I know what you’re thinking, “you know, I don’t think I have enough Art Teaches Hate Glitter in my life. How can I get more?” Great question, and don’t worry, I’ve got you covered.
Or maybe you’re thinking, “Hey, I already follow you on _______. Why do I need to follow you anywhere else?” Another great question, and in a nutshell, you’re probably missing out on stuff. Not necessarily good stuff, but stuff nonetheless.
What You’ll Find There: Blog post links, random status updates, links to things I think are cool, random links to my Instagram pics… quick commenting and reactions allow you to easily interact with ATHG content and the art education community following ATHG.
The Downside: Facebook doesn’t show everyone everything. It’s kind of hit or miss sometimes.
What You’ll Find There: Bloglovin’ is what I use to follow all of my favorite blogs. In 2013, when Google eliminated their reader, I easily switched my list over to Bloglovin’. Granted, a lot of those blogs have since gone belly-up, but Bloglovin’ has only gotten better over the years. If you want to make sure you don’t miss any posts, this is one way to do so.
The Downside: It can be glitchy at times, and every now and again the feed goes down, but these issues occur so infrequently that it isn’t a big deal, in my opinion.
What You’ll Find There: Do you ever wonder if I actually teach real students? Do you ever wonder if my real students actually make real artwork? Believe it or not, the answer to both questions is, yes. I don’t share student work often on the blog, but I do on Instagram, as well as other behind the scenes pics and links to my blog posts.
The Downside: I can’t really think of anything.
What You’ll Find There: Confession: I don’t use this, but I know many other people do. I use Bloglovin’ as my blog reader, but if you have a WordPress blog, you can easily follow Art Teachers Hate Glitter and keep up to date on blog posts. You can use the drop down menu at the top of this page to follow via WordPress.
The Downside: You have to have a WordPress account to use it (I think).
What You’ll Find There: Lesson ideas, classroom management and organization ideas, supply management ideas, things I think are funny, and a bunch of other stuff I think is “pin-worthy”.
The Downside: Content can get lost in in all of the sponsored and suggested pins (yuck).
What You’ll Find There: You follow Art Teachers Hate Glitter by signing up for email notifications. Each time Art Teachers Hate Glitter has a new post, you’ll get an email notification. I will never use your email for any other purpose. You can use the drop down menu at the top of this page to sign up.
The Downside: Email can be bothersome, and if you get as much as I do, the good stuff can get buried under a lot of junk.
What You’ll Find There: If you ever wanted to know what I think about politics, women’s rights, educational policies, other hot topics and causes, and books and TV shows I enjoy, this is the place to follow me. Of course, you’ll also find links to my latest blog posts and Instagram pics.
The Downside: Twitter is very fleeting. It is very easy to miss out on things, and quite frankly, I don’t tweet often enough to constantly show up in your feed, but maybe that’s a good thing.
