Social Media

I started this blog so that I could find a place to scream at the world, where I wouldn't feel so alone. And as the time has gone by, I've found that I enjoy yelling, crying, and sharing my ideas (at least those I can publicly share) with the world. There was one drawback to the blog--no real interaction. You lovely readers frequently leave me messages and I respond when I get the chance via email (if you leave your email address), but it wasn't *real* interaction, so I have expanded with other social media.

A couple of months ago, I added a Facebook page since I'm on there all of the time anyway. It has helped breed that interaction I so desire. If you haven't checked it, please do so and introduce yourself.

Then one of my favorite bloggy friends jumped to Twitter and the question became, should I do it too? So many other bloggers are on Twitter and there seems to be so many conversations/posts that get started there. The thought of joining in on the fun intrigued me. But, I didn't really want to do it. I was on Twitter and deactivated about three years ago. I joined when Twitter was new. I had less than ten people that I followed who weren't politicos or news agencies. I had only a handful of followers. It just wasn't interesting. I had learned enough for my purposes as an electronic discovery and evidence expert and left.

But now, Twitter is different. Everyone knows what it is. No longer is Twitter the new social media on the block and it is being used widely. So, because the neighborhood seemed so much more interesting, I jumped back on Twitter. I'm hoping all of you will help me find it more interesting. Give me suggestions. Tell me who is fun to follow. And how do I get rid of those spammers easily? (I've only been back about 5 hours and already have a spammer.)


  1. I am so glad you joined.
    I am hooked. :)

  2. I am on Twitter and have been for some time. I just can't get into it. I don't know why exactly. I feel like to really be "good" at Twitter you need to be sort of constantly using it. I don't want to do that really. But I will follow you! :)

  3. I just can't get into the Twitter either. I go there to put up my blog posts and that's about it. I follow some of the authors that I enjoy reading, but I don't really need to get a drunken tweet from them every two minutes from a party they're attending. My life life is just not interesting enough to tweet about it all day long.

  4. this is nice post..i like social media


Having a child with a CHD is like being given an extra sense---the true ability to appreciate life. Each breath, each hug, each meal is a blessing when you've watched your child live off a ventilator, trapped in an ICU bed, being fed through a tube. Each minute is a miracle when you've watched your child almost die and come back to you.
