In the beginning there was grad school. That ended in 2010. Now what do I blog about?

Great Pumpkin 2010

Now that grad school is done and I have FREE TIME! again, gardening is a priority. The fresh air, the dirt, the sunshine, the pleasure found in growing things from seeds. I am living it.

A group of us are engaged in a pumpkin growing content. We all shared in the seeds of a gigantic pumpkin from last year's harvest. We each took 3 seeds. Here's mine so far (top to bottom: 7/19, 7/13, 7/4, 6/15)

Why I Love HootSuite Today


I recently posted my 2,008th Tweet. I marked it as a special occasion because I started using Twitter in 2008. Of course there was a typo in that special tweet so the following post was simply #facepalm.


But I do love Twitter. It has been 2+ years of thousands of 140 character or less updates that have led to great working relationships with higher ed people (tweeple) around the world. And one of the reasons why my experience has been so good is because of HootSuite.

In the video below I proclaim my love of HootSuite and in particular, the 'show conversation' tool. There will be more of these screencasts. Stay tuned.
