Or maybe it's the fact that I'm home sick today. Whatever.
I posted recently about my venture into the world of Twitter, and I have really enjoyed connecting with my friends and family real-time throughout the day. It helps tremendously that I have an application on my iPhone that allows me to easily post and check my tweets frequently. I love getting emails informing me that I have a new follower (does that sound narcissistic? I hope not), because sometimes the new person is a complete stranger. In every case so far, I have opened their profile and discovered a new brother or sister in Christ.
This is such an interesting phenomenon...fellow Christians being able to encourage, entertain and exhort one another without ever meeting in person. I've been following Dr. Albert Mohler on his journey in Istanbul this week, as he updates where he is and what he is doing. It's not like a blog where I can go read entire posts on their life and learn the names of their children and where they went to school. It's just an abbreviated glimpse into someone else's life, and it's really fascinating.
I decided that I wanted to find a way to auto post my blog entries to my Twitter account (because most of my "followers" are fellow bloggers), but couldn't find any information for Blogger. All of the plug ins were for Wordpress, but my searching was finally rewarded with this site. So this is my first official post that should auto post to my Twitter account...I'm keeping my fingers crossed that I input everything correctly!
If you don't Twitter, you might want to consider taking a second look. You never know who you might meet!
