@FromPhDtoLife If you are an adjunct, you teach (=training), putting together syllabus (=program design), lecturing (=program delivery) etc. #adjunctchat 3/11/2014 16:10

@FromPhDtoLife I personally need to find a synonym for “life coach” 🙂 #adjunctchat I’m a professional people promoter? Working on it… 3/11/2014 16:12
@npmaven …Learning facilitator. Covers vast amount of ground where I live. 🙂 #adjunctchat 3/11/2014 16:12
@JeffreyKeefer @fabianbanga @FromPhDtoLife I always struggled to clearly say what I do, though after #actor-network theory even tougher #AdjunctChat #ANT 3/11/2014 16:12
@ProfessorF74 @FromPhDtoLife Career Consultant? Career Guide? Professional Developer? #adjunctchat 3/11/2014 16:13
@JeffreyKeefer I suppose I struggle with the “I am X” vs. “I professionally do X” — they seem different animals #AdjunctChat 3/11/2014 16:13
@npmaven RT @JeffreyKeefer I suppose I struggle with the “I am X” vs. “I professionally do X” — they seem different animals #adjunctchat 3/11/2014 16:13
@FromPhDtoLife To help: Think back on life & work: When were you at your best? Or, what are you most proud of? #adjunctchat 3/11/2014 16:13
@npmaven @JeffreyKeefer Also feels like a gap that is very personal right now 🙂 #adjunctchat 3/11/2014 16:13

@FromPhDtoLife @ProfessorF74 “I’m a professional document fixer!” #AdjunctChat 3/11/2014 16:15
@Comprof1 #adjunctchat I can tell you what I am NOT (engineer, research scientist, healthcare professional), but I can/will do almost anything else 3/11/2014 16:15
@JeffreyKeefer @FromPhDtoLife Why a synonym for life coach? That is fine in itself, though perhaps Career Transition Coach? #AdjunctChat 3/11/2014 16:16
@NevilleAnnKelly I call myself “contemplative, scholar, writer & teacher” because I do all that as a happy theology semi-#postac . Yes, #AdjunctChat, vague! 3/11/2014 16:16

@chrishumphrey #adjunctchat If you focus on the doing, it also helps with explaining what you can do for an employer. Versus ‘I profess’?! 3/11/2014 16:17
@npmaven Getting the sentiment & agree, yet doc journey was deeply transformative. At some personal level, an “am” right now. #adjunctchat 3/11/2014 16:17
@ProfessorF74 @FromPhDtoLife #AdjunctChat Sure, that. And/or when I’ve found THAT ERROR no one else did. I.e., the kind that would haunt writer & me. 3/11/2014 16:17

#AdjunctChat Topic Mar 11 ~ “I’m a Professional X” (with @chrishumphrey @FromPhDtoLife @ProfessorF74)

Twitter_ChatThe topic for the #AdjunctChat on Tuesday, March 11 is:

“I’m a Professional X” – How to Recast Academic Experience in a #PostAc / #AltAc Environment.

When applying for jobs outside academia, you have to dig deep and reinvent your professional persona. You need to translate your skills and experience into a language that employers can understand. So we want to know what’s worked for you,  and what might work for you in future, be it project manager, writer, scientist, whatever else.

  1. What hints and tips can you share with others about presenting your skills?
  2. What can you do to reinvent how you present yourself topotential employers and colleagues?

The chat will be co-facilitated by Chris Humphrey (@chrishumphrey), Jen Polk (@FromPhDtoLife) & Joe Fruscione (@ProfessorF74).

Here are some resources to help you learn more about marketing yourself as a professional X (where the X=the name of the job role you are applying for):

