Will Tweet For Money or Any Reason At All

After being out of the blogging habit for over a year, I am finding it difficult to know what to write about. When I was writing all the time, I had no shortage of topics to choose from. Inspiration was all around me. I wrote posts based off a commercial I saw or off the tail end of a news story on the radio.

I kept a notebook in my back pocket to write down ideas as I had them. And I always had them. It's amazing what building a habit can do for you. All week long, I knew I had to write a post this weekend and a topic never came to me. So, now it's time to write and I've got nothing.

While it has been painfully obvious by the gaping void in my blog that I haven't paid much attention to it in the last year, it doesn't mean I haven't been writing at all. I have have been, but it has just been in much shorter bursts. 140 character bursts to be exact.

I spend a lot of time on Twitter. I love Twitter. I get excited when I get new followers. I love it when one of my favorite accounts retweets me or follows me back. Or when a known celebrity (not an internet celebrity) comments on something I said. It gives me a high that lasts for days.

I understand that it's shallow and doesn't really have any meaning in everyday life, but I'm addicted. I can't wait to grab my phone each morning before heading to the bathroom to get caught up on the last Twitter trends while I evacuate my bowels.

During my lunch breaks at work, I head to my car to get back on Twitter.

As soon as I get off work, I'm back on Twitter.

If you can't already tell, I am a little obsessed and I enjoy this obsession. I may be back in the blogging world now, but I have no intention of giving up Twitter. I'm getting to the point that I have an impressive number of followers and several of my tweets have gotten the attention of other websites. As someone who loves attention, I can't help but enjoy this.

I love the hashtag wars. I love participating in new joke formats. I love taking the days headlines and trying to find some humor in it. Plus, with all the negativity out there that is so easy to find, having this release is refreshing.

If you have a Twitter account consider giving me a follow. I can promise you won't learn anything from me, but I'll try to give you a laugh. I also retweet a lot of other funny people on my account.

I love Twitter if you can't tell.


  1. I think you're 60% of the tweets that I see, your equally funny wife is another 30%, and the last 10% are random people who aren't quite as addicted.

    1. Yeah. I tweet a lot when I'm free. I have a problem.

    2. There are few, if any, problems that can't be solved ...or at least managed in 140 characters or less.

    3. Very true. It takes some work to knock a joke down to 140 and still keep it understandable, but it keeps the jokes tight.

  2. You've heard of "football widows" or "WoW widows" (World of Warcraft) ... I'm afraid I'll become the first "Twitter widow."
    But I can't complain. I knew what this was when I met you.

    1. That's true. You knew, but I do tweet about you an awful lot.


Leave a comment. C'MON!!! You're already here. Leave a comment. Don't leave me hanging and wondering if any has ever seen these words. I'll rub your feet.
