From the Haphazard Twitter Files of Ms. Bookish (No. 3)


Dependent upon or characterized by mere chance.”

Well, what do you know? That’s a pretty accurate depiction of how I Twitter!

I never bother to “catch-up” on tweets I’ve missed. I mean, I’d be on Twitter 24/7 if I did that – especially since I pretty much have only one rule when it comes to Twitter. That rule is: follow interesting people. It’s a pretty good rule, if I do say so myself. But it means I end up following an awful lot of people. Because there are a lot of interesting people out there.

So Twitter is very much an of-the-moment thing for me. If the tweet is there when I check in, I get to see it. If not, well, I don’t angst about it, but I don’t see it either.

So this week’s links are all here by mere chance. Definitely haphazard.

Got to love it!

Other Interesting Stuff

  • Model Coco Rocha speaks out about the ultra young and ultra thin trend in the modeling industry: “I’m a 21 year old model, 6 inches taller and 10 sizes smaller than the average American woman. Yet in another parallel universe I’m considered “fat”…” (via @ETCanada)
  • Daily Routines: How writers, artists, and other interesting people organize their days is such an interesting site! The site is currently not posting any updates (they have a book coming out in 2011) but the archives are filled with some great stuff. (via @anndouglas)
  • Tips to improve your memory! I just knew Soduko would come in handy – and now I have a reason to splurge on blueberries, too. (via @BigBookofYou)

Just Plain Fun

  1. Care

    I twitter the same way – just a quick glance to see what everyone is tweeting about and then either crash a convo or just share a line from a book I’m reading (or whatever.) I still need to do a better job organizing lists, maybe. You do seem to follow very interesting things! Twitter is FUN.

      For some odd reason, I find more interesting links when I’m on in the morning. At night Twitter is fun because it’s so social and conversational but definitely not as many good links.

    Sweet! Thanks for the shout-out to Routines for Writers! Accidental or not, we love to know that writers are finding us and getting something out of our posts. And don’t you just love Inky-Girl?! :)

    Love and Hugs!

  3. Dawn - She is Too Fond of Books

    Oh, gosh, it’s impossible to catch up (and impractical, I think!). When I first joined twitter, a friend told me that it was like a cocktail party, you overhear bits of conversation, jump in if you want, eavesdrop if you don’t have anything to add, and walk away toward a more interesting topic when the mood strikes.

    Thanks for the link to Meg Cabot’s thoughts on the new rating system. Interesting that the group doesn’t consider what they do to be censorship (sure looks that way to me!).

    And thank you for linking to Susan Jane Gilman’s post about Politics and Prose. I couldn’t read it without tearing up.
