For those of you in the know, I’ve finally set up a Twitter account.
For those of you who aren’t aware of Twitter, I’m now writing brief updates (no more than 140 characters…them’s the rules) and providing various EduLinks throughout the day. You can find the Twitter box to the side of the page.
Regular readers will have noticed more sporadic posting than usual. Still 2 or 3 regular posts each week, but a lack of EduLinks. It’s all because I’m preparing for the birth of my first child. Woo!
So rather than feel overwhelmed after the birth, I wanted to arrange provision for TheUniversityBlog. I thought the best way of doing that was to prepare loads of blogging topics, start writing about a zillion posts, and do it in the time I would usually sort out EduLinks posts.
That’s why Twitter seems a good idea. I can keep you updated outside of standard blog posting, and I can post over general links as and when I discover them. Let me know how you feel about it as I go on.
My Twitter account is at http://twitter.com/universityboy and you can follow me (subscribe to my Twitter feed) there or simply check the side of the page here on TheUniversityBlog.
