If you catch Luke Bryan, you have to throw him back. It's the rules.

I'm a big reader. I love all different kinds of books, and while I haven't made it to '50 Shades Of Grey' I will read just about anything else, including cereal boxes.Seriously, I read so much growing up, that I failed Junior English because I was in the back of the class reading the books to come for Senior year. Lavar Burton's Reading Rainbow was a show I loved watching. The show made me feel good about my big imagination, and I didn't feel like such a nerd about reading so much.
Well Lavar Burton is bringing it back via a Kickstarter Campaign. When you think about all the kids who aren't reading, to me this could be a really important television program for years to come. It's sad that it has to be funded through Kickstarter instead of a network just picking it up, but hey, at least someone is doing something. It shows that people know it's important. Because on day one, they already flew past the $1,000,000 goal.

Full disclosure, I'm not big on sweets. But if there is any kind of sweets I love it's Oreo's and Reese's Peanut Butter Cups. I now don't have to worry about buying them seperately and putting them together. Because I DEFINITELY wasn't doing that up until today.

If you’re new to twitter, or still thinking about joining, well, don’t be afraid I’m here to help! One of the most common complaints I get from people when I tell them about twitter, because apparently I’m on the marketing team for them, is I don’t know who I would follow! After realizing I’d already forgotten how I found some of the people I follow, I figured I would come up with a definitive list for people to follow in Lubbock on twitter. First off, I’m obviously not above a little self promotion, so follow me! I do everything from contests to concert announcements to stupid things I think are funny.
If you’re like me and love to see live music, then following venues is always a good choice, like @wildwestlbb Another great follow in the music area of Lubbock is New Slang
They’re funny and they do a good job of throwing in some opinion while still keeping you informed about the Lubbock area music scene. I’m not a weather nerd by any means, but staying informed is part of my job. And whoever it is manning the twitter feed for the National Weather Service for the area does a great job.
I also like to make sure I stay up on news, and KCBD is a great place to start for local news.
And cats, because, well, CATS!
I mean, seriously though, CATS. Ahem, keeping an eye on Tech news is always interesting…
I also follow Whataburger, because I like to eat at Whataburger…
NOT Kliff Kingsbury.
Kate here gets a shout out just because of this tweet…
Natalie Gross from the Lubbock AJ does a great job, she is definitely a must follow. She’s very twitter active and seems nice.
The folks over at Lubbock In The Loop do a great job of giving you an idea of what's going on it town-
I'm pretty sure I'm missing some great accounts to follow here...
Ok, so maybe this wasn’t “definitive” but you can put your twitter handle in the comments here and see if you can get some more followers…
Oh, and don't forget to follow me
