I’m not sure how I feel about it yet, in part because I have no idea what I’m doing. When I informed my Facebook friends, one of them immediately responded with #sellout. I replied, #haha.
So why do it then? I’ve read how useful a tool it can be, especially for writers. It’s a direct link to people in positions to offer advice, among other possibilities, and a way to build an audience. So it was time to jump on the bandwagon. My first tweet was, “Yes, I have succumbed.”
I’ve added the feed to my blog, and I give you fair warning it may be a little blank for a while until I get the hang of it. I’ll share any useful insight I learn about this along the way as well, as I’m sure to be on a huge learning curve for a while I can imagine. And I give you this promise – I will do my best to never use the following hashtags: blessed, selfie, nofilter, ROFL, YOLO, or any other annoying tag I’ve seen flung about.
I’m open to any advice, tips, or people of interest to follow if you’d like to share. Facebook, Twitter, and self-promoting, oh my!
Have a great weekend everyone!

Great. Looking forward to when you figure it out and share the news. I’ve been on Twitter a while and I just find in mind numbing.
It’s literally one more thing to do, and I already find my time so scattered among all the other social media things we’re told to try to utilize. I recently read an article which referenced how you can put the various things you might follow into lists so you don’t have to see everything all at once. So I figured, why not? When I find it again, I’ll post it.
