I have reached the end of the Blogging Trail! I actually finished several days ago but haven't done the wrap-up "thing" as I thought a bit of time and distance might serve to make the view a bit clearer. So here is what I think....
This was a good exercise if for no other reason than to, well, exercise! My brain was challenged by all of this technology and I'm sure that I will use some of it, but not all. Many of the resources that we learned about are for those who are truely gung ho about a topic---many times a job or hobby. Me, not so much!
My biggest complaint was the lack of time to really get into each "thing" and use/understand it's many different pieces. I definately felt the pressure of time---perhaps because of all of the postings about the latest finishers. Now I know that we have 'til Staff Day but "if they could do it then so could I" might be the way I am thinking. So I just plowed ahead.
I honestly don't see how anyone could have competed this challenge without doing most of the assignments at home---I've had to work on this exclusively at home and I know that most of my co-workers are doing the same. Not a good "thing". Glad that I have high speed Internet or I'd still be sitting at work---or not getting this done!
And so, thanks to all of you for putting this together--It WAS fun, frustrating, educating and amazing! I would do something like this again---but let time do it's "thing" first so that my short term memory loss can kick in!
