I Get Twitterpated

I have to admit: Twitter defeated me. This totally messes with my self-image, because I like to think I'm kind of  a with-it techie kind of a gal. Most computery stuff makes total sense to me, and after all I've had an email account since 1986. Yeah, the old kind with a blinking green cursor on a black CRT screen (that's Cathode Ray Tube for those of you born into the LCD era). Yeah, I know that really dates me. Really.

But for some reason, any rationale for tweeting eluded me. I actually did have a Twitter account for the last year, but every time I went there it just seemed like a gigantic cacaphony of people posting senseless things about their laundry or what they ate for lunch. It took a social networking maven to straighten me out and help me to see the light of the Twittery dawn. @juliejulie from the Chubby Mommy Running Club (now coming to a city near you!) is my go-to gal for all things social on the computer. So now I'm a little more dialed in, I get the whole tweeting interaction thing, and if anyone wants to follow me or converse over there in tweety bird land, I'm @Evrymom2Ironmom . Plus there's a new little button on my sidebar. So if you already know the lay of the Twitter land, you can come welcome me, the new kid on the block.

OK, you have a new follower. Now if you can put your learnings into a free eBook giveaway it would be greatly appreciated as I'm still getting used to it myself.
