Caithness Work Placement – Publishing B
28 Jan 19: What a journey it has been just to start bringing my work placements together and the logistics of email conversations. I have spent about ten days researching and planning what dates I can do; what I can do at the venues and various other pieces to ensure I get the fullest experience in the North of Scotland. So, one thing that I can reflect on is that planning and logistics is a time-consuming process! I am super excited to be going to a great venue in March in the delightful North (see map below). You can have a little sneak peek here if you want to know more about Caithness Horizons http://www.caithnesshorizonsmuseum.com/
I also just signed up to their newsletter. If you plan a little trip to the North one day, it may be good to know the venue is there to visit.
Keep an eye out for further updates as I get more confirmations in the next few days.
Been rather busy with my interview out the way and have visited London on Friday 25th January for the Impress Publishing day. I got some interesting insight into Kickstarter and will be writing up about this to pass on to you all. I also helped Rhoda finalise the social media and if you see her post all the links are working and the facebook link is active for those who love to FB.
I updated my older blog entry https://blog.dundee.ac.uk/wps/2019/01/21/vaultedmarvels/ to show the move to “Vaulted Marvels” as we are covering a range of books in the archives and not the Brechin Collection only. Also, this morning I donated to the PayPal link as it is active to take any amount large to small! Paypal to me is the best option because 100% of the money you give will go to the project.
Rhoda is fully set as the social media mogul and my job is done in that area. I will now focus on my role in Caithness in March.
Rhoda’s update can be found here: https://blog.dundee.ac.uk/wps/2019/01/27/reshuffle-or-re-shuffle/
Well, it’s all rather exciting as small tasks start to bring together the pieces that will eventually make the whole.
Having helped Rhoda set up Twitter and PayPal, please look out for the facebook link to soon follow from Rhoda. Already the marvels this book collection holds will begin to start the transformation of the old into the new and I am rather excited to see this as I have loved working with the few images provided to me to set up the basics for Twitter. Speaking of Twitter this can now be located at www.twitter.com/VaultedMarvels. Also, if you have a PayPal you can be one of the first to donate any sum large to small via the PayPal portal at www.paypal.com/VaultedMarvels
Paypal is very easy to set up and once you have it you will wonder why you never had it all this time!
Rhoda is looking after all the social media and PayPal from now on, so follow on Twitter/Facebook for more up to date details on the Brechin Project.
Even more exciting for me, is that I have to now leave you and start to prepare for my writer’s interview on Wednesday with Alastair McIntosh www.alastairmcintosh.com
