It’s always difficult to talk about self-promotion. But why write a blog if no-one reads it? This discussion is about promotion of your blog via Twitter, obviously there are many other ways to promote blogs.
Timing in promoting your blog is obviously important. You can tweet about it at three in the morning, but those tweets will buried by the time most people are on twitter the next day. But what is the best time to promote your blog? And how many times should you mention it in a day?
I don’t have a lot of answers or experience here. I’m hoping to get a lot of viewpoints via comments. When you tweet about your blog on twitter, you rely on retweets, tweeted comments, etc. My practice has been to mention it a couple of times the first day, once mid-morning, once in the evening. Then maybe once the next day. I do have a few loyal friends who always tend to retweet, so I do try to time it for when some of them are tweeting.
So what’s your opinion? How much to tweet and when? And when does it become too much?
