Lost in the Twitter Vortex

Has anyone else’s blogging suffered since they entered the world of micro-blogging?

I am shocked that I am now a regular Tweeter (@TaraDK) but quite honestly, I love the connections it breeds, from books/ authors/ publishers (a thriving community on Twitter!) to technology pundits/ reporters/ vendors. The only downside of the vortex is that it has distracted me from my original blog baby – Mingling with Words. (And alas! even as I am back here in the WordPress dashboard, I am still thinking and writing about my other love: Twitter.)

More on Twitter in future posts, but for now, let’s talk adventure reads…

For the history/biography fan, check out Linda Colley’s The Ordeal of Elizabeth Marsh: A Woman in World History, elizabeth-marshwhich I reviewed for Women’s Adventure Magazine in March. (Twitterized Review Title: One Woman’s Wonderlust, 200 Years Removed.)

pearlAnd, just in:  a review of A Pearl in the Storm, by Tori Murden McClure. (Keeping an Even Keel: A Solo Trip across the Ocean.)

Happy reading – and of course…

Happy tweeting!
