Still no word from Temple, Texas on the status of my hard-drive.
Maybe it might be deemed undead by Halloween?
But I’m not holding my breath.
In fact, I’m moving forward in the wake of my heinous computer crash.
As promised, change is a comin’.
First Things First.
You regulars may have noticed that I have changed the name of my blog.
I know, some of you are yawning.
Like big whoop.
But I had to make that decision before I could make other decisions.
When I was still deciding if I should keep the name Teachers & Twits, I asked TechSupport for his opinion.
“Mom, everyone knows you by Teachers & Twits. It’s your brand. You can’t change it now.”
(I swear, he said it just like that. He actually said “brand,” leading me to believe he has been reading Kristen Lamb’s blog?)
I understand what he means.
I’m definitely a firm believer that anyone can be a teacher (or a twit) on any given day.
I mean that was the premise of this blog in the first place.
But other folks suggested I blog under my own ridiculously long name.
Many bloggers do that: authors & writers I respect.
I’m trying to grow my freelance career.
Eventually, I will have a book.
(It is scheduled to be released moments before Hell freezes over. But still.)
I want people to recognize my
ridiculously long name.
So I hope you like the changes you are starting to see.
And writing under my own name doesn’t mean I can’t have a cool tagline.
Because life doesn’t fit in a file folder fits.
Now I can write about anything, which feels liberating.
Hopefully, you will continue to think of me as that hot girl with the sparkly glasses.
And the hair.
Who uses all those words.
Wait, you don’t think I’m hot?
Did you not see THIS?
Listen, I won’t always be in the classroom.
So it makes sense to drop the teacher part of things.
And while I may do some goofy things and enjoy a little naughty wordplay, I’m not a twit.
I never was.
Get psyched to be part of the changes.
A new header is a comin’.
Get ready to exercise your right to vote.
