Since it’s the Friday after Thanksgiving, I decided to talk about the tech I’m thankful for. I get asked about my website and podcast a lot. So I’ll share about those tools! Everything I use is free except for my Wix and Libsyn accounts.
Wix- where I host my website https://www.wix.com/
GoDaddy- where I bought my domain https://www.godaddy.com
Google Docs- where I write my weekly blogs and hold them for future use https://docs.google.com
Canva https://www.canva.com, Pixabay https://pixabay.com, Unsplash https://unsplash.com, and Media from Wix https://support.wix.com/en/article/adding-free-media-from-wix- where I find images that aren’t my original work
Hootsuite- where I schedule or blast out my announcements to Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, and Instagram www.hootsuite.com/
Podcast: The Librarian Influencers Podcast
G Suite- where I host my Google form surveys to gather interview names, schedule appointments in the Google calendar, share Google slides with the interview questions, and create show notes in Google docs https://gsuite.google.com
Zoom- where I see my interviewees and record our conversation https://zoom.us
Audacity- where I edit all the interviews and save as mp4 files https://www.audacityteam.org
Libsyn- where I upload each week’s podcast and connect the RSS feed to all the podcast platforms https://libsyn.com
That’s a lot to be thankful for! I’ve learned a lot since I started the blog in July and the podcast in August. It's been a fun journey! I’m thankful that school libraries changed my life personally and professionally! You can read more about my goals here https://www.laurasheneman.com/about.
Thanks for all you do, school librarians. You are making a difference every day! Thank you for being a Librarian Influencer on your campus and in your district. The students need you. The teachers need you. Your administrator needs you. You are a vital part of their learning community!
Love to you all!
