Early Morning Run Is on Twitter!!

In case you didn't notice the widget pop up on the right side of my blog, Early Morning Run is now on Twitter!

A lot of bloggers have been expanding their blog to Facebook, but I've decided to go a little bit of a different route & see where it takes me. I've played around with it a little before, but I must admit I'm a bit new to Twitter and still exploring all it has to offer. Am I the only one who thinks that all the different types of social media can get to be a bit exhausting? I mean, we're running around on the streets all the time to stay fit and then running between Facebook, email, twitter, the blog world, iPhone apps (which I don't have) and then still have to find time to actually talk to people and get work done!

Anyway.....I decided to try Twitter so I can update you, and others, on things more frequently. I can post bits and pieces about health and fitness news, facts, retweet cool related posts, and tell you about the awesomely healthy meal I just ate or great run I just finished without having to write a whole post about it. A 140 character limit provides a bit of an odd sort of freedom.

First and most important, I'd like to thank all of my followers & all those who have read this blog even once. It's so amazing to know that people actually care about what I have to say and come back to read more! I appreciate you more than you know & I will never take you, or your time, for granted! Secondly, if you're on twitter, head over and click on the "Follow Me" button with the cute little twitter bird and you'll hear from me more often!

Questions: What do you think of all the sorts of media we consume? Perhaps the fact that kids spend most of their day consuming electronic media is a direct result of all the time we spend with it. Are you on Twitter? What are your raves and rants about it?

By the way, I'm happy to report that the rain has finally stopped and the wind is no longer strong enough to blow over small dogs and children!

I have to say that my computer... mainly blogs, facebook and twitter take up lots of my time. BUT, I also, have a job that has lots of down time and that's what I fill it with. I've noticed lots of blogs have gone the facebook route, but I like twitter more.... I feel like I can converse more on it.... and I don't want another fb page, who's gonna follow that one? The same people I'm already friends with? The people that read my blog can get all the info in the post! I'm now following you on twitter!

The rain took cause my commute to take an extra 30 minutes. Awesome. I will be following you on twitter. A lot of us do tweet run ups, etc. Its a lot of fun :D Hope you enjoy it.
I agree that all the social networking can get exhausting. I have to take breaks once in a while.

Hi Lisa,
Good for you on giving Twitter another try! I will continue to be loyal and read your blog every day:) I do not do the Twitter thing yet but wish you the best!

All I have is a blog. I am not interesting enough to update social sites once a day, much less more often.

I cannot do twitter. There just aren't enough hours in the day for all the media I am already sucked, I mean, accustomed, to. ;)

Sorry to bring back memories of the loss of your friend. I know you fully understand what kind of terrible situation it is to lose a friend. Thanks for the kind words. Back at you.

I'm following you on twitter!

I find it quite confusing - I hope I'll get used to it.

I think all the various social media resources have gotten a little crazy. I personally can't keep up. It can waste so much time - you have to be careful not to get too sucked in or else you'd never step away from the computer.
