How to Use Twitter to Grow Your Blog

I really enjoy twitter. I have several accounts that I run and have learned quite a bit over the years!

Learning the ropes has taken lots of time, but once you get the hang of it, it’s such a great place to find encouragement AND to share your blog!

The first thing you need to know about Twitter…

It’s not about the followers. I mean yes, followers are important, but it’s also about Impressions that you receive on your tweets. For example, if you tweet about breakfast that morning without a hashtag, chances are a few of your followers will see it and respond. On the other hand, if you tweet about your breakfast with the hashtag #foodies on it then hundreds and even thousands of people can see your post!

It really is that simple.

The second thing you need to know about Twitter…

It is a bloggers paradise! It’s the perfect place to meet new bloggers, share your links and get blog traffic! I get hits EVERY single time I share a link. I try to share a link to my blog or YouTube channel at least once a day. Start your tweet out with a simple recap on what your post is about, include a link to your blog and be sure to end your tweet with a hashtag or two. Also, if your blog link is too long, you can always shorten it using Bitly!

And for kicks, here’s a day by day list of hashtags to help you get noticed on Twitter:

Monday: #MondayMorning

Tuesday: #TuesdayThoughts

Wednesday: #HappyHumpDay

Thursday: #ThursdayMotivation

Friday: #FRIYAY #TGIF

Saturday & Sunday: #WeekendVibes #goals
