So, I'm reading in the etsy forums about how twitter helps get you exposure and sales for your etsy shop, but what exactly is the point of twitter?
Apparently you are supposed to tell people what you are doing all the time, like anyone would really even care. You are supposed to tweet by texting things like 'just went to the movies' or 'having lunch now' or whatever. Come on now, does anyone else really need to know what you are doing 24/7 and is anyone's life really all that interesting? I joined twitter for about 5 minutes and then canceled it because I couldn't think of anything to say. Plus, I don't have a cell phone, so I have to be at the computer to tweet.
Here's what my daily tweets would look like:
I'm having my coffee.
I'm cleaning the cat boxes.
Just put a load of laundry in the washer.
Just put a load of laundry in the dryer.
I'm sitting at the computer reading blogs.
Now I'm blogging.
Lunch time! Peanut butter or tuna?
I'm thinking about cleaning the bathroom.
Nah, I'm not going to clean the bathroom today.
I'm vacuuming up cat hair.
Now it's time to clean the cat boxes again.
Dinner time! Peanut butter or tuna?
Wow, TV is so exciting tonight! Biggest Loser or Howie Mandel?!?
See what I mean? I'm sure I'd have plenty of twitterers hanging on my every tweet with that stuff!
Oh, and I sold a necklace to a...well, I guess you could call her a celebrity or famous person (maybe infamous). Without naming names (shhh...) there is a blonde woman singer/actress who's first name begins with C and last name begins with L and who was married to a grunge band singer who shot his head off some years ago, and she has a child that they keep taking away from her because she is a big druggie, and she likes to shop on etsy. Did you guess yet?
Anyway, this is what she bought but I haven't shipped it yet since she paid by echeck and I'm waiting to make sure it clears first.
