Social Media

As The Velo Hobo has just turned three, spoiled brat that she is, I’ve decided to connect her to, what tech savvy people call, “Social Media”.  What does this mean to you, my loyal demented reader, and to the public at large?  Not much; only that there are now two additional ways to stalk The Velo Hobo.

A handful of you are already Velo Hobo Twitter-heads, and I appreciate each and every one of you.  For those who’d like to join the fun, hit one of the Twitter links in the side bar.

The Velo Hobo now has a Facebook page and at the time of this writing, not one single friend.  Before this blog hurls itself off a cliff, would someone please like it?

So why all this for a bike-blog with no real redeeming value?  To feed my writing addiction and to cleanup the blog a bit.  I’ll use Twitter to point to things, news items, other bloggers posts, and to post an occasional Twitpic.  The Velo Hobo Facebook page (again, see the side-bar) will be for you dear reader, to splatter the wall with whatever nonsensical bicycle blathering you feel moved to post.  Feel free to promote your own blog, go off topic, rant, whatever.  Just please, keep it civil and PG-13.  I embarrass easily.

Thanks for your support in these troubling times, Jack

    Podium! Um . . . no . . . actually, I’m just the first person to like your FB page.

    Yoohoo! I have a friend. There has to be a way to make money off this kind of popularity. Thanks Mark.

      I think they call making money off of friendship “the oldest profession in the world,” but I could be wrong. 😉

    I have taken the second place on the LIKE podium, ready to take over first in case any future scandal happens to unseat the current first place holder.

      I swear, it was the beef! I’ve never doped for one of these events in my life.

        You’d think American beef would be faster runners.

    Wow 2 friends in 2 minutes. I feel like a prom queen. Thanks John.

    I want to be your friend even if it’s 3rd place but I can’t find you on FB. Are you hiding? Are you doping again? Maybe I’m doping and that’s why I can’t find you…

      Hmm. I think the best way is too hit the link on the side bar. I’m probably too obscure to find otherwise. We may need to consult an IT guy. Know any? (sorry had to say it).
