My next major distraction

Many of you hoped, predicted, expected and wished for this to happen, but as I recently announced my presence on facebook, I suppose my next announcement comes as slightly less of a surprise:

HerBookSelf is now on Twitter!
This doesn't quite mean I have any idea what I'm doing yet, but as I navigate the fast paced world of hash tags (#), retweets (RT), mentions (@), and follows I hope to add a new layer to my blogging experience and connect with some of my favorite bloggers on a more regular basis.  I also want to extend a huge thank you to April over at Good Books and Good Wine.  I've long been a fan of April's blog and her post during BBAW was one of the main persuading factors to me joining Twitter.  The big surprise though came within just an hour or so of me signing up for Twitter and finding some favorite blogs to follow, when this note appeared:
April C
Hey all Lisa is way new to twitter, so why not give her a warm welcome and a high five for joining the land of twitter!!
And then I was inundated with notes of welcome, hellos, and a host of followers!  I replied, in Tweet, that I felt like the new kid at school who got invited to sit at the cool kids' table on the very first day!  And I also want to thank Lesa (from Baja Greenawalt's Cozy Book Nook) who noted that "Twitter looked like Greek at first" and offered to answer any questions I came up with; and another big thanks to Greg (the man of multiple blogs) who made a note on Her Book Self's facebook page regarding surprise that I was not yet on Twitter, which prompted me to check it out and join the fun!  I know I'm still learning the ropes, but I can't say enough how much I appreciate everyone being so friendly and encouraging.  And if any bloggers out there are still hesitant to join the Twitter pool, jump right in, the water's warm... just watch out for the whale!

    Yay, you're a Tweep! I don't know what I'm doing in Twitter either. But I've had fun so far with the few navigation skills I've got.
