Day 585

Now before I get into today's festivities, and talk some more about yesterday's chick trip adventures, I've got to tell you all that I am a complete Twitter Twit.


I have no idea how to use Twitter.  I Tweet stuff everyday, but I use it more like a “this is what I’m doing today” tool in case people are looking for me (like my Mum or my bestie over in PA).  Kind of like the blackboard or sheet of paper you used to leave on your ressies door at Uni. 

I have no idea how to use hash tags, join tweetversations or retweet.  I don’t even know what those terms mean. And yesterday as I fluffed around with Twitter trying to work it all out I discovered this whole tab which is called @mentions which I never knew existed and I found out all these little messages to me from fellow bloggers and friends and OMG now I’m so RUDE because I didn’t reply to any of them or acknowledge them or even know they existed.  Shit.  Help me someone … can someone please teach this techno-peasant how to Tweet! There is some hash tag thing going on with the whole Top 50 Bloggers thing and I don't know what it is or how to use it ...

Today is my Grandmother's 90th birthday and yes, there will be a party.  I wrote a big post about her all the way back at Day 10.  I'll probably write more about her tomorrow. So all this means that there is more driving.  After having just returned from my Thelma and Louise-esque road trip in ballet flats it's time to head off over those there hills again for the festivities.  It's been a bloody busy few days!!! And with Blogger crashing and all that you've no doubt got some reading to catch up on.  So I'll let you go.

But before you do ... be sure to read yesterday's post about my driving adventure ....

And then please, please, please tell me how to use Twitter!   Pulleeeease ......

  1. I cant tell you how to use twitter properly as I am still getting the hang of it myself :) . I do know that sometimes people dont respond at all to my tweets and I feel like a tool. I can also tell you that some dont respond to my direct tweets to them and it makes me feel like ive been snubbed..but I acan also tell you that some do respond and they make my day and also give me conversation when I am sitting all alone :) . Twitter is also the best source I have found to gtet info (albeit sometimes dodgy) when major events happen, like floods and earthquakes.

  2. Nobody ever responds to my tweets and I didn't even know they were supposed to! LOL. Now I'm the tool. You are five steps ahead of me Jen. Have I snubbed you? I think I may have snubbed loads of people. I don't know how to have an actual conversation on Twitter. I really don't! Email me Jen ... we need to talk ... I'll pay you to be my Twitter coach ...
