Monday’s Magical Top Ten #Tweethearts

Welcome to this week’s rendition of Top Ten #Tweethearts!  For more information about how to become a #tweetheart and be featured check out my link in the top right-hand corner.

And now….

Drum roll, please….

#1: @Momvantage is our first #Tweetheart this week.  She caught my eye when she tweeted about the newest post on her blog which is entitled “Why you may want to work with small to mid size bloggers rather than large bloggers.” Although it was an anomoynous guest post, I give her two thumbs up having the courage to post.  In a nutshell, the writer has concluded, based on her own market research within her company, that smaller bloggers may be more valuable when reviewing products.  The reason is due to relationship building.  I would have to strongly agree with this theory.  I’m a small blogger and building rapport with others is important.  The larger you become, the less time you have to truly learn about a company.  It’s just part of the role.  Take some time and read the post.  I think you’ll find that it’s very informative and a nice shout out for the little guys and gals. As a designer I must also add that the blog is easy on the eyes with trending graphics and glowing color palette.  Great job!

#2: Lately it seems that I’ve become more and more interested in writer’s of books. One of my newest followers @DanDeeLion1 grabbed my attention with their tagline. This mother-daughter duo uses their books to inspire children ages 0-20 to DREAM. BELIEVE, ACHIEVE! Golden! Just golden! What’s more, they are on a mission to help combat child abuse.  Some frightening statistics show that child abuse is on the rise.  Right now you can help out by ‘donating a tweet.’  Visit them on Twitter for more information! You’ll also find lots of good info and parenting inspiration on their Facebook page.

#3 Another author who is standing out to me is @RichardEyre. He and his wife Linda have released their newest book this passed week. ‘The Entitlement Trap-How to Rescue your child with a New Family System of Earning, Choosing, and Ownership.,” addresses how we can combat our children’s feelings of entitlement. I was most interested in this book because my children are hard workers and have more chores than most. One of the reasons we have farm animals is to provide them with a foundation for strong work ethic. However, we still see these little entitlement seeds growing in their minds. Although, I have not finished reading the book in it’s entirety, I will say that so far it’s been very informative with fantastic tips and ‘aha’ moments. I don’t expect anything less from the remainder of the book. Without giving away too much, I will say that they have also helped re-enforce my parenting confidence. We’ve long used the term ‘commission’ rather than ‘allowance,’ when paying our children for completing their chores. From Richard and Linda, I have learned that the word ‘allowance,’ is a welfare or entitlement term which promotes the idea of something for nothing. It’s nice to know we are doing some things correctly! Richard and Linda, THANK YOU for all you do! If you are interested in purchasing a copy of the book, I was able to find it on Barnesandnoble.com and it’s also on Amazon.com. A must read for any parent!

#4: Our fourth #Tweetheart is @momswhoblog, one of my newest followers on Tweeter.  Momswhoblog.com is a magazine of mothers who are active in social media. They promote this crazy, social media movement so many of us are embarking upon. In their About section they point out that moms are no longer given a version of motherhood based on the mass media and celebrity definition.  It’s true, raw and unapologetic.  Please join me in applauding their efforts!!

#5: The fourth #Tweetheart this week provides excellent internet marketing information on her website/blog. @ElaineEwilson is one of my newest followers and to that I am glad.  Her site is a wealth of knowledge and know-how when it comes to marketing on the internet. One of my favorite tips avoiding the “if you build-they would come” theory. You might have one of the finest looking sites with top-of-the-line shopping cart software BUT if you do not promote you WILL NOT be successful…so true!  Elaine also provides a free online traffic generator guide and a free email marketing series. So if you are looking for some guidance, I would recommend stopping by ElaineEvansWilson.com. Thank you for your generosity!

#6: @BlackHerefords is a rancher and agricultural columnist from Texas. I’ve appreciated his tweets communicating market trends in the cattle industry and more. Most recently his tweets have been a resource as he connects the rest of the world with the horrific realities Texans are facing. I feel it’s also important to note that, Pine Hill Ranch, is one of Texas oldest ranches.  I bet there is some rich heritage and history there!

#7: A great way to start your day is by visiting @CharInSC! This #Tweetheart provides numerous inspirational and positive, mood changing quotes. Including one of my favorite which she uses in her profile, “Life’s a climb, but the view is great!” You can even end your evening by reading her Tweets because she leaves you with a smile on your face! Thank you Char for brightening Twitterland!!

#8: If you are a frequent flyer of #Tweethearts and The Magic FarmHouse you should know that I am a lover of coffee.  When I see others who include coffee in their profiles, I’m naturally drawn to their Tweets.  Since my name is Jenny, I’m also drawn to anything related to Forest Gump.  @ImMamaGump scored twice with her profile and handle name.  Her tweets are short, sweet, to the point and the real deal. She doesn’t sugar coat life and I like it!  Congrats and thank you @ImMamaGump for the follow!

#9: Are you often discouraged by your lack of creativity? I think we all tend to come down with a version of creativity block. @RightBrainMom is a working mama who loves everything and anything that can help jump start her right brain, allowing for a massive amount of creative flow. Her tweets are right in line with this…she encourages us and our children to be positive by changing your mindset thus unleashing your creative power.  Here is one of her most recent tweeted quotes:

“All children are artists. The problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up.” ~Picasso

#10: Finally, we are at our #10 spot on this week’s Top Ten #Tweethearts! So exciting! This week our tenth #Tweetheart is also one of my new followers. It is @twowitwowoo! Who can miss a handle name like that? It stuck out in my inbox. I was pleasantly surprised when I found that she runs a social media/PR company, Mad As A March Hare. What sealed the deal? Click on this link to find out! Very encouraging to find someone similar to myself, who isn’t afraid to tell it like it is.

Congratulations to all of this week’s Top Ten #Tweethearts!! I sincerely hope this jump starts your Tuesday!!
