To Twitter or Not

     Well, it's official ... I've lost what little bit of a brain I had. First of all, you have to understand, I am the most unorganized person in the world. I make list on top of list trying to keep up and remember what I'm doing. With this new blog I've even started a journal to keep up with all the sign-in names and passwords I've created recently.
     So, why have I lost my brain (or mind)? I joined Twitter yesterday and have no clue what I'm doing.
     I was already on Facebook and didn't understand it, so why would I join something else? Just lost my brain is the only reason I know.
     Facebook is interesting. It's a neat place to connect with people you haven't heard of in years and share photos with everyone. I just don't seem to have enough time to participate in all the games and swaps they have. When I don't respond to someone who's sent me this or that, I feel guilty that I've left them hanging.
     So why join Twitter? I'm not sure. I talked with a friend yesterday who is a computer tech wizard and he tried to explain it to me. In general, it sounds good. Just not sure I'll be able to keep up with it either.
     Cleo (Coyle) recommended I check into Twitter since I was going to be blogging about book reviews I had done. I can see where it would help generate more traffic to one's blog. So, I'm giving it a go. I make only visit and read, but at least I am finding my way back to the Internet Superhighway after being at the rest stop way too long.
     Any thoughts on Twitter or Facebook? With all these new venues, does anyone write letters anymore? Just wondering.
     Hope to have a another review to post tomorrow, if I can get everything to work right. Hope everyone has a safe and carefree Saturday.


  1. Thanks for stopping by my blog today, Mason. I've posted about Twitter a couple of times, including last Friday. It seems there are some who love it (like me) as long as they can keep control of the time spent there. Others don't get it. It takes time to catch on to everything, but it might generate readers for your blog posts. As for Facebook, like you I enjoy being there, but I don't play games, take surveys, etc.

  2. I think Twitter will take some time to get use to, but could be a handy tool.


I'd love to hear your thoughts on today's post. Thanks for dropping by.