@manville71 #AdjunctChat my biggest obstacle to writing is divided attention. teach 4 classes take 2, plus life. I can’t get a block of time set aside 3/4/2014 21:05
@Melissa_Venable @LitProfSuz I have a writing partner as well – small group, but we keep each other motivated to keep moving forward #AdjunctChat 3/4/2014 21:05
@JeffreyKeefer @Melissa_Venable Great to see you in #AdjunctChat again!! 3/4/2014 21:05
@Melissa_Venable @JeffreyKeefer Thanks, Jeffrey! Good to be here. Have had a packed schedule lately. #AdjunctChat 3/4/2014 21:06
@LitProfSuz I’ve also read Boice’s “Professors as Writers” to help in coaching. #adjunctchat 3/4/2014 21:06
@JeffreyKeefer @LitProfSuz Whose advice did you follow? #AdjunctChat 3/4/2014 21:06
@JeffreyKeefer @manville71 This is my experience, too! #AdjunctChat 3/4/2014 21:06
@LitProfSuz Q1: To unmask the private agony of writing, what are the things that block you as a writer? #adjunctchat 3/4/2014 21:07
@manville71 #AdjunctChat Writing partner would be great. Other adjuncts are not viable–they are too much in transition as well. 3/4/2014 21:07
@JeffreyKeefer My challenge with #AcWri is that I work FT in educational project management, teach 2 classes, and do a bit of consulting #AdjunctChat 3/4/2014 21:07

@npmaven RT @LitProfSuz Q1: To unmask the private agony of writing, what are the things that block you as a writer? #adjunctchat 3/4/2014 21:07
@Melissa_Venable @manville71 Agreed! divided attention, time, distractions … all can affect focus on writing. #AdjunctChat 3/4/2014 21:07
@LitProfSuz @JeffreyKeefer Silvia recommends an accountability wrtng group. State goals, admit success & failure. Peer pressure. #adjunctchat 3/4/2014 21:08
@npmaven Typical: time (for this work), energy, multiple demands on both. #adjunctchat 3/4/2014 21:08

@npmaven Energy is huge, esp since “non-work” writing is confined to limited blocks of time – not prime, either, for me. #adjunctchat 3/4/2014 21:09
@LitProfSuz @Melissa_Venable @manville71 Boice found that regular, small (30 min) amounts of wrtng is more productive than binging #adjunctchat 3/4/2014 21:09
@IshaiBarnoy A1: I’m usually blocked by other people’s expectations, especially people close to me. #AdjunctChat 3/4/2014 21:10
@fabianbanga @LitProfSuz I can only write under a lot of adrenaline and pressure #adjunctchat 3/4/2014 21:10
@IshaiBarnoy A1: It’s easiest for me to write to my students, because it seems they’re still figuring out their expectations. #AdjunctChat 3/4/2014 21:10
@JeffreyKeefer @IshaiBarnoy Welcome! #AdjunctChat 3/4/2014 21:11
@Comprof1 RT @4KM: A1 #Adjunctchat Biggest block is remuneration. No $, time, advancement etc. for publications, and the research and writing is… 3/4/2014 21:11
@LitProfSuz @IshaiBarnoy Ah, the inner and external critic! Not unusual. I think we all fear what others will think. #adjunctchat 3/4/2014 21:11
@Melissa_Venable @LitProfSuz Interesting! I’m not sure how much I would accomplish in 30 mn. Spend that time recapping where I was when left off #AdjunctChat 3/4/2014 21:11
@fabianbanga My dissertation: 3 month of procrastination and then wrote a chapter in two weeks. (then editing) #AdjunctChat 3/4/2014 21:12
@npmaven My “prime” writing time: 5:15-6:15 a.m. Before work, sleeping puppy clear brain 🙂 Still, multiple demands on it. #adjunctchat 3/4/2014 21:12
@LitProfSuz @fabianbanga Ah, you like the demands of a deadline. That is good to know about yourself. #adjunctchat 3/4/2014 21:12

@JeffreyKeefer RT @LitProfSuz: Q1: To unmask the private agony of writing, what are the things that block you as a writer? #adjunctchat 3/4/2014 21:13
@fabianbanga @LitProfSuz Very common in journalism #AdjunctChat 3/4/2014 21:13
@IshaiBarnoy @fabianbanga @LitProfSuz Yes, me too. Somehow, the critic’s gone and “authenticity” is pointless then. Feels crappy, though. #AdjunctChat 3/4/2014 21:13
@npmaven As pracademic, I’m also torn: immediate access, interaction, sharing via blog vs. long-term academic writing projects #adjunctchat 3/4/2014 21:13
@manville71 #AdjunctChat for me the 30 minutes is a nonstarter. It’s just getting settled, where are my sources, what is my framework. 3/4/2014 21:14
@JeffreyKeefer Q1: My biggest block is having time AND then I try to get everything just right before I start, and thus never start #AdjunctChat 3/4/2014 21:14

