And, so, I humbly submit my assignment for Thing 1: Blogs and blogging.
