Tweet, Tweet, here I come!
Now there is something I never expected to say. But yes, I've finally given Twitter a try and to my surprise I like it.
Why did I wait so long and why am I surprised? Well, I don't have a smart phone and I never really thought it worked all that well if you couldn't participate on the go. Since I'm home most of the time, I can tweet using my computer and I'm still keeping up with all the crafty people I'm following so far just fine.
I'm surprised because what can someone long winded like me really say in 140 characters? That's nothing - an introduction, a conversational detour but not really meaningful. Well, again I'm surprised because you can get a meaningful thought out in a few words. Maybe this Twitter stuff will teach me something and I'll get those videos under 10 minutes after all :-)
Most tweets have an attachment so you really don't need a lot of words, just a link to something else pretty, entertaining or useful.
In my first couple of days on Twitter, I learned that postage was going up so I bought more stamps, my favorite show General Hospital will likely continue past Sept of this year (Yippee!), and saw lots of cool projects linked in scrapbooking tweets.
Are you on Twitter? If so, would you follow me? I'll follow you. I can see that this works best if you follow lots of people with common interests.
Most of my Tweets will be crafty in nature. I'll probably Tweet a couple of times a day with things I find on-line - interesting projects, sales, new product available.

Thanks and have a wonderful day!
