Why I like Plurk Over Twitter
For a little over a year now I have used Plurk instead of Twitter. Why? If you never used Plurk before, I have to tell ya that it is more personable and fun then Twitter. Someone actually responds to your plurks. Unlike Twitter, you can have over a 1000 followers and the chances of any of your followers seeing your plurks during the course of the day is next to 0. Unless they are on at the same time then there is a chance your tweets will be seen. And to be honest, I don't think anyone gives a crap about what I have to say on Twitter. If I advertise just one time in a course of a week, I will lose up to 4 followers just because of one advertisement I did.
So what is so special about Plurk? Well Plurks is a social networking site just like Twitter, the only difference is that your friends get to see what you say based on your timeline. If someone missed it, all they have to do is click on my name and follow my timeline and what I have been saying the entire day and they can even respond.
I have met some really wonderful people that I sell with on Artfire and Etsy. I have established some really great friends and have been a good listener for over a year now and has kept me sane throughout the day. I have learned a great day about so many different things and have learned about their lives too. My friends are both from the US and overseas in the UK, Australia and Germany. They are just a bunch of funny and great gals to chat with. I know I may have missed some but they are not forgotten.
So I have to give a shot out to some of my good friends at Plurk and stop by their shops. You will not be disappointed.
