I had no idea what I was doing………

This is a promise to myself and no one else: I’M GOING TO LEARN HOW TO TWITTER! I ask myself, how hard can it be. As many know, at least in my personal life, I am not too savvy with the Internet in general. Of course I know how to follow a Writing Format. Some of the Bookmarks as easy to learn to mingle and share with. But Twitter? I have sat there like a vegetable for two years now, avoiding it because I won’t take the time to really learn it. As a result, my idiocy made a glorious difference.
I have a friend whose work I love. She offers jewelry and other small designs for clothes, even the kitchen and offers Tutorials with them. I love her work and back in the Ehow days, we shared some things. I let my friends that are essentially in my age bracket know that we can always find each other and we do. I get her emails for her designs and I’m always impressed. She had a little necklace made from a simple 15 cent washer. Just paint it, chain it and go. Beautiful.
So I decided when I got the last email to Tweet it. I Tweeted before but didn’t know what I was doing and I still didn’t you could say. You see, I tweeted about a bazillian things for her. Hey, I didn’t have anything else to do so I just started tweeting her. She sent me an Email on Monday saying “Jswana, you went absolutely Postal with your Tweets, you did me a lot of good” and then she wrote back “Tell me what I can do to repay” and I’m sitting scratching my head and then something I usually do – got up for a glass of cold water. I’m a little confused. Of course I told her that I didn’t do it for pay back but she said “Well, let me know when you want something tweeted. You really did good for me.” All I can say that it truly is better to give than receive. It made me feel really nice to hear someone express happiness for something I have done, albeit a happenstance! Sure, I’m doing something by Writing but this lady has had this Website for some time and I hope that she is making something of it and if she’s not, it’s not because it isn’t a good one. But I thought I was supposed to tweet like that. And by the way, I thought I was doing the right thing when I posted my little articles to Twitter. I thought that was all I had to do and that people would just find it. You see? I have to learn Twitter! Peace.
