Short Stories in the Making

Twitter is my new best friend. I've met so many interesting bloggers via Twitter and honestly call them friends even though I only know them 'online'. The ones who answer a 'tweet' or a call for help amaze me no end.

When I need technical help, or a simple answer about a product, I know some kind soul somewhere in the world will answer my plea and usually help me solve my problem.

Yesterday, I needed a review of a new ebook and put out a request on Twitter - sure enough, an answer quickly came from Colleen Gough of Short Stories in the Making. She agreed to write a review - and within 24 hours completed it, posted it to her blog and did a great job.

Colleen writes from the heart. After reading only a few of her posts, I know she is truly a good person who appreciates each day and is thankful for her blessings. She is strong in her beliefs and no doubt a loyal, honest friend.

The Law of the Garbage Truck is one of Colleens recent posts and is one of my favorites. If you haven't read this story of the taxi driver who doesn't let other people's garbage ruin his day, you need to visit Colleen! She will inspire you to be tolerant and forgiving!

Thanks Twitter - for introducing me to Colleen!

I don't think there's much to get. The guy just didn't pronounce it right.

Twitter is fantastic. There was a competition on the Gadget show between Twitter and Facebook. The two presenters had to organise an event and then invite a lot of people - the person who had the most amount of attendees, won! TWITTER won

Twitter is absolutely amazing. I like the way stories are spreading quickly. With the ongoing revolution in Iran, many opposition followers are using Twitter to inform themselves about upcoming rallies or even to spread the world about police and military movement. Great tool, I agree.

I used to love V.C. Andrews. The ones she wrote completely by herself, as well as the ones that the ghostwriter finished, based on her notes, after her death, were great.

Thats pretty good. Stride is actually really clever with their video marketing. They have used youtube effectively to produce viral videos.

Great post. Deciding on what niche to target is one of the most difficult and important decisions that someone who wants to earn extra information from home can make. Good advice.
