In her second blog, Toria shares how #TinyVoiceTuesday was born.
The hashtag is a place where all can be heard, ask questions and feel part of a community- something we need now more than ever.
If you read my last post, you will know that I decided to swim in the deep waters of ‘Educational Twitter’ relatively recently. I dived in enthusiastically, joined as much as I could and yet my questions were still falling on deaf ears. I had joined forums, I was taking an
active part, so what was I doing wrong? Big voices on Twitter would ask a question and within seconds they would have hundreds of answers. I would ask a question and maybe five hours later I would have one response – if I was lucky!
So, one evening, when I felt utterly disgruntled, I voiced my frustrations. I was fed up as I had been on a follow/ follow-back forum and less than half of the people I had followed, had followed me back. I was even more annoyed with those who had larger followings as none of them had followed me back that day! Anyhow, I took to twitter and tweeted about the big voices and the little voices, myself and others discussed not feeling heard and from
that thread, a new idea emerged. This idea would give tinies like me a voice (I had about 300 followers at that point). On that night, #TinyVoiceTuesday was conceived. Read the full post here and I hope to welcome you all to #TinyVoiceTuesday and #TinyVoiceTuesdayUnites incredibly soon.
