Do you like to follow people on Twitter? I myself NEVER in a million years thought that I would be on Twitter making “Tweets”. I even have a handle (which just means I have a name) The things you learn in a hotel in downtown Des Moines, Iowa! Mr Man had work down here and I took a day off work to come with him and do nothing but learn blog stuff. (Don’t you like my technical term? LOL)
Here is my learning center (Hee Hee)
Essential learning tools: Starbucks Frappe, calendar, Blog notebook, pen, phone, and yes … cheaters (glasses for up close). Check, Check!
Also essential for learning … a boring view.
Overcast, rooftop with mechanical stuff, parking lot … Check, check! (LOL, maybe the hotel would not like that printed in a blog? No names are being used to protect the
innocent them. 🙂 )
Today I am learning all I can about Twitter
Their logo … for those of you, who have seen this bird, but not known what it was …
One resource that I am using is Twitter.com. Since they are THE company I thought that they should be the first resource to go to. Smart, right?! Here is the short version …
1. They show you around their site not only through words but by watching short videos is you choose.
2. They give you links to other sites to decorate your “Home page” if you don’t like what they offer. (I chose to find something different, because that is how I roll, and to try it out for practice).
I chose this background for these reasons … I live in Minnesota and LOVE the snow. The red berries on the tree really pop and I think red and gray are my new favorite colors at the moment. I may have to change the background color on my new blog button now that I am looking at it 🙂 Later!
3. They offer help topics
All of which were a must read for me!
The 2nd resource that was recommended to read was Funky Junk’s “3 Ways to use Twitter”.
1. I learned all about TweetDeck and the ways you can use it to organize your list of interests. It can be tailored to what you want. If you like organization you will love this tool.
2. I learned about TweetChat and why I would love to have this feature. For anyone who will be chatting about just “one subject” … this is a must have! I will be using it soon with fellow bloggers and I am so EXCITED!!! (Can you tell? LOL)
