Hey guys! Welcome back. I’ve been using Facebook for many years. While it is great and very useful for many things, growing my blog wasn’t one of those. I have a Facebook page for my blog and I keep it updated regularly, but it just doesn’t get much attention.
Up until a few months ago I didn’t really use Twitter. I didn’t understand it or what it was. I thought it was just like Facebook with a limit on the length of your post. I had a Twitter but never really used it. But then I created one for my blog and I finally understood.
Facebook and Twitter are very different. On Facebook it is recommended that you add only people that you know personally. While almost no one ever really does this, it’s true that most people on your friends list are people that you personally know. Twitter is the opposite. On Twitter you follow people who have similar interests. So if you tweet something someone likes they follow you.
Your blog will grow so much in a short amount of time if you start using Twitter. If you are blogging about things that interest you and share them to Twitter, people who are also interested are likely going to check out your blog. Your friends and family on Facebook may not always check it out.
Facebook is still a great platform and I recommend using it. But I have found that Twitter has expanded my outreach so much more. The people who follow me on Twitter share my interests and they are more likely to read my blog. This is just my opinion, but if you are not already utilizing Twitter I highly recommend it.
Thank you so much for reading. Please be sure to like this. Comment below what you think and if you are using Twitter if you would recommend it as well. Don’t forget to follow before you leave if you are not already and I hope to see you next time!
