Twitter has been the latest trend in social media network marketing. For those of you that don't know how twitter really works you are truly missing out on something huge. What ever your use for twitter it can help you meet other people that have the same interests as you. Twitter can help you gain an income that you may have never thought imaginable. It can and will bring more traffic to your website when used to it's fullest potential. Twitter is currently the fastest growing internet network marketing source on the web. You will find all types of people from all walks of life around the world that tweet on twitter. If you don't know what a tweet is, it is a short little sentence about what your doing in 140 characters or less. Here are some different types of tweeters you may encounter on twitter.
  1. One Timers - Those that sign up but never use it again.
  2. Occasional Users - Are those that use it once a month or less and for special occasions.
  3. Weekly Users - Are those that will tweet up to a few times a week but never daily
  4. Daily Users - Are those that use it at least once a day, sometimes will take weekends off.
  5. Extreme Users - Are those that use twitter every day and use all avenues and devices to tweet such as cell phone, Facebook, MySpace, Squidoo etc.
To be successful with twitter you should maximize the usage. This is one of the easiest things you can do that doesn't consume a lot of time.
  • Send a text message and tweet from your cell phone.
  • Link your twitter account to other network marketing sites. You can tweet remotely from these sites.
  • Follow everyone that follows you. By doing this you will create a snowball effect and get more traffic to your website.
There are many other ways to maximize twitter. How and when you use it can determine how successful you are. I initially started as a Weekly user, then graduated to a Daily user. When I was a weekly user I found that very few people were watching me and the amount of users were under 20. Since then I have graduated to a Daily user, my traffic on my website has more than doubled as well as the amount of people that watch me. I wen from 15 watchers up to 60 watchers in less than a one month period. I found that this was producing much more exceptionable results. So do you tweet? Which type of user are you? Find out what twitter grade is. I am trying the Extreme User method. Follow me on twitter and I will let you know how it works out in about a month.

Can your dog climb a tree?

These pictures were taken last weekend in an apple orchard where we were picking apples with family. Daisy somehow was fascinated by this tree. She had previously tried to climb a tree once before to go after a squirrel. I don't know if she thought anything was up there, but she got up in that tree without anyone to help her. She turned around on the tree limb and tried to get down. We did have to help her down. Daisy was too scared to come down on her own. I will be posting a video on YouTube.

Economic Crisis: How low is the market going to go?

The announce of the stock market crash on September 15, 2008 marketed the largest crash since 9-11, 2001. As most of us know the stock market has continued to crash everyday since. What most people don't know is the bailout plan was the government's way of placing a band-aid on a very large wound already in progress, to hopefully prevent a recession. If that happens, the depression would be larger than the great depression of 1929. Once a recession starts it usually takes many years to recover. This makes you wonder how low is the market going to go? I think unfortunately a recession has already hit. Many people are in denial. With Banks collapsing among other businesses. This leaves the next five years very uncertain. We need to figure out a better way to prepare for the future. Now in our country there is a record number of foreclosures, billions of people have no retirement and thousands of people are currently unemployed. This gives you some things to think about doesn't it. Here is what other people are saying about our economic crisis.
