Most of you who are reading this are bloggers but if you are not and find blogging too tedious but would still like to try blogging someday, you could.
Try Twitter. To quote a recent WSJ article, Twitter is One of the hottest technologies in Silicon Valley is also one of the simplest.
Twitter is in a way blogging, micro-blogging, that is. Twitter prompts users to do one thing: answer the question, "What are you doing?" in 140 characters or less. You can keep friends and family in touch quickly wherever you are even as text messages. It is a quick way to get answers to your questions too.
Twitter is really simple. Look who's talking and to think that yours truly took a while contemplating whether or not to get on it.
The truth is, I didn't like the idea of sharing with the world what I do. I am sort of a private person, you understand. Yes, I am. In fact, I was like, why in the world would anyone want the world to know what he or she is doing?! That is so personal. Eww!! How narcissistic can one get! Besides, following another person is like openly stalking that poor soul. Double-Eww!! Anyway, I think differently now as I don't have to talk about myself, ahem.. I just update as and whenever I feel like it... mostly neutral, non-personal stuff. I think.
So, sign up already and let me stalk, I mean, Follow you, and you can follow me, if you like. No, I am not getting paid for this. I just thought it would be nice to have more of my blog-friends get on it.
