Thanks for the recommendation on LinkedIn, the exploring of which led me to here! Great post- I think your point about developing a personal connection to your virtual PLN is essential. That’s why I enjoy when people share bits about their personal life as little supplements to their professional sharing.
Also, while I wouldn’t dream of going back to school right now (perhaps in the FAR distant future) I really enjoyed reading your post, and it made me miss the fun we all had at SILS. Luckily, since you are in my PLN, we can keep it going.
See you this summer in person and probably later tonight on Twitter/FB etcetera. : o)
