Why I might Twitter

Constant readers will know that though I do indeed have a Twitter page and some 30-odd (by definition) followers, I last tweeted over two years ago and haven't had any interest in putting up anything new since.

But as TypePad's outages have become a more or less daily occurrence since its "new and improved" posting software went live last month, I've grown more and more annoyed at stopping by boj only to see that the most recent post(s) didn't appear as scheduled.

So I thought to myself, gee joe, why not use Twitter to tell the world that TypePad's messed up again, so stop getting all mean and pushy about a post that didn't appear on time.

But then I thought, that's not gonna work for anyone except those of the 30-odd Twitter followers who're also fans of boj.

In India and Romania and Argentina, there's not gonna be a lot of excitement about my Twitter updates.

So I guess I'll just file this idea away with all the others I've never pursued.

Any thoughts on other ways I might solve the problem would be most welcome.

I like the Twitter idea. (Though I'm a bit biased as I actively use my http://twitter.com/CoryOBrien account.) It is a good way to keep in touch with your readers though, and it's quick and easy.

You could also check out Tumblr if you're looking for a hosted blog type solution. (http://tumblr.com/) They've made it really easy to create a great looking blog, and I think their update cycle is a little easier to live with.

Oh NOEZ Joe. You'll ruin your TechnoDolt status!

I like following someone that never posts. It's simpler that way.
