Thoughts of a random Tuesday night...

So I'm a little disappointed in the turnout of Mom Friendly Meals Monday, but the fact of the matter is it's really my own fault. Getting comments and exposure to your blog takes time and effort, and I don't have much of either this week-at least for blogging.
Monday, I worked an absurdly slow shift at work. The kinda of shift where, even though I hardly exerted myself AT ALL, I was still somehow dragging at the end of the day. Then I came home to watch an epic Monday Night Football game (Go Bears!) which, I fell asleep 10 minutes before the game ended. And then today after working a long day shift, I came home to enjoy my time with Jack before he went to bed and then the Hubs and I caught up on some more DVR'd shows.  But now I find myself unable to fall asleep, and since Working Mom Wednesday prompts aren't up yet, you get this. The randomness that fills my head before I lay it down on the pillow for the night.
Here's what I'm thinking about...
*We really need to go shopping for a new dishwasher tomorrow. Our's is pretty much crapped out and I am not keen on the idea of hand washing the dishes.
*I need to start working on the invitations for Jack's 1st birthday party. I am attempting to make them myself. I'll let you all know how that all works out....
*I really want to watch my DVR'd episode of Glee after I finish this post but I don't think I can stay awake that much longer.
*I need to learn more about how to use Twitter and social media to promote this blog but I have no idea where to find this info, simply stated. I know Julia over at Work, Wife, Mom, Life posted a great article on this that linked up to some good places, but I feel like I am in need of a Twitter for Dummies book or something...
*I am really excited for an upcoming giveaway I have.

Random I know, but at least I warned you in the title. Nighty Night!!

Don't let twitter scare you. I knew nothing about it, signed up, and started playing around with it. Now I love it!

I agree with Erin. It can be intimidating at first. But you just have to jump right in and start talking with people. It doesn't need to be blog talk right away. I've found often that if I have something in common with someone, I'm more likely to check out their blog and follow at that point. Seriously, just google Twitter for beginners - there's a lot out there to help you understand the lingo and how it works.

Good luck and let us know your Twitter user name so we can follow you!

Even though I haven't posted on your Meal-Friendly Monday, I've definitely read it. Don't give up on it. :)
