To Tweet or Not to Tweet?

I find myself behind the times. I was slow to adopt Facebook. This is my first Blog. I don’t own a smart-phone (I just recently got my first blackberry for work, and it is the old kind – no touch screen) and I don’t even have a GPS in my car. I’m not sure what has happened here.  Back in the 80’s I was on the cutting edge!

I was posting to online bulletin boards before anyone had ever heard of the internet.  I was learning word processing and spreadsheets before Windows. In fact, when Windows came out, I was right on that bandwagon!  So, what happened? Somewhere between then and now, technology has passed me by and I’m just now trying to figure out how to catch up.

So, now when I’m trying to figure out how to get the word out about my upcoming e-book (due out any minute now!), I’m wondering about this tweeting stuff.

I don’t follow anyone and no one follows me. I don’t even have an account. But, I know how popular this service is and I think I’m going to have to eventually break down and do it. 

What do you all think?  To tweet or not to tweet?!?!

  1. Absolutely tweet. A great way to get traffic to your blog and ebooks. I’ve seen an uptick in sales in my first week of tweeting and I’m meeting some very cool people. I’d be happy to be your first follower. You have to start somewhere.

    Tweeting is the thing to do nowadays. I dont follow anyone, not even B’s school. But It is certainly something you should do. I would check out every means available to get the word out there. If it doesnt work out, whether it’s tweeting, fb or other way of marketing your books, then drop it.
