To blog or to tweet . . . that is the question

Ah well, it's been two months since I have blogged.  But in the meantime, I have tweeted.  Many people choose to tweet and blog, or to limit themselves to one or the other form of expression.  I disdained tweeting when it first became popular (tweeting is so similar to Sweeting, I just noticed!) but now I find a timely tweet is just the thing.  At 42 tweets, I am by no means an avid tweeter.

My discomfort with tweeting is in its brevity, which usually lead to fragment sentences, which really annoy me!  But I have found if I can communicate something, and still write in a complete sentence, I'm satisfied.

My mom and I met at the Oregon Shakespeare Festival in Ashland, Oregon this summer.

The Great Society is a Great play - covers LBJs tenure from '65 - '68 - highly recommend

We saw a few plays together, namely The Great Society, Cocoanuts and The Tempest, and I saw a few plays by myself, Richard III and Comedy of Errors.  They were uniformly wonderful.  The acting was superb, the settings were unique and creative, and I was transported.  But I didn't have the time nor the energy to blog about them.  So I tweeted.  Short and sweet, I told the world I had seen the plays and loved them.  So there is a place for a tweet.

When should one blog, instead of tweeting.  Read my next post to see what I think, and please post a comment to tell us all what you think.
