Ahh, Twitter. A bloggers best friend.
I’ve mentioned a few times how I didn’t have a twitter account attached to my blog until January 2014 -I went a whole year promoting my blog through different methods.
When I discovered the benefits of having a twitter account alongside your blog, I was suddenly opened to a whole new world of bloggers that connect with each other through the social media site.
I discovered blog chats, hash tags and a whole bunch of other things I had never even heard of before!
We’ve had a #socialbloggers chat about social media before, but never specifically Twitter. Therefore I wanted to dedicate one solely to the platform.
I use Twitter for a multiple reasons and use different techniques to drive traffic to my blog. The main ways I use twitter are to:
- Promote blog posts.
- Talk to bloggers.
- Talk to brands.
- Find new blogs.
- Share pictures of my daily life.
- Share random thoughts of my daily life.
- Retweet/share content I enjoy.
- Share tweets and posts by my friends.
I’ll write a separate post about various methods in more detail at some point, I don’t want to make this one too long as there is already tonnes of information in the chat itself.
Speaking of the chat – let’s go, friends!
