Another Wednesday, another lesson. If you read up on Monday, you know what we’re talking about today…
I know, I talked about how big of a problem this is on Monday. Today, I’m talking about making the right kind of connections.
Sometimes, if you’re really popular on Twitter, you get all sorts of things thrown at you while people are tweeting you and wanting to talk to you. Or, if you’re like me, you get ignored most of the time and just kind of do your own thing.
Getting tweeted at too many times a day is a better problem to have, in my opinion. At least people notice you.
If you’re like me, you actually have to make a point to talk to people, or at least retweet or favorite their posts. Make sure the posts are relevant to what you’re wanting to say you’re all about, though. I mean, come on guys. Don’t just go retweeting what someone had for dinner. You’re better than that.
If you retweet for someone, or you talk to them, you’re making connections. But make sure to be mature about it. You do know that starting a fight isn’t mature…right?
A few years ago, I had another Twitter account. Someone tweeted me saying I was a fool if I thought I could make a difference in the world. I really thought about replying and saying that they were the stupid ones. But, I decided to make the mature choice. All I did was block them. I’m so glad I made the choice to do so.
I know it’s tempting to either not be mature when it comes to talking to people. I also know it’s tempting to ignore people and hope they ignore you so you can just continue doing you’re own thing. But neither of those will get your books sold. Think about it.
I guess that about does it. Next time you’re on any social media site, think about the connections you’re making, or should be making. I’ll see you on Friday with a prompt!
