I set up a Twitter account months ago, followed about a dozen people/organizations and rarely tweeted. For about a month or so I was reading all the tweets, logging in multiple times a day via my phone while at work and home. After some time, a day would go by, then a couple, and next thing I knew, a whole week had gone by without checking Twitter. I decided to get rid of it.
However, after reading a lot of the Top Ten Tuesday memes from this week (Top Ten Tips for New Book Bloggers), I realized that using other social media outlets is a great way to get my blog out there and reach a larger number of people. And since I originally started my blog to extol the virtues of reading, shouldn’t I try to reach a larger audience?
Having said that, I started a new Twitter account that I’m going to use exclusively for book related stuff. My name on Twitter is @enchantdbybooks. Follow me! 🙂
