This a place for me to monitor my PLN as it evolves.

I removed several of the people on twitter that I was following for no apparent reason.
I added Morgan, Skip Via, reclaim hosting (might be good to stay on top of what’s going on here), and Keegan Long-wheeler.

At Catherines advice I need to add my sons Vincent and Clifford to my PLN
Here is a link to my newly updated PLN visual.
Through this class I believe that I have learned the value of having and maintaining an active PLN. I found that even though I stopped tracking who I was following on Twitter (above), I was adding to it as I found people and topics that were relevant to what we were talking about in class and that the more connections I made, the more that popped up.
One ares that I feel I could improve on is sharing. I find that I only share as required for classes and work at this point. This is in part because I often find I am overwhelmed with all the information that I read on twitter and on other blogs. The amount of information and feedback can be intimidating at times, especially if you find yourself disagreeing with the what people are saying. I feel ,myself becoming more confident in my opinions and thoughts so I believe that in time I will become a more active participant in this area.
I was very unsure of having a blog at the start of this whole process, but I am definitely seeing the value of it now. I like to think this is something I will keep up with after graduation, because I see it as great place to make, create and foster connections with people. How it evolves after graduation, I suppose I will just have to wait and see.
