Step 1 Choose to dive into the deep end. Getting started is half the battle.
Step 2 Start at your own pace and begin learning about a couple of new things. There is so much out there it can be overwhelming so take it easy. I would suggest reviewing these How to Videos .
Step 3 Enjoy it! Watch funny YouTube videos, podcasts, informative Slideshare presentations, read blogs, follow your favourite celebrity on Twitter. These will boost your morale and encourage you to dive deeper.
Step 4 Publish your own content! Everyone has a distinct flavour, interests and opinions. Get over yourself and allow the world to see how truly unique you are and what you can offer. Auravelia’s Facebook Auravelia’s Twitter Auravelia’s blog on Humber PR Ning Network

Tips Keep it real and use wise judgement! Be genuinely interested in others and they will return the love. Do not be afraid to be vulnerable. If you don’t define yourself, others will.
