Taking the Twitter Plunge… (Archive Article)


Editor’s Note: This is obviously written years ago!


Ok, I admit it. I haven’t tweeted as much as I’d like. Take a couple parts guilt feelings, a part procrastination, a part “where-do-I-start” and a dash of OCD/perfectionism and you get a social media nut who isn’t tweeting. Why? Simply because I love people so much that I want to thank each and every one and realize the more days that pass, the more people there are that I haven’t thanked, and how far back do I go with the thanks and should I thank yesterday’s tweeps first, or a month ago?… Ok, do you get the picture? I told you it was crazy, so consider yourself having been fore-warned! 🙂

And, to top it off. While I sit back, chasing my tail, wondering where to start, my Klout score plummets, and plummets, and plummets… OK, don’t go looking, now. Seriously, I am embarrassed! So, I fell down on the playground and skinned my knee. Not like I can’t stand up, brush myself off, and go on skipping rope in the playground called “Life,” in the sandbox called “Twitter.”

Now, I really appreciate all of you gusto-grabbing people who are able to just pull out the stops and Tweet (or blog, or Facebook status, or whatever the case may be). I applaud you and I send you congratulatory warm virtual hugs. If you know me, you know that I am not patronizing you, I mean it!

For those of you who may have “issues,” whatever they may be (fear of people, momentary lapses of memory, spending too much time with your pets or your cars, etc.). Hey, join the club! I don’t think any of us is perfect. But, you know what, I am going to take the plunge. I am going to send out personal tweets starting today and realize that you can’t change the past. Not only that, but who said you have to be perfect?! Enjoy your humanity and make a few boo boos. We all do! So, what are you waiting for? You ready to take the plunge (or re-plunge) with me? If so, see you on Twitter!

P.S. To all of you who have “Thanks” coming, in appreciation for your mentions and shout outs, to you I send a special, global “Thank you.”
