Taking the First Steps on Twitter

I’m usually pretty social, although I have my tendencies to get shy around people I don’t know at all or those I deem “famous.”  Sometimes I still freeze up talking to a favorite author.

When I first started blogging, I was a bit isolated. I wrote posts every so often, and I got some views and comments but not much. I started commenting on other people’s blogs and built some confidence and great relationships with people.

This gave me the courage to finally join Twitter. It’s a great way to connect with bloggers, authors, publicists and others instantly. I know it’s hard to open up at first, but trust me that you’ll be happy that you did! I’ve made so many friends through Twitter that I couldn’t possibly have done just through my blog. Tweeting links to your posts will also increase your blog traffic. New friends, new readers, better traffic. It’s a win-win-win situation! Once you take the first step of conversing more on Twitter, everything gets a bit easier.

Here are some friendly bloggers I follow and talk to who are really supportive, funny, and friendly.
**There are TONS of great bloggers, but if I listed everyone this post would be endless.

Teen Bloggers:

Relatable Bloggers:
They always tweet things that are so true about bookishness, and you can’t help but respond to them.

Thoughtful Bloggers:
These bloggers write such thought-provoking posts and tweets.

Hilarious Bloggers:

Nice Bloggers:
Lots of bloggers are nice, but these ones are super sweet!

And I’m @yaperfectionist, so if you ever have any questions or just want to chat, feel free to tweet me!

  1. Twitter is pretty amazing! It's so much easier to talk to people and to build relationships on that platform (at least I think so :)
    Great post Rachel!

  2. I always love to connect with new bloggers so thank you SO MUCH for giving us this list of other awesome bloggers to connect with! <3 There is a strategy to Twitter and it's best to just work on things day by day! <3

  3. Well aren't you the sweetest! ♥ This post is REALLY great though. I know that I was so, so scared to venture onto Twitter at first. I kept wondering what would happen if I actually reached out and tried to talk to someone- would they be like "ew who are you, go away"? (Spoiler, they weren't hahah) But it's definitely intimidating, especially when you don't know where or how to start!


I read, value, and cherish each and every comment. Although I don't have time to respond to most of them, I make every effort to comment back on your blog! :)