@Melissa_Venable +1 to @npmaven’s tip – early morning hours, before house and work get going, can be really productive for writing. #AdjunctChat 3/4/2014 21:15
@JeffreyKeefer @manville71 A1: I am very process oriented, so also like to get everything just right before I begin #AdjunctChat 3/4/2014 21:16
@IshaiBarnoy @JeffreyKeefer Best way for me to find time, and avoid perfectionism, is to steal this time — find a really bad time to write. #AdjunctChat 3/4/2014 21:16
@Comprof1 @npmaven esp now trying to decide what will get me a position. I feel shattered #adjunctchat 3/4/2014 21:16
@JeffreyKeefer @npmaven What is a pracademic? #AdjunctChat 3/4/2014 21:16

@npmaven @JeffreyKeefer Pracademic=practitioner who also teaches #adjunctchat 3/4/2014 21:16
@LitProfSuz Boice states wrtng probs include-censoring self,fear of failure,perfectionism, procrastination,attitude toward wrtng & busyness #adjunctchat 3/4/2014 21:17
@Comprof1 @IshaiBarnoy @JeffreyKeefer can you explain?#adjunctchat 3/4/2014 21:17
@IshaiBarnoy @Melissa_Venable @npmaven Not me. I’ve got my mornings plotted too carefully. Not even five minutes of writing time left. #AdjunctChat 3/4/2014 21:17
@JeffreyKeefer Today’s #AdjunctChat topic about #AcWri reminds me of some similar themes we had recently with @CamelsHammers 3/4/2014 21:17
@Melissa_Venable @npmaven 🙂 so many ideas and possible projects, so little time. #AdjunctChat 3/4/2014 21:17
@LitProfSuz So, now that we have revealed our problems, let’s talk about solutions. Q2) What works for you? #adjunctchat 3/4/2014 21:17
@fabianbanga @JeffreyKeefer had a column on Saturday newspaper: I wrote on Fridays (all am doing nothing and then vomit all in 30 m @ pm) #adjunctchat 3/4/2014 21:17
@npmaven @Comprof1 So sorry to hear that. My low bar: too old for tenure track position. Makes it easier(?) to look at other avenues. #adjunctchat 3/4/2014 21:17
@npmaven @Melissa_Venable Epecially for Renaissance souls like us 😉 #adjunctchat 3/4/2014 21:18
@Comprof1 RT @Melissa_Venable: @npmaven 🙂 so many ideas and possible projects, so little time. #AdjunctChat 3/4/2014 21:18

@npmaven RT @LitProfSuz So, now that we have revealed our problems, let’s talk about solutions. Q2) What works for you? #adjunctchat 3/4/2014 21:18
@JeffreyKeefer @LitProfSuz What sort of coaching do you do regarding #AcWri? #AdjunctChat 3/4/2014 21:18
@IshaiBarnoy @Comprof1 @JeffreyKeefer I find a pocket of time when I could (so maybe should) be grading, for instance. Then I write instead. #AdjunctChat 3/4/2014 21:19
@npmaven A2) Definitely making the most of limited prime time. Also, looking for ways to repurpose. #adjunctchat 3/4/2014 21:19
@manville71 #AdjunctChat what’s renumeration? 🙂 I do find a way to write everyday but none of it benefits me at my #adjunct position, only PhD prog 3/4/2014 21:19
@JeffreyKeefer @fabianbanga So, you wrote in a non-academic way as an aid in focusing? #AdjunctChat 3/4/2014 21:19

@LitProfSuz @Comprof1 @JeffreyKeefer That is a great question! Why do I want to publish? Should I publish? Where? #adjunctchat 3/4/2014 21:30

@Comprof1 @LitProfSuz @JeffreyKeefer blogging is shorter and for me now has more impact than aca journal #adjunctchat 3/4/2014 21:32
@LitProfSuz @npmaven I agree. I try to write in morning when fresh. #adjunctchat 3/4/2014 21:33
@JeffreyKeefer @LitProfSuz Great idea for a Google Doc w/ a friend & log time/words/ etc. State goals and record success #AdjunctChat. Anybody interested? 3/4/2014 21:33
@npmaven @Comprof1 @LitProfSuz @JeffreyKeefer Also seeing blog posts as starting points for book project (or even book in themselves). #adjunctchat 3/4/2014 21:33
@fabianbanga @LitProfSuz @Comprof1 @JeffreyKeefer You should publish; the academic peer review is import as a political tool. #AdjunctChat 3/4/2014 21:33
@JeffreyKeefer @Comprof1 @LitProfSuz Do you blog for the joy of it or somehow find your writing helps with your network or income or ideas? #AdjunctChat 3/4/2014 21:34

