Submit Your Twitter Testimonies and Spread the Word!

I’ve been thinking a lot lately about Twitter and how it can be used as a business building tool. I’ve also heard of some pretty awesome ways that twitter has been a help to individuals on a personal level. I think this is a topic worth exploring. To do this, though, I need your help! Please use the form below to submit real examples of how Twitter has helped you professionally and personally. I will compile these testimonies and put together a post, or possibly some other type of presentation in a few weeks.

Help spread the word by retweeting this post, to make it easy here’s a tweet you can copy and paste:

I’m excited to hear about your experiences!

Kids and Blogging: A Call for Parents to Respond!

PC is my best friendAt the end of one full week of blogging with my son I am seeing some things that work, some things that don’t, and a lot of things that will develop as time goes on. I started writing a Top 10 type blog post and then stopped myself. After all, I have a grand total of one week of experience observing how my son approaches blogging. So instead of claiming to have advice to offer others I would rather gather information from others that are doing this!

With that said, I would like to start gathering stories and experiences from other parents with young bloggers. Here are some things I’d be interested in hearing.

  1. At what age did your child begin blogging?
  2. Was starting a blog his/her idea or did you suggest it?
  3. How involved were you in the beginning
  4. How involved are you now.
  5. How often does your child post?
  6. What types of things does your child write about?
  7. Is the blog public or private?
  8. What blogging platform is the blog using?
  9. Do you have any advice regarding kids and blogging that would be useful for other parents that are considering it for their own children?
  10. If you are comfortable, leave the URL of your child’s blog. I would love to share it with my son.

Alternatively, if your child does not have a blog tell me about how you think blogging would (or would not) be a good thing for kids to be involved in.

You can leave a comment on this post or use the contact link at the top of the page. I hope to get a lot of responses! I think the information gathered here will be very useful as I plan to spend a lot of time writing about this subject over the next several months (and hopefully beyond!)
