On a slight detour from my normal food content, I've decided to embark (albeit a bit late!) on a challenge posted by a Gwen at Gwenbell, called The Best of 2009 Blog Challenge. Unlike my Lebanese Wontons, I'm not entering this challenge to win anything, but instead to challenge myself with thinking about interesting questions and my experiences throughout this year. Please feel free to join in by either participating through her website or by commenting below.
December 27 Social web moment. Did you meet someone you used to only know from her blog? Did you discover Twitter?
Yes, I did discover Twitter. But it pretty much ended there. I tried; in fact I posted 1 tweet. I guess I have a hard time understanding why people need to (or want to!) know what other folks are doing every minute of the day. I'm sure there are Twitter fans out there that will let me know I don't understand the concept, and I will fully admit that I don't, but I'm just not sure I'm ready to commit to it just yet. I post entries on my blog which people can follow via email or RSS feed, I post updates on Facebook, so do I need to tweet about it too? Or should I tweet when I take a shower? Which could be somewhat interesting since with a work-at-home job, my showers are embarrassingly late in the day. As for following tweets, I choose not to. I love my RSS feeds from my favorite blogs, but that's about where it ends. So, do you tweet?
