I’m taking an online course called Blogging To Build Your Author Brand with Kristen Lamb. I have been following her blog for over a year and have gained so much from her posts that deciding to take the course was a no-brainer. As much as I am enjoying the course and the assignments what has truly amazed me are the friendships I am making with the other writers in my class. The class communicates mostly through Twitter and Facebook. We started bonding in part due to technological challenges: those versed in social networking helping those who were new to it.
I thought I would share a few blogs from my fellow students that speak of today’s tech world:
- You WANA Call The Help Desk?
- Pushing the Boundaries (or An Introvert’s Attempts at Living Like an Extrovert)
- Nook or Book?
Are you new to blogs and social media? How has the technology changed your life in recent days/months/years? Are you baffled by the fact that you use your cell phone to take pictures, record video, keep notes, write letters (email), read the news, play games, attend a [Twitter] party, watch videos and listen to music?
