About This Blog

Welcome to my first ever blog. 

I’ve never felt the urge to blog before and to be honest I’m not sure that I would have opted to create a blog or posts if it wasn’t for this course.  The blog is a requirement for the Digital Humanities postgraduate courses at Maynooth University.

It’s not that I don’t have opinions to express, it’s just that I would rather sit down and have a chat, person to person.  That’s much more appealing to me than addressing an anonymous reader. I like how understanding can develop or emerge as people exchange ideas back and forth in a conversation.  Still, in for a penny…  – I’m willing to give it a go.

So, you might have guessed by now, and you’re right – I’m not a digital native!  It appears that I more easily sit in the ‘digital lurker’ category.  Call me sensitive, but I feel that there is a certain amount of negativity in that label!  Well I’d better get started if I am to set out on this journey.
