My First Blog Post Ever


Welcome to A Life of Learning and my first ever blog post! I am starting this blog because I am preparing to participate in #OpenLearing18 and thus I am trying to be more…open. Being a private person, there is a big part of me that would prefer to simply stay off the grid, and up until recently, I have tried. (Just ask my friends who have finally stopped hounding me to use Facebook!) However, my second career of being a research and user experience librarian has brought me to more fully understand that learning occurs everywhere–through experiences, people and across all sorts of media formats. I am excited to enter into this new experience with #OpenLearing18 in order to learn about new ideas, new ways of learning, as well as new ways to become more open myself by participating with open technologies. And the journey begins…

  1. Sherry, I share your reluctance to join in things like Facebook and blogs. I have been on Facebook a while but mostly to follow a few family members. I am more of a lurker than an active participant in things like this. I look forward to sharing with you as we explore outside our comfort zones.
