August means holidays! We had an extended break this year as our drive to the South of France took a while but we had a fabulous time thanks to three very successful AirBnb stops ( we used AirBnb for the first time this year – contact me for more info) and Canvas Holidays who were instrumental in giving the kids a great holiday, they are already talking about next year!
So as well as Theatre South East having a Bloglovin account – now this blog has too!
Give us a follow or follow me on the wordpress reader – and keep in touch.
Last night someone asked me why I don’t post as much on Facebook as I used to. It made me evaluate why I have become less enchanted with Facebook over the last few months.
Being of a certain age, it did not seem that long ago when mobiles became necessary. My childhood was spent without one, we got our first computer /email address when I was in my early twenties and certainly social media hadn’t even been thought of.
Twitter has really made me cross today, so need to vent.
I did say that I wanted to keep this blog for my theatre musings and so I shall. But as my theatre tweeting and retweeting is spiralling out of control and is the main cause of this anquish I thought this post was justified.
I love twitter, I have said that before, and I do, but I do like to tweet everything, and retweet things, and comment, unfortunately filling up my followers timelines with a lot of things that they are not necessarily interested in.
I maintain 6 different twitter accounts – yes 6, on behalf of little local companies and friends, so I am quite used to swopping between accounts. That is not my problem. When I first joined twitter I should have set up several ‘personal’ accounts too. One to tweet about Theatre, one to tweet about health, one to play quizzes on, one for work , one for East Grinstead etc etc. All the things I am passionate about.
I love twitter, not sure I have mentioned that yet. I lurk a fair bit and post and retweet what interests or amuses me. Anyway lounging around on Wednesday night I saw a ticket agency @Shows_inLondon tweet that they had a competition for two tickets so see ‘Let the right one in’ at the Apollo Theatre – the only stipulation was that the winner had to go the following night. I nonchalantly retweeted.
Following morning I was working away when my phone beeped at about 11am to say I had won the tickets. What followed then was nothing short of panic!
