Questions Questions, I've got Questions

What is REALLY up with Twitter?

and my big question of the day is…. WHY would I want to twitter????

I’m busy enough as it is trying to work and keep house and make stuff and then find interesting things for MY blog… let alone read all my Blog bff’s AND THEN just happen to run into MANY MORE blogs to read and get ideas about…

So please help me understand, WHY anyone would want to twitter

-also don’t get that to enter a ‘blog’ contest I have to “follow” them on twitter. Doesn’t that take time? And energy to read and update and follow on the computer on twitter??????

Who has that kind of time?

As long as we are posing questions (that I don’t have answers to)

Here’s another one.

Now that I’ve found the blogging world…. How do you have time for all the great blogs out there?????

I have sooooooooooo many bookmarked on my Explorer

Then now I’m using Firefox more.. more are bookmarked on THEM

THEN there’s all the blogs I follow... And the blogs I ‘really follow” (meaning my peeps… and you know who you are)

I am afraid of finding MORE great blogs out there but then afraid of what I am missing out on.

Guess it all boils down to
  1. Time maintenance
  2. Priorities.

Sill looking for an answer about that Twitter thing though…

I don't quite "get" the Twitter thing, either. It's a lot like Facebook's status updates, I think, so I see no reason to do both. And I choose FB because I like to follow the teens in our family and see all the fun things they do, etc.

As for blogging, I spend a couple of hours every day doing my post and reading the posts of my blog buddies. I get up early, and I'm retired, so finding the time isn't that difficult. I'm sure that if I'd gotten into blogging when my kids were little, I'd have been staying up half the night doing it all while they were asleep. (That's how I wrote my books...)

I just joined twitter last night, because it seemed like you really needs to if you want more exposure for your blog. However, I don't really get it either. What am I supposed to tweet? "loading the dishwasher, puppy's sitting on my feet" Boring!
I also totally get the blogging black hole...I lose lots of time that way. And yes, I'm often up until 12 or 1 am writing my blog post.
