 I don't twitter, but from what I understand it's like a status update and you're limited on how long your update can be.

I've been considering starting a blog but I don't know how and I'm not sure if I would be able/motivated to keep it up.

My step-dad has an online business. He sells Max, it's a health product. It has helped my parents a lot and helped my mom recover from the chemo. If you're interested in having a look, here's the website: http://www.max.com/

I refuse to "tweet" because appreantly people who use twitter are refered to as  Twits.... No thanks! beside i facebook already and there for don't need to tweet my life.

 

I don't have a business online right now either, although once my doula service is up and running i will be making a webpage for that. but thats icing.. i still have to make the cake.

I know of a few people who have online businesses... i think it's cool! but it's lots of work!

I blog sorta... i have a few blogs out there in the universe but i forget about them or can't remember how to get back to them.. and then they go unused.

I just started a blog.  Hopefully I can stick with it.  I don't know a lot yet, but I'm getting it figured out.  Check out what I have so far: http://kermitwaswrong.blogspot.com/

I have a blog now... 3 Kids Then Me... It's all about my life, my random thoughts, things I'm interested in... It's bascially me trying to find who I am amongst the chaos of my life...

I sort of do all those to a small degree.

Twitter allows updates of up to 140 characters.  I tried doing twitter for day to day things and it was dumb ("Just made chex mix."  Who cares?  Why did I take the time to write that?) but I loved it for posting status updates when I was having a baby ("5 cm dilated, contractions 2 min apart").  My family and friends could go to the site to read or have it sent to their phones (most sent to phones) and they could turn the texts off at night (only my FIL, a lawyer, did-- everyone else wanted updates even at 2am).  I could post from my old-school-no-internet cell phone.

The other way I've used twitter is to search using tags to find out if there was just an earthquake or something.  (search #earthquake or #sandiego)  Oh!  And there are giveaways posted so I'd do a search for #giveaway, #win, or whatever I was hoping to win like #clothdiapers.  (Tags have the # symbol before the search term.  I don't think they're standardized officially though, just what I've picked up.)

Blog... I have a few but nothing updated regularly.  If you want to read my journey (mostly crankiness) about cloth diapers: http://diapertrials.livejournal.com/

I work for an online business.  Does that count?  It's a public high school that is entirely online and right now, I'm teaching Geometry.  :)

 I too have a blog.  I blog about topics of interest to me and I think others would find useful or interesting, such as info. about vaccines, breastfeeding, attachment parenting etc.  I also blog some personal stories. 

My blog is ~Darlene's Musings~  http://muppetsmom.blogspot.com/

I'm still working on starting my own little on-line business of selling homemade bath products eg: soap, bath salts etc.
