My Twitter Experience

Posted April 1, 2011 by Kara in Uncategorized / 7 Comments

I’m in the mood to talk and write, and write and talk..let’s see where this goes.

I’ve probably officially been on twitter for about a month. And in that time, I have met so many amazing people all over the world. I’ll talk about them individually in a moment, but I need to let you guys know about me. In real life. Who I am. I’m not an easy person to get along with or like. And I am not saying this to garner sympathy. I’m just telling it how it is. I’m for the most part, extremely antisocial(although this has gotten better) and I’ve been on medication for my anxiety and depression for years. For so long I felt hopeless. It’s difficult in real life for me to make friends, mostly because I refuse to kiss ass. And I hate small talk. The getting to know you crap. It’s just so awkward and annoying. Maybe it’s my own fault, maybe I bring it on myself, but I’m slowly learning to love myself again. I feel happier. And I have my wonderful twitter community to thank.

I get up in the morning and think about you guys immediately. What are you doing, are you okay…etc. I cannot wait to say hello to everyone. When I go out and I can’t access my twitter, I miss you all. I wonder what you are doing. Your updates matter to me. I put myself in several different groups on twitter: the book blogging and writing community, the atheist/agnostic community, and then there are some of you I’ve just met in one way or another and now we are great, great friends.

This is where I talk about you individually. Special shout-outs go to Fred, Megan, Greg, Nick, Jenn, Amy, Lani and Jaime. You guys are the ones I miss the most when I’m not around. I may have forgotten someone and I will be sure to edit this later if that happens.  And even if I don’t talk to you anymore, you will not be forgotten. You know who you are. There are also quite a few of you who I’m still getting to know. You matter too. There’s just so many that I can’t get every name. Just know that all of you are in my heart and thoughts every single day. I look forward to continuing this experience. I realize this blog may seem a little cliche. But it’s the truth. And I mean every word. I love you guys.

  1. Thank you, Kara! I agree wholeheartedly! It’s a rare thing to find genuine people and when we do we should hang on to them. Cheers. 🙂

  2. Aw! Although 500 followers in a month is awesome. Just think how many this blog will get! 🙂 Anyway I was happy to meet you, and so curious about what you’re working on!

  3. I’m not actually writing anything yet. I am enjoying the book blogging currently, and working through some of my own ideas. They will come together eventually. Thanks. I do hope my blog will do really well. And I owe it all to you guys and the help you have been giving me.

  4. Yay, Twitter! Think of you, too, Jessica Rabbit. And someday, when we get to link up in real time, we’ll trade prescriptions, just for the hell of it. Oh, and you can fix my hair, too. Then we’d be like TWINS!
