Why are You on Twitter?

with one comment

I have read quite a few articles about Twitter lately, and one recurring question is: Why are you on Twitter?

So, Why am I on Twitter?

Scoble.

Not the most exciting answer I know.  But he blogged about it. I joined. End of story.

I was not looking to market anything or gain blog traffic or even chat.

I thought it was potentially a great microblogging tool especially as the number and frequency of my blogs decreased. Twitter was a way to say something online without having to come up with a blog post idea.

Oh well, it feels good to confess. 😉

shiningI’ve decided to start blogging here again. I seem to have a love-hate relationship with this blog. Years ago, when I started it, I was aiming to be a SEO expert, and it turns out now that everyone is an “SEO” expert.

I won’t bother to delete any posts this time around. I wish I had kept some of the old ones from previous blog rebirths. It would be interesting to read what I was thinking at that moment in time. The main reason this blog and some others bit the dust was that my online fire simply fizzled out. But life is cyclical and I’m all fired up. 😉

What will I blog about this time around?

Probably, a lot about Twitter – my latest online obsession.

Friendfeed will enter the mix as I learn to work it.

Or pretty much anything else web-related – blogging, social media, SEO, cool sites, etc.

Good to be back. 🙂

Moving on Up to the Top

leave a comment »

I’ve switched my online approach.

Instead of working from the top down, I have decided to work from the bottom up.

This includes focusing on one blog until the infrastructure is in place.  That  basically means creating and maintaining a viable blogging schedule, compiling sources for blog post, tweaking the template, building links, etc. I have even begun posting to the future, which is great because I don’t have to blog on weekends ,or when my offline work schedule becomes hectic. Yet I can still have posts showing up everyday. 🙂

Giving Up My Celebrity Blog

leave a comment »

Well, I’ve decided to give up my entertainment blog. While I have an opinion on celebrities and movies and whatnot, I just don’t give a hoot about writing about that stuff. Plus, there are already so many really good celebrity blogs out there. It was hard to delineate myself from the rest.

Anyway, from now on, I’ll just be reading them. 😉

Finally Figuring Out Google Referrals

leave a comment »

I’ve finally figured out how to make a little spending cash with Google referrals. Well, at least for Google specific products, e.g. Firefox or Google Pack.

It turns out that a little description or endorsement of the product goes a long way with getting folks interested in the link.

Webmaster Vs. Blogger

leave a comment »

So while I may have narrowed down the number of blogs that I’m working on, now I am beginning to re-thinking my whole approach to my online pursuits. I just don’t think I’m much of a blogger. I may shift back to “webmaster” and drop the “blogger” moniker altogether.
