Article: 10 Surprising New Twitter Stats To Help You Reach More Followers

I have been using Twitter since June 2012 but I still have so much to learn. I found the below article and I just had to share it. If you’re trying to attract more followers and grow your ‘brand’, then I recommend to take a look.

The point I found most useful was number 7: “Twitter users who mostly use a mobile device are 181% more likely to be on Twitter during their commute”. Now I know that this probably seems really obvious, but as I don’t have a smartphone, I tend to use Twitter once I’m home from work. If I had a smartphone, then I would definitely use it on the way to and from the office. Already from this article, I have learned that I’m at a disadvantage when trying to tweet about our books as the day is pretty much over by the time I get online. I guess one of my 2015 resolutions is to get a smartphone! Also, the time that I am tweeting the most in the week (around 6pm – 8pm) is not a great time to tweet as most people are having dinner around this time.

Take a look and let me know if any of the article was helpful for you 🙂

My favourite motivational quotes

Sometimes it can be so easy to let the negative things in life simply swallow you up and let yourself become a shell of a person, or let them totally take over your life to the point that you don’t know who you are anymore. I’ve found that motivational quotes that other people have featured on their blog posts have really helped me to gain some clarity on where I should be going, or simply made me think about things in a totally different way.

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do, so throw off the bowlines, sail away from safe harbor, catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore, Dream, Discover.
Mark Twain

Nothing is impossible, the word itself says, “I’m possible!”
Audrey Hepburn

It’s not the years in your life that count. It’s the life in your years.
Abraham Lincoln

Remember that not getting what you want is sometimes a wonderful stroke of luck.
Dalai Lama

How wonderful it is that nobody need wait a single moment before starting to improve the world.
Anne Frank

When one door of happiness closes, another opens, but often we look so long at the closed door that we do not see the one that has been opened for us.
Helen Keller

Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life.
Steve Jobs

I hope that these motivational quotes can help someone else, like they’ve helped me 🙂
