Somebody Explain this To Me; A Continuing Series on Aging

Page 5 To Tweet or not to Tweet; that is the Question

I’m going to file this post under aging because I think it really shows my age. That used to bother me but it doesn’t any more, something else that I fear probably shows my age. I have a small business called Lingering Visions. I don’t make any money at it by far it’s just an expensive hobby and I use the business to hopefully recoup some of my overhead from time to time. It’s like trying to make a living from gambling. I’m never going to get ahead.

But that’s beside the point; the point is I recently signed up for Twitter because I felt the business and my blog were not complete without it. I mean everybody’s doing it, right?

But why? Maybe I will get it if I use it for a while, but right now, I just don’t. I love facebook, social media is my addiction. I posted on political and dating forums before there was facebook or wordpress and yes wordpress is social media too.

But I rarely post a status update and after all isn’t that what Twitter is? 140 characters; that’s either a status update or a very long text message, either way I just don’t get it. But I am new; I may learn to love it. Right now it’s just something else to learn and it takes me away from my writing and photography and I don’t love that!

Oh so, I almost forgot if any of y’all wanna tweet with me (is that the correct term?) probably not 😦 you can find me at https://twitter.com/LingeringVision
They wouldn’t accept the s on the end of Visions; sigh….

And because this is a photoblog I can’t very well post without a photo. I looked to see if I had any pictures of robins…you know Tweet, tweedle-lee-dee, Tweet, tweedle-lee-dee, Tweet, tweedle-lee-dee.
But no, mostly ducks and one not so great picture of a Red Winged Blackbird.

Tweet.

  1. It is a brave new world out there with social media-I remember how I had to be pushed into using Facebook-it helped me take the first step to posting a photo a day-Wordpress I feel more comfortable with, but I still struggle-I know artists and photographers who are reluctantly embracing more of the social media-and at the same time setting strict limits on how much time to devote to it, w/o it taking away from studio time-
    Good post-

  2. Love ‘tweetybird’. Love your photos. Love your blog. DON’T love twitter, Facebook or Pinterest. I have accounts on them but they are just not fun for me. I don’t want to know when my “friends” will be going to the local watering hole, and they’re not really my “friends” anyway. Least not all of them. I feel if they were they would at least check out my blog when I post it on Facebook. Twitter? Who care what Aston Kutcher is doing and when and with whom! And Pinterest? The POINT?????
    Been there. Done that. Done WITH that. Just sayin’… 😉

    • I am on Pinterest too, although not very active. I did a local calendar this year and pinned that. I’m not gonna lie; I love facebook but I mainly post photos, place WWF, and keep up with family, co-workers, and close friends. I honestly think Twitter is for celebrities (who i absolutely do not care about) and teenage girls (who I only care about if they are my nieces or cousins).

  3. Excellent bird shot! Aren’t they hard to catch in picture. I do not have twitter. Too much networking portals for me. I used to be very active on a billboard forums as well, but wordpress overthrown it. 😀
