Do you ever wake up on the morning spinning...You know, where your mind is going in a thousand directions at once? Some of those directions are anxious. Some of them are exciting. Often it's a little of both. That's kind of where I am right now. I am thinking through some things that have to happen at church this week (and there are many though the office is closed). I'm pondering the popularity of Twitter and the steady demise of the practice of the art of the essay. I am wishing I were a better writer. And, finally, I am thinking about sorting the recycling. This is not an all encompassing list of what is rattling around in my head, but it will suffice.
So, I am on Twitter. I don't know why, really. I don't use it well. Some people see it as a good way to network. Perhaps it helps if you own a Blackberry, but I'm simply not there yet. I'm still on a laptop as my principal networking tool. Learning to post news, information in the third person, and general entertaining blibs and bloops about oneself is intriguing. I'll admit that. But I am still unclear how it is a good networking tool.
