    Thank you for this post! I had no idea that Tweepi existed either but now I’m going to go sign up ASAP! 😀

    It’s interesting, but it just seems weird to me that people freak out over stars and trophies and all of those seemingly insignificant things. But I get it. If I got money for page views or hits, I would probably invest a lot more energy into getting more followers and blog readers.

    The truth is, I would LOVE more Twitter followers. I think I’m semi-funny and would LOVE more readers to me blog. I just worry that extra time spent on Twitter is rather pointless and would result in generic followers who only want me to retweet them or something. However, I trust you, so I’ll look into this one 😉

      Yep, that’s exactly why the favstar method didn’t work for me. I don’t want just followers, I want people that might actually like my writing. Tweepi let me increase the odds of that quite a bit. For instance, I followed all YOUR followers since I figured many might be vaguely familiar with me already from commenting on your blog.

      So if you felt vaguely violated about a month ago, that was me. 🙂

        I also wasn’t trying to sound Irish with “me blog.” Ugh. Typos. THAT’S why no one reads my tweets or blog 😉

        Ok, this is already paying off, right? The fact that I’m reading this tells me the whole thing must work because your tweet caught my eye and I clicked through. Oh, and I like it, too. 😉

        And Abby, I’m gonna check out your blog, too. Wins all around!

        “Wins” or “wine”? I need that distinction to be clear so I can decide on my level of enthusiasm…

    Great post! I discovered your blog via twitter and am now a regular reader, so clearly this method works to drive people with similar interests to your blog. Thanks for sharing!

    I am a Twitter neophyte all the way, just really starting it. So, this is helpful because I am floundering with a small audience and would love to grow traffic to my blog. Thanks for the advice and I aspire to be as pithy and smart in my tweets as you are!!!

      I think the fact that I “bought” 200-300 followers in the beginning (as mentioned in that other article linked above) might have helped me look a little better to potential REAL followers at first, though it did make me feel dirty…

    I concur with Carrie. Having other people do the work for me is awesome. It’s like having someone cook you a nice meal and do all the dishes. Which I guess happens every time you eat at a restaurant. So apparently that means your blog is like eating at a restaurant. A really nice restaurant where there’s lots of wine.

    Hey, Amy!
    We’ve nominated your blog for the “Seven Things About Me Award”–just because we think you’re awesome. To accept the award, you should do three things:
    1. Link back to the nominator (that would be us).
    2. Post seven things about yourself–this can be as wacky or original as you like.
    3. Nominate seven blogs you like, and let them know you’ve done so.
    There’s a badge involved, which you can lift from our site.
    Of course, you can also choose to simply bask in our admiration, and that’s totally cool. Either way, we think you’re something special!
    Karen and Wendy

      I’m really more of a basker…awards that take time out of my busy drinking schedule… but I REALLY appreciate the sentiment! I will think of a way to reward you back… And in case people missed it in your note, here is your link! http://afterthekidsleave.com/

    Thanks for writing this, I was so intrigued by this when you mentioned it on Studio 30+.

    This sounds like a much better way to find like-minded people/possible readers than what I’d been doing.

    For example, did you know that most people who self-identify on Twitter as “childfree” are also “furries” and/or pagans? …not that there’s anything wrong with that…

    Thanks for the great information. I didn’t know about Tweepi either. I could “hear the angels” when I read your post. Much appreciated!

      You’re welcome! (I don’t know if anyone has told you but there is a bowl stuck to the side of your head)

    I totally didn’t know about tweepi (apparently I’m dingy too). I found you from someone else’s blog who put you as one of the blogs they follow, although I don’t remember whose blog that was anymore… anyhoo I followed you on twitter now too, only because I liked the story of when your husband got chiggers on his butt though.

    I’ve never quite got twitter to work for me but I’m going to give it another go after reading this.

    Am learning more each minute I am on Twitter. I was wondering how the followers came and went. Thanks to this I am enlightened. 🙂 Nice post. Thanks.

    So I’m still not sure if Twitter is a great big black hole or what, because to date our activity has not been driving traffic to our blog. But I like your combination of rationale and cynicism, so I’m going to investigate. (I may have to read the post 3 or 4 more times to completely understand how tweepi works, but I’ll get there eventually!)

    Meanwhile, I have am now following you on Twitter and have discovered your blog. . . so there is that 🙂

    I finally checked out this article after months of seeing people randomly coming to my site from clicking the link.

    Thanks for the plug, and you make some valid points. Although more recently, I’ve found it’s less important to have numbers of followers, regardless of how many it is. If you’re not engaging with them, they won’t click sod all anyway.

    I’ve enjoyed my whole Twitter experience far more since actually taking the time to get to know them a little better, and have coincidentally found clicks though to my site from Twitter have increased massively.

    Dump the one-way jokesters. They’re not adding anything to your twitterverse. Unless you give them a lame trophy, and then they might check out your site. Once.

      I came to the same conclusion myself. I still do Tweepi (though less so) because I’ve discovered a lot of really cool people “by accident” through it. (and had a lot of people discover I exist that way as well.) But I’ve dumped all the Favstar freaks (for example) even though I knew they’d dump me if I did. I follow the followers of people I enjoy, greatly increasing the chance that I’ll like them.

      Empty followers definitely do nothing for you!

    Finally a properly written “Twitter for Dummies”, thanks a lot! I will test it in both English and Slovak speaking environment and will see. It seems that Twitter is half dead in Slovakia, but nevermind, still worth trying.

    Eh, I guess I know why twitter is is half dead in Slovakia. We keep forgetting to use our usernames.

    I love finding new folks on Twitter. When I do get a follow, I always check them out and see if they are interesting, and if so, I follow back. Meeting cool people is fun! Lo and behold, upon checking you out, I found a terrifically written blog and a very funny lady who, like me, is child-free and dog-obsessed. Now I get to spend time going back and reading everything. Huzzah! So, thanks for that.
