I enjoy sharing a quick list of the learning and leading (and some fun) “things” that are capturing my attention, sparking my curiosity, or pushing my thinking. I love reading Barb’s versions as well! I would love it if you would play along by adding the things you are loving this week in the comments section.
This week, here are the things I am loving:
Firefighters: I live in Southern California, and though I was not directly affected by all of the wildfires that broke out last week, they still impacted me. The pictures were frightening, the idea of arsonsists disheartening, but the bravery of firefighters… outstanding! During 100+degree heat, with 9 fires raging across our county, firefighters from all over came to fight these fires and save homes and lives. I know I speak for so many when I say THANK YOU!
Twitter: I have spoken of my love of Twitter before. This week, I love that Twitter helped me get immediate information about the SD wildfires quicker than any other outlet. I also love that a Twitter chat with my colleagues sparked some recent tweets by them. In addition, I continue to be pleasantly surprised by the connections I make through Twitter. Whether I’m tweeting about blogging or my dissertation or social justice, I can find a colleague near or far to expand my thinking in new ways. I’m still trying to convince others (colleagues and professors, most recently) to find their own professional value in Twitter.
Feedly: I was very sad when Google took away the Reader feature. I thought my favorite daily blog reading would disappear or get lost in the shuffle. Once I made the transition to Feedly, my sadness disappeared. It’s been a long time, but I still love how easy Feedly is to use.
