23 Things for Digital Knowledge

I just registered for this self-paced course for digital and online skills, initiated by the University of Edinburgh, see https://www.ed.ac.uk/information-services/learning-technology/social-tools/23things

So. The question is: why did I do this when I should already have an 'okay' level of digital skills, being a learning technologist? The short answer is: I'm on a mission to get into a more regular blogging habit. I still find it quite difficult to write a blog, and I am in awe of people who manage to write down what goes through their minds in an uncomplicated, personal yet competent fashion. I still find it really difficult to stop agonising over words and ways of expressing things. Quite often, I resort to photographs, not only because a picture says more than a thousand words, but rather because that's so much easier for me. But even with photographs I often need to take my time. Hence my 'Blip' photos only come once a month rather than every day. For those who don't know: Blipfoto is a photo journal site: https://www.blipfoto.com/, Very much worth exploring further. Here's the link to my 'blipjournal': https://www.blipfoto.com/lilabowie. Of course, I also run a 'one photo a day' diary on my mobile. The app is called 'Day One Classic' (there are follow-ups, but I like the simple original version). And in fact, so far, I did manage to add an entry every single day for the past 3 years. The reason why this one works so much easier for me: it's private! And now I'm going to publish this slightly inconsistent entry without agonising over it ...
