Why is it so hard to come up with a title?


I have decided to try a blog. I have a lot on my mind and someone, maybe that's you, will be interested in my rambling thoughts, ideas, and opinions.  Maybe not, who knows.

I really have another reason.  It has to do with NASA Tweetups.  Since I am not in media and have no real access to a media outlet, I wanted to have a way to share my Tweetup experience. I have attended 2 of these tweetups so far and I'm about to do it again. Sometimes you need more than the 140 characters allowed by Twitter.

Why Twitter? <<< hint this is a link :)

  1. Well, I'm a NASA junkie and Twitter has allowed me access into the NASA world and to experience one in a lifetime opportunities (more on this in another post...this is your hint to subscribe and check back often).
  2. Twitter is easy! If I can do it, you can to.
  3. Twitter is fun. Really! I kid you not. Twitter is fun.
  4. Twitter is anytime, anywhere! Log on, follow, tweet, anytime and anywhere (with a mobile device).
  5. You can have a conversation, express an idea, have an opinion, or just talk in 140 characters or less.
  6. You can and most likely will make friends and expand your community.
  7. And in the spirit of full disclosure I would be remiss if I did not mention that Twitter is a powerful tool for marketing and engaging consumers. But, that's not why I use Twitter, the first 6 points are why I use it.
Now back to NASA Tweetups

I was lucky to be selected for the Sun Earth Day 2011 Tweetup at Goddard Spaceflight Center just outside of Washington DC this coming weekend (March 19th, 2011).  I plan on blogging about this event and hope you can follow me on Twitter at www.twitter.com/adcunningham

I will also be posting (at some point in the future) my Earth Day 2010 and STS-132 Tweetup experiences. I will include pictures, videos, and comments.

Grammar, Spelling, Formating and Content Note

This is simple! I am poor at all of these...you are officially warned. Oh, I forgot, I like to use exclamation points, quotes, and "..." a lot. 

As far as the content you can expect posts about: NASA (naturally), Nascar (I drove a real Nascar car once), Beer (brewing & drinking this fine liquid), Music (usually New Country, I don't like twangy stuff, and 70s-80s rock),  my kids (the crazy things they say and do), and once and a while my opinion of stupid things people say and do.

What you will not find for topics: Politics, religion, or anything else I don't want to discuss.

Well, this is enough for a first blog, I look forward to your comments, suggestions, and constructive criticism.



  1. I only found one spelling error...

  2. Just one? I'm impressed with myself. And I'm not surprised you found it. Thanks.
