Tweet and Twitter you Twit...

This is one of those therapy sessions for me... I have a problem and so I'm getting it out there.


Guess what... I've found another, itsy bitsy, teeny tiny, obsession.

I blame it on whoever invited me to Twitter. It was a while back... it's been THAT long for me to give it a chance.

At first I just signed up to be nice.

But then I would hit other peoples blogs and read about what they were writing on twitter... and laughing at what goes on in peoples brains these days.

HONESTLY... people are funny.

Take for instance, That Blue Yak, who totally pimps himself out all the time... wrote a post about following him on Twitter... so I did, cause I always follow mindlessly (okay, he's actually pretty funny)... I didn't know someone's brain functioned like that...

or Cameron from Get the Stink Off--very witty that guy, but also... a little crazy in the head, you would know if you follow him on Twitter what I'm talking about... or you can READ HERE about why he is crazy! :)

Sometimes I wonder if those two are the same person.

Mariah and TentCamper got me stuck on some RIDICULOUS spy game... that I still don't know what the HELK I'm doing so I keep trying, and minutes drag into... well you know.

Anyway... these guys are good at twitter.

It's like being a fly on the wall in people's minds... sometimes it's downright scary.

But then you start to realize it's a nice outlet to say what's on your mind and when I say what's on your mind, I mean ANYTHING on your mind... but I'm still just getting my feet wet with it.

I can't stop checking it... I'm a little OVER DEDICATED to it now.

And over dedicated and obsessive people LOVE company. So get TWITTERING right NOW!!!

Would it help if I told you, you could spy on Ashton Kutcher? The Pioneer Woman? Dooce? Jimmy Fallon? Martha Stewart? Ryan Seacrest? Southern Sage? Chelsea Lately? Kim Kardashian?

So... Follow me if you sign up... I'm on there as ShelleBlok. Everybody's doing it! :)

Okay, you GOT ME... I don't WANT help! I just want to spy on you guys. Humor me? (And I need new SPY recruits)

Oh, and go ahead and tell me about any and all teeny tiny obsessions you may have... I'm here for you, since you listened to me, it's the least I can do. (And leave your Twitter name in comments just in case some thinks your worth following! hehehe)

Love,

Shelle

I tried to deny my Twitter obsession...but it's now turned into a weekly post on just the "Twittersphere".

It's a sickness, really.

OOOHHHHH good idea Canadian Bald Guy... k guys, AFTER you follow me, make sure to leave a comment here telling EVERYONE else your twitter name...

That way, people can follow YOU back to your twitter...

NICE!

Kate said...

have you ever seen the cell phone network commercial where it says what everyone is doing right NOW, then says X number of people just twittered, and X% of people watching this commercial still dont know what twitter is?

i am in that X%. I think it may stay that way.

Barefoot Dreamer said...

I can't do it, can't make myself.... I'm already a big enough twit!

Shelle-BlokThoughts said...

Kate and barefoot... Hey if ur not going to jump off the cliff with the rest of us then u r uninvited! Lol I kid... Don't tell the others but u r probably better off! Canadian Bald Guy is right it is like a sickness!

ok, I do have a twitter account, (CaveHairMama)...but I have to admit, that after I rec'd 10-12 updates in a row one Sunday Morning (from a single user who was sying "HI" to everybody she could think of), while I was trying to A: not wake my husband, and B: get ready for church I got pissed and turned off mobile alerts. I love me a random thought, really, I do. But if I don't actually know a person, what the hell do I care that their kid just came in and said whatever their kid just said. I found twitter to be too much information about people I didn't know well enough to appreciate. I may or may not turn it back on if there is hope of ACTUAL random thoughts, I'd like that. I think.

Kristina P. said...

I have an account. That I literally used for 2 hours, 6 months ago. I refuse! I don't need to Facebook, Blog, Tweet, Mormon Mommy Blog Chat, etc. It's too much!!

Annette Lyon said...

I'm new to Twitter and still sort of lost. But I do believe I'm following you!

Marla said...

yep another time suck just like Facebook... at least twitter updates FB at the same time you twit :)

Barbaloot said...

I have not given into Twitter yet. I just can't. There very name of that thing makes me angry---so how could I deal with being a part of it?

Youngblood4ever said...

I have too many obsessions. It could take all day. I haven't done Twitter because I would NEVER be off the computer and I already have to pretend I do other stuff around the house before Hubby gets home.

