The Twitter Trio (2)

Here's episode two of my new weekend feature in which I let you know about interesting things I have learned via Twitter.

Found via @ruth_skerricks.

In this post on Ruth's blog Skerricks, she mentioned that Evernote is an application for collecting and sorting information. Now as a student of librarianship, lifelong learner, and lover of anything to do with finding and using information more effectively, I was intrigued. Ruth's post led me to this post on The Chronicle of Higher Education entitled "Take a Minute to Collect Your Thoughts". Written by Shawn Miller, this post is an account of how he uses Evernote to create a "personal database" to use for research, writing and generating ideas.

It seems to me that it might take a while to learn how to use Evernote, but it looks like it might be worth it.

2. Blogging Do's and Don'ts

@dsfunctionalmom shared this great post on Wednesday: "What NOT to do if you want people to actually read your blog!"

On a similar note, @bookladysblog wrote this guest post at The Book Case called "So, you wanna be a book blogger..."

3. Did you know that millions of women and girls in developing countries miss up to 50 days of school or work every year because they do not have access to affordable sanitary pads when they menstruate?
