For the first week of our social media conference, I’ve decided to focus on the area where I have the most experience–Twitter. It’s the easiest platform I know of to just dive into and get started.
The final form I’m planning on posting is this: a master page of links, not unlike the one I used for the meet-and-greet. You can contribute a new post, an old post, or someone else’s post. Since it’s only a page of backlinks rather than reblogging, the articles don’t need to be on WordPress and we don’t need permission. We’ll simply work together to find the most relevant info we can and collect it into one place.
You don’t need to have participated in any earlier post, nor do you have to join in with any others. Each section of the conference is completely self-contained.
Nor do you need Twitter experience to participate. In fact, what a complete newbie finds helpful would be extremely valuable info, as would your experiences venturing into tweeting for the first time. And if you’re new and venture into the meet-and-greet, you’ll find built-in contacts who will follow you back.
What should you do if you find two super-helpful links and can’t choose between them? Post them both in the comment section below. 🙂
I’ll close the sign-ups on Wednesday, March 15th, and post the master sheet the following day.
What I’d like here is a quick summary of each article so we don’t duplicate too much. I’ll start.
I’m writing a post on how to use twitter effectively even if you hardly check your feed, as an adjunct to your blogging. We all know that we need to visit other people’s blogs to like and comment. And while you’re there, share their post on Twitter as well. It hardly takes any more time.
What’s the most helpful thing you can contribute about Twitter? Please let us know in the comments.
