Last week, I found two new blogs to follow: Problogger and Writing Thoughts.
I wouldn't have found these blogs were it not for Twitter.
Here are the actual series of connections that led me to these blogs:
- I follow Connie Reece on Twitter. She is founder of Every Dot Connects, a social media consortium that provides new media services. On June 2, she sent a tweet asking "How do you drive traffic to your blog?" and shared her own answer through a blogpost.
- I read her blog post and learned it was inspired by a question from Darren Rowse, the Problogger. He had asked his readers: When was your biggest day of traffic and how did it happen?
- I followed that link and started skimming through the comments on the Problogger post. I don't know what it was that made me stop and read comment #81, but it was a comment left by freelance writer Laura Spencer. I clicked on her name and ended up on her blog, Writing Thoughts.
Now if only I can remember who or what led me to Connie's Twitter account in the first place... :-P
