I’m on Twitter . . . I Think

A friend of mine has been encouraging to get on Twitter so as to be able to post my blog feeds there as well. Personally, I have never seen much use for Twitter, and have used it twice. So, it goes without saying that I am not well versed in what to do with it, but I am going to give it a go. 

I was able to configure the service I use to automatically post my feeds to Facebook to do the same thing to Twitter. Today is the first day, so we shall see how it goes.

It is important to grow and try new things, so I will begin my foray into the world of Twitter. Seriously though, don’t expect me to tweet every last thing I am doing, nor hang out and search hashtags. 

I will be honest though, I would much rather hand this off to someone else and say . . . go promote and have fun. Then again, I might really like it, who knows. 

I suppose that is the thing to remember when stepping outside of your comfort zone, you may like it or you may hate it. We shall see, what happens with me and my Twitter Experiment.

In case you are curious, my Twitter: handle, account, thingy is: @geoffwestlock and I will be tweeting the blog under the hashtag of #calgaryurbannomad. 

With regards to the camping trip, that has been cancelled. Why?  Well, if I were to take any such trip going anywhere, I would have to be prepared to spend about $500.00 in fuel and camping fees. For me, at this point, that is just out of the question.

I need every spare dime to put towards cards. I am so close, in relative terms that just pushing it off would be irresponsible. If I get pushed (by the boss) to take a vacation, I may take a week and hang out in my western home. 

It has been suggested that I try to find a bit of crown land to stay on. Squatting on Crown Land always feels like trespassing to me, so I have never done it or been comfortable with it. I mean when I stay at a big box store parking lot, I generally shop there, and I know that they are okay with it.

I will not stay in a campground, not if I have to pay, which is frustrating because a week in a nice campground surrounded by nature is just what I need right now. Ah well, back at it, and we shall see how it goes with regards to Twitter, as I try something new.
