I started out on Twitter because I was asked to follow a dog to try and raise some money for charity so I set up an account and duly followed and then well left it because it was, well scary … actually very scary … and I was worried about being the unpopular girl at school again who just sits on the sides of conversations.
And time passed and eventually as I discovered the blogger world and made virtual friends the virtual world became less scary and so I tentatively tried Twitter out.
And a few months down the line, I have to admit to being slightly addicted. Actually addicted is the wrong word, Twitter for me is like the coffee chat during the working day, its the personal interaction that you often don’t get in the Mummy life – its more than an addiction, its a life line. I so wish it had been around when I had Toddlergirl (incidentally less than 2 years ago .. eek !) – I think having people to chat to, to share with, to just pass the time with, would have helped so much with that all encompassing sense of isolation that happens post baby.
You know, when you realised that you couldn’t give the baby back and that it was forever and that you couldn’t go back to your pre-baby life of cocktails, high heels & fashionable clothes.
So finding other people to talk to was and is a lifeline and quite honestly thank goodness for Twitter.
So go on, give it a try and come and chat to me – I’m here !
