Do Tell

Adrienne of What Lola Wants gave me this award. Thank you, amiga for passing this Tell Me About Yourself Award on to me. Instead of a trophy, I get to share 7 random facts. So put this on your mantel:
7 Random Facts: 
  1. I don't drive a car.
  2. I am most definitely a "Cat Person."
  3. My favorite vegetable is the humble potato.
  4. I love shopping at Target.
  5. I dislike wearing socks. Except when it's cold.
  6. Right now, I'm into listening to this SONG
    NOW Rinse and Repeat.
  7. Coffee is my religion.
This is award is now bestowed to: 
Look Ma! I'm in the funny papers! The Citizen Rosebud gets a shout-out in local weekly.
Another recent accolade received was a mention in the annual "Best Of" issue of the Sacramento News & Review. My kudos is in the catagory for Best Twitter Feed. I tied second place with our celebrity mayor, the former basketball star, and now City Hall employee, Mayor Kevin Johnson. So T'ANKS Sac News & Review for the honor! 

So if you want to get a taste of my near- award-winning twitter feed, be sure to follow me: @citizenrosebudz

Here are my 5 easy tips for tweeting: 
  1. Keep it TASTY. Soundbites are short, pithy and memorable communiques that are easy to understand. This is Twitter at its best. 
  2. Re-tweet the SWEET. What I'm saying is: SHARE the love. Talking only about yourself on twitter is b-o-r-i-n-g. Just like in real life. Take some time to share other people's projects, links and relevant information.
  3. Be a TWEETHEART. Show appreciation. Say Thank-you. Shout out. Acknowledging the folks that support you is good manners, and it feels nice.
  4. Be YOURSELF. Just do it in an interesting way.
  5. Promote the QUOTE. People LOVE a good quote. When you find one, share it on Twitter!
Let me call you Tweetheart. Oh darlin', I tweet. A LOT. @citizenrosebudz
Here are some good peeps to follow on Twitter: 
  • Wendy Brandes: Style Maven, Jewelry Designer. @WendyBrandes
  • Nathan Fillion: My celebrity crush @NathanFillion
  • Style Pantry: A Fashion/Style Daily Read @stylepantry
  • Grit & Glamour: MY Fashion & Social Media Maven @gritandglamour  
  • Alice Poet: Pithy and Poetical. Cuz she's a real poet @AlicePoet
  • Huffington Post:"Reader's Digest of the Internet @HuffingtonPost 
  • The New York Times: B/C it's the fucking New York Times @nytimes

Congrats on the newspaper recognition!! I have Twitter frustration, because where I work during the day, Twitter is blocked. So I can only Tweet at night during the week and I am often too tired or busy to remember. I am attempting to keep it pithy, but I wish I could do this more often!!

sylvia @ 40PlusStyle said...

Congrats on the almost award. You ARE a good twitterer. I must say I struggle with Twitter. Hard to keep up and come up with interesting sound bites...

Adrienne said...

Great tidbits about yourself! Thanks for spreading the bloggy love :)



You don't drive a car?! I'm always amazed when people don't drive. Guess that's cause my hometown is definitely NOT set up for those who are car-less.

Loved reading more about you. And thanks for the props, honey!

Unknown said...

Hoo-ah! Of course you'd be the best Twitterer ;)
Thanks for the pass on.
A great way to end the week!

Unknown said...

Oh Bella!
Help :)
My won't work anymore :(
Should I start over, maybe?
i reset everything, it gave me a new one, but it won't work either...
Why does the Bit dislike me so?

Bonnie said...

You deserve all this and more! That's so cool about the Sac News!

You might have to drive a car if we are ever going to meet. No?

Praise to the coffee gods.
