This is my response to the next question in my private conversation with my bud Kelly McCausey (click here if you are new).
My next question for you is this: What do you think of Twitter? And why don’t I see more of you there?
I really enjoyed reading your list of Pet Peeves for your Online Talk Radio Show. I agree on all of those. They would bug me, as well. As for not promoting the interview, that is just bad manners. But, I do find that a lot — that lack of reciprocity. Now, when I promote something that John Reese comes out with, I don't expect him to reciprocate — or if I promote something like GoDaddy as an affiliate, but in networking circles, I don't hear “What can I do for YOU?” as much as I'd like after doing something for someone else. Or even a “Thanks.” Hmm… I guess I feel a blog vent coming on about this one. lol.
However, that wasn't YOUR question to me. Yours was Twitter. I am on Twitter, as you know – Nicole Dean on Twitter. I actually do enjoy it, although I find my time on Twitter gets spent quickly. All of a sudden it's time for me to get the kids and I haven't gotten through my To-Do list at all. Kind of like me with forums — so I have to limit that time a bit. The other reason I haven't been Twittering is that I haven't been able to get the site to load in weeks. I click on it in my browser and it sits on loading … and loading… and loading… but that must just be me? Maybe it's a sign. Or maybe I need to try it in a new browser. lol.
I still get traffic from Twitter and I do like stopping by to say ‘Hey I just blogged about…' but I can't chat on there too much or I'll end up chatting with my wonderful friends and making new ones. (Dreadful, I know.) Maybe I just need a good lesson in moderation? 😉
So, that's my Twitter Truth.
ok. So, back to my question for you… going back to my beef earlier, what do you consider when networking with other work at home moms on a long-term basis. For instance, what makes you loyal to one person and not another? (Other than quality, of course.)
Chat soon, mi amiga!
