04 Oct. I have been actively using the social media for the last eight years – from the peak-Orkut days. Then I was attracted to blogging. I started two blogs on blogger.com (blogspot) in 2005. Later I found blogspot was a bit kiddish stuff, a bit difficult to update and customise. I switched over to wordpress; and I continue to be with wordpress for the last six-plus years.
On wordpress I have three blogs: 1. http://www.richardrego.wordpress.com (personal blog which covers almost every aspect of society and personal life – specially focusing on media and society)
2. http://www.staloysiuscollege.wordpress.com (more for my former college – a formal news update blog)
and 3. a backup for my personal blog.
This time I found this: an attractive offer from the University of Oxford: 23 Things for Research for Michelmas Term.
I do use blogs, facebook, twitter, scribble, tumblr, linkedin, etc. But I hope to use this opportunity to know a bit more about social media for research purpose. To share my ideas and research initiatives with a community of researchers, and also network with and learn from them.
