Are You Down with Tweeting?!?!


"All the little birdies on Jay Bird St., love to here the Robins go TWEET TWEET TWEET!"

I used to believe I was mainly addicted to Facebook. Unfortunately I was then introduced to a lovely little website called Twitter. I thought, "Hey, I'll just try this out. I DOUBT it will be as habit forming as Facebook!" WRONG!

Here I sit, months later, now realizing that Twitter has become my marketing tool. That's right kids, I have been attempting to market.....myself. GASP! What? You think I'm a dirty girl... (Suddenly picturing the new Boost Mobile Commercial in my head...EWE) No, I'm not marketing myself, as in my body...but myself, as in my writing, my blogs, my personality. I'm trying to make a name for me! In the process I have begun networking with agents and other writers. I find it to be an excellent networking tool.

Sure Facebook is fun and quirky, but for networking....I'm sticking with Twitter. It's the perfect way to promote my blog and connect with other writers and agents. Go ahead...call me a Twit, I won't be offended.

Do you Tweet? Let me know your opinions! Or better yet, become a follower. (AFTER you become a follower of my Blog of course!)

I love to follow writers, agents, editors, but I've yet to join. I guess I've underestimated the value of what it could do as far as marketing.

Well twitter was the reason I found out about this...

I think I might just give it a shot. It was a happy day to be a Twit :D

LOL I'm not even going to start twitter! Blogging takes up so much time already.

Okay, now you have to elaborate on this one, because so far, I just don't get Twitter. I reluctantly signed up the other day, and still, I don't get the appeal. Maybe I don't get how it works. Am I a twit who doesn't know how to tweet?

I love Twitter. At first I found it to be boring and redundant. Then I found some fellow twits that kept me entertained. Then I started networking with other agents and writers and now I'm having a blast. Not only is it great for building a name for myself, but it is nice to chat it up with other people in my industry. Keep in mind I've been Tweeting since November, and am just recently finding it useful. Just like a blog, it takes time :)

I used to love Facebook, but now I am a total Twitter addict! A lot of great info comes through the pipe-line that I am able to use on my blog, The Work at Home Woman. It's also been a great way to network; where as Facebook is more networking with family & friends. I would love to connect with you on Twitter: http://twitter.com/Holly_Hanna Great blog!
