International Day of Senseless Tweets or short #idost

Monday mornings are a strange time: You want the weekend back no matter how much coffee you consume but it just does not work this way ;-).

That was exactly the mood I was in this morning so I started writing silly tweets like:

“…. today I follow the ancient art of “I can’t be bothered” ~ so just leave me alone!…..”


“… breakfast or not to breakfast this is not the question…..”.

That actually raised my mood enormously which made me feel the urge to declare the

“International Day of Senseless Tweets” or short #idost

I think the worldwide online community needs some cheering up now and then and it is soooooooooooo creative ;-).

So today I invite YOU to take part in our first #internationaldayofsenselesstweets or short #idost on your Twitter account.

Please feel free to add as many senseless tweets with the hashtag #idost or #internationaldayofsenselesstweets as you like and maybe ~

maybe we can make a hashtag trend :-).

You can also just tweet the following

“Please play with me :-): Tweet a senseless tweet with the # #internationaldayofsenselesstweets or #idost. Thanks for having fun!”

and invite all your followers to do the work ;-).

There is nothing to win ~ I know 😦 but it’s great fun and it might give you some brilliant inspiration!

I can’t wait to find out what comes from it :-)!

Gimme some #hashtags!

I have been reading a lot since last year about how to attract more readers to your blog or how to advertise for your story, book ect. Social media of course comes up a lot and I have been frolicking around Facebook, Twitter, WANAtribe, Stumbleupon ect.


But what has proven the most effective for my blogs and me is Twitter and the famous #hashtags. I was following the #amwriting hashtag and there was one article posted about #hashtags for writers and I was really surprised how  many are there:

Apparently there are 44 an author should know: 44 Essential Hashtags an Author should know

Besides #amwriting there are #amediting, #WordCount, #WritingTip ect. What do they do? If you are looking for interesting tweets about writing, want to get a writing prompt or find something good to read you can key in those hashtags in the search app at twitter and you get all the tweets that are live with these themes. I can not tell you how many interesting articles I have found there, how many writing tips and how many prompts.

Well, if you do not know about them already. Just go to 44 Essential Hashtags an Author should know and try them out!
