I’m excited to announce my co-edited collection, The Dialectic of Digital Culture, will be published mid-September! I contributed a chapter about digital advocacy anchored in an analysis of Lori Duron’s mommy blog RaisingMyRainbow. Other contributions explore the dark web, Etsy, #metoo, net neutrality, privacy, surrogacy, music, and Trump’s presidency. I am very proud of the rigorous discussion about digital culture this collection will encourage as well as the diverse phenomena explored by contributors!
July 28th is my ONE YEAR BLOGAVERSARY!
I’ve reviewed over 150 children’s picture books, including over 100 LGBTQ children’s picture books. I’ve also dabbled in middle-grade and YA reviews.
My goals for the year were to get 2500 blog followers and 2500 Twitter followers – I did it! I love that so many people are using my blog as a resource to find books that meet their needs.
I’ll have a big giveaway to thank everyone for their support on the 28th – stay tuned!
I am working to spread the word about RaiseThemRighteous! I am on Twitter at @jlmiller516 and on Goodreads at https://www.goodreads.com/RaiseThemRighteous! Please, follow me across platforms and share my blog with friends and family.
I’ve been posting socially engaged, diverse, and LGBTQ* #kidlit book reviews for about four months, and plan on adding middle grade and young adult literature to the blog in January!
I’m also a @CybilsAwards judge for easy readers and early chapter books – I love it! And, this year I’m going to be a Multicultural Children’s Book Day Reviewer for the first time. I love that these things exist and am so happy to participate!
