Not too long ago, I finally joined Twitter. (You can find me here!) I'm really liking it and am trying to jump in with both feet, but am feeling so behind. I thought that to help me get more up to speed, I'd dedicate Saturdays to the subject of Twitter. Just for a little while.
Don't worry...if you're not on Twitter, these "twitterday" posts will still be fun for you. I promise!
When I share things on Twitter, I don't want them to just be personal bits of my day. I want to share things that are fun and useful too, so I feel that it's important for me to be intentional about my tweets.
Yesterday, I realized how many times I think about something to tweet, but at the wrong time. Or I'll think of 6 things at once, but forget them when I go to spread them out. Since I don't have a smartphone, my first step in fixing this was to make a little tweet cheat strip.
This is a sentence strip, the kind used in schools. You can find it at teachers' stores and even at the dollar store. I folded it up and can keep it with me to write down the important ideas for tweeting.
I've this with my blog when I'm needing to gather ideas, or if I'm not quite in the swing of things. Plus, I still like a bit of analog, and writing things down on real paper is comforting to me.
Do you have any ideas or tips for keeping track of upcoming tweets (or blog posts, etc.)?
