Twitter. Ah, Twitter.

I like Twitter.

I really, really do.

I just went about it the wrong way in the beginning and now it’s biting me in the rear.

See, when I was adding Tweeps like crazy, I neglected to categorize them in lists.

Oh how I wish I had done that from the very start.  Now the thought of going through my whole followers section makes me want to……….never open my Twitter page again.

So, I have a plea.

Please leave your Twitter handle in the comment section so I can put you on my list of people where I actually want to see your tweets.

THANK you.

*  I am giving away a set of Calphelon skillets.  Giveaways ends on May 2nd.

*  Be sure to stop back in tomorrow.  I’m going to be giving away a $100 gift card to Barnes and Noble (can you hear the book worm in me singing with glee?), with links to 3 other $100 gift card giveaways.

  3. Hey Angie,
    Long time no msg. Just got to see Kirsten for Anson’s baptism. My how time flies!!
    You are the expert at this networking stuff and I neeed to learn it. Trying to get my book published and they told me to get an online following. No idea how!! A very big agent has requested part of my manuscript!! No pressure!! Yikes!

    • Jo! I’m so happy for you.

      On line following? I can help. Email me. If easier, we can chat on the phone, too. When you do get published I hope you let me be in on publicizing your book. 🙂 If not, I’m still going to beg for an autographed edition! 🙂 Seriously though, email or call me.

      • Awesome!! You’re a lifesaver! (= My cellphone number is 801-310-4560
        What’s yours?

  4. I wish I had done the same thing!

  5. I am stopping by for the first time…which I am not sure how that is possible because I see your button everywhere. Off to browse around!
    .-= Holly L´s last blog ..Home is – Getting Your Cooker On! =-.

    • I feel the same way about you.

      How is it possible that yesterday was my first visit to your site?

      Which reminds me. I need to add you to my reader. Now. 🙂

  6. If you want to see my tweets, I’m @getalonghome.
    .-= Cindy ´s last blog ..Contests Today =-.

  7. I don’t have nearly as many followers as you and it still seems like a huge chore! This is a good way to go about it.
    Hoping to make the list 🙂

  10. Small request – once you master creating those lists, create a post to help the rest of us 🙂 Your other tutorials rock!

  11. I failed to start lists, too and now I wish I would have started it in the beginning. Same with Facebook. Live and learn, I guess!

  13. I don’t get on twitter as often as I thought I would…and when I do I’m so far behind in reading tweets that it drives me crazy….perhaps I should start listing too

    I’ve never created lists, too much work. 🙂

  15. My handle is easy:


  16. Oh no, I didn’t do that either…eek.


  17. @SharonHujik

    (also wondering if you have found a solution to the Threaded Comment plugin… mine hasn’t been working (meaning people don’t get the emails). are you having the same problem?)

    • OK. Be sure to email me back if you get this so that I know it’s working. As you know, I was having issues for awhile and it turns out that another plug in was causing the problem. I’m not sure which one it is, but if you’ve installed new plug ins lately, that’s probably the issue. If you want, I can send you a list of possible culprits?

  18. I get kind of overwhelmed by Twitter sometimes. And confused when people’s blogs and twitter names are so different.


  19. Oh my goodness, I know how you feel but just not on that large of a scale. In fact, I started building lists in the beginning but it just got too time consuming. *sigh* In any case, my Twitter ID is @TweetingMama. Please add me to the Awesome Never-Fails-Parenting-101 List. Thank you. lol

    Kristi, Live and Love…Out Loud

    P.S. By the way, I’m starting a new blog carnival tomorrow called “OH NO HE DIDN’T!” TUESDAY. Stop by and check out the info when you get a chance. I’d love for you to play along as well if you’re interested. Have a great day!

  20. I think we’ve got each other. @SeriousKrystyn

    And, I don’t have a single group or list on twitter set up. I can only see it at night and on the weekends. Hope that makes you feel better!

    PS Since we are asking questions and this the thesis theme you are using? And, how did you get that fancy box at the top on the with different tabs (welcome, search, buttons, etc)?

    My bookworm heart is going pitter pat at the thought of $100 to B&N. Just think, I could read new releases without having to pay a fine or return them to the library before I finish them!

  32. I know… I was in the world of twitter WAY before lists… and guess what? I just found out the hard way (do I ever find out the easy way?) That you can only have 500 tweeps on a list… grrr.
    So now i have a goodncrazy list and a goodncrazy2 list.. 🙂 Ha! That’ll show em!

    In case I’m not on your most favoritest met in real life friend list.. I’m CarissaRogers on twitter… 🙂 Just so you know…

  37. You know me – TwitAdrian. I hear ya about the list thing. I get these followers that seem so random and I’m not sure how they found me and if I even want them reading all my tweets, so I judiciously prune my list every couple of weeks and at least week out the weirdos and the obvious spammers.

  38. I didn’t do this either! Yikes!

    I still don’t always get twitter. Just the other day I finally figured out who to see if anyone tweeted (term???) at me and I kinda felt bad that I never responded to all the people who did. Ooops. Off to tweet at you (God I feel old)?
