Here are this month’s snap stories of personal learning for February 2019.
Every week and every month, I like to review these videos to see what I have been doing every day. It’s a great way to capture all my work and learning – and also to see progress towards my goals.
Every month I allocate an hour to review these daily videos I take on Snapchat and share these here on my blog. I use these videos as an online portfolio of my work – an online CV if you will.
Many of these are not shared across other social networks unless there’s something specific to that particular social media community I’d like to share. In effect, these are my own “sharing of my work out loud” videos and not for the purposes of marketing but rather of personal and professional development.
No specific details about any client work are shown here without their permission. If you would like to know further information about anything I mention in these videos, contact me.

My husband and I like to visit local pubs and restaurants to learn more about what’s happening in our area and tonight we visit the Sandbelt Hotel which has a fairly gruff exterior but we were pleasantly surprised what we found inside. We’ll be going back there again…

Exploring local co-working spaces because working from home by myself all day every day is doing my head in!
Wednesday 6 February 2019
Today I work out of a co-working space in Carnegie which just opened up and do a tour around there. I’ll be going back there because I noticed I need to be around people sometimes and working from home all the time with no one else to speak to except the cat and my husband was doing my head in. I then also take a swim at a nearby beach and give a history run through of the ship HMVS Cerberus which is now a breakwater and used to be part of the Victorian Naval Force at the start of the 20th century.
