This week I have been busy expanding my knowledge of the world wide web and I would like to take this opportunity to tell you about some of other the ways you can engage with us on line.
We have a Facebook fan page where you can follow our updates but more interestingly you can join in our discussions. I aim to have a new question for discussion every week from August onwards. Last week we asked which was the first Shakespeare play you loved and why – read the answers here from being seduced by Richard III to falling in love with a little red book, the answers are many and various.
Here you will also find a regular slot on Wednesdays where we ask visitors how they first encountered Shakespeare. Here is my answer to the question.
Find out what others think every Wednesday.
And because we are running an exhibition about Shakespeare’s female characters we are asking people who their favourite female characters are. Check out this regular update on face book on Friday’s from August. Here is my answer to the question.
You can also check out these wonderful image collections on line showcasing some of Shakespeare’s women And if you are local do come and visit the exhibition.
If you would like to take part in this series and you are visiting Stratford why not send me a tweet or tweet @shakespeareBT when you are here and if I am in my office I will arrange to meet you and make a video for the series you would like to be part of.
We are also hoping to have a photo of the week competition, so if you have snapped a stunning picture of something Shakespeare related why not post it to our facebook page. The best submission will be highlighted every week.
Through exploring Shakespeare on the internet in discovered lots of amazing projects that are going on around the world. I would like to be able to highlight one of these projects every week. If you know of something special going on do let me know via twitter or facebook or by leaving a comment here.
If you want to say hello, or keep a finger on the pulse of the Shakespeare Birthplace Trust, please follow us on twitter.
As you read this I am actually on holiday in Anglesey, but when I return on August 2nd I will be getting busy keeping up with out on line community and I would love to hear from you.