@JeffreyKeefer @Comprof1 I am interested in adding to the body or research; have never been focused on professional publications #AdjunctChat 3/4/2014 21:36
@Comprof1 @JeffreyKeefer @LitProfSuz Blogging helps with teaching, networking, jumping off point for peer review #adjunctchat 3/4/2014 21:36
@JeffreyKeefer @Comprof1 Part of that may be because of my struggles with interdisciplinarity #AdjunctChat 3/4/2014 21:36

@polypel88 Here is a good place for Q2: Does the “industry person” empower or oppress the voice of the adjuncts? #adjunctChat 2/25/2014 16:19
@JeffreyKeefer @polypel88 Interesting; I thought peer-reviewed journals, if that is what you mean, would not pay attention to that? #AdjunctChat 2/25/2014 16:20

@JeffreyKeefer @polypel88 A2: Can you talk more about what you mean by Q2? Do you mean how #adjuncts are considered from within orgs? #AdjunctChat 2/25/2014 16:21
@LitProfSuz @polypel88 As a student, I respected adjunct who worked FT more than profs cuz the adjunct was more current & immersed #adjunctchat 2/25/2014 16:21

@JeffreyKeefer @polypel88 A2: I also wonder the difference being an #adjunct means if one is in a practitioner oriented field? #AdjunctChat 2/25/2014 16:24
@Comprof1 @LitProfSuz @polypel88 I get that from my students also. I’m always bringing in examples from friends, family, outside speakers #adjunctchat 2/25/2014 16:24

@fabianbanga @polypel88 @Comprof1 Interestingly, in institutions you find different interpretations of what an adjunct is #adjunctchat 2/25/2014 16:28
@polypel88 @Comprof1 @JeffreyKeefer That’s a great thing to do .. empowering for him and his faculty #adjunctchat 2/25/2014 16:28
@LitProfSuz @Comprof1 AERA membership requires masters or equivalent, not PhD. Also trying to highlight more teacher voices now #adjunctchat 2/25/2014 16:28
@Comprof1 @merlemassie But just because good practioner doesn’t mean good teacher. Some of best teachers may not be best in field. #adjunctchat 2/25/2014 16:29
@polypel88 @fabianbanga @Comprof1 Very true Some are seen as ‘sideline teachers’ while others are seen as assets #adjunctchat 2/25/2014 16:29
@fabianbanga @polypel88 @Comprof1 For example for us Adjunct means PT instructor, but other local institutions, adjunct means FT non-tenure. #adjunctchat 2/25/2014 16:29
@JeffreyKeefer @merlemassie Welcome to #AdjunctChat! 2/25/2014 16:29
@Comprof1 @LitProfSuz Membership does, but didn’t used to. Also, they require phd to be reviewer. As if teachers can’t contribute. #adjunctchat 2/25/2014 16:30
@polypel88 @LitProfSuz @Comprof1 This is good to know: I wonder what this inclusive spirit will mean for adjuncts #adjunctchat 2/25/2014 16:30
@timlriley @Comprof1 @JeffreyKeefer @polypel88 #adjunctchat I would fit into this category. Endorsed to teach secondary #english & #journalismmatters 2/25/2014 16:30
@KeBrittain Yes, skills & experience experience to a certain degree @timlriley @polypel88 @hoosierphd KeBrittain @Comprof1 #adjunctchat 2/25/2014 16:31
@Comprof1 @fabianbanga @polypel88 Interesting. We don’t have “adjuncts” maybe because we are research uni with TA’s. #adjunctchat 2/25/2014 16:31
@LitProfSuz As a FT grad student, I adjuncted for experience. Wasn’t aware of adjunct issues until recently when it became my job. #adjunctchat 2/25/2014 16:31
@polypel88 @fabianbanga @Comprof1 I have seen it both ways for sure. What do you think about a person who works tFT but adjuncts PT? #adjunctchat 2/25/2014 16:31
@JeffreyKeefer @Comprof1 @polypel88 I did not know that about AREA! @AERA_EdResearch #AdjunctChat 2/25/2014 16:32
@JeffreyKeefer @Comprof1 @polypel88 I am letting my AERA membership lapse because they focus only on FT TT positions @AERA_EdResearch #AdjunctChat 2/25/2014 16:32
@LitProfSuz @polypel88 @Comprof1 I’m presenting this AERA, & will pay more attention to adjunct issues. Didn’t notice before #adjunctchat 2/25/2014 16:32
@timlriley @polypel88 @fabianbanga @Comprof1 #adjunctchat I’ve seen it and it angers me a little. Teach FT at one school & adjunct at another. 2/25/2014 16:33
@Comprof1 @polypel88 @fabianbanga Good question. Some unis you need to get prior permission. #adjunctchat 2/25/2014 16:33

