On my work Twitter @SLam49ers, I just hit over 1,000 followers. That’s pretty exciting. Last week, I barely had 650 followers but with the NFL season rolling around and props from other beat writers and mentions, I’m over 1,000.
I guess to me it’s kinda important because I did my own promotion. I didn’t have a newspaper, sports channel or anything promote me. I just had to pay my dues with my reporting to get the attention from the followers.
Of course, 1,000 followers doesn’t mean I only have 1,000 people reading my work. But at least it’s cool that 1,000 people care to read my work. And I like think I’m making a difference.
Now off to bed…
