Learning to Twitter – Part 1

As you probably know by now, I hosted a multi-contributor advent calendar in December 2015. There are many things I learnt while playing hostess, and one of them was how to find my way around twitter. I joined twitter in September, just before my first guest appearance and after a blogger had asked me where I can be found on social media. In the world of blogging being on at least one time consuming social media platform seems to be a must.

So here are some of my twitter tips.  Continue reading “Learning to Twitter – Part 1”

If we were having coffee – 12 September 2015

If we were having coffee, then I would greet you with a big smile.
Come in! Sit! I am so excited to have you here today!

But before I tell you why I am jumping up and down, how are you? What have you been up to since last time you joined me for a drink. Sorry, still no coffee here (but that does not mean that you have to leave now). What about a nice hot chocolate? I’ll even add some vanilla.

After I have asked you a ton of questions, you’d probably want to know what I have been up to this week, an of course what the big news is.

So, this week I went back to work, and I really enjoyed it. I went to the new park not far from here, the Martin Luther King Parc, took a lot of pictures, that way I can decorate my future article about it.
On Thursday afternoon, little one started to sneeze, and the situation deteriorated quickly in a night marked by a big fever. But nothing could wipe the smile of her face.
I have managed to blog quite a bit this week, but none of my other writing projects have advanced in a long time now. Yesterday I posted a list of some of my favourite blogs.

And now to the news, my blog is celebrating it’s 6 month anniversary!!! The first post went up on the 12th of March 2015! Since then so many things have happened, I now have almost 200 followers, and almost 100 posts (this is number 97). A few weeks ago, an author, who I could find no where on the internet, wrote me an email, thanking me for the review I had posted here.  In order to celebrate these 0.5 years of my blog, and because I have been asked where I can be found… I have decided to set up a twitter account. You can now find me as @SolveigJW
When my blog started out, I did not have a lot of followers, and there are some posts that I would love to share with you. Such as this one about an artist we met on a walk.

In order to make navigation easier, now that I am no longer a novice, I am trying to reorganise my menu/categories/tags, meaning that things might be a bit messy and harder to find over the next few days. I also want to try to establish something that resembles a schedule, on Mondays there will be a photo with its story, on Tuesday I’ll try to join #BlogBattle, on Fridays it’s book review day, on Saturdays it’s Weekend Coffee Share. I’d love to do a regular (maybe monthly feature) of having authors for interviews, I really enjoy doing interviews and have not done any in ages.

If all of this wasn’t enough, I have another reason to celebrate. On Monday I will be doing my first ever guest post. Ula is kindly having me on her blog Confessions of a Broccoli Addict as part of her Monday Inspirations Series. I am so exited!

Now it’s time for you to leave, and head over to Diana’s Blog Part-Time Monster, check out the Coffee Share Linky, join in with your own post and read those of the others. As it is raining I hope you have equipped yourself with an umbrella, if not, I will lend you one. And if you were wondering, the badge on top of the post, well it is kindly provided by Part-Time Monster.

Have a great weekend! Thanks for joining me for coffee (hot chocolate?), Solveig
