Let’s Connect

How many ways are there for us to keep in touch? Probably too many. We’re so busy managing our social media sites that we’re running out of time to actually, you know, talk to each other. Like, in person.

We don’t really need to talk or call each other anymore. Thanks, Mark Zuckerberg!

Just kidding. In all seriousness, I love social media. While I try not to lose myself in it, I like to engage online. Rather than using it as a substitute for human interaction, I think of it as an enhancement. It’s a great way to keep in touch with long-lost contacts and of course, to make new ones.

Want to connect more? Here’s how to find me:

  • Facebook. Click here to like Mad Betty on Facebook. And here to friend me personally. I’m a good Facebook friend because I don’t post the minutia of my life and I stay out of political discussions. Mostly I post stuff like this:

Betty White

Eric Northman

Spike Lee


  • Twitter. This is my fave right now and you can follow me here. Like my Facebook posts, my tweeting frequency is moderate. If stalking is your thing, I use this Twitter account to post my check-ins. Examples of my tweets:
-Just discovered I’ve been walking around with one hoop earring in for a couple hours. Like a pirate.
-Another St. Patrick’s Day spent pining for Philly. Where the “Irish pubs” do not serve queso.
-All cozy and tucked in @acllive. Ready for the Daptone Super Soul Review, you jive turkeys. #sxsw
-Note to reality stars: Don’t eat wings on camera. Just don’t. #TeenMom
  • Google+. I should use this one more and if you add me to your circles, I’ll make a real effort to post.
  • Foursquare. Speaking of stalking, you can friend me here, too. I check in when I remember, which is like 10% of the time.
  • Do you prefer to read you blogs in a feed? I’ve got that, too.
  • Are you on Pinterest? You can follow me here. A sampling of my pins:

  • My Instagram name is verykristin. Look at my cool photos!
  • Want to hire me? Check out my LinkedIn profile and my portfolio.
  • And of course, you can always reach me by email at madbettyblog (at) gmail (dot) com. (Ever wonder why people spell out their email address like that? It’s merely a protection against spammers and evil programs that harvest email addresses.)
