I finally made sense of WordPress stats (more on that later) and now I am looking at Twitter Stats (Analytics). One assignment in the Blogging201 course was to pick a social media site that I would use to grow my blog. I wrote about that in this post But Am I Really That Sociable where I announced i would use Google+ to complete that. I decided to try Twitter instead because I get zero response from the post going to my Google+ account. Plus I cannot fine Google+ stats for the account.
I coordinated my Twitter page using the same background as this blog and included a different image from Cades Cove, TN. While I still do not get RTs (retweets), I have picked up a few followers from the Blogging201 class. And I had a few tweets tagged as Favorite.
The mom blogger at TinyExpats suggested tagging my Sunday blogvposts with #weekendbloghop and #sundayblogshare. I also tag the tweets on Sunday with those tags. At least I think I am doing that correctly because I am getting impression spikes. If not, perhaps someone can chime in a give me some “Twitter For Dummies” instruction on how to do this correctly.
This is what my Twitter Analytics page looks like.

WOW! I am blazing a trail on Twitter. Perhaps there should be a Twitter101 course to help folks like me that just can’t get the hang of Tweeting
I am open to suggestions and recommendations from the Twitter experts out there.
Thanks for stopping by, y’all come back now.
Jerry when I first got on Twitter I was confused by the hashtags and how to use them. I’d suggest you spend a few moments searching tags of interest like: #travel #campers #blogging #dogsoftwitter if you take a look around at what others are posting with these hashtags then you might find how best to tag your own to peak interest. Cheers
Thanks for that suggestion. I found an explanation by searching #mondayblog
Thanks for the hashtag ideas. This is such an overwhelming world — trying to get through it one blog at a time!
I didn’t even know twitter had stats Jerry! Guess I’ll have to give it a look. And I can’t figure out google at all! ~Elle
