I’ve fallen hard for Twitter. I’m on it constantly and can’t wait to get my new phone so I can tweet all the time from anywhere. I don’t consider myself a microblogger, at least I didn’t set out to be. I’m a mommy blogger(aren’t I?). So shouldn’t I spend more time visiting other mom blogs & updating my own little piece of the web instead of tweeting?
I follow almost all of my daily blog reads on Twitter so I often forget to check out what they’re posting. I even find new and interesting people to follow who’s blogs I barely visit. I’ll visit once to learn more about them and see if they’re someone worth following but then I forget to go back. I feel like I’m following them throughout their day so I neglect to give them any blog love.
I can’t figure out which is more valuable to someone I’m following – Twitter love or blog love? Sheesh, I’m not even sure which is more important to me! Can I be both a microblogger and a blogger? I’ve gotten to the point where I’ve posted more tweets than posts and I’m starting to wonder how to find the balance between the two.
With the new year quickly approaching, I need to figure out a way to better manage my time and prioritize my goals. Interesting because I don’t think Twitter ever started out as a goal of any sort. It was meant to be just a fun way to connect and build community.
I’m so confused! Maybe you can share some wisdom to help me plan for 2009-
- Which is more valuable – twitter love or blog love?
- Can you be a successful blogger and microblogger?
- How do you balance both?
