Tameri Blog and More
Our thoughts on reading and writing
We maintain a blog dedicated to writing and reading. The Tameri Readers and Writers WordPress blog is meant to be a fun place to share our love for books. We post short reviews from time to time. Occassionally, we review tools for writers. We encourage you to follow the Tameri blog and add your comments to our posts.
When we post a new blog entry, we also tweet the heading to our Twitter account followers. A copy of blog posts are copied to Facebook and LinkedIn, too. While this might seem like overkill, we know that people prefer different social networks.
Scott maintains several blogs on a variety of topics. If you are interested in teaching and techology, read Poet Ponders Digital Pedagogy. Writing and publishing have always been shaped by technology; this should also inform writing education. Blogging and social media have changed the nature of writing and promoting books.
