I'm All A-Twitter

When I first heard about Twitter I thought it seemed like a serious case of TMI.  I mean, why would I want to share my every move with my friends and colleagues?  And I certainly couldn't understand why I'd want to follow a stranger around.  For months I just wrote it off as an elaborate way to stalk each other and steered clear of it.  Then came the election, and Rick Sanchez was there on CNN tweeting all the time.  It looked kind of fun, but still I thought it was all too much and completely unnecessary.  

It wasn't until some of my Creative Glass Guild of Etsy friends started Twittering en-masse that I began to understand the value of tweeting.  For a while now I've been struggling with how to make my Etsy shop more visible.  I imagine the same could be said now for this blog.  Art's Desire is a new business for me so while I may have some loyal followers, it's a pretty small group right now.  But with Twitter I can now share my work with a larger audience (and hopefully a growing one!).  So I invite you to Twitter along with me and see what the future brings!
