What Did #1LineWed Do For Me?

A little while back we talked about social media and some of the hashtags you can use. Today was “one line Wednesday” (#1linewed)

(Okay, we talk about social  media a lot, like HERE, HERE, and HERE also HERE and HERE, and yes these are all different.)

There’s a theme each week and you do whatever the theme is. Today it was “last line of the chapter.” Easy enough. But by posting a dozen or so tweets with the last lines of chapters and tweeting with the #1linewed, you can generate traffic to your Twitter account, your blog, and maybe add a few followers.

That tall bar? That's today!
That tall bar? That’s today!

Here are my results

  • LOTS of Twitter traffic (see the above kickass bar chart)
  • added about 50 or so Twitter followers today
  • a better than average blog traffic day – but that can be because of the tweets or the topic, so several things go into that, below:

    Blog traffic - today is orange
    Blog traffic – today is orange
  • added 10 blog followers in the last 16 hours, so that’s about when I started tweeting (again, several things go into that)
  • a couple of people liked my Facebook author page

Not bad, and I wanted to let you know!

  1. I do agree with networking, Dan. Congratulations! 🙂 I am happy with my slow progress but mainly, I do enjoy the company of my fellow bloggers. 🙂

    1. When you get on Twitter, in the upper right is the search function (on a computer, maybe not on phones) and type in #1linewed. It will take you to that page, and under “Accounts” are the two admins of #1linewed. I click on Kiss Of Death and he will have pinned the theme for the week.

      Don’t worry, it took me a while to figure that out. Like, weeks of doing it wrong.

  2. Thanks!
    My posts didn’t generate much of an increase in traffic or follows on Twitter, and nothing to my blog…
    Hopefully next time will be better.
