As I sit down to write my first blog entry, I am once again feeling the same “uncertainty and apprehension” that I seem to experience at the beginning of each semester. I am certainly relating to the work of Kuhlthau (2007) who suggested that this apprehension/uncertainty is a characteristic of the initiation stage of the Information Search Process. I am still finding it hard to get my head around the way in which different elements of this unit link together, but need to ensure that I slow down a little and look at the big picture.
I am feeling quite confident in being able to interact with the various technical aspects of writing a blog. I have previously written a blog in a small group as part of the TL study, but feel quite comfortable in using the Web 2.0 tool myself. Having used Blogger before I have decided to have a go at “wordpress” as suggested. I love all the themes available in terms of presentation, and found I could waste quite a lot of time 🙂 simply picking a theme. (anything to avoid the real work)
