Mashable launched Social Media Day in 2010 as a way to celebrate and honor the digital revolution that happens every moment. People host meet ups around the world to celebrate this global movement.
Since today is Social Media Day, take a few moments to declare your social media independence by making a My #DigCitizen Supports Campaign sign for Digital Citizenship Month (launches on July 1).
Write the phrase: My #DigCitizen Supports _________. Fill in the blank with your ideas and/or interests. Use your mobile phone, digital device or camera to take a photo. Post it on Instagram, Tumblr or Twitter with the #DigCitizen hashtag. We’ll repost it.
It’s National Poetry Month! One of the places I like to visit during the month is Poets.org. It offers a new poem each day. You can even have it emailed to you. Click here to sign up.
Are you a poetry lover? Who are your favorite poets? Where do you go online to read poetry?
I love reading the poetry of Tim’m T. West, an amazing activist,author, educator, feminist, hip hop artist, poet, scholar, and singer. I met Tim’m while he was hosting The Front Porch, a monthly poetry reading series at Mocha Hut, a cafe located on U Street in Washington, D.C (closed in 2009). He encouraged me to participate in The Front Porch monthly readings.
In honor of National Poetry Month, I thought I would share several videos featuring my brothalove poet Tim’m West. Tim’m is an amazing creative soul. He has been a major inspiration in my work. I wrote about Tim’m in my new book That Which Awakens Me. Check out the videos below featuring Tim’m and me reading a poem about Tim’m. Enjoy!
Do you have a six-word memoir for today? Mine is Poetry.Jazz.Earth. Baptize me today.
Peace, Creativity, Compassion, and Gratitude for poetical souls like Tim’m,
