4 Reasons Why Twitter Is Very Very Useful for Your Blog
Oh, Twitter. I adore you so much, for so many different reasons. I created a bookish Twitter account almost a year ago, I think, and it has helped me so much- ESPECIALLY with my blog.
Twitter is just one of many social medias you can have for your blog, but I think it is the most beneficial.
Notice how I avoided saying Twitter is necessary. It’s not. It IS useful, and I’d recommend you get a Twitter, or at least create one so you can save the name just in case you might want to use it in the future.
Why exactly is Twitter the best thing ever?
Let’s have a list.
1. You can meet so many amazing friends.
Okay, this deserves to be number one. I’ve met almost all, if not all, of my blogging friends not through their blogs, but through Twitter. And these people are so close to me now, it’s crazy that we might not have met otherwise. I have plans to meet these people IN REAL LIFE, and I can’t wait. Bloggers on Twitter are the sweetest, and will welcome new bloggers with lots of love.
2. It’s a great way to promote your blog.
I receive most of my blog traffic through Twitter! You can add links to your posts, and people will click on them and share them by retweeting for you. It’s a perfect way to spread the word about your blog.
Twitter is how I gain followers and publicity for my blog. I don’t know HOW I could have achieved the followers I have now without Twitter.
3. You can interact with authors and publishers.
I always flail whenever an author or publisher follows me back on Twitter, or if we just have a conversation! These people are my idols, and the fact that I get to talk to them on a daily basis is just incredible. And this could help you with getting your blog noticed or forming connections with publishers.
4. It opens your eyes to so many different things.
Seriously, I’ve learned so much from Twitter. Since it’s a collision of all different people from all over the world, you hear about issues in anything you can imagine. I’ve read-and eventually contributed- to countless amazing discussions. This just helps you become a better person, and could help you become more educated on topics you might talk about on your blog.
Yes, Twitter is amazing. It can quickly get addicting, and I probably spend too much time on there instead of doing important things… oops. But I swear, it’s helped my blog in so many ways.
Do you have a Twitter? Do you think it has been useful for your blog?
