5 Twitter Video Applications You Can Use Right Now!

I just love the folks at Mashable. They have a great post sharing five Twitter applications for using video. Now these applications can be used to create video tweets but some of them can also be used to manage photos. How cool is that.

I just posted a video this morning using Twiddeo but I am excited about trying the other applications. So enjoy this post featuring Twitter video applications.

Simple Yet Powerful Twitter Tips for Twitterland And Your Twitter Town

Hello Twitter Twitter Town-How are you Today?

Hello My Little Twitter Town-How Are You Today?

I am still learning each time I read a Tweet on Twitter or make a mistake. Yet, there are bloggers like Problogger who has mastered some great Twitter techniques. For example, I attempt to post things that folks that follow me might want to hear. But I am careful to take time and retweet interesting tweets that are appearing at that moment.

When you think about it Twitter is just like face to face discussions in a group. When I facilitate a group I am careful to encourage the silent folks in the group to say something. At the same time I try to discourage domination by one or two people in the group.

In addition, most groups work best when the size is small and not huge. So, I am not under compulsion to have a BIG TWITTER LIST.

Well, I never want to be the person who just talks about me, me and more me in a group.  Nor, do I want to be the quiet person all the time that does not feel my content has worth. So, those things stay on my mind when I am on Twitter.

Of course, I must admit, sometimes I go on Twitter when I feel like the pixels in my brain are frozen from fatigue. Then Twitter becomes therapy.

Enjoy this post by Darren Rowse who is one of the most authentic bloggers I know that makes real money blogging. When he talks about Twitter and blogging-I listen.

Facebook Usage By Countries

Here is an eye-popping look at Facebook usage by Countries. This comprehensive analysis was done by a veteran blogger and public relations specialist, Nick Burcher.Note that the author used advertising information from Facebook for the statistical source.

An interesting challenge is to write down several country names, i.e., France, Italy, Russia, China, USA. Place a number next to each country with your estimation of usage. Then look at the chart and see how close you were to the reported number.

Read this post and the resulting comments about Facebook use in different countries.

Search Keywords, Niches, and Blogging Best on New Search Engine

Same Point is a great search engine that will gives you a unique slant on social networking.

I like it because it also gives a Twitter, Linkedin and other social networks your searches are related to. For example, just search on blogging and see what explodes.

Oh, they are also in BETA, that means they are still doing a great job of getting the bugs out and welcome your feedback.

If anyone else has new experiences please share them.

Have fun!

My Baby Boomer Twitter Connections-@MarcMiddleton

Today I took a good look at Marc Middleton, Founder of the awesome site Growing Bolder. Now why do I appreciate this Twitter connection? Ok, I am so glad you asked. I have 3 reasons listed below.

1. I adore his background because he is dancing. I think all baby boomers should dance, especially between blogging if you can. If not move your shoulders, neck and whatever else can move ever hour at the computer.

2. He is following most of the folks who are following him.

3/ I was reminded to revisit his site. I joined in March, 2008 but it is so bare bones. So I must go in and add meat to those skinny bones. The meat will be adding my blogs to the 882 listed. Joining in the discussions. Viewing the videos and audios and perhaps adding to them.

So follow him because he has some good Tweets and also join his site, Growing Bolder!

Start Tweeting With My Twitter Baby Boomer Connections

I am meeting so many great, genius and  “get  up and going folks” on Twitter.  So I decided this New Years Eve to chart some of my Twitter connections. I will post some of the great references and insights from Tweets and sites by those who I am following or who are following me.

If you are not on Twitter you are really missing some great gems and resources that are presented 24 hours a day. It is a networking and information power-packed pool. A watering hole that experts often gather.

So tonight I want to share a post on SEO that was on the blog of a couple, Brent and Reba. I just followed Reba only 60 minutes ago. From the time I thanked her for following me to the time of this post I have been hanging out on their site listening to their post and signing up for the service that allows you to listen to a post. I was also checking out other great features and plugins they have added to their site. You  can learn so much about blogging just by observing what others are doing.

I am following Reba and she is following me. Her site is Internet Marketing Boomer. Read what about her and the reason why she started her online efforts. Then, check out one her excellent post she did on Search Engine Optimization.

Reba says:

There’s so much to talk about, I don’t know where to start. But I better get in gear because you’re here for a reason and I don’t need to be hemmin’ and hawin’, huh?

Well, first things first, I’ll give you a little background on why I’m excited about what we’re doing here. Brent can make his own post.

I’ve been working on the internet for over ten years now. It started when I bought my first HTML editor, Microsoft Front Page 97 and from that point forward, I was hooked. First I built websites for other companies, but that only lasted a year or so as I wanted to build sites for ME. Brent and I owned a wholesale company that sold stuffed animals to the amusement industry and I was getting bored. This internet stuff was so much fun, I wanted to just do that!

So ever since that time I’ve been piddling around trying to make money online and have never quite gotten it right. Every time I thought I was on to something, something would change or I’d get bored because the money was slow to come and I again would quit. Well, let’s face reality, it was me and my impatience, I never had the tenacity to hang in there and just MAKE IT WORK.

Well let me tell you, this time, I’m going to MAKE IT WORK and while everyone watches right here!

I’m a member of that great generation that was born between 1946 and 1964. Yes, I’m a member of the generation that made America what it is today. According to the Wikipedia, I’m a “Trailing Edge Boomer” or “Late Boomer” since I was born in 1959. I really like the “Late Boomer” label as that’s what I am in Internet Marketing as well, I’ve been online for 10 years and still haven’t Boomed! Yes, it’s taken me 10 years to realize and understand my role as an internet marketer, yes, I’m a “Late Boomer”.

As a Baby Boomer my concerns include things like:

  1. thinking about retirement that is just around the corner
  2. taking care of an aging parent
  3. making sure my kids graduate from college and preying they do it without too much debt
  4. working all day in a workforce where young fresh minds could replace me at a moments notice
  5. trying to turn my internet hobby into a full-time business
  6. and the list goes on, add a comment and let’s discuss your concerns as a Boomer

And that’s why I’m here. I want to share what I learn about internet marketing with others who want to become financially independent with their own company using the internet. I’ll share what works and what doesn’t, what products are good and which ones aren’t, and I’ll give you info on the latest fads and the latest crap.

There’s so much information on the internet about internet marketing that it’s mind boggling, it’s a full-time job keeping up with it all and I hope to make it my full-time job some day soon. But what will be different about the information I give, is I will filter it from a Boomer’s perspective assessing cost, risk level, time investment to outcome ratio, and much more.

I’m looking forward to this new journey with a group of people that “see things the way I see them”.

Thanks for following me Reba!
