now lookahere, y’all: i’ve decided to shape my response to each #reverb10 daily prompt into a tip, a suggestion you might find useful in juicing every single succulent drop out of this month-long experience. some of the tips are things i learned over the past year; some are answers to questions reverbers have asked me privately; some are things i pull out of thin air.

at the end of each day (or roughly thereabouts), the tip will be folded into the marrow. and hey, if a tip sparks another idea, i’d sure appreciate it if you’d drop me a note in the comments section so i can sprinkle it out to others. and do some sprinkling of your own: point others to the marrow in case there’s something here they can use.

now let’s get on with it cause my wand’s a wastin’ . . .

today’s prompt: Let Go. What (or whom) did you let go of this year? Why? (by @finslippy)

today’s tip: you will be let go. in twitter terms, you will be unfollowed – it’s gonna’ happen, you can write it down – but don’t take it personally. don’t you pull the shades, turn off the phone, and take to your bed. you haven’t been dumped out on the side of the road by the (self-proclaimed) cool girls in the convertible. shoot no. you’ve just been unfollowed, and sometimes the tweep doesn’t even know about it cause sometimes the glitching gremlins do it without warning and without permission.

what to do? well, you can ignore it and continue to follow them. or you can send them a note asking “what’d i do?” (or maybe “what were you thinking?”; “have you lost your mind?”; or “what the heck?”, depending on your mood) or you can mash the unfollow button and let them go, too. i guess you could even use it as an excuse to lay out of work a day or two (and for the record: no, i will not sign your excuse), but listen up cause i’m gonna’ tell you what any self-respecting fairy godmother worth her fairy dust would tell you: they’re just jealous.
