CPD 23 (Thing #5 & #6)-Reflective Writing & Online Networks


The CPD 23 Thing #5—Reflective Writing
I'm participating (albeit tardy) in a program for current professional development. Thing #5 is to consider reflective writing online. It is essentially reviewing the experiences we've gone through, evaluating them through reflection, and using it to develop where we go from here—not just in future actions, but for character development. This is a practice I do often in my writing.

The CPD 23 Thing #6—Online Networks
I am active on facebook, twitter and linked-in, all recommended by CPD 23, but have not been involved in some of the other online networks mentioned, mainly because the others were more for librarians than the rest of us. I teach social networking in seminars, and don't believe there's just one right way to do it. For me, I've found my most social network is on facebook, and my most business network is linked-in. Twitter is somewhere in-between. I have about 6250 contacts total at this point, and it grows almost daily. I love the balance of getting to do business and pleasure all in one place!

Hi Kathy! This is off subject but wanted you to know how helpful you are to me over and over again! I am now nervously putting together a query letter to my local newspaper to write an inspiration column and your tips have been a life saver. Thank you so much.
