At our Michigan Blogger Meet Up yesterday, I was inspired to create a Twitter account. Erin (from Kleinspiration) gave an speech about how fabulous the networking opportunities are on Twitter. So, I can't decide if I just "finally folded" or if I was convinced by positive peer pressure...but I did it! I was inspired and I did it. Thank you, Erin!
So...I set up my account. Made my first tweet (is that what those are called?) and then I waited for an hour...waited for my first follower. Nothin'. Maybe it's because I need to announce that I'm officially a tweeter to all of my blogging friends?
I already called two of my real life friends. Here are there responses to my exciting "I have a Twitter account" news.
1. (my husband) "Lovely. Do you even know how to do that?"
2. (a not-so techy friend from school) "What in the world is Twitter? Gillow, it's summer vacation."
So, I can't exactly count on those 2 to "follow" me. If you would like to connect with me via Twitter, you can click on the cute little birdie button on my sidebar. Tomorrow, I'll figure out how to get back to my account with fingers crossed. Hopefully, I will end up with a follower so I can tweet to someone other than myself. By the end of the week, my goal is to figure out how to tweet from my phone (no laughing). :)
