    • 109. Be heard
    • 110. For a long while I just lurked in the background . I realized that to get the most out of my network , I had to add to the conversation . I had to be able to share my thoughts and opinions because what I put into this is what I would get out of it. Successful Teaching Blog by Pat Hensley aka Loonyhiker
    • 111. If I just sat around waiting for everything to come to me , I would be sadly disappointed . I think that is why some people have trouble with networking. They are(n’t) willing to put time and energy into its development and then wonder why it isn’t happening . Successful Teaching Blog by Pat Hensley aka Loonyhiker
    • 112. It takes time to grow a network, it’s like moving to a new town - You can’t expect to feel integrated immediately, but participate , contribute and you will settle and find what you are looking for. http://aquaculturepda.edublogs.org/2008/07/09/help-me-demonstrate-the-importance-of-personal-learning-networks/ - Comment from Mobile Technology in TAFE blog
