I had previous experience with Search Engine Optimization and started to apply it to both the website and the social media at Shoreline Community College when I was given relevant roles there. As soon as I saw an opportunity with YouTube videos I took advantage of the growing content and experimented with the channel to see if we could both attract new viewers and use it as a convenient teaching tool for instructors. I'm excited about the results and was pretty satisfied with the methods I describe in the chapter.
Being included in a peer reviewed publication was exciting and enriching for me as a librarian. I mostly engaged with Nina Verishagen, exchanging many drafts and getting so much appreciated feedback. But I also had a wonderful experience getting a sneak peek at one of the other chapters. I enjoyed the other chapter so much and found it enjoyable and exciting to pass along what I hoped was valuable feedback.
From a personal perspective as a writer, I found the feedback enlightening and interesting. There were so many different writing styles. My attention was mostly on correctly grammar and I noticed that my editor was so much more interested in making sure the text was clear and easy to use.
