That’s right, you read that correctly (unless you read I need grasses in which case you ought to get to the opticians too, pronto).
So I’ve been thinking about taking up running. This is a big deal, as I am at present a bit of a couch potato.
No actually, I’m being a bit hard on myself. I go to Zumba classes once a week and I walk two miles a day going to and from work. I’m not speedy, but the last part of each journey is up hill. So it’s not all bad.
But proper physical exercise just once a week isn’t enough.
In case the title hasn’t given it away, yesterday was my birthday. And a lovely day it was too. My boyfriend treated me to breakfast in bed (Coco Pops and a cuppa – the boy knows me well) and then I opened my birthday cards and presents. I got some new flip flops, a book, some Body Shop hand cream and a DVD featuring the two Coreys. The boy done good.
It’s worrying that I now seem to be incapable of doing anything without checking my phone every so often. It’s not as if I’m even expecting a phone call/text message/email, I just can’t help myself.
I read an article yesterday on Mashable about the wrong and right times to tweet. Titled “Sorry, Marketers, You’re Doing Twitter Wrong” – it certainly caught my attention! Am I doing it wrong? Actually, no.
The article says that Twitter engagement rates for brands are 17% higher on Saturdays and Sundays compared to weekdays, but that most brands don’t take advantage of this and only tweet during the week. It goes on to say that on average, only 19% of brands’ tweets are published at the weekend.
