Hey I Have Tweeple!

I swore I wasn't going to do it. I don't have the time. I spend too much time in front of my computer as it is.......

But then Chelsea issued this challenge.

And of course, since she was the blogger who originally told me that she would never follow me on Twitter if I ever did it.....

and then she caved under the pressure and is twittering now....

So I have to Twitter.

But then the old fears and concerns and insecurities rear their ugly heads. You know the ones, the ones that a lot more of us have than we think. Those little voices that say, " Why are you doing this? You know that no one is going to follow you. You are insignificant and you will just be hanging there, hoping for tweeple and they won't show up and you will just be left standing along the wall at the virtual internet dance....

Oh My Gosh I am in Junior High again!

Sorry, flashback there. I am OK now. Breathing deeply. Channeling my inner self-confident 49 year old.

But, I am trying to embrace all of life, so I will Twitter. So if you twitter then come and find me over there. I am stopherknitting

And I need tweeple. I have 4....and I want more. I am so shallow.

I don't expect to be Dooce, who has 1.5 MILLION followers on Twitter for the love of Pete. Or Ashton Kutcher, who doesn't seem to actually do any acting anymore, who just does commercials and tweets. That really begs the question as to whether Ashton Kutcher could ever act in the first place but I guess that is fodder for another time.

So come and find me on Twitter.....Please


  1. Ohhh DebbieQ, I love you!

    It was total blog peer pressure. Lauren and Kathleen ganged up on my at the PW signing and made me feel like an idiot. So I caved..

    For Love of the Blog!

  2. I am such a dork because I had absolutely no idea what tweeple was.

    And why is it Ashton Kutcher does nothing these days?

    And how does one have 1.5 million tweeple?

    And how do you set up twitter?

    And should I do this too?

  3. Dandy you have to tweet! If I can figure it out anyone can I assure you. Twitter walks you through it. But I still had to find myself a "twitter tutor".

  4. You are so far ahead of me. I have no idea how to tweet or where to tweet. You go lady!

  5. Sorry, but no tweets from me! lol! Twitter is where I draw the line. at least for now....

  6. I can't believe you did it! But by the sounds of you twitter "conversations," you're fitting right in!

    I have to admit, it's kind of weird knowing more about you than you'll ever know about me (because I don't tweet nor blog). Now I know what you're up to at this very moment (knitting at home w/ HHBL) and not just what you did during the day yesterday. Weird indeed!

  7. Okay, I figured out why it seems so weird: I feel like I'm stalking you (even though you've actually encouraged it.) Weeeeeeird.

  8. If I did tweet ~ I would add ya! But, as of yet, I haven't figured all that out!!
