An urge for increased visibility and the yearning to empower others keeps the Off Balanced movement going forward. January 2013 continued building momentum with a new guest blog post, Making My Mark blogger Madison Sanders reviewing my teenage memoir, and implementing vlogs (via Youtube) into my social media regimen. Forgoing further ado, let’s delve into these recent happenings!
The Inclusive Class, Guest Post
Recently I received the pleasure to once again connect with The Inclusive Class audience. You might recall back on Friday, September 28th, 2012 I appeared on The Inclusive Class podcast with hosts Nicole Eredics and Terri Mauro. This go round the medium changed as Nicole offered me the opportunity to write a guest post for The Inclusive Class blog. Hopefully you’ll find my insights enjoyable and more importantly useful, “Three Tips to Thrive Socially Inside an Inclusive Classroom.”
Making My Mark, Book Review
Big thanks goes out to Making My Mark blogger Madison Sanders for making time in her very busy schedule to read and review Off Balanced. Like Madison notes early on, I asked her to review my book months and months ago. I personally found her review worth the wait. Considering she refused to let her cerebral palsy cause her to wallow in self-pity, she provided a different dynamic to her review. Read what she says, “Book Review: Off Balanced by Zachary Fenell.”
In my January 30th post “New Year Resolutions,” I mentioned my intentions to vlog regularly via my Youtube channel. To begin I will upload two new vlogs a month. Initially I decided to pursue vlogging to avoid my channel becoming stagnant on the video sharing site. After my two January uploads I gained increased enthusiasm for the platform. Ultimately I feel the metaphorical stage video offers holds the potential to strengthen connections between creative minds (musicians, artists, writers, etc.) and their audiences. See if you agree by taking 10 minutes and watching my latest vlog post.