Oh, and THANKS for the New Moon snippet. YUMMY! Can't wait.

Youngblood4ever said...

One more thing- I am totally a follower. You told me to enable my email and I did. Nice, eh?

Shelle-BlokThoughts said...

okay... clan of the Cave hair... you don't HAVE to follow everyone that follows you... I only follow people I know, or think I know:) and you can customize whether you want updates on your mobile or not. So there ya go! :)

Kristina--I don't really facebook... get on their once in a while...so now I have time! :)

Annette... that is why we will always be BBFF's! lol!

Marla-- I.DID.NOT.KNOW.THAT!!! Sweet... i have to go figure out how to do that! But then again, maybe I don't want people that know me in real life knowing the thoughts in my brain... hmmmm...

barbaloot... Jump on the band wagon already!!!

Homer and Queen said...

Clueless...I'm just clueless to Twitter. I spend way too much stalking people I don't know and begging Hot Dads to make me a Hotmama...it's down right depressing...

Kritta22 said...

I have an account that I think you follow BUT I'm not a fan. I can't figure it out.
PLUS I'm with Kristina P. I have 5 active blogs plus 4 that I write at sometimes, Facebook, flickr with 5 quilt groups. I'm on the computer for about 3 hours as it is. So I'm going to have to either cut out blogging, NOT. Or quilting...NOT! Or not twit. I choose not to twit.
Sorry girlie!

Kritta22 said...

PS I've seen with 5 commercials with it on, on the computer screens! LOL I laugh cuz I know what that blue screen is! :)

Southern Sage said...

Well I have been obsessed since I was about 3, or so I hear. Seems I found this lil thing that I like! Evidently its mostly a guy thing! But ever since then its been ON!

lol@ me in there with all those folks! Sheeesh Do ll of them really need to be uplifted like that? I mean putting someone like me with star status amongst those commoners, well if I can help em out then I reckon i'll do what I can. For the sake of their self esteem and such.

I am not that good a twitter'er'er'er I just reply to other twits. but anyway y'all can hit me up if u wanna, no skin pics required for me to follow you back either!
I dunno my name but its prolly southernsaage or southern sage


Is it sad I don't know most of the folks listed on the twit list who I am uplifting? I guess someone had to bring the smarts and the looks to that group, sigh, I do what I can.

Dr Zibbs said...

Thanks for the shout out!

And I agree, Cameron is very funny too.

As for doing things mindlessly - that's fine. Now what I need you to do is....

...(I'll email you)

Shelle-BlokThoughts said...

Queen-lunch was way to short! I totally love u...about twitter... It can get addictive like blogging so one step at a time! Hot Dads doesn't know what they're missing... And I can verify you r hot!

Kritta... Sheesh girl u r busy! Yea drop one of those things and come figure out twitter... I do follow u ur right!


Sage... I'm so glad u r so giving :)

Dr. Zibbs... Lol@ emailing me...but seriously if u need anything.

wendy said...

NO NO NO --I can't go there. I don't even text --twitter would be just to much for me. Between my emails and blogging --there is no more time for this MASS communications.

wendy said...

OH, and not to even mention stinking facebook that I haven't quite even figured out completely----nice Disneyland photos by the way

Anjeny said...

Shelle, I think I'm following you on Twitter but seriously, I haven't really gotten the hang of it yet. I'm afraid to get really into it because I've had enough obsessions already keeping me away from mommyhood..you can read a couple of that on my blog.

I'm working on Facebook and Bebo so if I figured out how to seriously work Twitter, I will be completely lost. See, besides my obsessions with blogging, I'm obsessed with Korean Drama, and reading, and sleeping, and playing computer games and I won't even mention the crafty obsessions I have that I'm spending every penny I have on.

The Dey Family said...

just found your blog today...Love it!I'll be back soon to do some more lurking.

April said...

I'm afraid.....very afraid....I'm not ready yet.

Shannon said...

Well, I don't tweet as much as I used to... but I still love Twitter!

Shawn said...

I'm glad I don't Tweet.

I don't get enough done as it is with blogging.

The Crash Test Dummy said...

OMGOSH! I'm obsessed with not getting obsessed with Twitter. Don't even tempt me, girlfriend. I totally live in my own head too and love to spy so it's just a deadly combination.
