    This year was our first #Twitter year!  I had been avoiding & dismissing Twitter mainly because I didn’t see the value of it.  And, with all the crazy #@RT, etc. I thought I would probably really mess it up and look bad… Well, thanks to the wonderful @TracieGCain & Naomi Bates @yabooksandmore and their Twitter Workshops, I was encouraged to try.  So, I began lurking, tweeting & chatting and haven’t stopped since :)!!! Because of my Twitter connections, I was able to host @Wandoo Planet and do several guest blogposts.  Also, I got a #sweet follow from #YardCrasher @ahmadandahmed 🙂  Looking forward to even more connections next year!  If you are not sure about Twitter as an Educational Resource, please give it a try!  You can just lurk, which really means “listen”, and watch other educators share resources & ideas.  Then, before you know it, you will be jumping in sharing as well.  Recently, I was asked to be one of the moderators for #txlchat next fall……and all because of #Twitter!  I continue to make valuable, relevant connections on Twitter and am looking forward to some great #txlchats.  Join me!

  2. Catching Up On This #Amazing Year!

    May 24, 2014 by 2TechSavvyLibrarians

    Just so you know, we are newbies at this blogging thing 🙂  Our blog is very new and we are learning the ins and outs through the University of  Hard Knocks along with the Trial & Error Method.  So, as you know with so much going on, it’s easy to get behind in your blogging and posting. We could either not bother with going back and just start fresh next year, or get busy and post some #amazing things that happened in our District this year.  Of course we decided to tell our Library stories.  It doesn’t matter if it happened today or a few months ago, it happened!  And that is what we want to encourage you to do – tell your Library Story.  I first heard this from an awesome Librarian @nancyjolambert.  If you are not following her, stop what you are doing and follow her on Twitter now!  Our stories need to be shared because they happened.  Let’s share our stories together!
