What's At Play Here? #CMC11



I have been thinking over the last few day's and certainly since I found out how this class works, how to make my grand entry as a MOOCer. I have even taken some time to peruse the blogs to become more familiar with the voices that reside here, in the hopes for inspiration. 














Needless to say, I am still thinking, hence the question; what's at play here? Or better yet; what's at work here? Can one be at play and work at the same time? (hmmm...maybe I am onto my first idea for a blog entry). 













Anyway, I just wanted to make my introduction (I was really bothered by my inertia). I hope it is very temporary and that I will be back soon with a more inspiring post. 

Until then I will ponder the question of what's at work or play here and hopefully will come up with an answer before my next visit!

My suspicion is it is a procrastinator/over-thinker (shhh! don't tell anyone). 

Side-note: I Googled procrastinator vs over-thinker and found some really interesting images and articles. I am sharing some of the images (inserted throughout) as I think they are quite funny. Maybe, discussing some of the articles will be of interest as well. Until then...your thoughts?

Welcome to CMC11 from one procrastinator/over-thinker to another! It takes some time to get comfortable with the course. I've been participating in CMC11 since May and I didn't find my footing until mid-July. I guarantee that you will stumble across some aspect of this course that will inspire you and start your journey. As for me, I discovered Scoop.it, a fabulous site dedicated to the curation of ideas.

Hi Brandy, Thanks for the kind words and encouragement on this. I also appreciate the tip on Scoop.it. Needless to say, I am thoroughly embarrassed that it took me so long to get back to this and to at least acknowledge your feedback. To say I have been deluged by setbacks and unplanned distractions is an understatement. But here I am hoping to 'stick' more than my toe in this time.
