Whenever I talked to anyone about my secret desire to start using twitter, their response was similar to this:
"Finley, do you think I should use twitter?"
Yes, on just about all fronts, I was told NOT to twitter. I don't know why. It seems awesome because you can follow RYAN SEACREST. I really wanted to... and so I made an account. And have tweeted one thing. I'm kind of excited.
I think, for me, twitter is a sort of micro-blogging. Sometimes Finley does something cute, or my kids do something weird or my husband does something awesome, and I want to share it with the intently listening world--but it isn't enough to justify its very own blog post. Now I can barf all of my mini-little-thoughts into the sidebar of my blog and they will be recorded forever.
My fear with blogging and facebook and all the sites we create about ourselves is that people will begin to think that I think I am really awesome and worth listening to. Let's get one thing straight, I'm not awesome. I'm not very cool, and I know it. But sometimes I have cute/funny things to share and there are some people who like to hear about it. Like my mom.
So feel free to follow me (and Victoria since I can't do anything alone and bullied her into it), or tell me to follow you on twitter. Or you can read about the little things that happen in a day over in the sidebar.
