  1. The not tweeting teh same thing too many times thing can be a real issue sometimes, I’ve noticed. I tend to tweet about a post twice on the day of relase, and once in a weekly round-up, but otherwise don’t dig them out too often. I’ve seen people posting every hour about the same thing ebfore now though, and it really can make you zone out with it.

    1. Yeah, how you do it is fine! But, if you are posting every hour I just see you as a attention seeker who just wants to get more traffic… In fact, I’ll just unfollow people like them! I have better things to do with my life than watching spam xD

  2. I sometimes see people that say: always follows back. And I think: WHY? I follow people because I am interested in what they have to say, or because their blog or whatever it is they have is cool. That said…even though I still see some blogs every day that I come across that look interesting I don’t follow anymore: exactly for that reason: Why follow if you know you just can’t read all the posts from them? Sometimes I still make the occasional exception. But I would feel horrible to just follow someone and never really read their posts. But…maybe that is just me. Also..as usual, this was a terrific post 😊

    1. Yeah, I really can’t understand that! The same goes with “Like everything people post”. We all have limited time, so I think you should just follow whoever you think it’s interesting enough and the same goes to the posts.

      I mean, I would love to read everyone’s posts, but I just don’t have the time for that. So, I’m sorry, but I’ll just read your stuff if I think it’s interesting. It may feel a little harsh, but on top of everything I’m just. This way, I feel that people who in fact write in a terrific manner and really spend their time making great content deserve my time more than others that I don’t feel as interesting….

      Thank you Raist ❀

      1. Completely agree with you on that 😊 It is for me why I have put a limit on the number of blogs to follow, despite making the occasional exception! And I think that is fine too. People that just follow for the follow or give a 100 likes in the space of 5 seconds just aren’t people I am interested in following. Oh and of course: you are welcome 😊😊

  3. I think social media and twitter remain a bit of an enigma, but the one bit of sensible advice is that the more you engage, the more likely people are to engage with you. Being passive and waiting for people to notice you is not going to work. Seeking out content you like and sharing it or commenting on it, is likely to bring people to check out your work and maybe engage with it. Still, there are plenty of people who publish tips on how to increase engagement and maybe statistically they would work, but the question remains of how many of those engagements are people actually caring.

    1. I completely agree with you. Most of the times, people are just guessing what works… It doesn’t mean that they are completely right.

      And yeah, that’s a good advice. Twitter is just like a huge party! If you stay in a corner not talking with anyone probably people will not come and talk to you… That’s why I also defend that you SHOULD follow some people that you feel that are instering… But just following for the follow back, that’s a NO!

      1. I picked up a lot of the people I followed initially during the Yuri on Ice craze and mostly just followed people retweeting, creating and sharing anything around that. This season I seem to be picking up people discussing Banana Fish and My Hero Academia. Then again, my Twitter followers tend to fluctuate a lot with each season and the people I routinely interact with tend to be other bloggers that I know from their blogs.

    1. I never saw liquid fries, so I think you are right on that! πŸ˜€ Sorry, had to do this terribly joke πŸ˜›

      Well, it may work… If I want to stay with really skinny arms and legs but then have a huge belly!

      Now that I think about it, then I can say I’m pregnat and pass over everyone in line in the supermatket 🀯

  4. I really think you should eat more. Here, have a donut! 🍩 No but I know it, I’m on the other end of that. People bullshitting you with “you should really eat less” and “are you sure you should eat that”. Not to mention all the latest diets they so kindly tell you about. And I’m not even that fat! πŸ˜’ So I know what it’s like. Well, it gets easier when you get older. People aren’t as adamant to give such idiotic advices when you turn 40. 😎

    As for Twitter; I never tweet the same stuff twice. I can rant about stuff but I don’t see the good in retweeting your own stuff. I get annoyed and chances are I unfollow people who does that regularly. Some vloggers/bloggers have a tendency to post links to their new posts several times and yeah, just don’t do that. i get that you want to get the message out that you have a new post up but once is enough. Or maybe I just follow too few so I see them too easily? πŸ€”

    1. *Eats the donut*, *looks to the scale* -> just lost weight xD

      ahahah! Well, I don’t know, I think my mother will always see me as a baby, no matter the age I have ahah

      But I don’t really get it… Like, unless you are unhealthy and then yes, you need to look it up and try to get better, the is no freaking reason why someone should make any kind of commentary to someone’s weight or what they should eat. Maybe try to think more about their own life for a sec would be a better thing to do… I don’t know, just saying….

      I’m with you on this one! Posting too many times the same thing will just make me think you are an attention seeker… Moreover, it will in fact undermine my thoughts about your work. I mean, if it was really good, I’m sure other people would put it out on Twitter too, right?

      1. πŸ˜‚ Well, mothers will always be an exception, they will always worry out of love. And, as annoying as it is, it is a good thing. ❀ I think people who have issues themselves transfer them on others. It is their way of feel better i suppose. I don't really care, all I know is that I will never do the same to my kids that my mom did to me. Constantly telling me I need to loose weight and tell me that I can get better. Also, force me to eat up. That screwed up my relatinship to food. A whole other story though. Anyway…

        I think that people will retweet your work if it is good, yes. I try to if I catch it. I've been a bit bad at it this summer because of reasons you all know about. My absence and all but yeah if you like something you should retweet it I think. And I think people do. This last week or so I have seen a lot of retweets from people. It's nice.

      2. Yeah, I also think that! That’s why I don’t judge my mother when she says those kind of things πŸ˜› I know those comments come from a caring place πŸ˜›

        However, I think that mothers should know when to cross the line… Happy that you are going to go in another way with your kids!
