What’s all this Blogging and Twitter business?

It’s almost been a year since I started my blog, Against the Wind. I’ve been tweeting for longer than that, about 2 and a half years. Blogs and Twitter were born ready for one another. I use one, Twitter, to “advertise” my blog. Why would I want to “advertise?” Reaching as many
followers as I can is not my goal. Making connections is the point of this. The count does not matter. Those connections not only include people that agree with me, which is great, but also those who do not. The disagreements can lead to changing the way I think about a topic or cement my feelings about my beliefs. Indeed, this business is about connecting which leads to learning.


  1. Thanks for sharing! I'm fairly new to Twitter, maybe 6 months or so, but have been tweeting more the last week or so. I've had a blog for a couple of years, but do not blog so regularly. (I'm getting better, though.) I feel the same way, I tweet to advertise my blog; but definitely agree, its the connections that lead to learning.
