One of the things that amazes me is the spreading awareness of my work. Despite my lackadaisical efforts at promoting myself, friends from across the U.S. and around the world continuously let me know they saw my writing, they heard my ideas or they ran into someone running a curriculum or program I wrote.
At the risk of appearing too self-promoting, here are some of the citations I’ve collected:

What particularly excites me is that this kind of usage is resultant from 5 years work in which I traveled nationwide and internationally to promote the message of youth voice and meaningful student involvement. The publications that have cited me have included my writing focused on cooperative games and volunteerism, too, which I have really liked writing.
The question for me is how I can assist others in promoting their messages, too. The Freechild Project listserve has been a fair tool for spreading international messages about youth voice; is there another avenue that can be as useful?
