This week I am feeling very in love with the Internet--and here's why.
1) Writing Conferences
Yes, indeed, with the modern Internet, writing conferences have become easier and more fun than ever! This weekend I will be attending and giving a lesson at a private conference with some of my closest writing friends through the wonders of video chat! I'm super excited, and I'll update you later with some selections from my lesson. (Editor's Note on 1 October 2016: This refers to the first ever session of Ch1Con, back before it became an official, public conference.)
Another online writing conference I will be attending is Write On Con, which is entirely virtual, focused on children's literature, and supremely awesome. It's right before I go to college--like, RIGHT before, so mid-August.
2) Internet Surfing Tools
By this, I mean Stumble Upon, a website where you select interests, and it'll pick websites all over the internet for you to look at. Totally fun and addictive, and a favorite of college students everywhere. I've found so much great stuff through this tool. See below:
I even discovered a new web browser: RockMelt, which has side panels of all your online social links and news websites. It's perfect for socialization hounds like me, and it's so far been faster than Internet Explorer, which I used for years. (Editor's Note on 1 October 2016: RockMelt no longer exists, but Chrome is a decent substitute.)
I discovered these and more online gems through the beauty that is Stumble Upon.
3) I Have a Blog
Enough said! Getting to create this website and all the blog content makes me way more happy than it should, especially since barely anyone's reading this right now. But I'm OK talking to myself, as it turns out. :)
See you all Saturday, and thanks for (maybe) reading!
