I love Twitter - but I get all nervous with the whole 140 characters or less thing. When the character count turns red as I'm typing a Tweet I get all Twanicky. And, sometimes, it is hard for me to follow. I'm slow that way.
And communicating via Blog comments just doesn't do it for me. There are so many vibrant, funny, insightful people who comment here - I always have so much I want to say! And, I want to get to know you better. Maybe we can
Maybe I'll get a little controversial over there - you know, really get daring. Talk about really juicy topics I wouldn't talk about here. Just give me a day or two to spice up my life first... I'm SURE I can think of something juicy.
And if the above reasons aren't compelling enough to join, do it 'cause you don't want me to drown my sorrows in triple vente lattes or overdose on Everlasting Gobstoppers. I'll do it, you know.
Does that work? Guilt trips and idle threats?
To join please click on the widget/gadget thingy on the right hand side. Come introduce yourself. Because, seriously? At the moment it says "Zero Friends" and that is more than I can bear.
**UPDATE 9am - Woo Hoo! 9 people! Come join the fun!
**UPDATE 10am (I promise I won't do this all day): we're cooking now! I'm getting to know you better, and I love that. And so far only one latte and four Gobstoppers. Not too shabby.
**FINAL UPDATE (jeez, obsess much, Ellie?) - if you become a fan, your Facbook info is still private to others on the page, unless you directly Friend them. And, of course, they accept. Which is a source of constant hand wringing for me.
