Breaking News


I joined Twitter. @PampersandPinot

I finally caved.

I did it. Took the plunge. Went all in. Didn't look back.

It has been interesting. I am still trying to figure things out, and I will surely expose myself as tech dumb eventually by making some mistake that I don't even realize is a mistake.

The best part has been seeing all these mom bloggers out there and recognizing who they are and TALKING to them! They really do talk to each other! It is cool.

(If you are on Twitter, but I have not found you yet, let me know in the comments here with your username.)

I had people giving me shout-outs like, "Yay! You're finally on Twitter!" and, "Hey everybody, there's an excellent blogger here who has been blogging for awhile, but she's new to Twitter!"

Thank yous go to the following for Twitter love!

Also, Kelly from Naked Girl in a Dress chose my post on Friday, "Everyone Needs a Whack-a-Mole," as a feature for the week at her site! Thank you, Kelly!

Coincidentally, I am a little behind on returning comment love at blogs. But, I will keep doing my best! More excuses on my tardiness include: the husband is out of town, the maniac has not been at daycare, the maniac is (as I type) skipping his nap for the day, there is a wooden Thomas the Train track to put together (cuz I'm a sucker), and I have felt compelled to do really important things like clean up my tag cloud.

Sigh.

Cheers to social media!
