Well I’m very happy to discover that I can use the WordPress app offline as I’ve just had to turn off the router due to the loud thunder and lightening. It’s probably time to put away the technology for today but I decided to grab a moment and update my blog. This is the first time I’ve left the main computer today apart from to eat, I started to complete some extra marking for the exam board and it took me 7 1/2 hours to finish it after which I should have come off the computer, went and had a bath or done any number of other things that needed doing. But….I logged in to to check twitter and discovered that there was a twitter chat for the new mooc edcmooc which is starting on Monday. So I was hooked for another couple of hours!
I’m almost up to date with the course materials for etmooc, the only one I have left to watch now is Advanced Blogging – maybe I’ll get around to that tomorrow. This week I practised using some new social curation tools, I’ve been using Diigo for a while but I started to look into some of the ways to organise the bookmarks I’m saving by categorising and tagging. I also started using IFTT more and set up a rule to send everything that I save to pocket straight to Evernote. Now the challenge is to find time to go back and read all these gems that I’ve saved to pocket and Evernote!
Sometimes it’s hard being such a geek…where will I find time for my real life?
