Replied to Update: Creating and managing a lifestream as an Early Career Academic by an author (Linking Learning)

And so, the left-hand turn that I spoke about earlier is this. I will maintain this blog, but I will also maintain the Tumblr blog, and it is here that I will record my lifestream. I donโ€™t expect anyone to be particularly interested in the lifestream โ€“ it really is a personal curation of bits and pieces that I have found interesting โ€“ but if you would like to see what it looks like, feel free to check it out at Finding the connections โ€“ no sign in is required. If you are on Tumblr, please feel free to follow! Although Tumblr gets a bad rap for dodgy and questionable content, used like this, I feel it is another creative and positive space that can be incorporated into my PLN.

Well done Kay. I think that you have conquered what I feel is the biggest challenge, the workflow. Even with all of Chris Aldrich’s suggestions, I have followed the path of manual til it hurts. I have always been unsure about depending on IFTTT.

I have documented my workflow here, although it is probably due for an update. I have also taken to using emojis to break the information (and feeds) up.

Liked An Outline for Using Hypothesis for Owning your Annotations and Highlights by Chris AldrichChris Aldrich (BoffoSocko)

There are certainly variations of ways for attempting to own oneโ€™s own annotations using Hypothesis and syndicating them to oneโ€™s website (via a PESOS workflow), but I thought Iโ€™d outline the quickest version Iโ€™m aware of that requires little to no programming or code, but also allows some relatively pretty results. While some of the portions below are WordPress specific, thereโ€™s certainly no reason they couldnโ€™t be implemented for other systems.
