Yes, I’m afraid I’ve been beaten to the branch and some other twit has nabbed ‘samuraiwriter’ on Twitter.com.
So I went with samuraiwriter99 instead.
The orange icon, if you’re not familiar with RSS feeds, is to allow you to access my blog posts (and those of other blogs you like) via your choice of feed reading software e.g. Google’s Feed reader.
Only Muppets Tweet?
I must admit my first reaction to the world of Tweeting – micro posts of 140 characters or less – was to roll my eyes and mentally utter, “You muppet, McClure. There’s no time to blog, write articles, write copy etc etc – let alone tweet sweet nothings about…er, nothing much in particular.”
Or so I thought…
… but having seen some ghostwriters, copywriters and marketers use it to allow customers, prospects and the plain curious to see more of what they are about, I figure I can at least demo what a mid-career ghostwriter, copywriter and career/life coach brings to this digital bird bath 🙂
Sure, from time to time I’ll soft-sell a writing service or special offer – the early bird gets the worm, so to speak.
But I’ll be mostly interested in two things from fluttering about in Twitter space:
Marketing the feck out of, sorry, I mean finding out if online business owners (my generic target market) can be persuaded to perch alongside me.
2- Learning to write headlines in 140 characters or less 😉
