I am not fond of twitter. I don’t get it. I have had my twitter since 2008 and as of this writing I only have 1,784 followers, 1,902 tweets, and 1,895 people that I am following. Now compare that to my 5000 Facebook friends and my 7,936 fans on the NACWE Fanpage www.facebook.com/NACWE. Along with my 15,173 video views on my YouTube page www.inspiredwomentv.com. You can do the math. I am a twitter slacker.
So in order to get my ducks in a row tweeting, I know, horrible but funny, I am taking my challenge public. Basically this is how I force myself to get anything done. I post it on facebook and that makes it real. And to add to the double whammy, I am in a blog challenge from one of my coaches this month so I am committed to blogging 3 times a week in June. What better way to cover both than to tweet and blog about my tweeting. Anybody confused yet? J
I have plenty to tweet. I have my book launch this month. Our live NACWE conference is coming in September and tickets go on sale this month. I am never at a loss for words. Believe me. I can talk. Maybe it is just that I feel like I talk too much to fit it into 140 characters. Or maybe I am resisting the number part of counting my characters. I have a resistance to numbers too, but that will need to be another month.
Maybe it is that I don’t feel like I know the language and I can’t hear. I feel like I am watching from the side of the room and need hearing aids. Or like I am sitting on the bench at the junior high dance. We all know that feeling. Heck, I know that feeling now as a 40 year-old single Christian woman trying to figure out the dating world. That might be even more complicated than twitter.
I want to invite you to come on my Twitter Resitance Journey with me during June of 2013. I am good at spilling my guts, or “blurting” as my friends lovingly call it. So why not blurt in a tweet?
Here we go. And remind me again, what is a hashtag? J
