twitter_power_joel_comm_150Forget driving followers to purchase with our without a special offer. All the reasons cited in Day 23 – December 6, 2009 (Sun): Drive Followers to Purchase a Special Offer remain valid on Day 26. Here’s a more interesting thing I did. @mikefixs told me about twitalyzer.com. This is a neat little tool that rates your Twitter presence on a variety of scales. You don’t have to buy into its rating philosophy, but it’s good to review and consider. For example, it’s not all about followers. Twitalyzer gives you credit when you retweet or are retweeted, among other things. Take a look. At least it’ll cause you to think.

Hey, I finally did send an @message to @CoachJudy. It was late at night, so I’ll have to give it a day to see if she responds. The biggest news: @joelcomm decided to follow me. Of course, I followed back and asked how he liked my experiment. This, too, was late at night, so I’ll suspect I’ll have to wait for a response.

I’ve continue to notice I’m getting a lot of really odd followers from places all over the world. I think they’re marketers, so I’m not following them. When they unfollow in less than 24 hours (or even less than 36 hours) they confirm my suspicion. What’s the point of having 60,000 followers? What can you possibly get them to do? That’s the story I want to hear.

Tomorrow’s the really big day. That’s when I attempt to drive readers to my blog ChrisCarosa.com. I suggest you stay tuned…

How many followers do you think I’ll have after 30 days?

twitter_power_joel_comm_150That was fun while it lasted. So last night’s plan looks like it fizzled. Maybe not. Remember, the above statistics reflect only those few hours from late last night to early this morning. No doubt folks are just now receiving their new follower lists.

In other news, CoachJudy still hasn’t followed. That disappoints me. She usually keeps her word. She’s also usually on the ball in terms of her social media presence.

Here’s the reality for today: After spending much of the end of last week preparing for culmination of my year-long the IYA2009 outreach project the beginning of the year – the final top ten countdown of AstronomyTop100.com presentation at the Strasenburgh Planetarium last Friday evening; and then after immediately going to work with the GearFreeze kids over the weekend for Sunday’s  Finger Lakes First Lego League Regional Championships at the University of Rochester; I concluded I needed to spend some quality time with my laptop at the office. In truth, work’s been a relaxing relief through all the buzz of last week. I really like my work. I can’t tell you about it (government regulations prevent me from doing so), but it does offer loads of fun.

Here’s the result: I’m switching today’s step with Thursday’s. So, today I’m having fun. I’ll drive followers to a blog (my blog) on Thursday. I hope Joel Comm doesn’t mind.

twitter_power_joel_comm_150I must admit, I actually started doing this a few days before in anticipation of robotics consuming my day today. That’s correct, gentle reader, no sooner had I completed one major event, but it was smack dab right into another. Talk about jumping out of the frying pan and into the fire!  Come to think of it, fire does have a mesmerizing ability. Perhaps you’d first like a glimpse at the fire before returning to the experiment.
