That, plus that fact that I'm naturally cynical and somewhat distrustful of new things, has not contributed to the speed with which I've caught on to various aspects of the Internet!
Case in point: TWITTER!
I suppose I've seen the word "TWITTER" mentioned many a time among Etsy Forum threads, but I never did quite know what it was . . . .nor was I quite curious enough to investigate it.
It was only last week, while I was perusing the Etsy Greetings Blog, that I happened upon a recent article entitled, "An Introduction to Twitter".
And having a few minutes on my hands, I actually took the time to read the article. . . . lucky I did, I guess, because the article piqued my interest about TWITTER enough that I FINALLY checked it out.
So, here I am, a week or so later, having joined the TWITTER community, and finding that I'm quite enjoying myself!
I suspect that I've only scratched the surface so far, regarding what TWITTER can offer . . not only in terms of meeting new people with similar interests, but also in terms of learning new skills, social networking, and discovering new resources and marketing possibilities related to my craft.
But I'm working on learning all about it! For the past few mornings, the first thing I do after I turn on my computer, is log into TWITTER to see what's new. And I'm constantly on the lookout for old and new friends to "follow" on TWITTER, so if you're there, please let me know!
If you scroll down on the right side of my Blog, you'll see that I have a new little Twitter Button listed there entitled "Follow Me on Twitter". . . . .feel free to click and take a look.
So I guess I've finally joined the group of minions out there in Cyberspace who are All a TWITTER!
Are YOU part of the TWITTER "family"?
