  2. I am terrified! I have to play with this for awhile to figure out all the ins and outs!

  3. John Says:

    I don’t get it fully either and I’ve been dinkin’ with it for a while now. Still a rather odd form of communication in my opinion. 😉

  4. It feels odd right now. But I am pretty quick at picking things up. Fingers Crossed!

  5. You’ve beaten me to it, guys. Wouldn;t know a tweet if I fell over it. But I just know I gonna have to learn. Bummer! The whole scenario of reducing (bastardising?) conversations to 140 characters leaves me cold. But, then I am a journalist and writer. Still . . . Good luck and I’m happy to share any lessons you learn! David.

  6. David, I am the same in a way. But I think it is going to be helpful with sharing real time as we do things at the plantation. Also for those who would love to go antique shopping. I can share the finds!

  7. Ah, when you’ve got a business to promote, you’ve just got to be part of the game. I am still waiting for Google’s algorithm to catch up with my new blog but it should happen soon. We made some mistakes when first setting it up but that appears to be rectified.Then I’ve got to work out how to upload some of your recipe photos and make that section look tasty and appealing! Also, get my wife’s gardening material into shape. She is a horticulturist and designs a lot of gardens around Brisbane and south-east Queensland. Ah, so much work! Good talking with you folks! D.

  8. David, I feel your pain! We are doing the same as we try and navigate these media sites.

    Congratulations! More progress, another step ahead. See you on Twitter! 🙂

  10. I hope I see you. I’m still figuring this out. Right now I’m trying to pick a link on Facebook for it, but can’t seem to find it yet.

    am now following you on twitter and have been on FB. does this mean I am a stalker???? LOLOL

  12. No way! I love to have you join me there! It just new and exciting ways to keep in touch! And as I start getting busier, its going to get harder for me to be on the blog as much. I love you Terry! You are one of my favorite friends on here because you have been with me from almost the beginning!

  13. I just joined twitter too! Not sure how it works, yet . . . I guess we’ll be figuring it out together!

  14. Well, I think I have done ok so far. I have four tweets that I have done tonight and got the follow me button installed on WordPress. I even got our Pinterest site up and going and added that button to WordPress. Now I just need to figure out what to do with all of it! lol

    You’re on a roll. There are many B&Bs on Twitter, so follow some of your faves and learn from them. They’ll be learning from you also! Glad to see you’re a Tweeter!

  16. Thank you! I am trying! We also got Pinterest up too! I don’t have much there yet because I am running out of time tonight. Got to get to bed so we can head to the plantation tomorrow.

  17. Okay. Gotcha, Michelle. Twitter has its place in social media. It should be great way for you to connect with those in the B&B community and those interested in this type of stay. You’ll learn as you go. It’s not that tricky. 🙂

  18. I think I am picking it up a little better tonight. I am usually pretty quick at this stuff.

  19. Angeline M Says:

    I love Twitter! Follow so many interesting people, a lot on photography and travel. My handle is @AngelineM1 see you there 🙂

  20. We are just learning so you have to bear with us until we get this figured out! But I did send 12 Tweets today. I think a health start 😉

  21. Lance Romel Says:

    Reblogged this on Jericho777's Blog.

  36. I hope you realize you can link your blog to your Twitter account, so that every time you post to your blog your post automatically feeds to your Twitter account. You can do the same for Facebook.

    Go to “Dashboard,” then “Settings” – Click on “Sharing.” All the options come up, including Facebook and Twitter. Then you’ll “Tweet” automatically without having to think about it.

  37. Thank you! I need someone like you to point the directions. I would have found it sometime, but knowing it now I can do it sooner!
