Make The Web Work For You – Workflow reflection

28 May

I check my work Twitter feed once a day during school recess. I have a personal (professional) Twitter account but I rarely use it as I find it too overwhelming, there’s always so much to read/look at when I do check it.

I usually check Facebook in the afternoon/evening when I have time and I get a lot of links/articles to read through there but if I don’t have the opportunity to read them there and then, I rarely would come back to them and only occasionally try to remind myself. I would usually send myself an email with any links I think I should read later, however these often sit in my inbox unread. I think that social bookmarking would definitely be a better way of storing these links but I am still unsure if I would ever come back to them at a later date.

I bookmark my most regularly used websites in my browser at work but usually have a few extra bookmarks that I don’t come back to.

At work I get some email digests of relevant articles, and I try to find the time during the day to get through these. I find that I don’t have a lot of extra time to be checking for new information online so I like getting email digests so that I can filter out what’s interesting, and I prefer things delivered to me rather than having to remember to check things. When I need to remember to do something at a particular time, I set up calendar reminders to pop up with a message.

My husband regularly suggests that I get an iphone next time I upgrade my phone so that I can sync my calendar with his but I find that my home paper calendar is much more visually graspable, especially when dealing with the schedules of my two primary school children as well as my own. I also keep my work to-do list on paper at my desk as I don’t really need it to be mobile and I prefer it visually.
