So. Twitter. I was quite a reluctant tweeter to begin with. I started, in December, having been convinced by quite a few people that it's not actually that confusing, and that it's invaluable for networking with other bloggers, and that actually, it's quite fun. So I hesitantly agreed to give it a try.
Three months down the line, and I'm no prolific twit. Last week, the boy had to explain to me what hashtagging was for. To date, I have sent 183 tweets, follow 73 people, and have 39 followers (one friend, lots of other bloggers, a few brands, and oddly, a man who claims to be the Deputy Editor of Men's Health. #Weird).
However, I do love Twitter. Here are a few reasons.
- It's actually a really fun and convenient way to chat to other bloggers, and find new blogs to read
- It's a great way to find out about promotions and deals (hello, ASOS free delivery...)
- Mondo Guerra re-tweeted me. This made me massively excited.
Yesterday, whilst browsing the intershopz, I came across a t-shirt from Hero & Cape which really tickled my pickle, bespectacled nerd that I am.
I tweeted Hero & Cape to tell them how much I liked the design, and they got back to me this morning, telling me that for I could get 25% off the RRP (£22) with the discount code MEGAMARCH.
So I bought it.
If you're not aware of Hero & Cape, they're a British label that use hand-drawn designs and individually print them on top quality cotton t-shirts. And for the next two days, you too could save yourself 25% with the code MEGAMARCH.
So, what are you waiting for? Get over there and give their shop a gander!
