I decided this morning to sign up for a Twitter account.
I have a facebook account and a blog but I've held out on signing up for Twitter. Why?
I think of blogs, facebook, twitter accounts as being like pets. They require attention. Unlike pets who need food, exercise, and grooming these internet places need posts, updates, tweets, comments. Up until now I just haven't been ready for another internet site to visit but it seems like another good way to connect with and support other writers.
Maybe signing up for a Twitter account isn't quite as big a decision as getting a puppy but think of all the people who create orphan blogs, twitter accounts, facebook pages just because they think they should and then never go back to visit them.
Hopefully I will be able to maintain balance of working on my WIP while connecting on Twitter.
I think if I think of my WIP as the big cat in this picture and all other things as kitten invaders I'll be able to find balance.
Are you on Twitter? How do you maintain balance while still connecting with others on blogs, twitter, facebook?
