It's Friday and it has been an inspirational day for me. My team at work was discussing social media in the morning and their enthusiasm seemed like an encouragement that I'm not alone in this and should really embrace social media. This seems a very positive way forward.
I've always been wondering about my writing. Although I've always loved writing and wanting to write, it's always been in the more personal forms of letters and keeping a diary. Looks like I can't keep it that way for too long.
First of all, Andy Stanford-Clark, who came to give a talk at the Cafe Scientifique session I organised last month has now asked me twice whether I blog. I evaded the question once, but I think that's not the right attitude! So I've promised him I'll write.
Annabel Souter is another person I've met on Twitter who a few months ago, or maybe even a year ago, requested some writing from me which I managed to avoid. On reading her blog about her own writing I felt that I should be brave too and embrace this whole blogging thing.
So, if you are in the same shoes as me, click your heels twice and, just like Dorothy, let us fly to the land of super-writing. Just put pen to paper or fingers to keyboard and share your thoughts without fear.
On that note, I've also decided that Friday will be an Inspirational Friday for me. More of that later!
