I Made a Snapchat!

  
Last weekend I made an account on Snapchat! I saw plenty of people using it, but I hadn’t wanted to sign up. It seemed like another social media account that I would have to check or contribute to, and I’m on my phone enough using Twitter and Facebook.

However, after seeing my cousins howling in laughter at the face-swap filter at our family BBQ, I decided I wanted to have fun with it also and made the account. It took me a little bit to figure out how to use filters and how to get to certain screens on the app, but I think I understand the basic gist now.

If you want to follow me, my username on Snapchat is heatherpls. I can’t promise that I’ll post much, look at your stories, or even respond to people on there, but maybe I’ll end up using it more over time. Currently, I’m much more active on Twitter and Instagram (@Heather_PLS)!

Do you use Snapchat? What do you like about it? Let me know in the comments! You could even send me (heatherpls) a message on Snapchat and eventually I’d probably see it, haha.

Popping My Twitter #Cherry

Pac-Man CherryAfter years of laughing in my head at my own jokes, I finally figured out that I should probably have a Twitter. I use Facebook and Instagram, but my thoughts have always been more interesting than my Instagram pictures have been beautiful. I actually signed up a while ago, took a quick look, followed a million celebrities (because Twitter made me when I signed up!), and thought, oh my God, this is so confusing. And I gave up. But then I started this blog, and I was like, wait a second, that thought that I just had is totally funny and post-worthy, but ain’t nobody got time for a one-line blog post. Now I have a Twitter, @Heather_PLS, and it’s scrolling along the sidebar of my blog. Ta da! Thank you to Macho and Ben for telling me what to do with it.

In other news, tonight we will be continuing a NiM Explosive Conflict (EC) run from late last night. Killmenow.
