Remember that post way back called “Layout and Twitter”? Actually it wasn’t that far back, only 2 posts or so. I was discussing how I will have to change the blog layout to match my goals for this blog more, and then I completely forgot about the Twitter part.
How could I forget?
…Especially when it was right in the post title? Yup, I promise you I am NOT a bimbo. THe pretty colours in the colour swatches just got to me I guess.
Anyways, I was wondering what your opinion of bloggers who use Twitter is. You see, I follow many successful blogs that utilize Twitter, but for the most part they are much more active on Twitter than they are on their blogs. I can understand the reasons and I definitely do not want to criticize them. Rather than make a blog everyday, they use Twitter to keep their readers in the loop. Then they spend more time writing quality blog posts instead of posting small quick ones. Many of them use a longer weekly blog post to go through what has happened lately in the lifestyle department, and then of course they make blog posts about other things every few days or so.
I was wondering how you felt about this as maybe becoming a direction for this blog.
I am a full supporter of Project 365, but I feel that maybe this isn’t the type of blog for it. I think blogs that suit Project 365 are those that are photobased (photography) maybe motivational (quote of the day), etc. Not necessarily those where the author needs to write extensive posts. I’m not saying that these authors are lazy or anything, I’m saying that their method and medium of blogging is different than the one I need to use for this blog.
I can’t post to you every day about my weight or body sizes… these are things that change gradually. And because I am no fitness guru, I can’t give you a post each day about a new exercise to try. Most of what I plan to start posting in this blog will involve research first… simply put it isn’t something that I can post in 15 minutes or even an hour each day.
I suppose for now I will say that I feel I am forced to leave Project 365 although I am still an avid supporter. This blog just really isn’t the right type of blog to do it in, unless maybe I was jobless. I still do want to interact with my readers on a regular basis though, so I was thinking that perhaps Twitter could be a new method of doing that. What do you think? Would you follow me and this blog on Twitter?
My friends have mixed feelings about Twitter, some swear by it and some think it’s just another example of how to become a socially defunct nerd. But they don’t matter since they don’t read this blog haha. So what do you think?
