So lately, I’ve been trying to expand my social media presence when I have the time. At the moment, I have my blog (which you’re reading now!), my Facebook page (which you should totally be part of!), and my Instagram (which will make you laugh!). I’ll be honest, I first joined Instagram to win a prize at the FLA conference in 2014 and have been doing it ever since.
Recently, I’ve been working with my publicist to step it up and get even more involved; I’m not saying I want to be a household name in the library industry, but I certainly wouldn’t refuse it. Of all the ideas we’ve been trying, there’s one that I keep repeatedly shooting down. That’s right: joining Twitter.
I’m not the biggest fan of Twitter, “tweeting”, hashtagging anything, etc…I think it was because I was forced to join for a film studies class back in undergrad when it was more clunky; I quit Twitter when the class was over and haven’t been back to it since. I’ve railed against it since then, often mocking the Kardashian-esque #OMG #LOL #IDKMYBFFJILL drivel on most Twitter accounts. Thankfully, I have a great publicist who sat me down and bluntly hit me over the head: “Justin, you already have a WordPress, Instagram, and Facebook…The Brash Librarian needs Twitter.”
Alright…but if I have a Twitter, I’m going to tweet about the important stuff that matters!
Well, mostly important stuff! Feel free to follow or tweet me at “brashlibrarian”
(I still feel weird saying “tweet me”.)
That’s all for this week, hope to hear from a few of you!
Justin Brasher, Brash Librarian
