Twitter and Facebook and YouTube, Oh My!

I've been busy exploring the wonders of Twitter, Facebook and YouTube the last two months. 

It's been exciting.  First, I connected with friends and family on Facebook.  It's great to be able to exchange photos and bits of news with everyone back home.

Then I uploaded videos of my amazing husband, LAWRENCE DEAN, onto YouTube.  Law is a singer/songwriter.  The videos are from a filk concert at Confluence in Pittsburgh, Pa.  Confluence is a Science Fiction / Fantasy Writers' Convention.  It's also the venue where we originally met!  Law sings regularly at the Faversham Folk Club, which meets weekly at the Chimney Boy pub.  The songs from the concert are a mix of Filk, Folk, Country and Pop. 

Having survived my foray into social media - - today I decided to tackle Twitter.  Talk about a sensory overload!  That is going to take some getting used to.  But I'm determined to watch and learn.

Not that I'm saying all that much at the moment.  But I'm sure to settle into the swing of things in my own sweet time.

Oh, and our Channel on YouTube is: MrLawDean



  1. Hi Deborah! Sounds like you are leading an exciting life over there:)) Envy!!!
    Enjoy learning Twitter--I'm still not sure I love it.

  2. I just found you through Terri (above I see!) and came over. I love following bloggers who live in England. This is a gorgeous blog--the background picture especially awesome.

    Ironically, I decided this morning I could figure out Twitter also! I've tried before. This time I realized what the possibilities are. But you have to limit your time on it or you won't get anything else done! I don't exactly love it, but I see how one can go in and out and find nuggets of information and wonderful people to follow.

  3. I still haven't done Twitter yet. Hope you have lots of fun with it!
    Thanks for stopping by my blog, btw!

  4. @Terri: England is great! Although I must confess, it took some getting used to. According to the experts (aka shop clerks): The English speak 'true' English, while Americans speak a corrupted version that needs frequent translation. Some days, it ain't easy. LOL!

  5. @Ann: No kidding. Twitter it is pulling me in like quicksand! I found I have to put a timer on to remind me that there are other things that need done.

  6. @Lydia: When you do get on Twitter, let us know, so we can welcome and follow you. BTW, Love your blog. It's so nice of you to share your medical knowledge with the rest of us. Thanks.