@JeffreyKeefer @Comprof1 @polypel88 AERA is only for a TT world that is behind us; they offer little (nothing?) for adjuncts @AERA_EdResearch #AdjunctChat 2/25/2014 16:34
@LitProfSuz @JeffreyKeefer @polypel88 “professional training to at least the master’s degree level or equivalent” is the requirement #adjunctchat 2/25/2014 16:34
@fabianbanga @polypel88 @Comprof1 I see him/her as a professor / do not like the division: adjunct vs professor. #adjunctchat 2/25/2014 16:34

@polypel88 @LitProfSuz I wasn’t aware the adjunct existed until I was a grad student. Don’t think my undergrads are aware I am an adjunct #adjunctchat 2/25/2014 16:38

@JeffreyKeefer @LitProfSuz @polypel88 I like the notion of educational research, but the org that claims the title does not help adjuncts #AdjunctChat 2/25/2014 16:40
@Comprof1 @fabianbanga @polypel88 YOU might but others don’t. Just read comments on adjunct articles in @chronicle. #adjunctchat 2/25/2014 16:40
@merlemassie #adjunctchat Women used to work for ‘pin money’, little extras. Is there a risk that #adjunct work is viewed the same way? 2/25/2014 16:40
@polypel88 @Comprof1 @fabianbanga to have a second job at all. Some corporate people also teach. nurses teach adjunct classes #adjunctchat 2/25/2014 16:41
@JeffreyKeefer @polypel88 A3: My FT org welcomes its employees to work as #adjuncts; interest in outreach and focus on current evidence #AdjunctChat 2/25/2014 16:41
@Comprof1 @fabianbanga @polypel88 Also, some are “experts” but not professors. Old system is to get expert in to teach speciality #adjunctchat 2/25/2014 16:41
@fabianbanga @Comprof1 @polypel88 we need an anti-segregation strategy. the difficulty is also with professors who support the segregation. #adjunctchat 2/25/2014 16:41
@polypel88 @Comprof1 @fabianbanga @chronicle there is a subversive “Othering” of the adjunct in some of the rhetoric #adjunctchat 2/25/2014 16:42

#AdjunctChat Topic Feb 25 ~ Those who work FT outside academia BUT also adjunct (with @polypel88)

Twitter_ChatThe topic for the #AdjunctChat on Tuesday, February 25 is:

Those who work FT outside academia BUT also adjunct 

Our facilitator will be @polypel88. Moorea Coker currently works full-time as a high school English teacher in Crosby Texas. She adjuncts at Lee College in Baytown Texas. Her research interests include film theory, political theory and ideological representation in media.

Today, we will be discussing the adjunct who works full time. There are many questions to answer but the four below will be the focus:

Q1: Which industry’s employees would be most beneficial as adjunct instructors?

Q2: Does the “industry person” empower or oppress the voice of the adjuncts?

Q3: Can the adjunct experience change the industry where a full time employee works?

Q4: What might be the motivation to adjunct with a full time job in another industry?

