So it is now Wednesday morning, and I am thinking about the song Like a G6. This week is just flying by faster than a Gulfstream VI (that’s what the song is about, Silly).
Another week is halfway done, but this week has been fun so far! I committed to being on Twitter as much as I can. Less meeting, more tweeting. Remember this is all about my Journey to 1 Million Tweets.
Monday we found out that our good friend @upstatemelissa got engaged to her high school sweetheart: he picked her up, brought her to their old school and then got on one knee…how romantic.
Everyone here seemed to have fun with the Stinky IT Guy who magically stunk up our office (which is two floors, by the way) except for me. I seriously felt like I was being punk’d and that @aplusk was following us around the office ready to jump out. I even asked @oldspice and @kathygriffin to send me the Old Spice man. Didn’t happen for me…so much for Twitter customer service.
I helped some people save money with some amazing deals yesterday. We are well over 10,000 active coupons – that is #fabulous. Remember: if you need something, we are here for you.
We did get some amazing entries in our I Am #fabulous Contest, which is making us beam with pride to actually see our fabulous followers in action – you make us all so proud!
My goal is simple for our team here: we want to know all of you, at least a name. :)
I decided I wanted to let my office air out – yes, it was that bad – and do the GTC (Gym Twitter Coupon) from home today. What a grand idea.
Our new friend @hairgirl1966 told us about her worst hair cut. Do you know there is a Mentor, Ohio?
@grumpy1970 entertained us with pictures of crazy animals. You need to see the albino alligator – super spooky! And there really is a “liger.”
But today was all about learning the Science of Timing, the big webcast about social media by @danzarrella. It was going to be my time to shine! For the last 3 weeks I have been tweeting maybe 300 or 400 a day (and I think I am not doing enough)… Then Dan speaks and says that 23 tweets in a day is a lot……Whoa, Nelly! I tweet 23 times in, maybe, 30 minutes. All of sudden my life just flashed before my eyes. Am I gonna get fired? Do people not like what I am doing? Good thing I am at home today… ’cause this isn’t job security.
He does say to tweet more though…not sure what to think now.
Deep inside I know our aim is true: We want to help; we want to be here for our followers… It just feels right. One good thing if I were to only tweet 23 times a day: I would be employed for 8700 weeks to finish my journey.
It is right!
I now have 981,118 tweets to go to a Million, I wonder who I am gonna meet next.
P.S. I suggested giving away another iPad for our next contest, but they asked me why. Help me out here, peeps. What should I tell them?
