Steps 1, 2, 3: I think this is going to be fun. I read the introduction. I listened to the tutorials.
I set up this blog. Please understand. I didn't grow up with computers. In fact, when I was in college there were no personal calculators (that's correct - calculators). We used slide rules. And really, that wasn't so long ago. Not that I don't like computers - the computer is my friend. This is just all new to me -- and I am quite excited about continuing with my life long learning.

Seven and a half habits: I noted that a number of people thought that accepting responsibility for ones own learning was probably the easiest habit for them. I would agree, but I think where I excel is in viewing problems as challenges. There's no question that life tends to throw curve balls at times and I've had my share. I've learned to avoid stewing by creating some sort of a plan to tackle the problem. Having said that, it may surprise you to know that where I struggle is in having confidence in myself. It wasn't always that way. I think it crept up with age. However, I am pleased to report that being accepted as a LIS graduate student and having completed 21 credits thus far has gone a long way to help. I am grateful.

And I am grateful for the opportunities to embrace technology because frankly I am not only not very knowledgeable in that regard, but also a little frightened. I want to be able to be confident, proficient and helpful to library patrons.
