About a year ago I took a blogging class that extolled the virtues of having a Twitter account and Facebook page for your blog. So, being a good rule follower, I signed up for both. And watched in horror as I had barely any Twitter followers and only a handful of Facebook likes. For a long time.
But then I got over my embarrassment and just let it be. Slowly but surely, I got a few more “likes”, but not much was happening on Twitter. Until December when I got a smartphone. (Yes, I know that 99% of you probably had a smartphone since the dawn of time, but I’m married to Captain Frugal, who is really the only person whom I talk to on my cell, and we waited until my old phone died.)
With my Smartphone, it’s easy to check Twitter, send tweets, follow people, and be followed back. I’m having a good time tweeting and replying to tweets that people send out into the Twitter-verse.
And then there was this week, which just proves that anyone can have fun on Twitter. Because I’m nobody special, yet Twitter made me feel all warm and fuzzy.
First, I mentioned the Berenstain Bears in a tweet.
@experbadmom Thank you!

Then, I tweeted Ladies’ Home Journal about a Haiti blog post.

Finally, I tweeted Bryan Adams, my most loved rock star of all time, yes, he of Summer of ’69 fame, and he replied!
@experbadmom thanks v much, glad the music helped!

If you’re not on Twitter, go for it.
Now, if somebody would only help me with Pinterest, Instagram, and Google+…
