Well helloooo! I am not at all tupsy on a Sunday afternoon. In case you were wondering. So, you may have noticed that things have been looking a little different over here. For one thing, I am now purple. Zoinks! as Rassles would say. It was time for a change, I thought. Thoughts?
Nextly, and I'm not sure if you've noticed this, but I can now be found at www.diaryofwhy.com. Yes, I have dropped three whole syllables from my you are ell, and now it all rolls so trippingly off the tongue. No more pesky dot blogspot dot com for me, although if you insist, you can still find me there as well. But why would you want to? You see, I had put off purchasing my own domain name for all these years (nearly five, for those who are counting), because I had assumed that it would be a) prohibitively expensive and b) beyond my technical expertise. But you know what assume means, as my boss says menacingly every single time someone uses that word in her presence, and lord help you if you say no, because she will tell you what it means. (Every single time.) But as it turns out, I am acquainted with knowledgeable people with loftier aspirations for my blog than I myself have, who gave me just the gentle nudge that I needed to get off my duff and buy my own domain name, already. Because as it turns out, it is neither expensive nor complicated, and in fact is a) laughably cheap and b) embarrassingly easy.
And, not only that! But, as you may also have noticed or not, I have taken the plunge and joined Twitter. I am all twitterpated over here. In my typical curmudgeonly and social media-averse fashion I held out as long as I could, but once again, by people wiser than myself I was finally shown the error of my ways. And so far it's great! Except. Erm. This is a little embarrassing. I am feeling a bit...lonely...over there. You know. In the Twitterverse. Twittosphere. The Twitscape. I am following a couple people and a couple people are following me, and that is all well and good. But! It could be even weller and gooder, I am thinking, ya know? So first, I throw the question to you, Internet: Who should I be following on Twitter? And secondly--and I only ask this because it is almost(ish) my birthday--nothing, and I mean nothing (no, seriously, stop showering me with gifts already) would give me more pleasure (on my birthday(ish)) than if you would consider following me on Twitter, Internet. (Linky-link to your right --->).
And that's it for this week's edition of Tipsy Sunday Blogging. Zoinks!
