I have written before on the many beneficial aspects of blogging.
By far my most favorite aspect of blogging is the social interaction.
I love responding to comments on my blog as well as commenting on other blogging sites.
In addition to direct website interactions, there are many social medium platforms that bloggers use to interact with others and to promote their messages:
Before I became a blogger, my social platform of choice was Facebook (it actually was the only platform I was on).
However after dipping my toes into the blogosphere, Twitter has quickly become my preferred method of social interaction as it really gave me a way to tap into the comedic aspect of my personality.
For those who haven’t been following me on Twitter (and why on earth would you not?!?!?), I thought it would be nice to catch you up on what you have missed.
Hopefully by the end of this post you decide to join me on Twitter and continue experiencing this comedic gold 🙂
Ok last thing I want to do is brag but my blog is on track for a 5 figure profit this year (unfortunately 2 of those figures are on the wrong side of the decimal point) #killingitwithgoogleadsense

Ok I may be a fledgling blogger so last person you should be taking advice from on blogging but when I came up with this amazing idea to increase traffic I had to share: The key is to get more people to visit your blog and then visit daily! Your welcome.?

Beware of rocker bottom shoes 1st time wearing. My experience in bathroom at work: Maybe it was my lack of concentration. Maybe was principal of Newton’s first law of physics at work (or combination) but I found myself reenacting scene from Matrix mid stream. Your welcome

At Target for tax free weekend with my daughter. School supply list includes: Glue sticks, multicolor construction paper, crayons, highlighters. Honestly I’m not sure if I am sending her off to preschool or 8th grade.

I honestly think Captcha should make it a little bit trickier for our Robot friends and have a checkbox made for: “I Am A Robot.” I bet you a lot of robots would be fooled and check it, increasing Captcha’s efficiency

This next tweet was trying to capitalize on a very altruistic twitter trend called #FollowFriday where individuals graciously share twitter handles of others to build a larger combined audience and have increased spirit in the community (I think I may have missed the mark):
Have a great weekend everyone 🙂

My daughter and I each had a box of ice cream bars w 4 each. She went through hers early in the week while I kept mine. So this evening she gave me the saddest eyes asking if she could have one of mine. I did what any parent should do. I ate it #learntobudget

I won a resident teaching award in the past. Seems like I still got it: My daughter was prepping for a vocabulary quiz and the word was lavish. She asked if she could get a hint and I said I would use it in a sentence. “This is so lavish.” (she was not amused) LOL pic.twitter.com/cqj7OdJjmG

I don’t want to toot my own horn but I’m living proof that if you set your mind & pour your heart into a project your reward will come. 6 months after I launched my blog and spent countless hours creating content, I now have a website that is apparently worth $8.95. #hardwrkpays pic.twitter.com/JhxFNYaqVT

I just wanted to let everyone know that I made 10% return on an investment in TWO days! That’s right I bought 2 books of forever stamps for $20 at the old 50 cent/stamp price and now the new stamp rate is 55 cents! Warren Buffet eat your heart out!

Every now and then I also like to throw in some unusual imaging studies I have come across at work:
