Let's create a twitter storm on Fibro Awareness

Creating a twitterstorm on twitter
Tweets getting ready to fly on twitter

Are you on Twitter? Then join in with other fibro bloggers and tweeters to create a twitter storm.

What is a Twitter storm?

A Twitter storm is an increase in activity surrounding one specific topic on Twitter and ours will be Fibro.
Using one hashtag, the tweet quickly spreads all around the world as people are notified of the message and then reuse the hashtag in tweets and retweets.

Techopedia explains Twitterstorm

When a specific tweet and hashtag are tweeted and retweeted quickly enough, the hashtag is included on Twitter's "trending" list and displayed to all Twitter users, even those who are not a member of the hashtag user's list of followers. This often leads to the original message or hashtag crossing to other social media sites or the mainstream media, resulting in much deeper penetration into the collective conscience.

A Twitter storm is a good way to quickly spread awareness. 

We just need to decide the day for our twitter storm and the hashtag e.g. FibroAwareness 

If you would like to join in the twitter storm around Fibromyalgia simply add your twitter tag (e.g. @fibrobloggers) in the comments.

If you prefer you can contact me on twitter using #infibrostorm

Join in for Pain Awareness Month at Fibro Bloggers

pain awareness month
Hi everyone,
In September you can join in with Fibro Bloggers Directory on promoting understanding of pain that people with fibromyalgia experience.
If you have a post about pain please share it here (in comments) so we can compile it into a resource for everyone to understand the types of fibro pain that exist.
On twitter you can share your tweets about pain under #fibropain or you can retweet our tweets.
On facebook, tumblr we have picture quotes that you can share and use in your posts. 
On pinterest we have fibro boards already and have started a new one called Pain Awareness. This is a community board which means you can post there. Please have a look.
We hope you are inspired to help others so they can get real stories about fibro pain from real people.

We are a tribe

Have you heard of the idea of a blogging tribe? A tribe is a group of like-minded people and that is what Fibro Blogger Directory is all about.
Having a blogging tribe takes the concept of a blogging community to another level so that it is more supportive, more personal, more of a community.

There are lots of great people here on Fibro Blogger Directory and they all have a lot in common with you. Besides having fibromyalgia and blogging about it they are looking to get their posts read and shared too, just like you and me. Sharing cool blog posts is a great way to help each other, interact, feel good and spread the fibro message.

So why not visit a few blogs on the Directory and if you find one you like share it through your social media. Do you have twitter,  facebook,  pinterest or tumblr? You can connect with us there.


Following fibro on facebook

fibromyalgia awareness writers

Are you on facebook?
This is a great way to share stories and resources and promote your blog.
If you would like to post your stories to the facebook page of Fibro Bloggers Directory just like us on facebook.
We would love to promote your facebook page and your fibro posts. We will also be having some competitions on facebook next month with some comforting prizes.

Connecting with the fibro community also helps to promote fibromyalgia awareness...the world really does need to realize how many people have fibromyalgia with real faces and real blogs and real stories not just statistics. "Together everyone achieves more. There are no limits to what we can accomplish together." W. Amos

Fibro Bloggers Unite


Connect with other bloggers by commenting on their blogs, visiting their blogs and following their blogs. This is advice that gets included in almost every post ever written on how to grow a blog’s visitors. This seems pretty basic to me but maybe some people just don't get it so I have written here, in point form, the benefits of visiting other fibro bloggers blogs both from how you benefit and how the condition of Fibromyalgia benefits.

Visiting other peoples blogs makes your own blog stronger:
  • Leaving comments gets you new readers.
  • Following "brands" your blog and gets you exposure.
  • Educates you on what makes a good post and a good blog.
  • Helps you see what topics are engaging audiences.
  • Helps you see what you have to offer that others don't.
Visiting other people's blogs:
  • Provides a united front.
  • Helps everyone see Fibromyalgia has many faces and voices; we are a large group, a strong group, a supportive group. 
  • Convinces the world to see there are a lot of people connecting and talking about Fibromyalgia ( "maybe they are not crazy, maybe there is something to this, maybe we should listen, maybe we will do something about this!")

I have left the MOST IMPORTANT POINT till last:  as chronic pain sufferers, visiting other's blogs helps us get a connection with others, we see other real people going through the same things as us and we do not feel so alone.
So whether you want to help your own blog get more readers or help the cause of Fibromyalgia please visit other Fibro Bloggers blogs. We have made it easy for you here - just go to the Directory and visit one or two (or more) a day. Thank you for your continued support.
