Do you prefer to read the blog, grab the RSS feed of the blog, or follow me on Twitter?
And what do you think I ought to be writing on my blog, versus on twitter?
As I mentioned last month, I’ve been ‘tweeting’ (and even getting a bit of recognition for it!). Thus far Twitter gets a feed of my blog posts, so it’s a decent way to keep up on the deals and advice I offer here. And I post some minor deals and thoughts that don’t seem to ‘rise to the level’ of a blog post. For example I just tweeted a US Airways magazine sweepstakes for Bose Quiet Comfort 15 headphones. If it was a free set for everyone who signs up, I’d have blogged it, but…
Since I’m just figuring out the role that various parts of social media play, any thoughts are welcome.
Clearly Twitter forces you into a short-form, with 140 characters max, so referencing longer text (such as posts here) is useful. It tends towards the glib, but sometimes communication could use real streamlining. I haven’t figured out how to manage making sure I see all the tweets I want to yet, from all the people I want to, while avoiding the clutter.
Follow me if you wish, and your feedback appreciated.
