A Twitter Experiment--10 joy-filled tweets

For the fun of it, I searched the word "joy"on Twitter today to see what would come up. I thought I'd post what I gleaned to be the more interesting tweets, links and tweeps that popped up. So here they are, in no particular order. Maybe you'll find something that interests you here. And maybe it'll spawn a new post on your blog:

I have done that before, just put in a random word on Twitter. It's really very interesting and I use the tags alot.

BIKE LADY said...

Kristi, thanks for stopping by. What word did you search for on Twitter?

kerry dexter said...

"eager to learn through joy" --I like that. although, of course, just as much is learned through sorrow, and sometimes different faces of the same lesson.

BIKE LADY said...

Kerry, you're correct, of course. It's just that this month I'm focused on "joy." That's the theme of the month for this year's Blogathon.

kerry dexter said...

and a fine theme it is, Jackie. I am enjoying the different ways you are writing about joy...

BIKE LADY said...


I think that's why I like choosing a theme for the Blogathon. It challenges me to be creative.
