A Fool of Myself / Blogging / Social Media / Technical Writing

Oodles and Oodles of Fun (and Craziness), Oh My!

Sheesh! This has been a whirlwind week. Lots and lots and lots going on. All of them awesome. But none of them allowing me to sit down and think and write even though all of them are blog, Twitter, web development related. What a catch 22. Let me share a few of them, so you know what’s going on.


As many of you know, I’ve sort of dove in with the Springfield Bloggers Association. Mostly ball picking upping, which I’m happy to do. I love blogging. I love bloggers. You all know this. I hope that’s one of the reasons you read me nearly every day. Anyway, I’ve been at work on the SBA’s blog for a week or so, and I met with Andy Cline last night to discuss the blogroll and other possibilities for the group. The site is ready for visitors (but be patient, we’re still tweaking a few of the features/design elements), and if you’re in the Springfield area, I encourage you to submit your blog to our blogroll. If other local bloggers help promote SGFblogs.com and help it grow, it could quickly become a hub for bloggers in Springfield. We don’t know what that exactly looks like yet, but that’s why we need lots of bloggers to participate and help shape the group and site.

Project Hawk

Linden and I finally wrapped up our Twitter help guide (code name: Hawk) this week, and it will be published on our blogs starting Monday. A bulk of today will be spent getting my posts ready. We decided to split the four posts between us, Sarah, Linden, Sarah, Linden, so we can share the traffic. Once we’re done publishing, we’re having my husband design a little ebook for us. Chris is helping me with another top-secret project next week that has to roll out on Thursday, so he’ll do the ebook after that. Truly, this has been one of my favorite collaborative writing projects. I really haven’t done any outside of school, and group school projects are always rough when you’re the overachiever. I always got the fuzzy side of the lollipop, so to speak. Anyway, collaborating with Linden has been super fun, and this project counts as my first international writing project.

Continuing Ed Classes

The third project that’s been crazy consuming is completing applications and proposals for a few continuing education classes I’d like to teach at our local community college. Of course, they’re blogging related. I have three blogging classes–beginning, intermediate, and advanced–outlined, and I have a few social networking classes outlined, too. The classes are for the summer, and I need to get on the ball and get them out the door, so they can be reviewed before the summer schedule is wrapped up and mailed to the community. I hope there’s some interest in them. I love helping bloggers work on their blogs. (And I could use some extra cash.)

So my blogging may be a little scarce for the next two weeks or so. I’ll try to get in a few updates here and there, but don’t worry if I’m not around. I’m here. I’m checking in. Just not writing too much. Oh, yeah, and then there’s Easter and I’m going home to hang out with my folks for a few days, and there’s not much in the way of Internet speed there. I just stay up with my mother until 2 AM talking every night.

Anyway, have a great weekend! And if you’re in Springfield, stay warm. Snow is coming. (But that’s a blog post for another day.)

  1. Bring your laptop and I might share my aircard, so you could go where the speed is faster if needed. 🙂
    It is much faster upstairs than in the basement.
