This ‘N That Thursday

 

Well it’s that time again…

this-n-that-3

 

Last week in my This ‘N That Thursday I posted about my stats and I am happy to say that I have surpassed 50 followers this past week, wahooo!!!

As you know from my post Going Live, I have been working on getting the hang of Twitter and I do have some followers there as well but I gotta tell ya it sure is a lot to keep up with Winking smile I really appreciate everyone’s comments and helpful hints.

I visited Titan the other day and he is doing great! Did a little work with Cheyenne and she did do better than last week but I think the old dog “I no longer have to listen” has kicked in…LOL We’ll keep at and hopefully she will straighten out before the WD. We had a total of nine training dogs running, here is a video of the dogs that trained that day, well except for Cheyenne since I was the one running her I opted not to try to take pictures at the same time.

 

Hero Dog

With all the negative media out there regarding Pit Bulls I thought I would post this link about a very positive and wonderful story about a dog named Titan (pretty cool my boys shares his name). I enjoy reading these stories that have such a happy ending and show the true nature of a dog raised right. Enjoy!!

Going Live

Yesterday was my family reunion, I don’t know abut you but I LOVE to get together with family, it’s always a good time! My lemonade pie was a huge hit, both pies gone in a flash and I put two – 2lb. boxes of fudge in the raffle, people were trying to be the first to get it off the raffle table, I was even offered cash for a box of it Laughing out loud Anyway, I try to get around to almost everyone and catch up, while doing this I was chatting with one of my cousins whose profession is job assistance to students. She asked how my job search was going and I shared my last interview details with her, she then told me about a conference she had just attended about getting connected with employers and said that Twitter is the new way of getting in the loop for jobs…who knew! Apparently there are a lot of employers out there who use this to post for open positions.

I know some of you Tweet but I will be honest I really didn’t understand the whole Twitter thing. So today I did a little web search to try to understand it and yes I now have Twitter, check it out on my sidebar. The task in front of me is to go back through all the places I sent resumes to and see if they Tweet and if so start following. And yes I have to get familiar with the whole process, I played around with it a bit and Tweeted some of my posts from here and I am now following some of you that I found on my to follow list. I haven’t used it on my phone yet, I would assume it is the same.

Now I have some questions….

1. Can I have more than one account so I can keep all my blog stuff separate from job stuff?

2. If I can’t do 1. then I need to use my real name, oooh scary stuff, I have always liked that I am Misty to everyone in Blogville and I would hate to loose that so what do others think of using their actual identity on Twitter? If I do please tell me you will still call me Misty, Misty Shores or recently I have been referred to as MSC (I like that one too), LOL

3. How do you like Twitter?

4. When you Tweet your blog post do you copy and paste the link or do you use the Twitter button at the end of your post? I did it both ways just not sure which is correct. I’m a little confused on the Tweeting part Winking smile

5. And that whole trends thing, way off, definitely not me, how they have come up with the stuff listed there from my info is beyond me, so did you change yours if it didn’t fit?

So any comments, suggestions or helpful hints would be greatly appreciated by this newbie Twitter TweeterOpen-mouthed smile
