I had better study up on TypePad. Even though I will be seeing you I will miss your Blog!

I am with you on the whole Twitter thing! What the heck is the allure of 10 million people each standing on a soap box shouting out absolute nonsensical abbreviations about how good their coffee was at Starbucks? Good for the fans, but not my thang.

Thanks for a fab blog Biz. Keep it up!


Mandy, it is easy to get followers on Twitter. Login and do a search for someone you know, follow them, then follow everyone they follow. When you follow someone they are notified and will often just follow you back. You can search for celebs and sometimes they will follow you back too. I have to tweet for work and that is how I got all of our work account followers.
I keep my twitter and blog fairly private so I do not have many followers, but you would love some of the peeps I follow on twitter. Michael Ian Black cracks me up, as does Jim Gaffigan!


"It almost feels like you are in a party in a large, loud room with voices reverberating off the walls and everyone is telling you something all at once. Like you aren’t really hearing them all correctly over the din, you never really get the punchline or it seems like there are some inside jokes your not privy to and I feel like I’m left saying, “Sorry, what was that? Oh wait, I don’t get it.” "

Perfect, Mandy! Excellent analogy. I look forward to reading more.


I kind of love twitter...but mostly for pop culture related stuff like saying what I like about a certain Glee episode (this week-- everything) or commenting about what's happening with the Phillies.

When I'm at a Phillies game (which is pretty often), I search for #Phillies and refresh every half inning to see what people are saying. When there's a delay or I'm wondering what the commentators said or how a certain play was called, that's how I find out. Someone, somewhere seems to be tweeting it!

I've gotten followers by searching for tweets about something I like (see #glee or #Phillies) and retweeting clever things that other people say. Sometimes, those people will then follow me. I don't care about followers or readers-- I did when I blogged but I don't anymore. I know that it can be addicting though.


I am thankful for your blog! I'm not a fan of twitter but it does give me a place to vent about current events that absolutely no one else in my life cares about ex: "Karzai wants us to bail out his bank? Eff him!" Where else can I put that?
