Well there was only one post last year. But I'll post mine too, just in case. It's https://twitter.com/CCarter_Art

Hope to meet some new people.

Kidlit Good News / Re: 109 Rejections Later: New Agent

Thank you! I think what it means is they do everything in-house: film rights, foreign, licensing, development, and also that they are agents of non-traditional formats, like YouTube personalities.

Congratulations, Stephanie!!! So excited for you! I noticed that New Leaf calls themselves a "nontraditional" agency. What does that mean?

Another way you can use hashtags is for fun/silliness. You could type in a word or sentence that is unlikely to have had other people use it, but is funny in the conversation you are having. Like #IDontUnderstandTwitter. Or #WhyCantIEatChocolateForAllMyMeals. You can also use them for "apologies." #SorryNotSorry Or #Sorry #NotSorry.

I do this often! :)

I've been using Twitter quite a while now and have grown to love it, but the hardest thing at first was not feeling awkward if no one responded to a Tweet. Basically, you have to be comfortable talking to yourself, I think. Don't worry about retweets or Likes/Loves...and don't overthink it. Use hashtags in any/all of the ways people have mentioned in this post and don't worry if a particular Tweet doesn't get any activity.

Our new theme hasn't been playing nice with the database, 217mom, :! and we decided to wait until Josh has whipped :whip the theme into total submission before we do the changeover. The alternative (fighting a Blueboard full of glitches and problems) just wasn't acceptable.

Yay to Josh!  :applause
Speaking of-- wasn't the board supposed to be OFF this day? The scrolling warning went on for days, then vanished. But the board was ON and no mention of another shut-down.

Very informative, but also intimidating. (Speak for yourself, 217mom  ::) )

There should be a course for just this: Hashtags and Their Place in Your Virtual Life  :hiding
