In which i give unasked for advice


I should be working out but I’m not.  I mean I’ve gained a ton of weight but I’m kind of thinking “what’s a few pounds more, right?” so I’ve decided to write a post instead.  After all, I’m a terrific typist and can type over 100 wpm so I’m burning some calories that way, right?


So I was talking to some people on Twitter today if having a conversation on Twitter could be actually considered talking and I’m going to comment on some of those convos.


First, I think I should possibly keep my mouth shut; probably in general but specifically regarding Twitter.  I saw a tweet this morning from Darren Rowse (@ProBlogger) about having a bunch of spammers and of course, me being me, I had to send him some advice.  Here’s his tweet:

And here’s mine:

 He replied:

He referred to Chris Brogan (@ChrisBrogan) who also responded.  I didn’t know who he was either.  I realized after giving them advice that these guys had 87,000 and 191,191 followers respectively and who the hell was I to be giving them advice?  Then I realized that it was typical that I would a) put my foot in my mouth and b) ignore common sense anyways.

True, True Chris! At any rate, I suppose one of the things I like about Twitter is that it’s a great equalizer.  If people want to talk to you they’re just people. I like to Tweet anyone I feel like it.  Now normally, the big “Tweeters” don’t respond but occasionally they do but I suppose that I’m sort of a stalker in that I just Tweet who I want.

I, of course, knew who ProBlogger was (having once googled him) but had no idea who Chris Brogan is.  I do now because I checked him out and feel that he’s extremely lucky to have had an interaction with me.  Also, I’m pleased that I screwed up his numbers because he had 191,191 following him and I made it 191,192 which isn’t quite as awesome.  However,  thought I should acknowledge that he had a few more followers than I did so I sent this to him:

and he replied with:

and I realized that:

I fucking love Twitter!


On another note, can I tell y’all something?  Speaking of y’all (and this isn’t the something I wanted to tell you), Tricia Helfer (of Battlestar Galactica) is now ALWAYS spelling y’all properly.  I corrected her on THIS POST but see below.  Man I’m good.


At any rate, here’s what I wanted to tell you.  I spend most of my time on my iPad.  I mean, I have a computer where I write up posts and type and shit and play games but mostly I’m on my iPad and you know what I hate?  I FUCKING HATE those stupid formats that are “just for iPad!”


You know, the ones where you SWIPE it to get where you’re going?  I hate them. Stop using them.  They’re fucking annoying.  That’s my opinion and very frankly on this blog, it’s the only one you’re going to get.  I know there’s an option on WordPress that asks if you want to have a special format for iPad so for future reference, please say NO!  I did.


If you like it then keep it but I hate those sites and rarely go there as a result.  Its’ possible others don’t feel this way.  I don’t know them and I don’t care and even if I do know them I don’t care.


Now, where was I?


Oh yeah, I was nowhere.  I certainly have more than my fair share of rambling posts.  Well, in summation.  Talk to whom you want.  Say what you want.  Do what you want. And … and… don’t use those swipe thingies.


I’m just saying …

    I totally agree about the iPad formats. They suck. I got so fed up with NOT being able to type on the iPad, that I gave it to my husband (thus encouraging his RISK habit) and bought a MacBook Air instead. Call me old fashioned, I still love a keyboard.

    I love how they responded to you – and your witty responses back to them. I keep tweeting my favorite rocker from Our Lady Peace, Raine Maida when I see a tweet of his coming through. He hasn’t responded yet. Someday . . .

      I keep tweeting Katee Sackhoff and she never responds to me. Depends on whom the person is,
