You're Invited

It pays to be attractive. I have been twittering on twitter. It has an analytics page. I love numbers.

Meanwhile, I discovered my attitude about not tweeting unless I have something to say can be misconstrued as creepy on twitter. I have a fuzzy profile picture that I use.

I waste some time everyday checking out my new followers. When I see a gal with big boobs or buttocks, porn is somewhere. There are also some profiles with predictable comments. Apparently the world needs to be told the birds and the bees. Not that I click these folks. I report them as spam whether they tweet or not. I assume "come to my snapchat profile" is spam.

Every once in awhile, a woman has a glamour shot but is that is just her profile picture, no porn. I'm always fascinated when someone with a foreign language in a script unlike the English language follows me. I don't follow them back. They may understand English. I don't understand them. We English speakers are certainly lucky that our language is so widespread.

Am I going to get anywhere with this. I so hope so.

Anyhow, I started posting pictures. I did not have anything relevant to say. I think all the encouragers in the world are available on twitter. To think I bought a book of Bartlett's quotations. One day I snapped a picture of Duke and Louise smiling in the car. Louise was a little uncomfortable and only posed well with her face beside mine. Otherwise it was cut that out and drive.

Anyway, here are their pictures. Everyone is clicking for little BoDuke. No one is clicking for Louise. She really is much prettier than that toothsome picture.

Duke









My mom wanted to go back to the driver's license office and get her picture retaken. It was really bad. I told her I think that is how they train them to take pictures. Fortunately Louise could care less about her twitter picture. She just wants to get in the car.

Meanwhile, I have volunteered for a job I am immensely unqualified for. I am coordinating the newsletter for a writer's group. Yes, you have guessed correctly, no one wanted to do it and I said I could help out. So I am opining, "how to be a good writer" and I am far from arrival myself.

To get people to open the mail chimp newsletter, I used a jazzy title and it worked. The title was You're Invited to a Party, a Twitter Party that is. I may have used the word your instead of you're. I deleted my copy. 

So Thursday night between 7 and 9 PM, September 22nd, the Southeastern Writer's Group will have a twitter party. The questions are what are the best and/or worst vacation, meal and/or place you've lived. Use the hashtag #SWA.

I borrowed the idea of the question from Betty at Benches with a View. Thanks Betty, it is nice to know a trendsetter.

I'm inviting everyone to come. It may just be me. I've deleted Candy Crush so unless there is a good television show on, it could be a long two hours. I guess I could write my next blog post. I threw a twitter party and no one came. I ate all the party treats anyway.

  1. Good luck with the newsletter! I'm glad we had someone else at the IWSG more qualified than me to run ours.
    I get a lot of porn people following me. Fortunately all women. I block them.

    1. You do see the nature of the internet with so many fake sites. Thanks for the luck. I'm a bit out of my league. But I'll do my best to find interesting and useful information.

  2. I think both pups are adorable.

    I used to work in a photo lab and we often took passport photos. Those often trumped the worst driver's license photo.

    1. For my mom, her license was renewed until she was 92. I think she knows it is her last one. I plan to take her when she is 92. This license is really only for emergencies and her desire to have a license. She doesn't drive. However, last time she drove, she did a good job.

  3. Hopefully the newsletter goes smoothly. I get a ton of crap following me on Twitter. A lot of it is fake accounts though as those "buy 5000 twitter account" guys make up a ton of fake accounts a day and follow random people to make them look real.

    1. Buy 5000 fake followers and tuck in your own spam. Gee whiz, I can understand the promotion appeal of these followers. But I think most people don't expect anyone to start out with so many.

  4. Thanks for the shout out :) I hope your Twitter party goes well. Honestly, I have an account there but just don't have the time to spend there as I would like. I would imagine one of the big things tweeted today is the breakup of the Pitts (not that I care but its all over Facebook). Cute pups! I think those taking photos for driver's licenses take a class on how to take the worst picture. Does anyone like their driver's license picture? I know I don't.

    1. The young lady was just inpatient. Mom had trouble keeping her eyes open and was opening her eyes wide but was not ready. The girl took the bug eyed look. My mother was disappointed and wanted to go back in and do it again. I told her the truth that she would take an equally bad picture. We have raised a generation that is in such a hurry, they hurry whether they save time or not. I remember mom saying it took as much time to do wrong as right.

    1. Well, I have stalked you on both sites. It is good to meet you. I've been by your blog quite a few times.

  6. Good for you for branching out as you do! I'm impressed, because I sure wouldn't do it. I think you're certainly qualified for the newsletter - you do a great job blogging ;-) Not necessarily the best, but a terrific vacation was when the cruise line went bankrupt after our Hawaiian island cruise and we never got a bill!

    1. I appreciate the vote of confidence.

      That was cool to not get a bill. How often does that ever happen? I love going to Hawaii. I hope to go again one day.

  7. That's wonderful Ann, taking on an added responsibility. You're very qualified Ma'am, your writing tells on you. I'm sure you'll find it fun! I've a twitter a/c too but horribly inactive. Your pics of L and D are great! You may wish to see Yusuf Hashim's pics on his recent PhotoSafari trip to the Arctic Circle!

  8. I never know what to bring to a Twitter party. Or what to wear.

  9. Cute puppies. I link my blog and Instagram to my twitter account. Right now, that''s about all I tweet. I hate my driver's license picture. Well, all of my pictures, really.
