Pathway to heaven...

Ah well, perhaps that's a bit over the top, but I am enjoying cementing the old slabs back in place. Five hours work so far; another five tomorrow and cracked it - well hopefully not cracked too much, if at all!

I have been on Twitter since just before Christmas and have been sharing this blog on there and on Facebook ever since. I now have over a hundred followers on Twitter, but don't get it still. How does it work? Is it actually useful or is it just another exercise in ego? Am I shooting myself in the foot here by voicing my misgivings? Whatever, I would love someone to explain the reasons for being on Twitter. I just cancelled my Linked-in Account, basically because there are too many peopl from my former corporate life on there (shiver) and am on Facebook only because I have several friends in quite a few different countries around the world - it's lovely to keep in touch and have a luagh with them (very occasionally some of us even meet in real life, blow me down!!!!)

Is this virtual world we frequent just a big ego boost?

Happy cementing!


  1. Can't work up any interest in Facebook. Find it too clumsy. (Though I may be missing something and change my mind.) Have no experience of using Linked-in. But, when Lucy Corrander puts a notice on Twitter for me that I've written a new post, quite a few people follow the link to read it. (Google Stats). However, I think one of the great uses of Twitter may well be to follow news feeds etc.


  2. Yeah, you're probably right, I think I'm being a bit thick with Twitter - not got used to it yet . Of all this virtual stuff I reckon Twitter must be the most useful. Like I say, I'm still a novice and perhaps it will happen for me on the road to Damascus...

  3. I think Twitte is for twats....or perhaps, twatters.

  4. Twitter. I meant, Twitter....doh.

  5. Yeah, you're probably right too, but it kinda helps with the business thing - I think...
