Does Tweeting Help Your Blog? Follow Party!

This article will not give a definitive answer.  Instead, it’s a platform for discussion.

I opened a twitter account a few months ago.  I was urged on by Erika at from Shopping to Saving and Lil Desiqua from Faster Than Forever.  I’m so glad they convinced me.

But it’s not because I’m seeing a huge rise in traffic.  In fact, a larger percentage of my traffic came from twitter before I joined.  I attribute this not to a failure in my tweeting abilities (though they could no doubt be improved,) but because the relationships I’ve built with other bloggers has been strengthened and therefore more of my referral links are coming from my friends.

And that’s what twitter’s done for me.  It’s allowed me to strengthen relationships.  And build new ones.  There’s tons of blogs out there that I visit only because they’ve followed me or they’ve been mentioned by someone I follow.

In the spirit of building relationships, let’s have a follow party!  Link up to your twitter account here.  When you do, make sure to follow the others on the list.

    That is a great idea! I have the same approach you do with Twitter, not sure it brought a lot of traffic but it certainly helped me engage with other bloggers. Keep up the good work!

    well… I’m kind of weird because I don’t really want to advertise my Blog. I dont’ really have a goal for it beyond being an outlet and meeting people as I go. But because I don’t really want EVERYONE I know to read it, I don’t use it on Twitter or anything else because… I just don’t want it out there. So no, twitter has not helped my blog besides connecting with people who I’ve already had a relationship with.

    Timely topic for me, FF. But I was hoping for the ‘definitive answer.’ 🙂

    I’m not on twitter and have no real interest. Maybe I just don’t know what I’m missing.

    When I return from Ecuador, I’ll have to give it a closer look.

      There’s only really two reasons to do it from my perspective.

      1.) You enjoy social networking.
      2.) You are trying to build your blog viewership for monetary or other reasons.

      From our past conversations, I’d say there’s no real benefit for you unless things have changed. But if you ever do get an account, you have an automatic follower in me!
