I always like New Year’s resolutions. It’s easy to be cynical about them, but there’s something really nice about everyone trying to improve their lives all together. Trying to get healthy, eat better, read more, or watch less TV, it doesn’t matter, as long as you have something to work on.
I feel pretty healthy. I eat fairly well. I read a lot (although, I suppose I could always read more). And there’s no way I’m watching less TV (as I said the other day, I just started another watch-through of the X Files. So that ain’t happening.)
But one thing I’ve been meaning to do for the blog is increase my “social media presence.” Which is a phrase that makes me kind of want to gag. As a big introvert, being constantly in contact with other people makes me a little nervous. And, frankly, I can’t imagine who would want to hear me mumble about the knots in my yarn and complain when I accidentally spill my tea over the shawl I’m working on.
So, follow me on Twitter @on_the_needles. And I’ll try to be funny? Or something. It’s all very mysterious, how the whole thing works. (And can someone explain how hashtags and stuff work? I’m basically an 80-year-old woman when it comes to technology… so bear with me.)
I’ll give it the old college try for a couple months, and we’ll see how it goes. Do you guys use Twitter? If so, what do you use it for? I’m still not clear on how it works (again, because I’m 80).
Do you have any other interesting (or non-interesting) resolutions this year? I’d love to hear about them!
