Excellent! Thanks for the list--I can see some of my weaker disciplines, oral communication and distraction. I'm a writer, but I need to work on talking to people without being wishy-washy (people perceive me as being too nice). And, I allow myself to be distracted too easily. Again, you have given me a lot to think about--I appreciate your posts.

I only started flossing within the last ten years or so. My problem was I didn't know how to do it--once my hygienist showed me how to do it, I took off. Now, I floss, brush, and use Listerine twice a day. My gums have improved immensely. I have discovered that I am a visual learner, so I need to read directions or see someone demonstrate what I'm learning. Hearing instructions just doesn't do it for me. That's why I wish I either had a tutor or a simple manual of everything I need to know to be tech-savvy.

I will be praying for you--have a fruitful and blessed trip. And, yes, I will tweet your posts as I can.

Sometimes, just the fact that God sees the good that we do is enough for me. In a world full of negative words and actions, encouragement and kindness can be breaths of fresh air.

Wow, Daniel, you are a jewel! You've given so much good information that it's going to take me some time to process it. I have my blog and I'm building an audience--Twitter seeems to be the main source of my new readers, so I'm trying to use tweets strategically. My biggest issues are the interviews and the speeches. In my small city, there are not that many opportunities and I think I may be a little too well-known here to be considered beyond being a mother of seven and a high school English teacher. As I am turning my posts into a manuscript (lots of revision) and am preparing my book proposal, I am also thinking about finding some sort of training in speaking. Thanks, Daniel, for writing this series of posts--I appreciate it more than maybe you can imagine.

Red face here! I haven't read the manual yet--I can use the phone, browse the net, have fun in Twitterland, and check the weather and facebook! When I do read the manual and find out what I've been missing, I'll probably be mad at myself. And, I'll let you know about the speech to test app.

Do you know if there is a similar app for Droid?

Ron, you and I have similar personalities. My principal just told me I'm a big picture person--I don't like some details (like lesson plans); however, I'm quite detail-oriented in my writing. I also love change and I try to be attuned to what is working and what is not. As a teacher, my top priority is that students be engaged, so I've been known to change strategies midstream if what I'm doing isn't working. I try to keep my students on their toes.

I'm not sure what you mean.

I meant to tweet yesterday, but forgot. Congrats on being selected for the Catalyst "Young Influencers" list--quite a honor. Keep up the good work! Unfortunately, I won't be able to go to Catalyst in October because I'll be in school, Atlanta is far away, and I can't take the time off that I'd need to attend. Instead, I'll be looking forward to hearing your reports from the conference!
