On Twitter


You might have seen Twitter updates are now featured in the top right hand corner of my blog. I like this for a couple of reasons-- one, that it provides fresh content on here even when I am not able to write a whole blog post and two, it's an entirely different way to provide a glimpse into what my days are comprised of. My husband says Twitter is a fad and he will never do it. (He said the same thing about blogging when I began long ago, a-hem.) But I think it's fun and enjoy the fact that I can post an update on Twitter and it appears simultaneously on both my Facebook page and here on the ole blog. That's killing several birds with one stone, which always makes me happy! And now that I have a fancy new cell phone with a keyboard, I can even update from the road... that's very cool and makes me feel uber technological, which is a rare feeling for me. So I am enjoying it while it lasts!

Note: my new cell phone (which arrived via FedEx yesterday) is my "good thing" to share today... I am sure eventually it will just be a phone to me, but for now it is a fun new toy!

OH I HAVE ENVY!!! I am hoping to get a new phone in October. And I can hardly stand it!!

I love Facebook but I haven't gotten the hang of Twitter...guess I will work on it.

My good thing for the day? I had a migraine last night and it is GONE this morning. WOO HOO!!

My good thing today is that my brother in law will finally be home safe and sound from his tour of duty in Iraq. Praising God today!

Oh, can I have two good things today? Reading For the Write Reasons and today's reading and Bible Study was super good and right on time! Thanks!

As far as Twitter is concerned, I have been using it for a couple of months. I agree with you that it enables me to have regular updates on my blog. But I am still very back and forth with it. The jury is still out.

Thanks for the good thing posts...I really like the idea!

Okay, I skimmed the article you linked to and it helped make my decision that I'm definitely in Curt's camp on this one. It's a great article and very detailed, but all those techie details boggled my brain to the point that I think I'll hold off on Twitter at least for a while. I can barely keep my blogs and facebook updated as it is. But at least I know where I need to go for help now should I change my mind. Thanks.

Glad you like it and your new phone.
