So, Mattie B. did this really cool thing last summer – requesting volunteers to monitor the #MTBoS hashtag one day per month. Simple enough – watch the tag, respond, retweet, redirect … just basically a welcoming committee helping new folks find their way.
Even better each month, I receive an email reminder.
And what happens if I miss my day or are unable to follow as much as I would like? Nothing. No big deal. I don’t get kicked out. I can pick up another day. It is all good – to give as much time as your are able.
Which is good because today was a day I couldn’t spend a lot of time on twitter interacting with others. By the time I check my email, I had already done final fittings on 50+ band uniforms, reorganizing (parts of) that crazy room – an afternoon with friends on the lake- last outing of the summer, a booster meeting and my supper, a bowl of cereal when I arrived back home at 9.
Its been a busy day, with a last bit of summer relaxation. I spent a bit of time on twitter, but it is past my bedtime folks and I didn’t want to skip out completely. Some time is better than none.
- Thanks Mattie B. for organizing this. I have read many, many new blogs and been able to help connect people with similar course assignments, etc. I am excited to do another year. It keeps my mind afresh.
