Twitter Follower Roundup 2012!!

Whale of a Tweet! As promised, and as a continuation of my Follower Roundup 2012, I bring you my Twitter Followers! Most of these folks I've met being involved in WEGO Health's regularly scheduled Health Activist Tweetchats, held every Tuesday, 3p EST (1p Mountain time). But some of these folks found me on their own! I'm just learning Twitter, and I think I need to pick up one of those "...For Dummies" books. But I'm having fun so far! Thank you to my Twitter followers for such a lovely welcome!

Note: I've excluded some followers that look to be commercial sites for advertising only. If you feel that you have mistakenly been excluded for that reason, please contact me and I'll add you back in!

Thank you again, to everyone who has followed me on Twitter! It genuinely makes me smile with each new follower, re-tweet and favorite. I'm having a lot of fun learning everything that Twitter does.

Next update: Tumblr and Facebook followers!

  1. My spouse and I absolutely love your blog and find most of your post's to be exactly I'm looking for.
    Does one offer guest writers to write content for yourself?
    I wouldn't mind publishing a post or elaborating on many of the subjects you write
    related to here. Again, awesome site!
