Twitter Seems to Be Doing It's Job

So, as I said, I signed up for Twitter. I was - and still am, a little bit - hesitant to join the teeming masses, but it seems to be helping the traffic flow to my blog. Of course, my visit stats were dismal to begin with, so adding a dozen or so hits feels huge to me. hah

It's not really about the numbers, though. Well, scratch that. It is about the numbers, but it's nice to know that my words aren't going off into the interweb void, never to be read once they've been posted. The people that are coming onto my site may very well not be reading a lick of it, but... that's just it. I don't know what they're doing. I don't know who you all are or where you're from, and that's ok. I'm grateful for the traffic.

Of course, feel free to leave me comments. I'd love to hear from you all and get to know you! :) It's always exciting when people get involved.

Anyways, that's all for now. I just figured I'd give you an update on the foray into twitter land.


ADDENDUM - I lied. That's not all for now. I said some odd amount of posts ago that I was going to see District 9 as my next movie. Well, as it turns out, my next movie venture will be Hayao Miyazaki's "Ponyo." I've been looking forward to this for a long while mostly because I just love Miyazaki's body of work so much. Howl's Moving Castle, Spirited Away, Kiki's Delivery Service, Princess Mononoke (Yes, I'm an anime dork, but not horribly so.)... They're all wonderful.

Not only that, but the cast is great.

Cate Blanchett
Matt Damon
Liam Neeson
Tina Fey
Cloris Leachman
Betty White

Either way, I'm very much looking forward to it. Miyazaki never fails to entertain, and I'm certain he won't drop the ball with this Little Mermaid adaption.

Come back tomorrow for a review! :)

Your blog is great, I really have to work on mine to get it set up. I am on twitter also promoting traffic to my blog.
twitter is wonderful. It's a fantastic way to meet wonderful people, many of them fellow writers. Do hang out and take part in the #writechat and #litchat sessions - you get to meet and interact with agents, editors, publishers, and all kinds of generally wonderful people.

Thanks to both Steffani and Agnieszkas for those comments. They're always appreciated. :)

And thank you for being so welcoming to Twitter! It's always nice to go somewhere new and meet people who are genuinely kind. I will definitely be taking part in the #write/litchat sessions whenever I can.

I realize that, when I mentioned you in my blog, I didn't put a link to YOUR blog!! For SHAME on me! hah

Will correct that immediately. :)

"Purple Things"

Exercise #28: "Purple Things" What things are purple? Make a list. Eggplants One-Eyed, One-Horned, Flying, Purple People Eater (see below) Bruises (sometimes) a REALLY beautiful sunset Elizabeth Taylor's eyes (does violet count?) Barney (I love you, you love me...) Grapes Lavendar Orchids Amethyst Cabbage (sometimes) Lots of different birds Plums Violets Onions ROYGBI V That's all I can think of. You know, you don't really notice it, but purple appears quite frequently in nature. When I think nature, my mind immediately imagines greens, browns, and generally all kinds of neutral colors, but purple is everywhere. It's pretty awesome. Without further ado, the One-Eyed, One-Horned, Flying, Purple People Eater by Sheb Wooley: Great, huh? I don't remember when I was first introduced to this all-sorts-of-wonderful song, but I'm pretty sure it was care of my Mom. She definitely has provided quite a bit of the humor in my life, an
