An Important Announcement for all my Tweeps
Welcome to the Blokester A-List!
I have an important message for all my special Tweeps. I made some changes that you will want to know about so please keep reading.
First of all let me say I appreciate each and every one of you … so much so that I have come up with an idea that will help to promote you.
As some of you may already know, I have made an exclusive Twitter friends list @BLOGBlokeTips/conversations. The only request that I make is that you regularly interact with me to be on the list.
That seems obvious, but I took that idea one step further and made a Twitter widget on this blog that lists the tweets of everyone who is on the “Friends” list. You can see it in action in the right-hand sidebar. This blog gets thousands of page loads a day so you should appreciate the benefit it will have for you.
Since I’ve now added even further benefits for my “Friends” I have one more request to make … and that is you visit this blog regularly and leave a comment when I write a new post.
I stress the word “regularly” because this offer is based on performance and is not just a one-shot deal. Obviously I’m not interested in someone who just wants to use me for cheap publicity without any effort. I already have enough one-hit wonders (backlink builders) leaving a comment and never to be heard again.
I’m looking for a sense of community and real long-term relationships, and if I find someone is no longer interacting then I reserve the right to bump them off the list.
I’ve also added a Facebook fanbox for your pic and tweets will show up in Friendfeed.
I will monitor this closely for awhile and if I find that this feature is being abused or if nobody seems interested I will remove the widget(s). That only seems fair.
Think of this as the Blokester A-List and my way of thanking y’all for being an important part of this community. I hope you enjoy this new feature and I recommend that all of you do the same for your blog.