@CamelsHammers #adjunctchat People assess a blog by what it looks like it is. To be taken seriously act like it’s serious already. 2/18/2014 16:09
@FromPhDtoLife What’s one big question you (adjuncts & academics in general) have abt social media? #adjunctchat 2/18/2014 16:09

@CamelsHammers #adjunctchat If you can’t foresee blogging AT LEAST once a week (but preferably 3-7 days a week) then just guest blog with others 2/18/2014 16:11
@Comprof1 Sorry I’m late got caught up in the Olympics #AdjunctChat 2/18/2014 16:11
@FromPhDtoLife What place does blogging have in your work & life, @CamelsHammers? How would you describe its importance? #adjunctchat 2/18/2014 16:12
@CamelsHammers @IshaiBarnoy #adjunctchat I would write on the train, I would wake up o 4 hours sleep, I was propelled by the rush of being heard. 2/18/2014 16:12

@JeffreyKeefer @CamelsHammers Why was blogging your communication mechanism of choice and how did it connect (or not) with your #adjunct work? #AdjunctChat 2/18/2014 16:13
@IshaiBarnoy #adjunctchat @CamelsHammers … But what if blogging or popular movements aren’t my thing, or at least not my main thing? 2/18/2014 16:13

@nicole_matos2 #adjunctchat, I’ve had good luck with @Medium as a platform for less-regular blogging–up to 10K readers, not bad for posting twice a month 2/18/2014 16:14
@JeffreyKeefer @JPSargeant78 Always a useful suggestion; communication does require an audience, even one in mind! #AdjunctChat 2/18/2014 16:14
@CamelsHammers @FromPhDtoLife #adjunctchat Personally, I revolve my life around blogging. It’s psychologically necessary for me to express myself with it. 2/18/2014 16:14
@IshaiBarnoy #adjunctchat @CamelsHammers I can see how I’m different. I like to showboat, sure. But being heard is a pain. I need to hide from people. 2/18/2014 16:14

@CamelsHammers @FromPhDtoLife #adjunctchat Blogging also became the door to independent business. In 2013I had ~25 independent students, made $18,000 2/18/2014 16:17
@CamelsHammers @FromPhDtoLife #adjunctchat those students came from the base of readers who respected what I did on my blog. 2/18/2014 16:17

@IshaiBarnoy #adjunctchat @FromPhDtoLife @JeffreyKeefer @CamelsHammers I’m just chillin’ with my homies. 2/18/2014 16:29
@CamelsHammers @IshaiBarnoy @FromPhDtoLife #adjunctchat And, of course, relevance. 2/18/2014 16:29
@CamelsHammers #adjunctchat A mistake people make with blogging is thinking one viral hit means your ship comes in. 2/18/2014 16:29
@FromPhDtoLife @CamelsHammers @IshaiBarnoy Interesting! I’m much more comfortable with the little bits of insight, 350-500 words at a time #adjunctchat 2/18/2014 16:30
@CamelsHammers #adjunctchat The only way to build significant traffic is with consistent production and quality of production. 2/18/2014 16:30
@JeffreyKeefer @CamelsHammers @FromPhDtoLife @IshaiBarnoy Were your blog posts then related to your academic work / teaching? #AdjunctChat 2/18/2014 16:30
@LitProfSuz @Comprof1 @JeffreyKeefer @FromPhDtoLife @CamelsHammers I have 3 blogs and 2 twitter accounts. Separates personal/prof #adjunctchat 2/18/2014 16:30
@CamelsHammers #adjunctchat For a big viral wave of readers, few will stick. Especially if the viral post is tangential to main blog themes. 2/18/2014 16:31
@JeffreyKeefer RT @CamelsHammers: @JeffreyKeefer @FromPhDtoLife #adjunctchat People were telling me my blog inspired them 2 study philosophy. So I’d be… 2/18/2014 16:31
@IshaiBarnoy #adjunctchat @Melissa_Venable @LitProfSuz Yeah, this raised a firestorm on my twitter feed. Mostly disagreement. Vicious disagreement. 2/18/2014 16:31
@FromPhDtoLife @JeffreyKeefer @Comprof1 @CamelsHammers Me neither, not directly: But everything I tweet/blog counts as marketing #adjunctchat 2/18/2014 16:31

