Twitter. I vowed to stay away and I did for a VERY long time. I even resisted during Proverbs 31 OBS Twitter parties. And I LOVE my OBS sisters, so the fact that FIve Minute Friday got me there says a LOT! Last weekends writer’s retreat had me more than a little curious about the fellowship and friendships made in 140 characters or less.
So guess where I was tonight? I can’t even believe it. Yes, the dinosaur, the one that didn’t know what a launch was, or Voxxing, or how to use google hangouts (even IF I did have a camera thingy on my computer), actually made it to the #fmfparty tonight.
I didn’t think I could learn how to keep up. And I’m not sure I did. But I was told I was doing fine,
See here’s the proof
Will I do it again? Probably? Will it be a regular thing? Probably not. Don’t get me wrong, it was fun and I enjoyed being there, but my time is getting away from me, and one more thing on my plate on a regular basis? Sometimes ya gotta say no.
I’m certain at some point I’ll to learn how to make one of those cute little “click to tweet” box to use in my blog. But not tonight. Tonight this ole dino is tired; so no late night tonight trying to figure out something else new in the cyberspace world. And I want to go enjoy the stars with my darling!
Tonight this dinosaur will dream of little blue birds and frantic craziness all around me. And I will be thankful for
seeing “old” new friends made by driving down a winding road, past the deer that were playing to a cabin by the lake and for making new friends, including one who lives in my hometown, whose husband went to my high school (West High Rebels) a year ahead of me. How cool is that?
P.S. And NOW I understand…twitter party, Friends made, friends made visit blogs, relationships formed. Not like old school days where you got to know each other in the comments of the blog…the fog is lifting.
I’m linking up with Kate at Five Minute Friday. The rules are simple. 5 minutes of free writes on her one word prompt. No edits (yes I did, because I can’t not. and I was EXTREMELY tired last night,haha) and then visit and comment on the persons blog before you. Yes, it’s that simple. And if you DO edit like me, there is no edit police to wrap your knuckles either. You can find out more here.
And if you get a chance, check out our NEW blog that was birthed from the FMF retreat
