So, I used to see various micro-media such as Twitter, Facebook, and Flickr as a burden. Not only did I have to come up with some astoundingly interesting topic for my regular blog, but I was now responsible for entertaining other folks who didn’t want to come and read what I had to say! Oh boy how have things changed!!!

This year has had quite a lot of ups and downs for me. One thing I have learned is that a quick funny thing the girls have done or a snapped Iphone picture allows me to connect to readers without having to take the time to sit down, write out a post, edit, write HTML, and join a blog hop. Some of you out there follow me everywhere possible and for that I thank you! I consider you my core group of blog people. There are others who are just Facebook folks or only Twitter people and that is okay with me too! I have also figured out how to get all my social media to talk to each other. I can make one post and it still gets out to everyone.

Does anyone else getting a little rush as the “likes” and comments come rolling in? I swear its like a hit of a good drug sometimes!

My newest micro-media is Instagram. I have to thank Desmond over at Life with Desmond for this one. I thought for sure I’d hate it, but to be honest, it’s my new favorite!! They say  picture is worth a thousand words. Instagram allows you to take, edit, and post pictures to all your favorite sites and even email to people who refuse to get into the blogging thing.

So.. go like our Facebook page… or find us on Twitter …or on Instagram (theroyalcoonhounds). I update there quite often and there are lots of cute pictures. I tend to also respond a bit more on Facebook.

Plus…there will breaking news later today only on my Micro-blogs! If you aren’t there-you’re gonna miss it!

  1. Just saw your post on FB and had a quick catch up. Couldn’t comment on your last post about Riley but wanted to say how sorry I am that he didn’t have longer with you, but at least he had some quality time in a loving home for his last weeks rather than being in a shelter:)

    I can’t get into Twitter at all, joined up on Instagram and promptly forgot about it. A bit like my blog and everyone else’s blogs at present! Doing micro blog posts sounds like a good idea for me:)

  2. Arg. Mom doesn’t allow me to do anything butt Blogger. I guess something is better than nothing though 🙂 So, I’m gonna miss the big news. I’m bummed 🙁

    Waggin at ya,

    • Aw, Roo! I don’t want you to miss out on my news! You can click our Facebook page link. You don’t have to sign up for Facebook since ours is a public page! Then you can see the big news later today and the other pictures and stuff you’ve missed!

  3. I love Instagram, but I’m a spotty poster there. I’m pretty sure I follow you in some other places, but I’m not sure…

  5. Funny how we can learn to enjoy things we used to hate. I was very reluctant to join Facebook and even more crazed about Twitter. Now I’m trying to get the hang of Google+.

    I feel old.

    If I was 16, I’d probably pick all this up a lot easier.

    Can’t wait to see what else you’re into by the time BlogPaws rolls around in May. 🙂

  6. I can do Blogger, WordPress and Facebook but regular Twitter leaves me in a twit and Instagram I love but haven’t used as a micro-blog – hmm, may just start with your inspiration!
