My Columns

vine voiceAmazon Vine Voice

Launched in 2007 in an effort to encourage top-notch reviews, Amazon selects individuals with unbiased, well-written, balanced reviews to join a cadre of Amazon reviewers called Amazon Vine Voices. They are offered free products, then asked to review these for Amazon. There is no pay involved, just the free products like books, CD’s, movies, computer products, food–anything that is sold on Amazon. Every time they review a product, be it from the list awarded by Amazon or one of their own selection, it carries the logo for ‘Amazon Vine Voice’.

A question I’m often asked is, Do I get paid? Absolutely not. That would destroy the authenticity of the review. In that way, I feel no pressure to post anything but the truth.

Once a week, I write a 500-1000 word article for a teacher’s ezine called TeachHUB, an all-encompassing overview of helpful hints and materials for education professionals. They assign a topic or I suggest one–either way. They range from the impact of the changes in teaching standards on your child’s classroom to new online websites that will improve education to long-range goals and trends of the K-8 schools. I love writing these. I research them by chatting with fellow educators in my PLN (Personal Learning Network), see what their thoughts are, and then distill a cogent response that I hope helps TeachHUB’s readers better understand the topic. Along the way, I learn a lot about what make education tick.

Today’s Author

Today’s Author is an eclectic collection of international writers who get together daily to discuss topics that affect writers. Topics I cover range from my fears, likes/dislikes of being a writer, tricks to help when I’m stuck, or pretty much whatever is on my mind that three hours, when I sit down to create my column. Very fun.

who?????

I have room for one more gig. Any ideas?
