Twitter Does Me Dirty

I'm a writer. A mommy. A blogger. A mommyblogger, if you want to cleverly combine the two terms. But if you go to my Twitter page? You might just think I do something different for a living.
... Something dirty.

See, it all started when I had the brilliant idea of designing my own Twitter background. Except for one teeny-tiny factor: I know little to nothing about design. You know those people who can't type and they s-l-o-o-o-o-w-l-y do that one-fingered peck, pause, peck at the keyboard? I'm like that except instead of typing, that's my speed at piecing together webstuffs (← word o' the day). So I Googled and trial-ed and error-ed and finally put together what looked - at least on my computer screen - like a background that fit perfectly on my Twitter page without being partially obscured. I even did an informal poll here on the ol' blawg, and only one or two people said that it wasn't displaying correctly on their screens. (Plus I was tired of working on it, dammit.) So anyway, here's what the part about me is supposed to look like:

It looked perfectly fine on my screen for a long time. And then the other day I went to my Twitter profile, and I saw this:

Yeah. Something has changed, whether it's within my screen or on their website (and I'm too computer-stoopid to tell what). But wherever it originates, my Twitter page has me phonetically advertising that I "blo."

Hey, even us "working girls" have to keep up with the times.


  1. "Blo" what? (snicker snicker - sorry) - I be an innocent from the boonies of Arkie. I dunno what yew're talking 'bout!! MERRY CHRISTMAS. Oh the weather outside if frighful but the fire is so delightful and since you've no place to go, let it blo, let it blow, let it blo. Thanks for the good giggle today.

  2. Bahahahahaha! Have you been getting some shifty new followers?

  3. I also noticed your label of "Twit!" LOL You need to get your brother to help you figure out what went wrong with your page! For the most part, though, it looks really good!

  4. Ha ha - very funny! I'll watch for some interesting followers.

  5. I don't even see I BLO on your twitter page - I only see your elbow. It is sad!!!

  6. LOL! I hope you guys had a very Merry Christmas!!

  7. I have no idea how to even do backgrounds. At least you tried. HTML stuff makes me cry.

  8. hahahaha, that's awesome! Thanks for the laugh :)
