Hi everyone!

As part of my photography course, I have to track my development on a blog. The posts from September 2011 until January 2012 are part of a module called Project Management, for which I was required to work in a group of eight students to create an exhibition. The blog followed every step we took in order to create a successful gallery. The blog posts starting from September 2012 follow my final year on the course. I'll be documenting my research and analysis of my final year projects, as well as include notes of my Professional Practice unit - which prepares us for a range of post graduate options. Finally it also looks at a project called New Creatives, where I'll be working alongside an artists to help college students get more involved with art.

Social Networking...

The most important way of getting the word out about our exhibition is through social networking sites. I am in charge of both Facebook and Twitter and have been updating both pages on a regular basis. Because of the word limit of Twitter, it has been a bit more difficult to tweet. Therefore, the posts on Facebook and Twitter aren't exactly the same. In the end this is probably better because if someone follows us both on Facebook and Twitter they don't want to be reading everything twice! 

The posts on Facebook are a bit longer and a bit friendlier. I prefer Facebook to Twitter because Facebook gives people a chance to comment back on what I have said - it seems a lot more personal. I am slowly going through the list of blogs so that our followers stay interested in following us. I am almost through the whole list of blogs so when I finish that I will start posting people's personal websites. I need to make sure I keep updating both sites on a regular basis because we don't want people to lose interest! 

At the moment we have 30 people that have "liked" us on Facebook and we have 29 followers.
