Twitter Theme Days
Twitter Theme Days for Travel Writers.
This post is a bit of a departure from the usual posts on travel stories but there is a purpose for my detour. Social Media is important and it is also just like making friends in the playground. Everyone likes to be liked and to feel a bit special and nothing hits the mark like a personal mention, a retweet or a little shout out. For travellers it can be nice to have a public voice when you’re far away from civilisation (if you even get signal to tweet in the first place!)
Illinois Atlas has just started to tweet as a blog after years of tweeting for pleasure I have put together a handy list of Twitter theme days to remind you how to get involved in a larger community of tweeters and in the process get a few new follows.
Monday is #musicmonday which means sharing your favourite music. I always think a share of something uplifting is a good idea for a Monday and picking a really good one might get a few more followers! #EcoMonday is great for eco-friendly people and businesses wanting to connect.
Tuesday is #techtuesday this is the place to share any techie news with your followers.
Wednesday is #woofwednesday- Think dogs and you won’t go far wrong. You can give a big woof from your dog or even post a twitpic of a dog doing something funny.
Thursday: #thankfulthursday remember to be humble and thankful for everything you have and share something nice with your followers.
Friday: #followfriday- suggest followers to your followers as a little thank you.
Haiku day is on April 17th and is usually pushed on twitter although not strictly a twitter theme days hash-tagged theme like the weekly events. Fun though!
Wordle day is really fun for bloggers. The 2013 date has not been released but it will be and I will be making a wordle.
July 6th International Kissing Day or World Kiss day – Why wouldn’t you send a few kisses to your followers?
#TTOT Travel talk on twitter (my personal favourite!) Let’s all get involved with this one it might be one of the best twitter theme days ever!
Travel far and wide fellow wanderlusters and get tweeting!
