The class roster was so short, I was worried our session would be called off. No notice of cancellation arrived, so my co-presenter and I proceeded as planned, and arrived at the high school campus a couple of hours early to set up. Good timing, as we had technical glitches to work out. It's situations like those that make me glad I know people like my Google-Certified-Educator co-presenter.
Four out of the six enrollees arrived. We launched into our presentation called "The Writer-Librarian: Why You Should Be Blogging."
Questions were asked, tips were shared, inspiration developed for both attendees and presenters. My co-presenter and I blog from different approaches (hers more technical, mine more prosaic), hopefully reinforcing the idea that blogging is a limitless venture, open to the interpretation of the author.
We went off course several times, talking about popular culture, library events, personal interests, technical woes and victories. All fodder for blogging, I reminded our participants.
This is only the second time I've attempted being a presenter; it's the first time I"ve felt that we accomplished what we set out to do.
It feels good to share what you know, and have it well-received.
