can someone help try to explain to me how to use "twitter" or what the difference is between that and "loud twitter" (which seems more complicated and i almost had set up but it connected to the wrong lj account... ugh... i'm having issues with the same thing everyone says is supposed to save me so much trouble sending updates! lol go figure that!!!

Loud Twitter is just a feed of your 'tweets' to your journal. I don't use it because anybody who wants to hear what I have to say on Twitter follows me on there already anyway so, unfortunately, I can't help you with loud twitter.

Do you use Firefox? There's a firefox addon for Twitter that keeps the notification on the bottom bar of your browser. I can see that there are tweets to be ready from there and also post with one click.

i do use firefox, but is the twitter something that connects people to each other just like facebook or myspace?? with the updates?

i guess what i want is loudtwitter then... i was hoping this was something that could update all of my pages simultaneously!! like a myspace, facebook, and lj all in one. i might just have to try the loud twitter again...

With loud twitter you still need to post updates via twitter and then Loud Twitter will broadcast it for you. Since I don't use it, I don't know how many different blogs you can update.

Twitter is a social networking system but it's different from facebook or myspace. You have a 140 character limit for updates. Tweets are really just short blurbs. A lot of people post some inane stuff nobody really cares about, LOL. Which is why a lot of people say they hate Twitter.

Anyway, their here is their help page, which can probably answer your questions better than I ever could: http://help.twitter.com/portal

I do not twitter, as of yet.
I just now read your updated profile.
I am so sorry for your loss. You really seem to have bounced back pretty well. I will try to figure out the furshlugginer quiz on fb soon.
Will you try to have other children?
How do you cope?
I wish I could hug you right about now.

awe thanks for the hug :) i actually plan to post it again, it's a hard year to raise funds for charity... so many are hurting financially themselves.

the only thing that makes it any easier and any harder is always time and memory, i try to focus more on what is versus what could have been... it seems to help. plus the fund raising is very therapeutic to me. i feel like my son accomplished something when we've raised money to help other babies have their full 9 months to develop, it's a chance he didn't get but can give to others. it means a hell of a lot to me... it makes me feel like my son is there with me most of all when i take that walk. the hardest day of the year is still groundhog's day... the day i lost my son.

i do want to have at least 2 children someday... i want to be a stay at home mom too, but i don't believe that will ever happen!! money is always the issue. right now i'm just trying to get my debts paid off so that i can justify trying again one day...
