Activity 4

  • Find blogs that interest and engage you.
  • Share the urls in the forum or include them in your blog, explaining one or two things that you like about them.

Anyhow, I am back ( sort of ) and this is the start of my journey trying to engage again in the world at the beginning of a brave new chapter .. I still have stuff going on but I am determined to try and complete the final bit of my Masters in an attempt to keep myself sane … here goes
