One that collect brags and RTs them to their followers, "highlighting people's superiority complex". I am not sure which of my braggy tweets made them decide to follow me?
The one where I talk about being an Elf on the Shelf slacker mom?
The one where I discuss that I ran a whole mile?
Maybe it was the one where I talk about two things I am an expert on?
Most of my tweets are complaints or whines (gotta work on that).
Maybe I am just oblivious to my boasting, but I don't really see any on my timeline. I have a hard time bragging about myself or my kids, even a hard time taking a compliment (gotta work on that too).
In reality I know I have nothing to brag about. If I could come in first in my age group and 6th overall in a 10K like my awesome friend Kristen did yesterday - THAT would be a reason to brag. Kristen - I wanted to post a pic of you, but it is too early to ask your permission. You totally inspire me. (that sounded mushy, think of it as more hard-core)
I started this blog right after my sister and I ran an awesome (but slow) 14 mile run. It was the longest we had ever run, and later that day while still basking in the post-run bliss, I posted on my facebook status:
Then I almost instantly regretted it.
It sounded braggy. Like the people who say "I ran 15 miles this morning while most people were in bed sleeping. What did you do?" Sure - I sometimes think these things (especially to keep me going when the run is tough) - but I don't post them all over the place. Not everyone has to run (or workout for that matter).
So I decided to do my run/bragging (slow paces, short mileage, injury) talk here.
Well, I did do this one too. And
I am going to have to up my game on twitter so this new follower has something interesting to say.
