I finally did it…


Yep, after years of avoiding it, I finally caved and set up a Twitter account. For the record, I’m not a huge social media user in my private life. When I thought of opening up a dog daycare business years ago, I set up a Facebook account in order to network. Well, I get on that damn thing about once a month, if I can remember. It annoys the hell out of me. Why? Cause it’s messy. It’s cluttered and claustrophobic. Allow me to explain why this is such a weakness of mine.

I grew up in apartments all my childhood and we moved nearly every six months. Hell, we even lived in a campground for a few months. Needless to say, we never had a lot of furniture. A couch if we had the money, we slept in sleeping bags when I was little, and we occasionally had a TV. So, I lived in…spacious surroundings. It’s taken a lot for me to allow my husband to buy two couches. We have this basket thing he likes that drives me crazy. Not because it’s unpleasant to look at, but because it is rather large and seems to take up too much space. You see, my husband comes from a home crammed with stuff in every corner to the point that I’m not sure exactly the color of his parent’s walls. Okay, that might be a little dramatic, but you get the picture.

So, on to why I’m rambling about my need for order and space. Twitter, goodness me, gives me a headache. I’m slowly getting used to it, but I don’t have a blank spot on my screen when I’m logged into it. I want to spell stuff out and the 160 characters makes it more like texting. Hashtags and weird codes that mean nothing to me are driving me insane. Bottom line, it’s messy. I will say, though, that it feels slightly less chaotic than Facebook.

Alas, woe is me. I’ll get over it and probably become addicted to it like most others. I’ll likely use it more than Facebook since I think the cute bird symbol is way better than an ‘F’ boxed in blue. Lame marketing, Facebook.

In conclusion, the reason I’m on these social media sites is because I really like hearing from readers, learning from authors I follow, and being part of something bigger than just me. It’s a great feeling and I hope to one day be on Twitter and Facebook chatting it up with those who enjoyed my book. Then, I won’t notice all the clutter.

If you want to follow, you can find me at #booksbylkevans and I also have a it under the ‘Where to find me’ section off to the side (the spot on my website that feels too cramped).

P.S. Sorry for the longwinded post. I really need to learn to edit myself ;)
