CPD23 Thing 3: keeping me current once I'm out there!

I have just finished setting up my new profile on LinkedIn and it's got me thinking.  How many tools do we really need to advertise ourselves in and how many are duplicating the other?

Do people keep a mental list of all the things they're signed up to (e.g. LinkedIn, Twitter, blogs, etc.) and make sure they tick off each one whenever personal information changes?  I am a bit of an organisation freak so I would ideally like one tool that I use to store and publicise all of my professional information.  Why do I need to spread myself across all these tools?


  1. Congrats on getting on LinkedIn. I find that my profile is a work in progress.

    You make a good point, I think! There are so many places to be "connected." It can be both fun and overwhelming! *sigh* In time, my favorites have risen to the top. The others, I don't worry about too much.

    Good luck with cpd23!


  2. I like LinkedIn and before I discovered Twitter I used it a lot. I need to get back into it a bit more. I find the discussions really interesting and tharen't limited to a small number of characters - although sometimes maybe they should be!

  3. Thanks for your comment Lesley. I've come to the conclusion that what I need is a website that's just about me!!
