Short Update

I wanted to update about some changes and new features to The Counseling Geek. Yesterday, I migrated over to a new blog platform — Blogger (a Google service). I felt that the blog software provided by Wix.com was a bit constricting and did not provide the customization, traffic, and support that I was looking for. So thus…the new site and look. I am still in the process of tweaking it to my liking and updating for readability and…

Fundraising Update: Thank you to our supporters so far!

Fundraising Update: Thank you to our supporters so far!

Update and recognizing donors thus far… I wanted to give the readers an update about the scholarship fundraising efforts. The counseling community has responded and have donated to support the effort of sending counselors to one of the best professional growth opportunities each year – the ASCA National Conference. At the time of this writing, we are 95% ($30 short of goal) to the goal of $700. I propose to raise that goal to $1050…

The Geekly Update: Why so quiet, you ask?

The Geekly Update: Why so quiet, you ask?

If you have been paying attention, I have not posted anything since the 8th of August — which is a long time in the blogosphere. I have many ideas brewing and another interview I would like to get setup in the coming month, but I wanted to give you a very short update as to why such a long silence from me. I recently moved and started a new job in the Lake Tahoe area as the high school counselor at a small high school. We moved…

School Counseling Technology Series: Dropbox

School Counseling Technology Series: Dropbox

Cloud-based file storage wünderkind! I have been using Dropbox for almost two years now, in both my professional and personal life. I use it so much that I now rarely store any documents on my local “My Docuements” folder, but most everything goes into Dropbox. Started in 2007 by MIT graduates, it quickly gained a strong following. They run on the “Freemium” model, which grants new users a free allocation of 2GB of…

Follow-Up: My Interview Kit

Follow-Up: My Interview Kit

Marketing Myself and Being Prepared On Tuesday, I posted a video blog about the process I took (and a process you can take too!) to construct a digital professional portfolio. This week I have been busy constructing my interview kit and I wanted to share that with you as well. Looking at it, I feel like it is a lot – but I think will be well prepared to answer the questions and show evidence with the arsenal I bring with me…

Remembering Why I Love LucidChart – An Acrostic

Remembering Why I Love LucidChart – An Acrostic

The start of another school year spells many things for me (and other school counselors around the country). Sometimes it spells stress from the constant over-eager parents to get “just the right schedule because my kid is the most important kid in the school” but sometimes it spells relief. I don’t know about you but about the time mid-August hits – I am usually about ready to go back. Now after a few weeks, I am…
