Follow me @bethanyev

I LOVE twitter! I love the new friends I've made, the new blogs I've found, the mommy connections, and the PARTIES!!! I started tweeting in April of '09 and didn't really understand it at first. (As do most) Plus all I really had was twitterberry on my Blackberry and that didn't help a whole lot. But somewhere I found a friend who introduced me to this whole other world of giveaways. I like giveaways. I've won a few thing through blogging and entering giveaways in the blog sphere. But twitter was so much easier and fun! happend! I found #ecowed. (heavenly music) I won my first prize at my second twitter party and it was THE GRAND PRIZE!!! I was hooked! (Sibu lotion is W.O.N.D.E.R.F.U.L!!!! and eco-friendly!)

From then on I found Ubertwitter (which is the greatest BB app for tweeting!) and my winnings have multiplied!!! I get so excited when I win, that I call my mom as soon I can!

Plus the mommies and people on twitter are so friendly and fun to chat with during and after the parties! You never leave the room without a new follower. They are also great encouragers!

Well, why am I telling you all this? I don't mean to post "hey look at me! I win stuff!"

Maybe I can be of an encouragement to those new twitterers, the ones who might be on the fence of trying it. I know I was one once. Don't give up. You might be seeing all these people winning things and it bugs you that you can't keep up. Don't worry. We are there to help you! Don't be afraid to ask! Everyone was a newbie before and I know I didn't learn on my own. It was certain people, people I don't even know outside of Twitter! It's fun and give it a try! I'm glad I did!

Here's a list of my favorite hostess's!
Resourceful Mommy
Mom It Forward
The Online Mom
3 Green Angels
Consumer Queen
The Coupon Cupboard

There's so much more to choose from!


  1. Thanks for posting this. I have a twitter account and a facebook account. Somehow, I never use the twitter account and had a difficult time understanding how it all works. So they have little parties?

    I enjoy entering giveaways. It is fun and really exciting when you win.

    I was also hesitant about mentioning I won the giveaway on my blog because I did not want to sound like, I am a winner etc. I did a post because I wanted to thank you both and send other people to visit you and your husband's blogs.

    Also, I think some people do not know about these online giveaways and it is a way to encourage others to have fun too.

  2. I started in april of 09 too. It takes a little bit to get used to Twitter but it is definitely worth it! Absolutely an addiction! ;) Thanks for posting. I'll share on twitter as well!
