Why I'm Retweeting More


As a small blogger, how thrilling is it when a fellow writer retweets one of our posts?

That simple act of saying “I appreciate your work and I want my followers to appreciate it too” is a gift to those struggling to be heard on this densely packed internet that we exist in. 

Retweeting blog posts that we have enjoyed is basically great for everyone. For the blogger, obviously, it’s a chance for more traffic and a wonderful feeling of validation. For yourself it’s a great chance to mix up the content you’re producing on the platform - have you ever heard of the 80/20 rule? Finally for your followers it’s a chance to discover someone new, and read exciting new content that they might otherwise have missed. 

I have been feeling a little bored of reading blogs lately. I crave original content, and whilst there are incredible people producing excellent pieces of writing they sometimes feel like a special drop in an ocean of lipstick reviews (no offence to beauty bloggers but I will never get excited about make up posts).

Notable posts that I have loved recently are:

Laura’s hauntingly vulnerable account of her childhood demons

Freya’s diary of her trip to Senegal

This isn’t to say that everyone else isn’t doing a great job, but we all have different tastes. Some of the above bloggers also do beauty posts, and I just know that I’ll enjoy the other things they write far more. But I would love for some of my favourite bloggers to retweet their favourite bloggers, because there’s probably many talented people that I’m missing out on.

So the next time you love a post, why not give it a retweet and help us all out?

  1. I love this post! It's hard to find posts/blogs that are not completely beauty-related. I'd like to see more content that isn't about primers or lipsticks. I also retweet blog posts that I love and expect nothing in return. Simply because I like the post and I want to share it with my followers. :)

  2. I love seeing bloggers support each other & it definitely always makes my day when someone shares one of my posts :) It's just such a lovely feeling to know that they liked what you wrote about & want others to read it too. This post made me realise that I don't share blogposts I enjoy enough & I definitely want to do it more often so thanks for the reminder x

  7. I started to adopt the same attitude towards blog posts I've enjoyed! It's great to feel a part of the community & help others feel more involved.

    My only problem is that it takes me a while to get around to reading blog posts (even this post has been on my reading list for a few days) so sometimes I feel late to the party! I'm working on it - guess that's the best thing to do :)
