    I love twitter. It’s perfect for those snatches of time on the train when you want an interesting link to follow or to read something funny from a friend but don’t have time to surf around much.

    I’m having a small issue I cannot make my reader pick up your feed, I’m using google reader by the way.

    Hi,
    Thanks for the feedback, is it a problem with the RSS feed link on the right? I added a new one last night, otherwise if you use the subscribe button in your google reader and to add the right page put bluenosegirl.com or http://bluenosegirlblog.dev/feed/ it should work that way.

    Let me know how you get on.

    Michelle,

    As old friends come on board, I find myself giving them some tips on how to make the most of Twitter. Here’s what I would add to your starter:

    Getting into the Twitter can take some time for most people. Many start with 0 followers. And it’s easy to be intimidated when you notice others with 1000, 20k, or 100k or more followers.

    Give it time. Engage people. Say hello. You can even say hello to me ( http://www.twitter.com/Faryna ) and it’s very likely that I’ll say hello back. RT (Retweet) the things that people tweet that are interesting or funny to you. Resonate! And tweet thoughts or news that resonate with you so that others can discover how you resonate with them.

    Have fun. Be you. Be patient. Dive in. Retweet.

      Great points Stan, resonating is what it’s all about when engaging with others. I started off as a bit of a lurker before having the courage to start engaging, but when it did it was all about the things I resonated with, then one thing lead to another and I became a big Twitter fan.
