Ever since I started using Buffer to schedule my tweets, I've been on Twitter regularly. I share inspirational quotes and items related to beading and jewelry, books and writing, and crafty/handmade businesses. I generally don't share this information on Facebook or anywhere else. I tweet twice a day or so; I promise you won't get overwhelmed following me.
Here's a sample of what I've shared since mid-April:
"Don't look at your feet to see if you are doing it right. Just dance."
- Anne Lamott
"Do one thing every day that scares you.”
- Eleanor Roosevelt
"Ideas are like rabbits. You get a couple and learn how to handle them, and pretty soon you have a dozen."
- John Steinbeck
"What you do makes a difference, and you have to decide what kind of difference you want to make."
- Jane Goodall
