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.
Hi, Cindi - a little delayed here, but better late than never!
I just checked out your post about Twitter and have bookmarked it; there is so much to learn, and new social 'stuff' seems to be popping up like weeds. I'll be glad when I feel like we (my blogging partner) know what we're doing in SOMEthing!!
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!
