To Tweet or Not To Tweet

Up until a few years ago, we all thought "tweets" were something that came out of the mouth of tiny little birds on the pages of storybooks.

Then Twitter became a part of our vernacular and everyone is constantly updating their "followers" on the ins and outs of their lives via tweets.

I have hesitated jumping on the Twitter bandwagon. I am already hanging on for dear life to the blogging bandwagon, the Facebook bandwagon and the Internet bandwagon. I questioned if I had room in my life to listen and digest thousands of peoples updates on what they consumed for dinner last night.

Recently someone brought to my attention that Twitter is more than a mode for people to share hilarious links or discuss the toileting habits of their toddler. It is not limited to social networking, but extends its little bird arms into the professional world as well.

I like the professional world...especially when promoting myself and my work in the professional I established my own Twitter account. If you are on Twitter, you can follow me at savethephillips.

I pledge to only tweet professional tweets, such as links to a variety of my writings.

Unless I have a really funny potty story about my children...

I have to say at first I thought Twitter was a waste of time, but once I figured out how to use it wisely, my blog stats really increased.
