Twitter Take Two

Some of you may remember my generalized anxiety about Twitter discussed here

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:

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!

I've been avoiding Twitter - I already have enough to spend, er waste, time on!! The couple times I tried it, I got sucked in big time...

Jo, I'm off to look for you on Twitter!

Erica, you too!

See how inspired I am, I'm on a twittermission.

Haha! "The" Twitter. I need to go read these other two posts but I have severe Twitter anxiety. It feels like high school where I try to talk and no one hears me so eventually I just bow out.

I know! I liked Jo's description of it as spitting into the wind. That's exactly what it feels like!
