I am so behind when it comes to social networking sites. I signed up for twitter but didn't know what to do with it. I need to spend some time reading about it and how to make it work for me. I get some traffic from here and some from the parenting board that I belong to. I have to say though, that there isn't any one place that I can see most of it coming from. Wish I did, then I could target my promos that way!

In the blogging community it is a great way so search for giveaways or for a topic. I have gotten maybe 1/4 of my readers through word of mouth through twitter.
Hope that helps
