Morning…. er, Afternoon Meanderings….

I had good intentions of putting up a post this morning but that didn’t happen.  I went to the 8:15 am service, came home and our oldest son was here so he and I put away the lawn furniture… yes, that same furniture I took a picture of and posted about two weeks ago that I needed to get that done before the snow came.  Well… it is done now and so far, we are snow free.  (Tiny “woo hoo” to that one!)

So now – the house is quiet.  Brad has gone home, Al is taking a nap… and I am in my favorite chair in the reading room, curled up with Laptop, Coffee Cup, and the next book I am planning to sink into, Children of Dust by Ali Eteraz.

Last night, I was on Twitter.  Honestly… I dont know a lot about Twitter.  I only use for my book communications and I enjoy connecting with fellow bloggers, authors, and publsihers through Twitter.  But I dont really get it beyond the basic updates and chatting.  For instance, I want to do #FF (Follow Friday) but I dont understand how.  I have a hard time sending a message to someone if they have not sent one on Twitter first.  Yeah… I am really bad.  I just dont follow how it all works.

So last night people are tweeting from the tweet deck (which sounds really cool like a big old deck of people chatting and eating appetizers) or from something about a wave (I really have no idea about that)… twitterfeed, twittergadget…. uh yeah, I got nothing…. BUT then I seen a tweet cloud and I had to try it and seriously… it was easy to do and basically it takes whatever words you use frequesntly in your tweets and puts them in this cute little cloud:

I mean come on…. is that cute or what?

So do you twitter?  I mean tweet?  If you do, do you use any of the different options to tweet?  Are there ways that work better than others?

  1. I use Twitter, but mostly I read and watch what people twitter. Occasionally I’ll tweet but I can barely retweet and I have to use my phone to do that. I haven’t figured out how to do that on the twitter site.

  2. I would Twitter so that I could have a cute cloud like that!! LOL!! I don’t know how to do it and I have a hard enough time keeping up-to-date with my blogging and stuff without adding Twitter to it!! :)

  3. I’m on Twitter all the time but I’m still not fluent on all the extra stuff.
