Let's Spend More Time Together

I mentioned last week that I have three rhetoric classes this semester, for which I am very grateful. And I just got another reason to be happy about that.

I don't remember where I got this
photo; it was in my blog archives.
One of the classes is Rhetoric of Cyberculture (the instructor mentioned on the first day of class that she could just call it "Rhetoric of Culture", but she's keeping the old name for nostalgia reasons), and one of our major assignments is a comparison project; I'm meant to find two social networking circles, participate actively for a month, then write a paper about it. Now it just happens, thanks to the wonderful world of writing Tweeters, that I'm already connected to one such community. And for my second, I've chosen Goodreads. (My instructor strongly urged against using the blogging community as my second, out of concern that I wouldn't give an impartial report-- and she's right.) Result: I'm ahead on my homework.

So, here I come! I've already been eagerly scouring Twitter to follow all the bloggers who I already read, and I'm really excited to join the conversation much more than I have up to this point. So, if you want to follow me on Twitter (and have me follow you in return, of course), just hit that cute little button in the sidebar & we'll be connected. And likewise for Goodreads; if you're there, let's be friends!

There's still time, though-- is there another social site that I'm missing out on?

I'm on twitter and goodreads. However, I'm not active on twitter. But, I'll friend you on both sites.

I only remember to use twitter once a week and so I end up tweeting three things in 5 minutes, then go blank for the next week. Bad system...

That sounds like a really cool class. And luckily, I'm already following you on twitter so we don't have to wait for our every day blog posts to talk constantly ; )

Su said...

@Clarissa: Yay! I'm only just getting into goodreads, but the groups look promising!

@Charlie: I already follow you on Twitter, so... I know. ;) But the stuff you do tweet is fun.

@N.R.: What's crazy is how much it's changed since I got my associate degree... and that was just five years ago!

@JE: It is a cool class. The instructor is delightful & my classmates are fun. And I'm so glad we're already connected on Twitter, because you make my days bright. :)

Hey Su! I read the comment on my blog that you wanted to participate in the shenanigans I have planned, but your email address isn't listed on your profile so I couldn't contact you (except this way...*grin*). If you email me at dlh.hammons@gmail.com I'll be more than happy to press you into service! :)

Oops! Will do!

Mia Hayson said...

Hahahaha. SO THAT'S WHY I CAN'T STAND FACEBOOK.

Adina West said...

Wow, talk about two birds one stone and all that. You'll be tweeting up a storm AND getting good marks! The ultimate achievement. :-)

Su said...

@Mia: And that's why I'm addicted... oops. ;)

@Adina: I know; it's brilliant!
