Becoming a TweetHead

Today I came to the realization that I am well on my way to becoming a “tweethead”.

I went home for a night, home unfortunately does not have high-speed. Dial-up caused me to not be capable of checking Twitter. I began cursing the world (not to mention Bell) to hell for my home being in a zone that has difficulty with internet access. I finally tuned into what I was saying, and how ridiculous it truly was. For someone who was completely against Twitter the minute she heard of it to become in need of it is just plain silly.

I have started to use Twitter more than I was using Facebook, I love how direct Twitter is. I tweeted that I needed to start listening to new music again, instead of just sticking in my comfortable niche of classic rock and I received a ton of suggestions! I couldn’t have been happier! I figured I’d maybe get a couple of new artists trying to get followers (which I did) but I also got quite a few legitimate responses. Even more surprising for me, I loved all the suggestions. It’s like these people completely understand my music taste, amazing.

Twitter has even helped me with this blog, I definitely credit the majority of my views to being able to update people instantly on the status of it. I was recently informed of this really cool concept called a 365-day blog, where you document one new thing each and every day. An example of this a dude who goes by Tilley showed me (through Twitter) is the “Make Something Every Day” blog by Mark Weaver. I found it to be brilliant. Check it out. The link should be in the sidebar. I’m certain you’ll enjoy it. Maybe after I establish this blog more, and organize it to exactly the way I want it to be, I will try out the 365-day blog.

Today I came to the realization that I am perfectly all right with being well on my way to becoming a “tweethead”.
