10 Tips To Avoid Totally Sucking At Twitter

Ten tips to avoid totally sucking at Twitter:


1. For the love of God…DON’T BE AN EGG. If you don’t know how to upload a freakin’ photo, then you probably have no business being on Twitter anyway. For the record, I don’t follow EGGS.


The Infamous Twitter Egg

2. On Twitter, engagement is great…but over-engagement can actually get a little bit creepy. I want to be your friend too, but if you answer/comment on EVERY SINGLE ONE OF MY TWEETS, you really start to look like a stalker. And yes, that is why I ignore your tweets now.

3. Question: Why the hell are you even on Twitter if you don’t plan to tweet? If I look at your profile and you follow like a zillion people, yet you haven’t ever posted one damn tweet, I’m going to assume you’re a spammer and block your ass. Twitter is a CONVERSATION…not an EAVESDROPPING SESSION.

4. DON’T GO ALL POSTAL ON MY ASS when you see me post a link to an article about some celebrity who you are all kinds of obsessed with. Read the damn post before you jump to conclusions about my trying to destroy mothers’ self esteem by posting an article about some celeb mom’s post-baby fitness tips. You know that whole “don’t assume because it makes an Ass-Out-Of-U-And-Me” thing? Yeah, it applies to Twitter too.

5. If you want me to follow you back and engage with you on Twitter, then talk to me and engage with me on Twitter. DUH! DON’T SEND ME A TWEET THAT SAYS, “Can you please follow me?” It makes you sound pretty damn desperate and uninteresting.

6. I understand that we all have our bad days, but for Pete’s sake, DON’T USE TWITTER AS YOUR PERSONAL PLATFORM FOR COMPLAINING ABOUT YOUR LIFE. (Isn’t that what Facebook is for)? Complaining and whining gets pretty annoying after a while. You know how perturbed you feel when your kids bitch and moan about stupid shit to you? That’s how everyone on Twitter feels when you do the same.

Summer Is Almost Here! But It Just Might Kill You …


Tweet Ahh. Summer. In just a few weeks, we’ll finally return to the glorious time of year where backyard cookouts happen every weekend, days are spent enjoying the surf and sand, and life just seems to get so much more relaxed and joyful. Of course, the season does come with one pretty big drawback — […]

A New Mantra


Tweet A couple of years ago, I was all bent out of shape about turning 35, you know, because it marked the end of my early 30s — a time which had been stamped into my brain as the last “hoorah,” or whatever as far as being remotely awesome goes. Long story short, I was […]

Giving Back Shouldn’t End After the Holiday Season

Tweet Ok, so I might be a day (or two) late and a dollar (or quite a few) short to the party, but I certainly can’t help but mention #GivingTuesday, which was celebrated this week for the second year in a row! In case you aren’t familiar with it — it’s exactly what it sounds […]

I’m Having a Mid-Life Crisis

Screen Shot 2013-11-06 at 5.29.21 PM

Tweet Yes, Yes I am. I’m 36 years old — and in some ways, I feel like a few things are kinda over for me at this point. Like fitting into the size 0 dress I wore for my rehearsal dinner. (Skinny bitch.) Or traveling the world for free all because of my kick ass […]

My First Mammogram Was Not What I Expected (VIDEO)

Tweet I have a confession to make. When it comes to breast cancer, I’ve always been one of those people who assumes it’s not something I need to be too worried about, a.) because I’m only 36 and it’s not a major concern until I reach my 40s, and b.) because I don’t have a […]

Are You Wearing Sexy Underwear?

Tweet Yes — you read that right. I want to talk about your unmentionables today. Because let’s face it — there’s no way in hell you’re going to look and feel Mom Sexy on the outside if you’re sporting a pair of white cotton granny panties and a basic nude bra underneath your clothes. (That […]
