Exercise #2
ESTABLISH A PERSONAL
LEARNING NETWORK (PLN)
A personal learning network is an
informal learning network that consists
of the people a learner interacts with
and derives knowledge from in a
personal learning environment. In a
PLN, a person makes a connection
with another person with the specific
intent that some type of learning will
occur because of that connection.

Exercise #3

“Some of these conversations ended in a sale, but don’t let that fool you.
The sale was merely the exclamation mark at the end of the sentence.”

Key Takeaways
OWN YOUR DOMAIN
Social media platforms come and go, but the website(s) you own will still be
there when the latest fad fades into the past. Establish a relevant hub and keep it
up-to-date, linking all of your online activity back to it. Keep it simple; if you can't
manage it yourself, you're trying too hard.
GO ANALOG
From relevant industry conferences and events, to relationships with your local
booksellers and librarians, never underestimate the value of the in-person
experience. Attend readings, browse bookshelves, seek out fellow writers,
publishing professionals, and communities of interest; maintain a physical
connection to the world around you.
BE YOURSELF
Engage on your own terms; don't try to be someone else or follow somebody's
marketing template. Know your strengths and leverage them; know your
weaknesses and minimize them; find opportunities to challenge yourself and
broaden your horizons.

  • 5. Exercise #2 ESTABLISH A PERSONAL LEARNING NETWORK (PLN) A personal learning network is an informal learning network that consists of the people a learner interacts with and derives knowledge from in a personal learning environment. In a PLN, a person makes a connection with another person with the specific intent that some type of learning will occur because of that connection. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Personal_learning_network Guy LeCharles Gonzalez | loudpoet.com | @glecharles #getread 11/13/13

  • 7. Key Takeaways OWN YOUR DOMAIN Social media platforms come and go, but the website(s) you own will still be there when the latest fad fades into the past. Establish a relevant hub and keep it up-to-date, linking all of your online activity back to it. Keep it simple; if you can't manage it yourself, you're trying too hard. GO ANALOG From relevant industry conferences and events, to relationships with your local booksellers and librarians, never underestimate the value of the in-person experience. Attend readings, browse bookshelves, seek out fellow writers, publishing professionals, and communities of interest; maintain a physical connection to the world around you. BE YOURSELF Engage on your own terms; don't try to be someone else or follow somebody's marketing template. Know your strengths and leverage them; know your weaknesses and minimize them; find opportunities to challenge yourself and broaden your horizons.
