Round 2 of the Tweetclub is here.
The first birdbloggers Tweet Club was received well. In spite that, we got few people joining the second round, but many have promised to be back week 3. Surprise! Here is something that will bring more commitment and traffic to your blogs. I did tell you this last week, remember
Facebook Blog-sharing club.
If I share the most popular post (those that have gotten more than 100 clicks with the provided bit.ly link) on my Facebook wall, I hope that those of you belonging to the tweetclub and also are my facebook friends will click on the share button and also display the same link on your wall. We should not do all the Twitter club posts this way, but only those that have become most popular through Twitter. This could be a good reward for those participating in the Tweetclub, and carrot for all to try to submit posts that will become popular. (I repeat: the mixture of a smart title in the tweet and great pictures will lead to retweets – or something that is extremely useful to many people). If you are not Facebook friend with me already, please consider becoming one. Here is my Facebook link https://www.facebook.com/gunnar.engblom I welcome all birders, naturebloggers, marathon runners, post-punkrockers and Eminem-fans to become Facebook friends with me. …..errr…OK, Mom – who just got internet connection, family and other “real-life” friends are also welcome of course.
And the winners are….
Numbers of tweets to the supplied bit.ly link since publication on July 13.

That is 8 out of 14 that managed to get over 100 hits for a single post. And those that did not reach 100 had in any case at least 80 hits. Congratulations to all participants.
These winners will be “Facebooked” this week by myself. Everyone who reads this, please click on the “share” link for each blog I present to put it on your Facebook as well. I will let you know how many additional hits this experiment produced by next week. OK?
Birdbloggers Tweet Club #002.
That was a lot beating about the bush. At last, here are this weeks participants. It is easy because there are only five participants. Nobody should have any problems in retweeting all. Remember to use tweetlater to schedule your tweets for #birdsaturday and #ecomonday. Only my late tweeting (around 11 PM) of five selected posts for the last #ecomonday gave between 10 and 20 additional hits for each.
- RT @journowl The extremely cute Burrowing Owl stands small in Californian urban expansion. @journowl is fighting though https://bit.ly/xrepC
- RT @birdingdude Cool video: tiny Piping Plovers are pugnaciously chasing off the giant Oystercatcher. https://bit.ly/16NdeF

My humble contribution was first published on March 8. With this I want to highlight that if you have posts that you feel are worth a second look, there is absolutely nothing wrong with dusting some old treasures. Remember to post your contributions to Tweet club 3 at the comment section of this post. Other comments and thoughts are also well received.
Everybody tweet now!
