Hi all - I've been blogging since late last year and my site only gets an average of 150 hits per day. I JUST joined Twitter. Do you find Twitter helps to increase your readership? If so, any tricks or tips?
Since joining twitter it has really helped my blog, especially when I do a giveaway. Tweetups that match the topics you blog about are even better. I am involved in 2 which happen weekly: a #clothdiapers chat on mondays and a #babywearing chat on wednesdays. I always gets lots of hits when I post links during those. And I get a lot of similar minded followers that way.
Also, chatting with your followers helps build relationships. It is such a useful networking tool.
Yep, twitter is great! Definitely try to follow people in your niche or just folks that you find interesting. There are a LOT of people out there just to sell things. Don't feel like you have to "follow" them just because they followed you first!
