Twitter intimidated me for a long time. I didn’t understand it, and really had no desire to understand it. I did, however, in a moment of insanity, sign up for an account on Twitter about two years ago. I did it to follow an animal cam in Africa. Suddenly, people began following me, which I found intriguing, since I had zero Twitter activity.
Recently, a homeschool organization I follow on Facebook announced a Twitter party, and the giveaway was enticing. So, I put a toe into the Twitter waters. Now, I guess you could say I’ve started treading water.
I still have a lot of anxiety about Twitter. There is a lot going on out there, and it is easy to be overwhelmed. What overwhelms me most of all is how much has changed in the past two or three years since I have been in the blogging and writing world. It is hard not to get the feeling that I am sadly behind the times.
I went to bed two nights ago positively panicked about my social media profile. Ah! Until I was brought back to that timeless truth that it is God who ordains the times we live in and sets us in the middle of them. It is He who places people in their spheres of influence “for such a time as this” and ultimately, he is the One who promotes.
I will continue to take advantage of every opportunity to learn more about what’s out there in the world beyond our little homeschool. Like this giveaway to Connections Network for example, put on by a fellow homeschooler over at Raising Arrows. Hope I win!
