Today’s Blogging 201 assignment is to focus on one social media to grow my blog. I have chosen Twitter. I have had a Twitter account for awhile now and I know it’s been moving along rather slowly. I try to retweet things of interest. I try to remember to tweet but I’ve been really bad about that. It took me 6 months to figure out how to get my Twitter feed working in my sidebar and I’m embarrassed at how easy it actually was.
I don’t get Twitter. I mean, I understand the premise and I know it’s short snippets of information. Maybe that’s where my problem lies. I have to get it all said in how many characters? Are you kidding me? I have yet to write a tweet without having to cut half of it out to get it fit into the allotted character restrictions.
I’ve read some great articles about using Twitter in conjunction with your blog. I’ve just been very resistant to tweeting.
– to tweet or retweet one item daily that is separate from my blog posts (which will also be tweeted)
– to add # to my tweets
– get to know who is following me
If you would like to follow me on Twitter, you can find me at @katcarpita (or check out my feed on the sidebar of my blog)
