I am far from having a "works-just-4-me" PLN. What I am gaining on my journey are reasons to build one. I am not always successful at set-up, but understanding the uses and helpful aspects has been a huge step for me. Even in the last few days, I have bookmarked many places on the web for later discovery. I continue to improve at the little skills to help me navigate. I'm building understanding for RSS and Twitter, especially as I have interactions with great contributors.
