Week 2 Panic

I'm a little bit behind the rest of the class, but I'm diligently working through the assignments in an effort to catch up.

I found that I'm struggling to process all of the information that is suddenly available to us. Currently, I have 243 entries in my Goolge Reader feed for this class alone, including blog posts from other participants, Diigo posts, YouTube and Vimeo uploads, not to mention the conversation happening on Facebook.

With all these connections, I feel wildly without a sense of direction. Which link do I follow? Which conversation do I jump into? Which rabbit hole do I go down?

Thank goodness for Lisa's video, Week 2 Panic. I feel much better about it all. Instead of trying to read everything put out there, I feel more freedom to pick and choose which bits of information are most useful to me personally.

So to that end, I decided to focus on the assignments this week and not so much on the conversations.


  1. The conversations are there any time you feel a need or desire to look. There are so many involved. Focus on self and work outward. The wonders of blogs and comments can step beyond a structured time flow. You can pop in when you happen upon it-- just like I am doing now and I am enjoying a random selection. Hang in there-- it is a wonderful journey.

  2. Thanks for the encouragement, Claudia!
