Helping Small Blogs Grow: Let's Tweet Together

This is a short post (more like a half post), but, nevertheless, a way for all of us to expand our online social network.

I think it's safe to say that I finally have an "active" Twitter account. It only took years. But I now tweet on a pretty regular basis thanks to some perseverance and UberTwitter. It is actually a lot of fun once you get the hang of it! It has also proven to be a great networking tool. As I said in a past post, Twitter makes me feel like I am connecting more with others, because it is much more interactive than blog commenting. And thank goodness I got over the whole "I'm a dweeb. I'm not in on the cool conversations". If someone doesn't respond to my tweet, no biggie. You get over it, and life moves on. Remember, folks, this is social networking (a.k.a. a website with a funny name), it's not the end of the world.

I have tried to add most of my blog friends that have Twitter accounts, but I suspect I am not following everyone.

So if you are on Twitter, feel free to add me @carlysdreams. Or leave your Twitter name in the comments section for me and others to find you. Everyone that reads this blog has proven to be awesome (not being condescending, you ARE), so let's follow each other!


P.S. In other Twitter-related news, I found this awesome tool called Qwitter through pal, Kim, (a.k.a. Mrs. Lemon and @kim_michelle) that helps you keep track of people who stop following you on Twitter. It is really useful and allows you to be a little spy and keep an eye on spammers and followers who decide to drop your boring ass. I must be boring, because I have been dropped by a number of people. However, I defer to what I said above - it certainly ain't the end of the world!

  3. I swore back in the day that I'd never get a twitter but after blogging for awhile, I gave in. It's an awesome way to talk with other bloggers. I now love it! I'm now following you! <3

  9. I just started using twitter and I'm hoping to increase blog traffic and get more followers. It takes some getting use to. I'm jodibean328. And I'm still working on getting a post to you. Things have been busy and I'm a procrastinator so those 2 things together = no writing!
