So last week, I asked you all if you would rather have 1K blog followers or 10K Twitter followers.
I'm not surprised to find that blog followers won the overall vote (though I wonder if the results would have been different it this was polled on Twitter) . . . but I am surprised with the general perception about Twitter from the people that answered.
Perhaps Twitter doesn't allow the same deep insight as a blog post does, I won't argue that. But on the flip side, when you're pressed for time and want to let people know you're thinking about them, you can easily check in with a dozen or so in the same time it takes to read & respond to your average blog post.
I think, balancing a good blend of the two is a smart idea. Heck, I'm a blogging writer and I'll admit there are very few published authors blogs I visit with any regularity. But I know exactly what's going on with Richelle Mead or Cassandra Clare because (as Betty White would say) they're on The Twitter.
Now on to this week's question:
If you were forced to live as character from a fantasy saga (in their world, not ours), would you rather be in . . . ?
A) Lord of The Rings
B) Harry Potter
Bonus question: Which character would you like to be and why?
