What do you do when you can't tweet your blog posts? You cry, scream and fall to your knees and say, "Why me?" Just kidding. :) I'm not going to lie. I really felt like doing that but we all know that wasn't going to solve anything. My problem was still going to be there regardless. When I first realized that I couldn't tweet my blog posts. I immediately contacted Twitter. They said Ucoz sites were distributing malware and they gave me some sites to look at. Of course, I didn't know anything about those sites.
I then preceded to contact Ucoz. Ucoz said that there were some Ucoz sites that had malware on them and because of that Twitter has blocked all domains from Ucoz because they consider all Ucoz websites as one. So, if you were trying to tweet my blog and you got an error message when you tweeted it and it would not go through this is the reason. Ucoz said they are trying to resolve the problem with Twitter.
Just in case you are wondering my blog doesn't have any malware problems. So, it's safe. You can still share my blog posts on Google+ and other social networks. I would really appreciate it.
Thanks in advance!
So, what am I doing since I can't use Twitter like I used to. However, I just figured out a way that I can tweet my blog post using Triberr. I login into Triberr. Click on your tribe mine is called,"Blogging For Success" grab the url and paste in into the compose area of Twitter. You have just tweeted your blog post. You can see my blog post is at the top. There are downsides to this method though. You must have a tribe at Triberr for this to work and it shows not only your blog post but other members of the tribe as well. Also, people can only retweet the tweet that you tweeted and they can't use any of Twitter's share buttons. You win some and you lose some.:) Join my tribe if you already aren't a member. I would love to have you.
I still always believe in diversifying. You never know what will happen. I am a firm believer of not putting all of your eggs in one basket. Well, I am using the social networks in this blog post that I wrote last year called, "5 Social Networks That You Might Not Know About And Now You Do So Start Using Them". I am also still using Bizsugar.com and I recently have started using Kinnged.com. So, all hope is not lost. You should also join the sites in the blog post. If you haven't already joined Kinnged.com go ahead and join them too.
I am so happy that I have diversified myself as I never thought this would happen. As I stated above diversification is key. For good reason too. I like Twitter but there are other people using other social sites as well and you will pick up some new friends and followers. Like my favorite blogger Lynn Terry says, "You have to go where your target market is". I admit I wasn't spending as much time at those other social media sites as I probably should have. Now, I have more time to.
Will I still be using Twitter? You bet! I can still tweet my fellow bloggers blogs which I was doing before and will continue to do so. I can still also share other content that I find interesting. It's not the end of the road for me. It's just now been re routed a little bit but the show must go on!
This could happen to anyone. Things happen and your plans get changed but their is always a way if their is a will. I will let you all know when the problem with Twitter gets resolved. I will send out a tweet and post it on my Google+ profile. I just wanted to let you all know what was going on.
If this happens to you which I hope it never does. I hope that this will be helpful for you.
