#ds106 #Headless13 Who Are You? Countdown


Well, I made a new #headless13 Friends Index and it has 62 Friends on it, and maybe there are more who are missing. Speak up, bub!  

But for the 62 #headless13 Friends some of them have lost their NAMES and their TWITTER or they didn’t say them yet. So I need all my True Friends and others to help me to do a detective and meet the others. Some of our new Friends need to turn on comments on their blogs so that we can ask them pointy questions like, “What is your name?” and “Do you have a Twitter yet?” or to help them with other things that Friends do, like say “read this great post by @iamTalkyTina called Some Advice for my Newest Friends that she wrote for you.”

This morning I had a nice chat with Ary (@trendingteacher) and was introduced to Kelsy (@kmallwein) and Mads or Maddie (@maddiekp), who was already up-to-date on my Index. That is how Friends help Friends. 

Check out the Friends on my #headless13 Friends Index. Do you know who they are? Do they have a Twitter and didn’t say it yet? Can you help me to give them a boot?  Here is a Boot for You!

Also, I made a Twitter List called #headless13 Friends that you can follow using your Twitter so that you can get everybody all at once — as long as they are on my list so far.  Plus, if you know someone who is NOT on my list who is doing #headless13, be sure to say.

Well, bye for now!


Here is a Boot for You!

So I think it is a great thing that so many people are #headless13 people for the fall2013 #ds106 Digital Storytelling Course. I think it is such a great way for me to get more Friends and to Make More Art at the same time. I made a new Index called #headless13 Friends Index, and you should be on it!

Are you?

For some people in the Boot Camp, they need a kind of gentle kick to get going and so I have a boot for them. In case they need a good boot. Because some of them do. Here it is.

So if you are being lazy or have been too busy (which it what they all say!) then it is time for the Sergeants to get Hulka on your hyena.

You have likely seen a nice picture of me wearing my Sgt. @iamTalkyTinaHulka hat. And you have probably seen a picture of the other Sgt. Hulka that is NOT me. My hat has flowers which says I am nice. And so I am giving you this boot to get going, before the other Sgt. Hulka gives you HIS boot. And his hat does NOT have flowers. So I think you can guess whose boot you want.

So if you are just getting started, you might like to read my post, Some Advice for my Newest Friends, which has some wonderful ideas for you that you should do, especially if you are on my list but don’t have a name or a Twitter yet. Right now, my list has 10 no-name brands people and 18 without Twitter bird voices people. It is much nicer to be a Friend with someone who has a name and if you can hear their Twitter bird voice.

So this has just been a polite @iamTalkyTina public service announcement. And a boot for you to get going. Because #headless13 has started, and we are making Art, bub!

Remember, a GIF a day keeps the doctor away!
