Am I the only one who gets this like 3 out of 4 times I try to do something on twitter?
Hey folks! I was thinking it would be fun to perform a little experiment.
I’ve been doing this blog thing for a couple of years now, and I think I learned a little bit about how traffic works. I know that all I have to do is mention specific political figures or religious leaders, and my blog traffic will go through the roof, but it’s not from people who care about what I’m writing, they just either want to tell me I’m right or wrong for liking a guy, or not liking a guy.
I also found that I can mention things that are hot in the news, and all the little news spiders will find my blog and make it look like my traffic is doing really good.
But when I write about real things, or just everyday life, I don’t see much traffic.
So here’s the experiment:
I want to know about the remaining 60-or-so people who look at this page on a regular basis. And I want to get those people, specifically, on the blogroll, so that it serves the purpose of a fun social network, instead of a list of awesome ministries and resources, which is about all it is now.
So if that’s you, please leave a comment and let me know, and if you have a blog or a website, I want to link to it, so let me know and I’ll add you to the blogroll.
Also, if you use Twitter, let me know so I can ‘follow’ you. (If you don’t know what Twitter is, read this post — and don’t think it’s only for technology geeks!) When we get a little bit of a community built up, I’ll put an RSS feed with everybody’s updates on the side of this page! And if you don’t use Twitter, then you need to because it’s fun and seriously addictive.
Check this out. Even though he’s working his tail off and sleeping like 4 hours a night, Barack Obama is following me on twitter! Me! And I’m not even sure whether I’m going to vote for him!
I wonder how often he checks my status…
And I wonder how he makes time, since, according to his page, he’s following about 80,000 other people.
Man, talk about a multi-tasker!
So, apparently all the cool people in the world ‘tweet’ on Twitter. I saw this video on RagamuffinSoul, and I figured I’d make an account and give it a test drive, but apparently it’s not really much fun unless all your friends ‘tweet’ too.
