I’ve had query letters on the brain lately…I suppose if I keep reading about how to write a great query letter, I’ll actually write a great query letter. So, as I’ve come across three wonderful resources, let’s tackle query letters. (Can’t I get a Wheee?)
No more excuses. Wheeeeeee!

I’ve been meaning to add the Twitter application to the old Hall of Fame for awhile, so today I did a little tweaking. And while I was flitting around, I came across a mess of Twitter applications.
But since this is Thursday’s Three, I’ll stick to applications having to do with finding like-minded folks out there on Twitter. Because it’s all about following the leader(s) and getting them to follow you back. And most importantly, finding out what they know.
Now, you can find similar applications on Twitter itself. But that’s a busy, busy place-and you might have to wait awhile. So, I thought I’d throw these out for you, give you a head start in the following business. Because there’s no thumb-twiddling at Twitter.

Ten years ago, I didn’t know what an URL was. And just about the time I figured them out, I mean really grasped the whole URL concept, the techies came along and decided to shorten them.
Techie types are always up to something, aren’t they? Fortunately, I don’t have to understand the concept of shorteners (because really, how can you explain why “Thursday’s Three: Url Shorteners” becomes jgyhtx?) All I need to understand is that short is better when it comes to tweeting, and all I need to grasp is one of these three shorteners:
1. bit.ly ….”Shorten, share, and track your links”
2. Tiny.cc…”Make a ridiculously long url, tiny”
3. budurl…”Shrink it. Spread it. Watch it Grow.”
Take your pick. Slap one on your blog. Kick up your heels and do a jig with it. And thank a techie today.
