Hello Judy

I'm amazed it's 20 years as well. How did I get to be this old?! Anyway, earning a living through writing was a combination of luck and taking a big leap to just have a go. I suggest you try and get a few things published in subjects where you have some inside knowledge. From a quick peek at your user page, I see you obviously have a lot of interesting experience - you must have some great stories to tell. Or use WikiEducator as a place to experiment and to learn from others. The Masters in elearning that I am hoping to start is at Edinburgh University but there are lots of similar ones. I offer coaching for people who want to brush up their writing skills for work, but I'm afraid I have to charge for that. Here are a couple of sites that might be useful:

Good luck

Instruction Day 8

Hi Jane

Just trying to complete the activity for day 8. Your user page looks good. Tell me what to do to become a wikineighbour - it looks like I've missed something along.

Hi Miems

It's me again. Just seeing what happens if I reply to you here. Do you get a notification of my reply - or do I need to go to your page for you to see it? Jane

Hi Jane, Wondering about that same question too. :) By the way, the content on your user page is quite good. Wish I had such clear ideas as to what I want to do after this workshop. Oh, and personally speaking I think Open Office is indeed a match for Microsoft Office. It takes a while to adjust, but Open Office provides you with what you need, minus the shazam (not necessarily useful) of Microsoft Office tools. I have also tried eXe and I liked the experience, because it's a pretty straight forward authoring tool that lets you, easily and quickly, create your own content. --alexgfrancisco 20:34, 30 September 2009 (UTC)

Yes, I need to take a look at the WikiNeighbour model, too.

Jane, your page is certainly taking shape - ex!. Your background and work will be a perfect match for a community authoring system such as this.

Thank you for visiting my page. It feels good to start connecting up with people. I'm still trying to understand how the collaboration features work as that is what draws me to this project. ----Jane Brotchie 08:01, 1 October 2009 (UTC)
