I’ve added a new way for you to keep up with what’s happening around here at Homeless On Wheels. If you look over there to the right, on the sidebar, you’ll see a Twitter button, right below email and RSS. Or you can just click here: Follow Me On Twitter.
Notification and Communication
Following me on Twitter will let you be notified of any new posts. It will be great if you want to keep up with posts here, but email notifications or RSS feed aren’t your cup of tea. Even if you already subscribe to email or RSS, my Twitter feed will supplement with extras you won’t see here on the blog – occasional tidbits or links that aren’t worth a whole blog post, but are still worth sharing. It will also be one more way you can contact me, in addition to email and blog comments.
Social Media Butterfly – NOT
I know I’ve probably said before that I’m not a big fan of social media, especially Facebook and similar sites. That still stands — don’t expect me to see me on Facebook any time soon, if ever. Twitter, on the other hand, seems to fit in perfectly with a blog, mostly as an additional announcement and communication channel. It will also allow me to put to use my otherwise neglected personal Twitter account, which I have repurposed for use here with the blog.
Comments Are Open
How do you use social media? Do you find that Twitter is a good companion for blogging? Is it a useful notification tool, or not worth the trouble? Tell me your thoughts as either a blogger or a reader.
