The Little Birdie Gets Around

Two posts ago, I reported how I had set up a fanpage on Facebook. Thanks to those who have responded by visiting and clicking Like. You give me hope that this effort is not a waste of my time.

Now, in conjunction with that, I have also set up an account on Twitter. I do not understand the point behind Twitter, but I do hope it will be a valuable marketing tool in the future. So if you Tweet, post your account username here and I will be happy to follow you, and please return the favor. As of this morning, I have exactly one follower, which is a positive beginning, I suppose. Gotta start somewhere, right? :)

You'll find me here:

Last but not least, I must admit I have no idea what I'm doing. I think I'll be able to figure most of it out, but I'm still flabbergasted about things like those "#" tags that follow some tweets but not others. So any tips for comprehension and productive use of this thing will be most welcome.

I found Twitter to be useless at first, but I've grown more accustomed to using it as a great way to keep up with fellow writers and build a following. The #'s are cool because you can follow updates by various folks on related topics such as: #writers or #amwriting or #write1sub1, etc.

Ah, ha! Thanks. I'll get the hang of things soon. My brain is racing to keep up with all this techie stuff. But I'm determined to be a pro at it in no time, I hope.

Hi -

Thanks for visiting my blog and becoming a Follower!

I just signed up for Twitter with the help of my blogging friend, Jill Kemerer. She's doing a couple of posts on how to use it. You can find her on my blogroll. I think the next installment will be tomorrow or Friday - not sure.

Susan :)
