#usfaSN

Summer Nationals is nearly upon us, and given my past lack of success at liveblogging national tournaments, I’ve decided to try something a bit different this year.

Instead of the single daily posts I’ve done before (often written days later), I’m going to try short frequent comments on Twitter. I’ll be using the hashtag “#usfaSN” to mark my SN tweets, and if you’d like to follow my Twitter feed, all you need to do is click on the “Follow” button in the righthand column. (If you’re not familiar with Twitter, a hashtag is just a text string that can be used to search for tweets on a particular topic.)

I should think I’ll be able to handle 140-character comments every so often throughout even the chaotic SN days. (But then, I’m a congenital optimist.)

The Muse visits while you are writing, not before.
