Quick Update

I know it has been a while since I have blogged and sorry that this post has to be so short, but things are just busy right now. Finishing up with summer school has been hectic and I’m also trying to work on a house project. Yeah, I actually do some minor construction. Jack of all trades, master of none 😀


Anyways, this post is about my dissertation. I am currently writing my first three chapters and my focus is still on how Human Service Nonprofits are using social media. I’m planning on conducting a survey among local organizations to explore the use and participation of these organizations on social media outlets like Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube. If you know of any good resources about participation or participatory culture, feel free to share. I am spending a lot of time with Henry Jenkins stuff right now, so I’m hoping to lay a good theoretical foundation for my project. Okay, well I said this would be short so there it is.

Thanks for stopping by my blog.
