In my opinion, books are the best accessory.
Continuing to feature online resources on my blog! This month I am featuring my favorite secret tool, Hootsuite. The one that helps me organize my thoughts, save a load of time, and also protect me from looking a little nuts when it comes to sharing favorite new resources. This past month, I learned about numerous resources but still my favorite newer online friends, for the month are: Only2Clicks Styling Librarian Site, Smore, and Evernote. Here are my ongoing online resource friends: Facebook Styling Librarian page, Twitter, Smore, Only2Clicks, Paper.Li, WordPress, Diigo, Evernote, HootSuite, Pinterest, Smore
Hootsuite Featured Video:
Basics: Follow different Twitter streams on one screen, Facebook streams, and schedule resources to share through various venues. Watch to see the specifics!
I’ve decided to create a
weekly (let’s be realistic here) monthly video sharing a favorite online resource, the first one was Diigo- link here!
Now, what are my next goals?
Create a video about Smore!
Continue to experiment with Evernote. This month I tried out logging special thoughts about the books I was reading. This was quite convenient because I use Evernote on my laptop, school pc, iPad, and iPhone, so when I am reading, I have something quickly available to log my thoughts on. Quite helpful when I’m entering my weekly reading thoughts on this blog. I also am finally making friends with Siri on my iPhone. Shall share more on this later. It helped quite a bit to make Siri understand that I was talking with an “American” accent vs. the one it misunderstood me with prior… Again with language barriers!
Again I repeat: Overall, I feel like trying something new online is refreshing and my past skills make the transfer to a new program easy to grow accustomed to. Like dancing, you have basic moves down, so when you are introduced to new ones the basics get automatically incorporated in…
