Friday Feast: It’s transitioning over to Twitter

Published February 5, 2016   Posted in Friday Feast

Hey everyone and happy Friday! Instead of the normal Friday Feast, I am going to try a new format for a few weeks. Instead of publishing my traditional Friday Feast articles here on the blog, I am going to instead post them throughout the day on Twitter.

TwitterIf you aren’t already following me on Twitter, I would be truly honored if you gave me a follow:

twitter.com/ThinkSaveRetire

Here’s the deal – every Friday, my goal is to post a Tweet to one of the many excellent personal finance articles that I found this week. One post per hour, every hour, starting at 6am EST and ending at 10pm EST (I’m actually in the MST timezone but so many of my readers live out East, so thus, I build my schedule around them – yes, I  love you people).

Why make this change? Honestly, it saves time. As the blog gets more popular and I begin writing more around the Internet, I am slowly realizing that adding the Friday post to my regular Monday-Wednesday schedule here at ThinkSaveRetire.com might not be the best idea.

Am I getting burned out with blogging? Hell no! In fact, I get more and more energized as I become more involved in the community, and I want my energy to be used in the very best way possible. And for my Friday Feast posts, Twitter works wonderfully for this.

Technically, this is only a trial – I reserve the right to return to my traditional Friday Feast posts if they end up working better than using Twitter.  Only time will tell.

As always, thanks everyone for your awesome support – and here’s to another financially-productive week ahead!

    Well that sucks for people who don’t use twitter I guess. Making content less accessible is a thing now?

      I suppose it is when you’re comparing it to available time. We’ll see how it goes – if it works better here on the blog instead of Twitter, I’ll make it a priority to switch back. 🙂

    I am sad as well because I don’t have a twitter account either

      Don’t worry, it is looking more and more like I’m going to bring the Friday Feast’s back! The people spoke. 🙂

      You don’t need a Twitter account to follow someone’s tweets on Twitter, but you will need to reach the link Steve has provided to see updates, so one more link in your bookmarks.

      As a suggestion Steve, maybe you could add a twitter box ‘my latest tweets’ on your blog template? Thus your tweets would always be accessible.

  3. […] posting yesterday about using Twitter instead of the blog for my Friday Feasts, I received some feedback – both in the comments section of the article […]