@JeffreyKeefer @CamelsHammers @FromPhDtoLife @IshaiBarnoy Did the posts somehow parallel the work you did on all those courses you taught? #AdjunctChat 2/18/2014 16:31
@CamelsHammers @IshaiBarnoy @Melissa_Venable @LitProfSuz #adjunctchat Really? who disagreed? 2/18/2014 16:31
@JeffreyKeefer @CamelsHammers Are you still teaching and juggling the many #adjunct courses you taught? #AdjunctChat 2/18/2014 16:32
@Comprof1 @CamelsHammers true, but I just don’t have time to be so prolific. More important to be consistent if you want following #AdjunctChat 2/18/2014 16:32
@JeffreyKeefer @FromPhDtoLife @CamelsHammers @IshaiBarnoy Also in blog form? #AdjunctChat 2/18/2014 16:32
@IshaiBarnoy #adjunctchat @CamelsHammers @Melissa_Venable @LitProfSuz Sorry, I won’t out anybody. But they’re loud enough. See if you can search for’em. 2/18/2014 16:33
@JeffreyKeefer @CamelsHammers Did you intend to build traffic at first? #AdjunctChat 2/18/2014 16:33
@CamelsHammers @Comprof1 #adjunctchat I would choose quality over quantity. But people don’t regularly check slow updating blogs. Need to habituate them. 2/18/2014 16:33
@FromPhDtoLife @CamelsHammers @IshaiBarnoy @Melissa_Venable @LitProfSuz lol many. See #engagedacademics for example. #adjunctchat 2/18/2014 16:33

@Melissa_Venable @JustCallMeAngVS #adjunctchat Agreed! There’s something to be said for focusing on the positive. 2/18/2014 16:35
@CamelsHammers @JeffreyKeefer #adjunctchat Took a year for a viral explosion. Then another year until I got on a major platform and became successful. 2/18/2014 16:35
@CamelsHammers @JeffreyKeefer #adjunctchat It’s a commitment. I would only recommend it to writers who value their independence to write freely above all 2/18/2014 16:36
@Comprof1 @CamelsHammers I learned to announce on twitter and LinkedIn #Adjunctchat interesting that I still have some posts popular written 4 yrs ago 2/18/2014 16:36
@LitProfSuz #adjunctchat I use my prof blogging as a place to share ideas, connect & store things I want to remember to use. Like a 10 yr old scrapbook 2/18/2014 16:37
@CamelsHammers @Comprof1 #adjunctchat Are you able to build so many different blogs, splitting your energies and audiences like that? 2/18/2014 16:37
@AdjunctChat Still time to participate in today’s #AdjunctChat with @CamelsHammers talking about his adjunct blogging #AltAc #PostAc #ECRchat #PhDchat 2/18/2014 16:37
@rcbatp #adjunctchat — pant pant — meeting (grr) TIMING is everything for me — Migrant Intellectual was too far ahead to be effective so I waited 2/18/2014 16:37
@IshaiBarnoy #adjunctchat @Melissa_Venable @JustCallMeAngVS I’m starting to see this “focus on the positive” philosophy as … not available to everyone. 2/18/2014 16:37
@FromPhDtoLife MT @JustCallMeAngVS: @Melissa_Venable #adjunctchat I like blogs with direct experience and ones that are free from the ‘woe is me’ attitude 2/18/2014 16:37
@JustCallMeAngVS One has to be careful with social networking though if one has a full time job at a university #adjunctchat @Melissa_Venable 2/18/2014 16:38

