Out There

I was patting myself on the back – a good yoga exercise đŸ˜‰ for having no trouble writing a post each day. Then, last night nothing came.

But I felt guilty. My blog guru says the way to keep my public profile is to post every day.

But what if my muse doesn’t speak to me?

Writing is a discipline like placing yourself on the yoga mat each day, but blog writing can also overlap with marketing. I don’t want to write just to keep my face in front of you. Gotta have something to say.

Do you find that these days the social networking stuff seems like it’s tipping more and more toward selling products or causes.

If I key #yoga into Twitter, all I see is “come to my Carribean retreat” or “buy my yogi skin rejuvenator” or “join us in Central Park to see if we can get 10,000 yogis doing 108 salutes”. Oh, please!

Okay, I had to give it a whirl. I wrote for all the Twitterverse to see: “check out The Art Of Adjustment by Eve Grzybowski on http://www.liveyogalife.com”

It seems the Twitter marketing formula is: tweet your product 5 or 6 times in a row, sort of like Telly Tubbies who repeated everything twice for the 2-yr. olds watching. I was too shy to do that, so it’s not surprising I didn’t hear back from anyone.

Sigh.

Not to appear too much of a curmudgeon, I actually think tweeting is fun. I’d you want follow me, I’m yogaeve on twitter.

  1. all the great blogs (like yours) that I read dont have to be updated every day, in fact it makes me check it more if I don’t know when it’ll be updated…just that hint of uncertainty makes it more alluring! but that’s just me đŸ˜‰ xx

    • Good point, Richard. (And thanks for the compliment!) XO E.
