Hi and thanks for the visit. If you're new here you may want to subscribe to my blog via email..

Twitter club for birders. We need a logo! Anyone can come up with something?

Twitter club for birders. We need a logo! Anyone can come up with something?

Long overdue, mainly because the birth of my daughter Anahi a month ago and a very busy birdtour season here in Peru. Someone said on my facebook that I should enjoy and not feel bad about this since I have my priorities straight.

  • RT @SoaringFalcon1 Great photos of fledglings and juveniles, but no baby Quail. http://bit.ly/2Dr2W
  • RT @DawnFine I am not a bird! http://bit.ly/M4C0K
  • RT @journowl Uncommon foe keeps albatross from skies http://bit.ly/9ryLS (had122 clikcs prior to tweetclub launch)
  • RT @birdfreak – Bird Cliches – What the Heck is the Catbird Seat – http://bit.ly/FGKrE (had 85 hits prior to tweetclub launch)
  • RT @gwendolen Write a vulture blog NOW. http://bit.ly/34XjO (had195 clicks prior to tweetclub launch)
  • RT @kolibrix 10 best ways to avoid chiggers when birding in South America. http://bit.ly/25Qeo

That is it. Let’s tweet.

UPDATE:

Results of last tweetclub #003.

Here are the proofs that this really works to drive traffic to your blog.  During a week the participants of the tweetclub retweets the articles posted here minimum 3 times. It is important to use the bit.ly link provided, so that I can measure the click success.

The winner is Dawn Fine with her post on “How to make a digiscope adaptor”.  Noticable that all participants got more than 100 clicks. What if we would have been 15 or 20 particpants?

Leave a link below to the next tweetclub. Hopefully presented by Thursday next week – if my priorities don’t get in the way :-) .

I’m waaaay behind on this due to time, but thesis will be done in a couple of months and birds will be priority again :)
And of course, blogging, twitting, and so on…

Hey Gunnar,

I hope I am following the instructions correctly for your Tweet-Club. Am I doing it right? Do I need to do anything else?

Thanks-Kevin

I haven’t been too active on blogging lately, but my intention is to be an active blogger soon again…

Gunnar Engblom September 6, 2009 at 8:49 pm

Hi Kevin, Janet and Olli

Thanks for willing to participate. However, send me links of specific posts, not just your blog link.
The posts should be such that you think it would interest a lot of people. It should have some WOW factor. Maybe a great photo, or something funny or a stunning video. The idea is to get people to retweet the post, not only the people that participate in the Blogger’s Tweetclub.
Check the links above for the previous Blogger’s Tweeclub for the instructions.

Hey Gunnar, nice to see you back ;-) I have been very busy myself but I wondered about you. Glad to hear all is well with you. My contribution for 004:

@soaringfalcon1 http://bit.ly/2Bx6Zi Will the Burrowing Owl Survive?

Thanks all for the RTs!

Gunnar Engblom September 7, 2009 at 4:47 pm

Thanks Larry,
It also serves as example for Kevin, Janet and Olli.
The only correction is that it would be Tweet Club #005. Although, I admit we should not have too great hopes on the present tweetclub producing much after so late arrival. Dawn is in the outback and not tweeting much and Gwendolen’s post sort of expired, although she has promised to keep the vulture blog festival open this week.
But 005 should be strong if Kevin, Janet and Olli also get their contributions ready..

Hi Gunnar,

Thank you for the clarification on the thread postings. I will work on duck migration and a few nice finds at the local park in my town. Also, September is a great time for macrophotography of spider webs that are very evident in the cool foggy mornings here in Metro Detroit, MI. Will get those blog postings ready for next time.

Ok. Well, many have seen this already, but this is a classic anyway:

Hi Gunnar,

Glad to have you back and looking forward to continuing Tweet Club. I should have my post ready Thursday morning, so hopefully I can slide it in before it’s too late.

Gunnar Engblom September 10, 2009 at 10:28 am

Hi Scott.

Feel free to reuse something old. This is partly the idea with the tweet club. To brush off the dust of some old stuff that you would like more people to read.
I will post the tweetclub when I minimum 5 posts. If you and Kevin (Bird Explorers) get your posts done, it should be today.

Scott September 10, 2009 at 3:18 pm

Hi Gunnar,

Sorry for the delay, but finally posted for Tweet Club
