Why Are You Not on Twitter?

I have a Rant…

I subscribe to A LOT of blogs! I read between 150 to 200 posts daily. They come through my email daily and if I miss a day, you can imagine the overload. You may find me liking 3 of your posts on one day because I was unplugged. LOL. But, I love to read your work.

I’m inspired by my fellow bloggers. Most of the time I will like a post even if I don’t comment. For posts that truly touched me at that moment, I will share a tweet about it. However, you would be surprised by the number of blogs that I read that don’t have their own Twitter account but have the Twitter icon at the bottom. Are you serious?

Why are you not on Twitter? You can increase your readership and followers by linking your posts to Twitter and being notified when people tweet your posts. Why would you have the Twitter icon and then not have a Twitter account that shows you that I tweeted your post? You would attract a larger audience.

Trust me. I’ve increased my Twitter followers by 300% in the last year alone. How? By tweeting your posts. Sharing articles of interests. Participating in live tweet events. I’m amazed that some of you don’t know this missing group of untapped social connections you should have connected to your blog.

We all write for different reasons, but truthfully we want someone to read our stuff. To like it. To share it. We hope that we can grow a following where people will find value in our words. That’s the real deal, but you can’t even have a Twitter account? It’s FREE folks!

Even before I started truly blogging consistently I had a Twitter account. I never really tweeted, but now I share so many posts daily that I see the value in my Twitter account. If you are one of these people that don’t have a Twitter account, I am asking that you reconsider and get it and link your blog to the Twitter account. You will see an increase in your followers to your blog and to your Twitter account. Sign up here if you don’t have one: Twitter

Rant over!

    1. Just set up an account and link your posts from your blog to Twitter. If you tweet there is a character limit. But, use this as an opportunity to retweet great reads from other bloggers or articles in general. People will definitely follow you. I’m hoping to gain 1000 followers by the end of the year. I don’t really write new tweets because I don’t have time, but it is a great way to have other bloggers get to know you. Tweet about things that interest you too.

  1. I signed up for Twitter when I started my blog and I love it! I have started reading so many blogs and gained more readers from it as well. Once I signed up I thought, “Why didn’t I do this before?” If you do not have a Twitter account it really is great especially if you are a TGIT viewer. Following along to hashtags for Greys, Scandal and HTGAWM is another reason to sign up!

  2. When I started blogging, I joined Twitter. I readily admit that now it mostly functions to link my posts to it, rather than when I started and tweeted a lot of things to a lot of people. I still tweet to and with others occasionally, but now Twitter is more of a tool than a social media phenomenon like it once was for me.

    1. I know right? It drives me nuts. It’s a great way to share reads that you may not comment on but that people can see. Everything feeds to my personal FB page from Twitter and I’m giving you free advertising. LOL. I spend most of my time just tweeting the posts of others.
