I have to ask.
Are you a twitter-er?
I've been considering it for awhile now.
Here's my problem. I know I'll love it. I already have so many things that I love that consume my time. So is it worth it?
I dragged my feet to start a blog because I knew I'd love it. Four blogs later and, well, you see how that turned out. Not only do I keep up the four blogs, but I stop by all my family, friends and bloggy buddies' blogs as often as possible. I don't think an hour goes by most days that I don't think, "Oh, I should blog about this!" It is a huge part of my life.
I hesitated signing up for facebook. I now update my status every day and couldn't possibly miss out on any of my friend's status updates or new photos or anything at all! I've either got to let them know that I like their status, love their photo, or leave a comment of some sort. It's addicting.
And don't even get me started on digital scrap booking. There's not enough time in the day to go into that.
Now I've really got going on the playground planning and fund-raising. (I can't believe how supportive people are. It is heart-warming and exciting!)
I'm also thinking 24/7 about my weight loss (20 lbs down, yet still a long way to go). I track everything I take in and every second I exercise (or don't). I've got charts, graphs, books on my laptop and in my purse and on my nightstand.... talk about consuming!
And then there are the usual things that consume my day: cleaning, parenting, husband-bonding, etc.
(p.s. I'm not trying to insinuate that I'm any busier than anyone else. I still have time for long baths, reading good books, seeking out new music, playing Hangman and Scrabble on my phone, and quite a few TV shows, so I know that I'm doing just fine with my allotted 24-hours per day.)
But here's my question. Is there room for twitter? If I make room for it, will it be worth it? It's gotta be worth it because I know myself. If I do sign up for twitter, I will become a tweet queen. It's just in my nature and there's no way around it. And that might get me in trouble!....
It's not because I'm searching out another hobby. I just think it might enable me to meet more people that can help teach me wonderful things to put on the kidz blog. I also think it might be a great way to help get the word out about the playground and its fund-raising events.
I dunno. What do you think? Those who tweet, please, speak now or forever hold your peace!!! Because even though I kind of understand what it is, I don't really know how it works or if it will work for my purposes. So share your thoughts!
