Twitter, Twitter Little Star...

So, my friends, I've succumbed at last. I am now a Twitterer. I'm Twittering. I have a Twitter. Honestly, this hot social media movement has very wisely developed a language all its own -- it will probably take me months to learn the lingo. Whatever the phrase would be for I've jumped on the Twitter bandwagon, that's the phrase I'm looking for.

I attended a do-it-yourself social media workshop last night sponsored by Local First Arizona, and came away with an appreciation of the power of Twitter. Then once I read Chris Brogan's article, 50 Ideas on Using Twitter for Business, I was sold, as they say. I'm going to give it a try.

So please... help me to develop my Twitter group. Follow my Twitter.

50 Ways to Tie a Scarf

I wish I were an artist -- if I were, I would draw pictures for you of the more than 50 different ways that I know of to tie your Silk Road Spirit scarf. I'm working on a project now to write out the steps to the most popular scarf-tying styles, but so far, I'm not convinced the descriptions are going to help all that much (though it may help to quality you for the America's Cup yacht racing team). Eventually, we hope to have at least one picture of every imaginable knot on our site.

In the meantime, while you're waiting for us to get our acts together, I think you'll be most impressed with the Scarf Tying Guide from a company called Texere Silk. They offer step-by-step instructions and full color illustrations for more than 50 ways to tie a scarf. And if you love hand painted silk scarves, you're going to love this site. Enjoy!
