This is one of the most recent tweethethons I hosted for #gigatownnsn and it was a ball! Probably because over 8 people were in it for the whole duration. There was a prize too, kindly donated by the FLiT team from NMIT. Here’s the link to the Storify site. Continue reading
Hmm, how does one start looking for online communities?
Well, I thought, if it’s going to take up a substantial amount of my waking hours to participate in online communities, then they have to be highly relevant, interesting, beneficial and ‘chilled’.

“Discovering my personal brand”
This week’s task for SCM501 is about having a personal [online] brand.
I’ll try to address the following items but I can’t guarantee I’ll succeed in explaining it all in one blog post!

In other words, it has to be earned.
- explain what your ‘mantra’ is,
- how you decided on it
- what else you need to do to be comfortable with your ‘brand’ and
- how you might use your blog to start taking control of it.
