Am I a professional?

So my first blog EVER, I'm going to try and keep up to date with the 23 Things for Professional Development, but as we all know, work does get in the way.

I'm doing my Chartership and thought why not find out more about what is out there, I've never looked into doing blogs or blogging so this is a first for me, and I hope to learn a lot from this experience. I'm also feeling a little static in my job, I got my degree/qualification 3 years ago and nothing since has changed, although I'm doing a little maternity cover which is great experience. So, I'm hoping this will spur me on to do something more.

Although already I see that my first downfall will be trying to figure out how to tag something!! Now I kind of feel like my mum using the "Internet" for the first time!! Wish me luck!


  1. Hi Emma, I am a librarian myself, working at Munich, Germany, and am experiencing with blogging for the first time, too. Looking forward to your blog! Does your blog title indicate you are a knitter? I am so it would be lovely to find other people who knit and work on 23Things -
    best wishes Caroline

    1. Hello Caroline,

      Yes I'm a knitter too, although I've not done a huge amount of knitting yet, mostly scarfs or baby blankets :) Have you knitted much? Now I'll have to look at your blog too.

      all the best,

  2. Me too, that is I knit although not at work and this is my first blog.

    I am puzzling away at the first two things (been v busy as I suppose everyone is so no excuse), and actually think that thing 3 could have come first as I could have put more thought into my blog.

    hey ho,


  3. Hi Emma. I don't know if you remember but we met at a Sirsi cat group meeting a while ago. Anyway, glad to see a few other cataloguers on here and I shall be following your progress with interest. Good luck!
