I Give A Tweet!

Updated Friday 03/19/2010: Imagine my surprise when I logged on this morning and found so many of you missed this announcement yesterday. Well, due to the huge response, I will extend this offer through today to help spread the word for "tweet thursday". And, since you are already here, take a look at this week's edition of Caption This! contest which ends at midnight, you could be the next winner.

It's Thursday...tweet thursday!.

Huh?

So, here's the deal. Each Thursday I will tweet everyone's most recent post just for leaving a comment...that's it. It's such an easy way to get your blog promoted! Now, if you are not already following me on Twitter, how will you know if I actually tweeted your blog post to my 1700 followers? Simple, follow me on Twitter then you'll receive confirmation of your tweet. Taaa-daaah.

Yeah, I know, another bandwagon to jump on. But, isn't this something we should be doing for each other anyway? It literally takes just a few seconds to post a tweet or retweet a post, I do it all the time.

Would you like to add "tweet thursday!" to your blog? Great, simply copy and paste the button to your blog then link it to your announcement so your readers will know to visit and comment every Thursday to receive their tweet. Suh-weet!

So, leave a comment and get your first tweet today!

  4. I just started following you (I'm @erinlynn76). My last post was nothing fancy, you don't need to tweet it. I just wanted to say hi! When I have time, I do tweet blog posts and links to things...it's just so hard because I can barely keep up w/ my BlogLand stuff, let alone throwing Twitter into the mix! LOL

    Have a great day, TWEETheart!

  5. Chirp. Chirp. Chirp.

    I'm glad they didn't name it Chirper!

    What a nice idea. Thanks for doing this.

  6. Twitter is as Twitter does. Whatever the hell that means it scares me thinking that I may actually volunteer to "tweet" something. It's my homophobia kicking in again.

  7. Heff's not a fan of Shitter...I mean Twitter.

    @ Don - I know, it's always funny when someone says, "Click on my Twitter button".

  18. Great idea. I'm still new to Twittering, (had to perfect all of the other 'ings, first!) Hook a girl up! :)

    ReplyDelete
  19. Well isn't just the tweetest thing you've ever done.

  22. You don't have to tweet me. It's late and my BFF actually wrote my last post.

    I'm Twitter impaired. My account was hacked x2 and I deleted it. I'm trying to work up the energy to start up again.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Um... "post a tweet or retweet a post"... you ever see one of those Gary Larson cartoon where he shows someone talking to their dog and then translates what the dog understands as "blah blah blah blah Spot blah blah blah"? That's me and this quote. I gather you had a good idea but that's all I got here.

  24. I've heard such wonderful things about you from so many awesome bloggers. Stopping by to check things out and what do I find....such an awesome way to pay it forward!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Oh no way, what a great idea! I'm @shootmenowblog and I am following you :)

  26. @ Valdese Blogger - Thank you for stopping by today.

    @ Tracie - That post was well written and funny as hell...Tweet!

    @ Daffy - Awww, that's really nice to hear. I enjoyed reading your blog today.

    ReplyDelete
  27. @ Kablooey - Glad you stopped by, I have seen those cartoons - funny!

  28. I'm so late today. I've been to visit the parents all day. What a great idea this is. Well, you're brilliant then aren't you? I'm in, I have to figure out how to do it as I'm not very Twitter worthy.

    ReplyDelete
  29. This is a freaking great idea, one that makes sense too, instead of two for Thursday or whatever Thursdays are for. I have been on the retweeting kick as of late and noticed you don't have a retweet button in your post. I highly recommend a plugin called Topsy, it makes it so easy for anyone who stops by to at least give you a tweet on your post. Again great idea :-)

    ReplyDelete
  30. I've never done the twitter thing.

    I would so follow you if I did. Yeah, you'd have a stalker for sure...well, another stalker anyway ;-)

  32. You don't have to tweet me. I read about it on Marvin's blog, and wanted to drop by and tell you it is a fantastic idea.

  36. We're always up for a good Twittering!

    We were Twittered a couple of nights ago, and it was.... nothing short of magical.

    Thank you, Screaming Me-Me!

  37. @ Buggys - Oh, yes you are!

    @ Glenn - Thanks so much for the tip, I have added the retweet button. Glad you like my idea, see you next Thursday then.

    @ mac - You really ought to at least give Twitter a try. It's fairly easy and the rewards can be great.

    @ Tammy - Great, I love CCWA and all the membership there - what a great group of bloggers!

    @ Elizabeth - Welcome! I hope you will stop by again real soon.

    @ Rayna - Another "Old Silly" follower! Wonderful to have you here today.

    @ Yvonne - Twitter is a fantastic tool, you really should give it a try.

    @ Creative Chronicler - Thank you, I was over at your place earlier and really enjoyed your blog.

    @ suZen - Of course, I'm on my way!!!

  43. Hello, I read about your blog on Marvin's blog. I don't do Twitter, but would still like to be included in your tweetering. I think it's great.

    Oh, I love the comic artwork you have on the side of your blog. Is that one of your creations? Awesome.
