In case anyone missed them, here are the pieces of advice (or anti-advice in one case) from Twitter and the blogosphere that I found most helpful in the past few weeks.
First, from one of my most trusted blogs, advice on how to revise a messy first draft: https://patthomson.net/2016/04/25/tackling-a-messy-first-draft/
Some of the advice reminded me of my experience revising a chapter submitted about a year before, that I wrote about here.
And then Will Pooley’s blog post was just what I needed as I struggled over yet another job application: https://williamgpooley.wordpress.com/2016/04/20/the-advice-you-didnt-ask-for/
I love my research, even though it’s a topic that sometime other people sneer at.
I like social media: I think it contributes to my career, and I find it useful.
I applied for jobs people told me I would never get. And I got some of them.
Well I can honestly make the first two statements about my own work and life, so hopefully I’ll be writing similar advice about jobs in a few years time!
