Follow me on Twitter

Reluctantly – kicking and screaming and tearing gouges in the flooring with my fingernails – I’m being dragged into the 21st century. Yes, I've started a Twitter account. Okay, let me rephrase that: I was talked into starting a Twitter account by my much more media-savvy Older Daughter and more more realistic husband.

The reason behind this hesitant move into social media is because I'm trying to build my platform. Exciting moves are afoot on the writing front, in both the fiction and the nonfiction side of things, and Twitter is a powerful and concise way to get a message across. So...I'm on Twitter.

(Well, let me amend that: We're on Twitter. Don and I are both working off the same Rural Revolution account. Believe me, you don't want to miss Don's hilarious sense of humor on this media platform.)

So, dear readers, I am begging a favor: If you have a Twitter account, please follow me at @rural_rev

Let's rock those tweets! Or twits. Or tweeters. Or whatever the heck they're called.


  1. Wish I could join you but have been permanently banned due to my questions (always polite!) to my federal senator. Good luck to you two, for as long as it lasts.

  2. Is that why I can no longer get to the Daily Malcontent? I keep getting a Weebly 404 msg.

    1. Actually, he dropped the blog before Twitter loomed on the horizon. See this post:

    2. I have been wondering about Don’s blog too. I really liked it.

  3. I'm only on Facebook where I already spend too much time so I don't trust myself to have other social media accounts. I sure am excited for you and wish you wonderful success!! ❤

  4. I don’t participate in twitter (or indeed most social media) due to the speech censoring going on there. Make sure you don’t run afoul of their “hateful conduct“ policies and accidentally “deadname” or “misgender” anyone on there...

  5. Done. Twitter is a great source of breaking news; lots of great pundits to follow that will keep you entertained!

  6. I tried Twitter once, but kept getting "friend requests" from strangers who looked like pretty young girls. Doubtful they really were, but my wife would have other ideas about them I'm sure. Twitter was soon cancelled after that!

    Good luck with your writing endeavors, I really enjoy reading your works.

  7. I don't comment very often, but I have been a loyal reader since 2012 or so and I am now following you on twitter too. It is a good platform.

  8. Found you out there in twitter land!! Yeah!

  9. Welcome to the jungle.

  10. Pardon my tongue, but while you're there, "Don't Let The Bastards Get You Down."

    The truth fits. But edit my words as you will. (Knowing, of course, as you do, that the term simply means a son with no mom.)
