Armchair BEA Day 2
How do you use social media to expand your blogging/writing horizons?
I usually find diverse blog posts through the people I follow on Twitter–primarily, Becky Albertalli and the Gay YA. I watch YouTube videos on things I’m currently interested in. As of now, that’s been watching Ashley Mardell’s ABCs of LGBT; and looking for more stuff pertaining to that. After I found how irritated I was hearing homophobic slurs and gay jokes…I realized even more than before how important it was to research and not be ignorant. Especially since it’s such a n important part of our society–diversity, that is. I tend to do my best to do my research— not even just to (eventually) blog about; but just so I can truly know for myself and encourage others IRL.
