The Kiss of Death
I just groaned.
No really. I did. Even though I work by myself and no one is around to hear it. Wait. If you groan out loud but no one hears it, did you really make a noise???
But I digress.
Anyway, I think this is half the reason I started a blog. So I could groan and then be able to tell you why. But that’s what twitter was for. So I could groan and then tell you why I was groaning.
I mean, also to promote my authors’ books and stuff.
But I remember a time when I used to tell all my authors oh, you have to blog and do that twitter thing but ugh, I don’t even know what that is and I’ll never do those things. Too time consuming etc. But you have to do them.
Then of course I found Twitter. And fell in love. And the rest was history there.
But then I still would say Oh yeah yeah yeah, but I’ll never blog. That’s why I love twitter. It’s short and sweet (even though I tell really long stories in real life, I don’t know why I thought short and sweet was perfect for me (oh yeah, I just did that tweet bomb thing) but I did, and somehow I thought a blog would be terrible. Maybe because I thought I’d have to edit more. But clearly I don’t.).
But the one thing I really felt for sure was that I’d never join Pinterest. I mean, I have felt this for sure for as long as Pinterest has existed. I just don’t get it. I mean fine, I know I said that about Twitter and maybe blogging too, but still, I mean I really don’t get Pinterest.
But then I just saw Kim Sabatini’s Pinterest page for her new book TOUCHING THE SURFACE which is coming out next week (holy crap next week!!!) and I have to say, it’s pretty awesome!! I mean, I LOVE IT!!
Now, to be fair, I have read this book several times and think it’s pretty incredible, but these images are amazing because they are so spot on with what I also imagined as I read (except for maybe one (I mean come on, we aren’t sharing one brain or something. That would have been too freaky!). But wow, everything else was unbelievable.
And I sent a tweet about it.
And now I’m really nervous that within a month I’m going to have a Pinterest page. Because you know, if I tweet it, it must be a sign of what’s to come.
You heard it here first, I will NOT be joining Pinterest*
Because you know, if I blog it, it must be a sign of what’s to come.
*I reserve the right to join Pinterest in the future.
