Smart Latinas Share their Knowledge

A few weeks ago I created my first video for my Escúchame blog, http://raquel.escuchame.org.  It's called Twitter in 60 Seconds, and it quite literally takes you through all the basics in a single minute: I made the video for multiple reasons: 1) I've been receiving a lot of requests for Twitter tutorials.  Let's be honest, though - I don't have time to spend 20 minutes with every person who asks for Twitter help (not that I don't want to!).  And teaching Twitter is really a one-on-one event, unless you have a computer lab.  Most importantly, though, everyone learns at a different pace. 2) I like making videos.  I've made all of the how-to videos for navigating the Escúchame website.  And, when I was in middle/high school, I desperately wanted to be a filmmaker.  Though my dreams of becoming the next Stephen Spielberg have drastically changed, I still get a thrill out of scripting, storyboarding, and editing. 3=1+2) I knew I could make an effective Twitter video.  I wanted it to be quick, so that even the busiest person could watch it.  I wanted it to be easy, so that even the most distracted person could learn from it.  And I wanted it to be full of information, so that everyone could go at their own pace and get everything they need. I never really thought that my knowledge of Twitter would be the biggest deal in the world, but it's helped quite a few people so far!  Here's to hoping it helps even more soon - I'll even be making a more advanced Twitter video (covering hashtags, lists, and favorites) soon, so stay tuned! In the meantime, though - what knowledge can you share?  Have you thought about sharing it with other Smart Latinas at escuchame.org?  Get started today!
