A Twittery Update

Remember last week when I told you I'd dipped my toe into the Twitter pool? Well, it's been a whole week, and I thought I'd give you a crooked-type review of how it's going. Notice I did not say "gone", past tense; I'm still there.

So this twitter thing? While I can see how addicting it could be, I do agree that (as with any controlled substance) if used carefully, it can be entertaining and a GREAT way to meet people with common interests.

Case in point: Since the beginning of my adventure last Sunday, my blog comments have increased several-fold (and we know it is ALL about the comments, right?), and I made an etsy sale! My first! More people are following me, and it really is a lot of fun.

I love the people connection, and that the varied interests across the group lead to an expanded exposure to things I normally would not have seen. But you know what? I am going to stop now, because one of my first Twitter friends posted about this very topic the same day I was drafting this post, so instead of repeating what she said (though she did a MUCH better job than *I* could have done), I'll just send you over to
her post. It is really quite eloquent!

In conclusion, I think in moderation, Twitter is a fine (and fun) diversion. I will not stop stamping to twitter on Twitter! Nononono! In fact, I am getting all sorts of ideas for cards from the things people say, so it is really another source of inspiration, and some days I can really use that!

Tonight, well, tonight my printer and Cuttlebug and Nesties all decided to throw fits, so I put them to bed early without dessert. Too early for ME to turn in, so I am doing a little catching up on my Google Reader and some tweets. Harmless, it is.

Tomorrow, it's back to stamping. I plan to wrassle with the printer & Cuttlebug & Nesties until I win! I WILL WIN! Wish me luck.

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. You're a pretty good writer yourself, and I'm enjoying your blog. I love seeing you make cards from something tweeted.

  2. Hmmmm...I may have to take up Twitter.

  3. Okay, I will check out this twitter thing...


I'd love to hear what you really think! :-)
