Some of you may remember my generalized anxiety about Twitter discussed here http://www.johannagarth.com/2011/04/twitter-me-worried.html
I got some great Twittering advice from that post but then decided to ignore it all. Despite the fact that normally I love to try anything new for some reason I was being a stick in the mud about Twitter. I couldn't/wouldn't/didn't want to Tweet. And then something happened.
Alison Deluca who is a friend, writer and all-around inspirational person wrote a fantastic blog column about Twitter. You can read it here: http://alisondeluca.blogspot.com/2011/05/social-media-for-authors-pt-1-new-star.html
I took a deep breathe, followed her step-by-step instructions and now I'm tweeting! Today I'm going to try to do the #FF Follow Friday she discusses. I'm also going to tell myself that by putting a "the" in front of #FF I didn't just sound exactly like my mom when she tells me she needs to research something on "the web".
Wish me luck, or better yet, Tweet me!
