Three Weeks on Twitter: @IsabelAnders

 As I come to the end of my third week of participation in the Twitter community, I’m amazed at the difference tweeting makes in feeling visible, connected, informed, and allowed to participate personally in (especially writers’) events as they unfold around the world....more

How to Really Use Google Reader

So, how do you keep up with all the great reading on the Internet? I have to admit that until last week, I was not very good at it.  I finally, FINALLY started using Google Reader.  OMG, why didn't I do it like 3 years ago?!  It is awesome!  Everything you want to read, you just add to your list and then open your Reader everyday and all new stuff is posted!
