Twitter – Tool or Addiction?

I recently signed up at Twitter, so what you say! Most of my experiences on the Internet have been ho-hum for the most part but sometimes I’m entrigued by little things. I put up a Blog some time ago, no marketing no nothing really, I just started writing. I’m currently in between gig’s so to speak and have some time on my hands. I don’t have a business or a plan for that matter but I have been tinkering with the idea. One of the tinkers is registering with Twitter and finding a few people I already know to follow.

One thing leads to another, I get published at Ezinearticles, fine tuned my Blog for low level SEO, posted that I am writing an eBook and visited one interesting website and next thing I knew 30+ people started to follow me on Twitter. Again, so what you say!

Now I have registered with other Social networking tools before and frankly no one came to my Blog unless I personally told them to, putting the link up in various services really didn’t do much good. Until Twitter. Now I realize content matters, who wants to read about my rants on stuff your not interested in, but that’s my point, I write because I like to and I’m not really trying to get traffic. Not on purpose anyway. Having said that, did I mention I was in between gigs? I should try to get traffic and try to earn a living online shouldn’t I? So why am I so hesitant, could it be I just don’t trust Internet Marketer’s telling me how to get rich online? Yep!

Now the tool that has been the most fun to use for me on Twitter is TweetDeck, it takes the pain of having to go to my Twitter homepage to see what’s going on and to post my updates. Well Done! So the problem now is I can’t seem to walk away from Twitter, why? It’s addicting!

Like everything else I’ll get over it because I get bored easily, I’ll find something new to play with and I’ll get fired up and post about it. That’s the best part about Blogging and having your own Blog. Hmmmm, is a Blog a tool or an Addiction, YES!
