My online life really began back in 2006 when I participated in the very first '23 Things' course offered by the School Library Association of Victoria and the State Library of Victoria. I was a newly appointed primary school librarian feeling my way back into almost-full-time work after the birth of my children and I was looking for an 'in' to get myself up to speed quickly. The self-paced course guided me through many things I had heard of (like that new-fangled thing called Facebook) and managed to turn me off others – like Second Life. I slipped my moorings and let myself sail into the sea of social media and online tools – and never looked back.
