And They Say Twitter is a Time Suck

My first day as Editor of ScriptMag.com – photo by my dear friend, Dutch Doscher.

I couldn’t possibly count the number of times my family collectively rolled their eyes while I obsessively tweeted from my Mac, iPad, iPhone… and sometimes all three at once.

Tweetaholic? Maybe. Don’t judge me. It works.

In less than three years on Twitter, I have gotten the equivalent of a Master’s degree in writing, social media, and the industry. It was worth every one of my over 86,600 tweets.

Oh yeah, when I do something, I go all the way!

To all of you who shared links about craft, twitpic’d pictures of your messy desks, cheered me on while writing Slavery by Another Name, allowed me to blog on your sites, and joined me in endless writing sprints, I humbly thank you.

Some think my landing my new job as Editor and Online Community Manager of ScriptMag.com is the finish line of my journey. It isn’t. It’s just the icing on the cake.

What means the most to me during these past three years is the number of generous people I’ve met in Twitterville who I am blessed to call my friends “in real life.”

From the depths of my soul, the tips of my toes, and the bottom of my tequila bottle… thank you.

  1. Not sure if I’ve said this recently, but you never cease to amaze me. You’re inspiring and incredible. Congrats!

    • Thank you so much. That’s very sweet of you to say. Not sure if it’s tenacity or simply being a stubborn Sicilian!

  2. You are a master of social media, twitter is your specialty. And I have cleaned my desk several times since then (now if I can just find the mouse under all these papers).

    • And YOU, Roger, are the person who held my hand when I started my first blog. In fact, you are the first one to ever tweet one of my posts. I cannot thank you enough for your support over the years… and Smoky the Horse too xo

  3. Kudos to one of the women I call my Goddesses of Twitter. Jeanne, I am so happy for how things are working out for you. You deserve the success on so many levels. You work your ass off, you’re always there for your friends, and you my dear, inspire not only me, but so many. Bright blessings during your time at ScriptMag.com. Lots of love, Sidney
