So I’m going to stop using Twitter Tools to hit up Twitter every time I write a blog post. I’ve given this some thought over the last several days ever since Blankenship tweeted about it. I agree with his sentiment vis-a-vis “pimping” my blog – at least on Twitter. I’ll certainly keep my blog listed on RVABlogs.com – if only because I do frequently write about Richmond-related topics (my short little write-up of deLux is more popular than I thought it would be) – but Blankenship’s essential premise makes sense. If you like my blog, you’ll read it. Pimping may bring visitors, but it won’t retain readers.
It’s just that for posts after this one, you’ll actually have to come here (or check your feed reader) to see if I’ve posted something new.
One thought on “Putting My Twitter Tools Away”
Well, FWIW, I’ve been using Twitter Tools on my blog for a while now. I’ve been very remiss in posting blog entries but TT parses my Tweets and posts them on the blog AND sends a daily blog post to Twitter highlighting that. It’s a cool concept but probably a little invasive to a few. So, thx for posting your thoughts about it too!
