SustainaMom is taking names...
In my other life, I have a Twitter account that I use for work. I find it an endless source of links to great information and inspiring stories. And out of the 1,400 people that I follow, I've made a handful of truly awesome connections and come into contact with an awful lot of really nice people. Its 1 a.m. and I've broken something on my website? I bet someone on Twitter will help. Need a recommendation about X product? Bound to get some feedback from someone on Twitter.
On Saturday, I was writing an article about gardening apps for a client. "Move over, Farmer's Almanac," I typed. And then I was stuck. I haven't actually used any gardening apps. So I posted on Twitter: Can anyone recommend smartphone gardening apps?
Nothing. Not a single response. I am following some nice people, some smart people, some entertaining people. But I am not following my people. I want to follow the nice, smart, entertaining people who like to garden ... and compost, and line dry...
Although maybe y'all know more about gardening than to trust a phone app?!
I digress. The point is, I want to follow y'all! (And I'd love to see our readers following each other and connecting.)
So I've created a personal Twitter account. If you would be so kind as to leave your Twitter handle in the comments, I would love to make your acquaintance.
Please, please leave your comment in URL format, like http://www.twitter.com/SustainaMom, so we can all click through the link without typing anything.

But Jamie & Michael aren't going to help me the next time I need advice on gardening apps. I'm counting on you all to connect with me. I promise I'll try to help if you post a question!
