It takes people to make a party! I’m new to Twitter, but that much I know.
Twitter is a good place for sharing. You’ve got to be pithy, which is a parameter that may even encourage your creativity. It does mine. I must admit though, I’m still learning how to write a good tweet.
Better to share a conversation than a monologue
Sometimes I share, then… quiet. But sometimes I share, then… connect. I’ve been surprised and delighted to enjoy twitter conversations with people I’d never otherwise have access to. For example, I was excited chat with Jen Kirkman about her experience being on the road for her book, I Can Barely Take Care of Myself. We got to talking (okay, tweeting) after I wrote, I can totally take care of myself: On (not) having kids, which was a reflection on her book.
I share this story to say that Twitter can be fun! I’m working to figure it all out still, but hope to make it a place to continue conversations, share related links and continue to build community.
Let’s share and connect on Twitter together! I’m @namedlauren.
