Calling All Women in Social Media! Join Ananda’s 10/13 Twitter Launch of #STB10 #DigitalSisterhood Wednesdays.

On the last day of Blogalicious 2010, I recorded a video about my 10/13 Twitter launch of #STB10 #DigitalSisterhood Wednesdays. Click on the link to watch the video: http://vimeo.com/15741180.
#STB10 #DigitalSisterhood Wednesdays will give women in social media a weekly opportunity to build and strengthen their communities. Each week women will be encouraged to celebrate and promote their digital sisters by using the #FF (Friday Follow) format to list their digital sisters’ Twitter IDs. Women will also be encouraged to tweet about their digital sisters’ businesses, wisdom, creativity, blogs, Facebook pages, causes, videos, web sites, etc.

#STB10 is a hashtag that refers to Sisterhood the Blog 2010. I developed it to track my Twitter conversations, DC-based focus groups, and online radio shows about her Sisterhood the Blog book project. Sisterhood the Blog is a memoir about my Internet experiences from 1986 to 2011. I include how women on the Internet have influenced and inspired my life. I am using the information collected on Twitter as research for my book project. Click here to learn about the book project and Kickstarter fundraiser: kck.st/avHVlu.

Remember to use the #STB10 and #DigitalSisterhood hashtags on October 13 and every Wednesday thereafter.

Follow me on Twitter to track all of the great #STB10 #DigitalSisterhood sharing on Wednesdays: http://twitter.com/anandaleeke.

Thank you for your support!

My Blogher 2009 Conference Update #2 – Webisodes of My Blogher Experience

Happy President Obama’s Birthday!

Happy Tuesday!

I am still on my Blogher 2009 Conference (www.blogher.com) high.  My energy is going strong!  I decided to share several webisodes of Ananda Leeke TV (www.youtube.com/anandaleeke) that feature my Blogher experience.  Let me know what you think.

I will post webisodes from my Black Women in Social Media @ Blogher Series later this week.  They feature a diverse group of dynamic women including Donna Byrd, publisher of TheRoot.com (www.theroot.com) and Gina McCauley, founder of Blogging While Brown (www.bloggingwhilebrown.com), What About Our Daughters blog (www.whataboutourdaughters.com), and Michelle Obama Watch web site (http://michelleobamawatch.com).  I posted the interviews of Donna and Gina below to give you a taste of what’s to come. 

 

 

August 6th marks the launch of my interview series with Blogher 2009 conference participants on Sisterhood, the Blog Radio (http://www.talkshoe.com/tc/42015). The program schedule will be posted shortly. 

Find out what happened to me on the first day of Blogher. Many thanks to Megan Smith for filming the webisode.

 

While I was at Blogher, I had time to make a fun webisode with Tropicana Juice. I shared my healthy tip on eating breakfast. My Blogher sistalove Shaz Mistery filmed my “bootleg” webisode as the Tropicana folks filmed their “Juice” webisode!  The Tropicana folks said my webisode turned out great!  I can’t wait to see the official copy.  I wanna give a shout out to my brother Matt for teaching me how to do on camera interviews! 

 

On the last day of the conference, I hung out with Sam Smith, one of the nicest Blogher men I met.  Sam served as ae Pepsico guy and  promoted Tropicana Juice products.  He always made my day with wonderful compliments!  Many thanks to Shaz Mistry for filming the webisode!

 

Thanks for stopping by.  Enjoy your day and week!

Peace and Creativity,

Ananda
