Chirp, Chirp, Tweet, Tweet – No Job for Mom is on Twitter

Well, I finally took the plunge. I joined Twitter (twitter.com/nojobformom). Don’t expect too much initially. I’m still peddling with my training wheels on. As a matter of fact, I’m not even using my own pedal strength. I’m coasting along and reading other tweets.

Not being one to tweet just for the tweet of it, I’ll coast along until I get a better feel for what Twitter is about and how to use it without reciting mundane boring happenings in my life.

Thanks Jessie for the list of interesting individuals to follow. I’ll spend a little time following them. Once I feel a bit more comfortable, I’ll start to chirp, or tweet as they say.

Anyone else who is on the fence and undecided as to whether or not they should sign up for Twitter, here’s a link that one of my readers (thanks Alyssa) shared with me. It might help you in your decision: Using Twitter for Business

    Well Jessie, to be honest with you, I just spent a few hours this morning playing around with my Twitter page and trying to understand how to use it.

    I guess it’s time well invested. Usually I spend my early morning hours writing because that’s when I’m most productive. However this morning, between the changes at eHow and Twitter, I didn’t get anything done. I’m sort of like a kid with a new toy.

    I don’t want to overwhelm myself so I’m moving along slowly. You’re a fountain of information. Thanks again! BTW, I just added you to my follow list.

    Thanks for the thanks, Felicia. I am Twitter stalking you as we speak. Haha. I am following you as covewriter and look forward to your tweets. Remember also that you can use your affiliate links (such as for Maria’s ebook) and earn. I have two sales already from Twitter. I also got two writing jobs yesterday from Twitter. So, definitely worth your time. Be sure to use @grader to search or twellow and find likeminded or industry friends. It is a great newtworking opportunity.

    Thanks, and thanks again. You have given me a very high compliment. I must admit that, since reading your blog, I have become quite the big fan. I wrote an eHow article some time ago of the best writing sources (http://www.ehow.com/how_4543903_use-good-online-resources-writing.html) and included your blog.

    Definitely time well invested. I understand. I bought Julie Hood’s Organized Writer and spent 7 to 9 am reading and organizing. I write best earlier in the morning, in the middle of the afternoon, and late at night when it is practically morning.

    And the eHow changes are HUGE! I blogged (a bit) on that today.

    My latest project that isn’t writing is switching my blogger blog to wordpress, which I have been strongly recommended to do. I won’t pay for it right now but have done quite a bit of research on the topic because I will demand a smooth transition.

    As far as the paid writing sites ebook I was writing, I am writing some small reports and selling them on Lulu. They are the same reports to be part of my incentives to buy for the ebook, but I want to gauge some readership and have some possible “presells”. I am anticipating the book being done around the beginning of the year. I don’t know how crazy December will be but I am going be revamping my career anyway.

    Stay productive, even if sometimes it is indirectly productive activities.

    Jessie
