In this video we discuss if you should be updating your blog to Twitter.
Laura Roeder: Hi, I'm Laura Roeder here to answer the age old question should I be updating my Twitter account with every blog post that I make? This one has a really easy answer yes, yes; yes. You should definitely be linking all of your blog posts on Twitter you'd probably even want to make them a few times. Here is the reason why, why would people be following you on Twitter if they didn't want to read your blog.
People have chosen to follow you because they are interested in you and what's going on in your world meaning there are really good match for people who want to read your blog. And some people ask me you know as they feel weird about this because they might be thinking you know they are already reading the blog, if they are following me on Twitters I am bothering them if I'm talking about more and especially talking about it more than once that would just be really aggressive.
No not true, what you have to remember is that it seems like a lot to you because you are the one you spend a long time writing the blog post and then editing it and then you read it, you also write to your tweets where you talked about it but here is the thing, other people are not as involved in your world as you are. I hate to break it to you. They don't read all your blog posts they don't read every tweet that you put out so people appreciate the remainder again they are following you because they like you, they want to know what you are doing.
So they appreciate the reminder of what's going on in your blog also if they see a tweet about a blog post they have, they have already read no big deal they probably wont click on that one, they will think okay I've already read that post but it's not an offense or bothersome in any way. So yes you definitely want to link to all your blog posts in your Twitter account you might even want to link to them more than once to a few reminders to make sure that everybody sees them.
