This is a call out to all bloggers either writing from the perspective of EAP or ESP or writing about their EAP/ESP teaching environment. I am opening two collective Pinterest boards. One is the EAP/ESP bloggers’ showcase and one is for your new EAP/ESP posts:
As we all know EAP/ESP is a relatively new field and finding fellow bloggers takes a lot of hunting around. There seems to be a void in the EAP/ESP blog link up and Pinterest seems a great way to bring us all together.
What is Pinterest?
Pinterest for those of you who are unfamiliar with it is a social media sharing platform where you pin an image that is linked to the URL of your post. It creates a visual board of all the pins and you can write a brief description. The great part is that it can be repinned to other people’s boards and so on. A little bit like a visual Twitter. If you don’t have a Pinterest account please click here . If you need an invite please email me @ Sharonzspace@gmail.com.
So why don’t we come together and collaborate on Pinterest as EA/ESP bloggers. That way you can easily keep up with what’s new in the EAP/ESP blogger world Here are the details of each board:
If you blog is EAP/ESP focused please leave your blog URL in the comments box below or alternatively you can send your blog URL and JPEG image to go on the pinterest board to my email address at the end of the post. You will then be added to the EAP/ESP Blogger showcase. I will also create a badge that you can add to your widget area to show that you are an EAP/ESP friendly blogger. That way we can all grow our EAP/ESP PLN.
If you sign up for the Blogger’s showcase above you can then become a collaborator on the EAP/ESP Collective Board. This will be the more dynamic of the two. As a collaborator you can pin any new post that you write as long as it is either been written in an ESP/EAP environment or has an EAP/ESP focus. That way we can all stay upto date with what is going on in the EAP/ESP world more effectively than we do now. Please send your Pinterest URL to the email address below.
So to recap if you want to be a part of the two boards please send an email to Sharonzspace@gmail.com. In the email please include your:
1)Blog URL, JPEG image and a 60 word summary of your blog.
2)and if you have completed step 1 and want to join the collaborative EAP/ESP Collective please send your Pinterest URL.
I look forward to connecting and collaborating with you all.
