I try to post 2-3 times a week. The Nation may have noticed that I'm not keeping up.
I have two related problems. The first is that my actual job job, as opposed to the job of promoting Responsible Ticket Journalism, has been very demanding the past three months. I believe I've had one day off the last 75 days or so. This means I don't get to listen to The Little One as much as I had been, or as much as I would like to.
The second one is that I don't have time to write much -- spare time is spent taking care of the sod house, visiting Mrs. Plainsman's family, eating. And when I do, I go to my list of topics -- and, truth to tell, they're starting to look a little stale. Not all of them, and I'll try to start cranking stuff out here again shortly, but you'll be able to tell -- I'll be doing some scraping, and I'll probably apologize when I do.
But I got to thinking --
This thing will be 2 on June 30. Over 300 articles. Basically from listening to two shows and some of the weekend stuff, hardly any BaD or Norm. I'm grateful that traffic continues to grow, but I'm thinking you know, this site could use a good kick in the shorts. I mean, how many articles on The Ticket's lousy signal can you tolerate? How many ways are there to say that I wish The Hardline weren't so vulgar? So I'm thinking I gotta keep the Faithful Confessor stimulated, entertained, informed.
How can I improve my exposure to what the Nation is hearing and thinking?
Well . . . one thing I gotta do, I gotta go where The Nation is going.
So, with extreme humility (for the very best of reasons, as you will see) it is my honor to invite you to:
Follow me on Twitter: @Plainsman1310
|All cleaned up for my Twitter debut|
This is actually a little embarrassing, because while I get the basic idea of Twitter, I know none of the lingo, I know none of the # or acronyms or yfrogs. And I don't understand half of what appear to be the very hippest of the tweets. I'm trying to get up to speed and hope soon to be able to participate in the Tworld without soiling myself. I'll probably do more receiving than tweeting, but if I get a follower or two I'll try to repay your patronage with the occasional piquant observation.
Maybe I'll even be allowed to join The 2300!! (I told you I'm embarrassed.)
And, as honored as I am invite you to follow me on Twitter (jeez, that sounds so nakedly self-promotional), I am even more honored to report that my first follower -- he must have found me because the first thing I did was to follow as many Ticket guys as I could find -- is none other than @tweetgrubes himself, That Nice Young Michael Gruber.
Now I'll have even less time to write.
