For yesterday's "Build A Blog Workshop" we talked about using Facebook to promote your blog. One of the other ways I like to get traffic to my blog is through Twitter.

Getting traffic this way is a little bit slower because you won't have a lot of followers right away, but now is a great time to start since your blog is still so new!

This is really one of the easiest things to do. If you don't have a Twitter account yet, go to and to create your new account:

1. Type your full name. (Use your real name)
2. Pick a username. Think of a good one because it will be seen by everyone who follows your tweets. (Mine is Briesauce)
3. Create a strong password.

Now just verify that you're human by re-typing the words you see there. After that, click "Create My Account". You can adjust your account settings after your account is created. You can also put your blog's link as your main site in the settings area.

I recommend that you start following your favorite comedians, actors, friends, and anyone else that you can think of with a Twitter account. Other people will find you, if you just put yourself out there. You can even follow me at

The more you tweet, the more followers you'll get. Followers = Traffic.

Come back tomorrow for Day 17 of the "Build A Blog Workshop". Until then, keep up the good work!
