As you know, technology and I aren’t exactly good buds.
Sure, DVR proves useful when I know I’ll be out, and I want to watch Claire act neurotic as she tries to parent her children.
And I find FaceTime magical and a little Jetson-like, but totally useful since my family is far away.
And for crying out loud, I post on this blog, which means I met you, and the fact is, I like you, as in a lot, a lot.
However, I struggle with social media because I feel as if there are already so many people shouting agendas, yelling about posts, screaming the benefits or contests, and hosting online parties. Plus, I ask myself, do I want to add my noise to all of that clamor, and people, does anyone really care?
Plus, there’s the issue that I ache for slow, and posting witty tweets and reading countless retweets doesn’t exactly sound peaceful.
Oh, and there’s the fact that I tend to be a smidge elitist, and if “everyone’s doing it, “ I refuse.
But that brings me to last week. I missed some serious opportunities because I turn my back on social media, and it kind of feels as if I soaked up too much sun and one of my sisters came up from behind and smacked me on the back, hard. Ouch.
Therefore, bring on the bird.
I joined Twitter. Don’t expect me to embrace it. In fact, plan on me acting like the pouty kid in the back of the class until I figure out what the heck a hashtag is.
Oh, and if you happen to be on Twitter, I’d love for you to find me. So we can peek at what each other says in 140 characters or less (Serisouly, I don't even know if I created that link right. Someone tell me how to fix it if I'm wrong!).
Oh, and now that I’m practically a social media guru, you should know that I’m also on Google +. Yep, I don’t have much to say there either, but I’m working on that one too.
Oh, and don’t bother asking about Facebook. A girl can only handle so many social media outlets, and at this time, I find myself maxed out.
Questions for you: Let’s discuss Google + and Twitter. Love them? Hate them? Advice on either. Come on, I need it.