@FromPhDtoLife @Melissa_Venable @JustCallMeAngVS Absolutely! I think that’s what gotten me visitors #adjunctchat Personal, positive content & tone 2/18/2014 16:38
@JeffreyKeefer @Comprof1 @CamelsHammers I have still not figured out how to leverage #LinkedIn and think we need an #AdjunctChat on it for adjuncts! 2/18/2014 16:38
@Melissa_Venable @IshaiBarnoy #AdjunctChat Can you speak more to positivity being unavailable to everyone? 2/18/2014 16:38
@CamelsHammers RT @LitProfSuz: #adjunctchat I use my prof blogging as a place to share ideas, connect & store things I want to remember to use. Like a 10 … 2/18/2014 16:39
@JustCallMeAngVS @IshaiBarnoy @Melissa_Venable Yes because many times not much is positive about being paid less for (mostly) doing better work #adjunctchat 2/18/2014 16:39
@JeffreyKeefer RT @FromPhDtoLife: @CamelsHammers @IshaiBarnoy @Melissa_Venable @LitProfSuz lol many. See #engagedacademics for example. #adjunctchat 2/18/2014 16:39
@JeffreyKeefer @FromPhDtoLife @CamelsHammers @IshaiBarnoy @Melissa_Venable @LitProfSuz Not familiar with the #engagedacademics hashtag #AdjunctChat 2/18/2014 16:39
@Melissa_Venable @JustCallMeAngVS #adjunctchat Careful in terms of … ? I think you’re right, but that it applies to everyone using social media. 2/18/2014 16:40
@JeffreyKeefer @LitProfSuz @CamelsHammers @IshaiBarnoy @Melissa_Venable I have heard that, as none of this social “stuff” counts toward tenure #AdjunctChat 2/18/2014 16:40
@CamelsHammers #adjunctchat I try to model and enforce academic standards of civility, which is a huge challenge in the blogosphere 2/18/2014 16:40
@rcbatp This one went sort of viral: a personal narrative http://t.co/ST4BsFr1SW — featured on @AJStream — agree — make it personal #adjunctchat 2/18/2014 16:40
@JeffreyKeefer @LitProfSuz @CamelsHammers @IshaiBarnoy @Melissa_Venable Of course, adjuncts are not bound by a tenure dance #AdjunctChat 2/18/2014 16:40
@Comprof1 @CamelsHammers 3 are group blogs used by students, also I write w/ my sister trying to create writing credentials. Only 1 mine. #adjunctchat 2/18/2014 16:40
@JustCallMeAngVS @Melissa_Venable #adjunctchat Careful because said employer would probably not like knowing a prized employee is also teaching adjunct 2/18/2014 16:41
@JeffreyKeefer @CamelsHammers Why was writing to be read such a passion for you? #AdjunctChat 2/18/2014 16:41
@CamelsHammers Yes, your blog is very personable,appealing, optimistic, feels like you offer hope to people. I liked it a lot @FromPhDtoLife #adjunctchat 2/18/2014 16:41
@FromPhDtoLife @JustCallMeAngVS @IshaiBarnoy @Melissa_Venable I started current blog only when I was feeling good about myself. Important #adjunctchat 2/18/2014 16:41
@CamelsHammers when I checked it out a month ago or so @FromPhDtoLife #adjunctchat 2/18/2014 16:42
@JeffreyKeefer @CamelsHammers @JeffreyKeefer What do you mean “got on a major platform and became successful.”? #AdjunctChat 2/18/2014 16:42
@IshaiBarnoy #adjunctchat @Melissa_Venable Parallel to “positivity” as discourse philosophy is insistence on “civil discourse.” Cuts out the uninitiated. 2/18/2014 16:42

@LitProfSuz @CamelsHammers @Comprof1 #adjunctchat I’m simple, use Blogger. Have a clear audience/purpose for each. Helps me stay in the writing mode. 2/18/2014 16:42
@CamelsHammers @JustCallMeAngVS @Melissa_Venable #adjunctchat yes, I decided self-expression is more important than full time work at a university. 2/18/2014 16:42
@JeffreyKeefer @Comprof1 @LitProfSuz @FromPhDtoLife @CamelsHammers How do you have time for all them? #AdjunctChat 2/18/2014 16:43
@IshaiBarnoy #adjunctchat @FromPhDtoLife @JustCallMeAngVS @Melissa_Venable I started writing because I had time. 2/18/2014 16:43
@Melissa_Venable @JustCallMeAngVS True. We sign employment contracts – other work sometimes encouraged, sometimes not-check what you agreed to. #adjunctchat 2/18/2014 16:43
@Comprof1 @JustCallMeAngVS @Melissa_Venable always need to be careful, but don’t use as excuse NOT to. #adjunctchat NEVER talk about students. 2/18/2014 16:43
@IshaiBarnoy #adjunctchat @CamelsHammers @JustCallMeAngVS @Melissa_Venable Some would call that a conscious pay cut. 2/18/2014 16:44
@FromPhDtoLife @CamelsHammers Thanks! Hope so. Part of my intention to be those things. It’s important to me, content reflects personal values #adjunctchat 2/18/2014 16:44
@CamelsHammers @JeffreyKeefer #adjunctchat Wanted 2 b read for the usual reasons:desire to matter, belief important things needed to be said, ego, career 2/18/2014 16:44
@Comprof1 @JustCallMeAngVS @Melissa_Venable but I do talk about teaching.also I keep professional social media separate from private #adjunctchat 2/18/2014 16:44

@CamelsHammers @Comprof1 @JustCallMeAngVS @Melissa_Venable #adjunctchat Will only rarely and obliquely and with great generality discuss students 2/18/2014 16:46
