At long last the incredible story about how Twitter has impacted my blogging. Yes, the post in which the world famous TheJackB pulls back the curtain and demonstrates that the wizard is a just an ordinary man.
It is a thoroughly unscientific analysis. I joined Twitter in December of 2008, but didn’t really start using it with any regularity until somewhere around March of this year. For those keeping track that left me a hair shy of my fifth blogiversary.
If I am not mistaken I have chosen to tweet and not blog about certain stories. I suspect that if I took a hard look I’d find that those were the stories that I classify as caught my eye. A collection of odd stories is really what it is.
That doesn’t mean that I don’t still blog about them, I just do it less frequently. If you consider that the pace at which I blog has slowed down it is reasonable to wonder if there is any correlation between that as well. It could be that it is more coincidental than anything else.
On a slightly different tack I have noticed that traffic to the blog has been progressively increasing. It seems to follow the number of Twitter followers.
So in the final unscientific analysis I’d have to say that I am pleased with Twitter.I find it to be an interesting source of information and a useful tool that I can rely upon.
