what’s the deal with Twitter?

I cannot tell you how many times I hear “What is the deal with Twitter?”  Or, “I don’t get that Twitter thing.”  While Facebook profiles seem to be universal now, the world appears to be divided on Twitter.  People either get it or they don’t.  I love Twitter.  I did not always love Twitter, but now I really love, love Twitter.  So, what is the deal really with Twitter?

who is your inspiration? I will share mine with you –

Last week, I received an email AND a phone message from two local moms that they were loving the blog.  Awwww….they made me feel so awesome.  What I could not believe was that the email stated that I was an inspiration.  Me – an inspiration – no way!  I could have floated to pick the boys up at school that day; I was on Cloud 9.

I started to think a lot about inspiration after this…..and, who inspires me.  Turns out, I have a pretty lengthy list of celebrity and personal inspiration, so I decided to share just a few with you.

No surprise that my celebrity inspiration list begins with Mark Zuckerberg (I love facebook).  Zuckerberg changed and continues to change the way we live, communicate, and interact while creating his social platform (he left Harvard without graduating to pursue his dreams)!  I find it amazing when someone has such open-ended passion and vision.  Zuckerberg is the type of inspiration that my boys’ generation and ones thereafter will continue to channel.

a tiny proposal

What date is it? For a moment this morning when I woke up, I really was not sure.  Then I remembered it is December 28, 2010 – just a few days before the start of 2011.  Last week, I questioned whether to “tweet or not to tweet” over the holidays?  I received answers across the spectrum, and my choice landed somewhere in the middle.

My little “Backngroove-Adventure” formally started just a few months ago, and I was going with such momentum that I think that I naturally needed a little breather.  My boys were on winter break, my oldest son turned 10, and our friends were visiting from CALI….so I did what I could do to keep up, but not sure that I did enough?  Both professionally and personally, I am a little behind on my Social Media.

to tweet or not to tweet over our egg nog?

Yesterday was one of those days that I accomplished ABSOLUTELY NOTHING.  Do you ever have a day like that?  It seemed as though the more that I tried to get on track, the less I was on target.  The mood started to creep into today, so I took a few steps back, went spinning (thanks Laurie), and now I am possibly back on track.  BUT, wait today is the boys last day of school before winter break, and I am just back on track?  Which brings to mind, winter break and how does a mom reconcile veering off the road for 1-2 weeks or more?  This is new territory for me, so I will not even pretend to be an expert.  All that I know is that even as an at home mom, winter break and other school vacations are completely disruptive to all schedules.

This morning, I tweeted to @AnnEvanston (social media expert) questioning what her thoughts may be on social media & what happens over the holidays?  I am anxious to hear Ann’s thoughts.  For bloggers, business owners, entrepreneurs & mompreneurs, and everyone in between, maintaining a brand through social media is becoming more and more important.  How do we fit all of it in and be “present” for our kids, extended families, partners/husbands/wives?
