I’ve had a twitter account since 2014. I’m pretty sure I created it once this blog started to gain some ground because I wanted to post any book reviews there. The only problem is that I never really understood Twitter that much or why people love it so much. In any case, I just kind of dropped off of Twitter though I never deleted my account. This was solidified after I read Dave Eggers’ The Circle.
Now I’m wondering if I should try to utilize Twitter again or just not have it. And that is where this post comes in! I know that many book bloggers and authors have Twitter and use it link book reviews and other book related articles.
It seems like it’s a lot of work to keep on top of other’s tweets and your own. However, used right and consistently and it could help blog traffic, etc.
But that’s the thing – while I enjoy seeing people coming to my blog and reading, I don’t have this need to have those numbers get higher and higher. Blogging has become a huge hobby of mine and I mainly do it for myself.
And that’s why I have always wondered if it’s even worth it. I like the idea of tagging authors of books that I read and wrote a review for, especially if it’s a book I highly enjoyed. But I also think I would be okay not experiencing any of it.
So, do you have a Twitter? Do you think it’s worth it? Or do you think it doesn’t matter?
