Love vs. Awkwardness… and What Else Led You To “Me”

Every once in awhile, social media makes me giggle. Like I’m fooling people.

Like these people who followed me on Twitter in the past ten days:

  • Jeffrey Hayzlett (@JeffreyHayzlett): Global Business Celebrity. BestSelling Author: Running the Gauntlet & The Mirror Test – Speaker, Thought Leader, Sometime Cowboy.
  • S. Chris Edmonds (@scedmonds): Speaker, author, senior consultant with @kenblanchard, author Leading at a Higher Level & two tweet books, @JonesAndRain member.
  • Mohamed Osam (@mohamedosam): A blogger and SEO and social media enthusiast. CCIE-Security, CEH, MCSE and PMP certified. I also do a lot of C/C++, php, asp, MySQL and MS-SQL programming.
  • Bob Richards (@Bob_Richards): Space entrepreneur. Orphan of Apollo. A Founder of the International Space University, Singularity University, SEDS, Odyssey Moon & Moon Express (CEO).
  • Ken Blanchard (@kenblanchard): Speaker, Business Guru, and Author of over 50 books, including the One Minute Manager.
  • Karen Bergreen (@karenbergreen): Comic, dictorial mother of two, and author of NYT and O Magazine recommended book – Following Polly.
  • Scot Finnie (@ScotFinnie): Editor in Chief Computerworld, journo, IT, mobile, security, cloud, CoIT, OSes, media, green, finance. Mac geek, Android user. Father. Married to @cyfinnie.

Do they all know they connected with this girl?

Thanks, Twitter, for suggesting me – I had not followed any of them prior to them following me – but let’s be real here.

I tweeted “L’eggo of my #” and laughed at myself for five minutes afterward, and my measure of social media influence maxed out right around the time I tweeted:

Anyway. I don’t care what gets you here – I’m glad you’re are. Sorry if you got tricked into coming here thinking I was an expert in anything.

And by anything, I mean anything. Like these search terms that have led to You’ve Got Nae.
