Happy International Transliteracy Day

September 8 is International Literacy Day! Here’s to developing our literacy and transliteracy skills.

Transliteracy?

Transliteracy = the ability to read and write using multiple media, including traditional print media, electronic devices and online tools. (Thank you, WordSpy!)

    That said, what’s important is sharing the skills that make us literate in the traditional and innovative web circles. I appreciate the patience of everyone who has taught me language skills across the board … and globe!
