Tools of the trade

First of I feel I am getting better at this blogging thing, if there is such a thing as getting better at blogging.

This one sentence already explains a lot about my behaviour towards tools and selecting them. I never expected to blogging, ever! Well that sort of changed over the course of the last 2 weeks. To me blogging wasn’t a tool I felt I neither needed nor wanted. But since the start of this course the need was suddenly there so the barrier was taken away, in this case the tool was chosen for me, but with the option of linking from another blogging site.

Since I knew nothing I relied on what given as the best tool and started using it, and whilst using this tool I haven’t run into any problems inconveniences or barriers that keep me from using this tool for my needs. But if I feel my needs exceed the possibilities of a certain tool, I’ll search for another tool.

This goes for any of the tools I use, for example youtube, I used to use it a lot but at a certain point I found out that if I want to listen my favourite type of music youtube just didn’t suit me. I really dislike making play-lists and I hate breaks in between songs. So I turned to Soundcloud where up and coming DJ’s post their entire sets which I can listen without brakes. I still use youtube but my needs diversified so my tools had to aswell.

So yes I select my tools according to my preferences, nonetheless if someone recommends another tool to me I’ll never be shy to try it, since having loads of possibilities to solve a certain problem is always better than having to stick to one or two solutions which limit the outcome.
