It’s taking me a little time in 2011 to get into a blogging groove.
My New Year’s Resolutions seem to be getting in the way. In fact, each year, I resolve NOT to make resolutions. But then I can’t help it, and I do.
You see, I love lists. I love making lists. I love crossing items off lists. I love reading other people’s lists. It’s really a compulsion for me, and January is sort of my favorite time of year.
Some of my goals this year are getting yoga certified, publishing more freelance writing, volunteering on a weekly basis, cooking from scratch, and being nicer to my husband.
I’ve also resolved to finally master Twitter.
Let me start of by saying, I understand Twitter on a basic level. I follow people and they follow me. I appreciate the brevity of the posts.
But what I can’t seem to grasp is how a person manages Twitter efficiently.
How does one sift through all the articles and advice and other people’s minutiae and still maintain productivity elsewhere in life?
How does it make it your life easier or better? How does it help you connect?
I only have the attention span to scroll through and read a few Twitter links before my eyes glaze over. I don’t even make a dent in what’s been posted within the last 24 hours.
So I’m calling on you for help. What’s your approach? How do you use it? Do you have a time limit? I need a strategy, PLEASE!
