Getting Back in Touch with Twitter Friends

Well I’m pretty nostalgic this morning. I was awakened early by a thunderstorm and I’m not afraid or anything, just very close to my true feelings and thoughts. Perhaps dreaming did this to me, but I don’t remember any. Of course, this is a good thing. I hopped on Twitter and started to reflect on some good friends of mine who have fallen by the wayside since my surgery the end of January. Some extraordinary Twitter friends that have added a lot to my life and I hoped I added something to theirs. But people get busy on Twitter just like everything else, so I have been making overtures, with little result so far. Anyway, it’s been nagging on my subconscious mind in the early morning hours today.

How do you get back in touch with a Twitter friend? Being rather new to this, I’m not quite sure. I am guessing, most importantly, like any friend, you need to open the lines of communication again. Send them messages directly. Try to strike up a conversational tweet. Just this past Friday, an old friend of mine I’d lost touch with recommended me for #FollowFriday which reminded me oooops Libby you’ve sort of forgotten about that friend! Now we are conversing again.

I read the blog of one of my friends I’ve lost touch with and he’s been writing a series on growing your Twitter profile. He and one of his friends may put into a report which I think would be very useful. I’m not interested in having friends for the sake of a number, nor did he recommend that at all, he was against it. He recommends loosing people you aren’t interacting with and focusing on ones you do. Very sound advice and advice I am taking to heart.

My good friends! I want to stay good friends! Wish me luck, Libby

Sailing Take me Away to Where I’m going!

 I love the Twit Draw Graffiti Artist @Teresacooper who created this lovely piece. She has pages and pages of them on http://www.twitdraw.com. Her talent is in the detail, the color the mood and the wondrous whimsy. She makes it look so easy. One could look at them forever and on Twitter forever is a very long time!

On Twit Draw anyone can keep adding to your piece and you can to, keep adding more color, more detail. Teresa keeps it light and doesn’t spoil the mood as you’ll see in these next two:

They are similar but so different in color and mood!
I love them both. The one below I saw before it had
some of it’s finishing touches! The one in the middle just appeared. She did it in the sunshine, listening to summertime music, you can really tell.
Well get to know my friend @Teresacooper on Twitter don’t miss out on her fun drawings and her delightfully fun self!
