I just discovered Twitter,
It’s a great way of getting into the habit of writing snippets. Snippets are all you can write, you”re allowed a maximum of 140 characters, yes that’s characters, not words. Quite a discipline.
I love seeing what people are posting. It’s sparked ideas for blog posts and articles, and by following links to see who people are, I’ve found some great websites.
So if you want some ideas for articles or you know you need to build your presence on the internet but don’t want to go the the trouble of writing regular blog posts, go and take a look at Twitter.
If you’ve been struggling to get into the habit of writing articles this could be a key to get you into the habit of article writing.
How can Twitter help you to write articles?
Twitter is a relativlely new micro-blogging site. You get 140 characters to answer the question, “what are you doing now?” You can do that, you’re a writer 🙂
Take a look in the side bar and you’ll see my recent postings on Twitter. I’m planning to use it to keep me on track. If my followers get to see what I’m doing, you can guarantee that I’ll do what I plan barring accidents and emergencies – everyone can see if I’m goofing off!
It’s a great way to stop a few times a day to ask yourself if you’re being productive and actually doing what you set out to do – like writing articles! You can put in links to your website or blog and tell the world about your work in progress or your latest product or teleseminar.
Check it out. It’s a great starting point for social networking and you might even write those articles you’ve been planning to write but putting off.
So come and join me on Twitter and see if it’s what you need to keep you on track with your writing. It got me writing this blog post.
Join Twitter (just follow the link in the sidebar) and if you follow me, I’ll follow you.
It’s the purple box that starts, what am I doing…? Get your name while it’s still available and let’s help each other to write more articles.
To Your writing success,
