So I did some searching and came across an older post by ProBlogger on how to use Twitter with some good info in it. Following his advice, I've come up with this:
My Blogging Objectives for Twitter:
- Drive traffic to my blog (naturally, but somewhat of an issue since I have all of 7 followers as of this posting)
- Use it to network with other bloggers within my niche (those being running, marathon training, dogs, Canicross, CrossFit, Paleo/Primal lifestyle)
- To use it for inspiration for my blog
Now I have to figure out how to use it. I'm following a load of people already and finding more all the time. I've Tweeted and Retweeted by pushing a button, but never typed my own Tweet, replied to a Tweet or put anyone else's @so-and-so or #this-thing yet. I'm almost embarrassed to say I find it a bit intimidating, there are so many pro-looking Tweeters out there!
So there you have it, my introverted self finds these kinds of things intimating!
Any tips from Tweeters out there?
Do you use Twitter? If you do, what for?
