There was a post that I wrote some time ago where told of my experience with Shakespeare and it culminated in a Shakespearean style piece which I called To Blog Or Not To Blog, That Is The Question? Although my poetry and other creative posts don’t always fare that well I persist with them because I find they push my creativity and I enjoy that immensely. Not only the challenge of coming up with something different from the norm but the immense satisfaction of sitting back and admiring my work after its completion.
Another reason for doing something a little different is because there are already so many posts out there covering this topic I thought it best to be a bit more creative.
To tweet or not to tweet, a question asked by many
Tom, Dick and Harry or even Mary, Kristi and Jenny
They may all be wondering whether to tweet or not
What they should be asking; Is it worth a shot?
Your Twitter rep is important, so keep it in mind
Do not tweet crap for fear of leaving it behind
Only tweet works, that you find are worth the tweet
For then your twitter rep, in time will become elite
What of self promotion, is that not a good excuse
To give a blog a tweet so that you also get some juice?
But that will only work if a great comment you’ll leave
A comment that adds value that readers will receive
Some will tweet to line their pockets with money
But if you do too many, others won’t think you funny
Your tweets must be interesting, that others will enjoy
Just keep in mind it’s a social tool and not a ruddy toy
To put it in a nut shell you should tweet posts but rather than just tweet and run off you should also take the time to leave a great comment, especially if you can leave one that stands out from the rest. Tweeting a great post which you have made better by leaving a great comment will give both you and the blogger exposure.
