These are my most shared or favorite’d (liked, hearted), and clicked tweets from last night what other people liked best of what I’ve offered.

Buffer’s dashboard lets me see the stats of my Tweets timeline, or I can choose most popular, most reach, most clicks, or most likes.

As has been developing for me, there’s a nice variety of interests that did well, images and excerpts.

These are the very top over the Saturday through last night over our Memorial Day weekend.  And to all my fellow vets, thank you for being there (smiles).

Thanks everyone so much for sharing and liking these tweets. They’re fun to do, and even more fun when folks enjoy them also (smiles).

My Most Recent Top Tweets – One Liner Excerpts @FelipeAdanLerma 052716

These are my most shared or favorite’d (liked, hearted), and clicked tweets from last night what other people liked best of what I’ve offered.

Day before, new images I’d uploaded to Fine Art America dominated my Top Tweets.

Yesterday it was One Liner excerpts from Queen the Serial Novel.

Probably due to both their timing on my schedule, and their content, they drew enough RTs I even received an email from Buffer letting me know how well they were doing:)

One Liners are tricky but a lot of fun.

In context they hint or explain a great deal.

As excerpts they  entice with their possibilities!

My Most Recent Top Tweets – Yoga Paris and Faith @FelipeAdanLerma 052616

Fine Art America – http://felipeadan-lerma.pixels.com/

Here, from yesterday morning into this morning, are my most shared or favorite’d (liked, hearted), and clicked tweets – what other people liked best of what I’ve offered.

Excerpts from my thriller novels and shorts usually dominate my Top Tweets, but yesterday, after several days of new releases on Fine Art America tweets of my images took the top slots!

Soon I’ll be resuming my excerpts and one liners from Queen the Serial Novel, and I expect the interest-pendulum will swing again (smiles).

Then eventually, I’ll begin working on & uploading my treasured Paris images (sigh – smile) and we’ll see how the tweets swing then…

Buffer’s dashboard includes  free stats for each tweet (easily seen below each tweet in my dashboard and in the re-posts below) calling the best my Top Tweets. This is the icon I created when isolating them in my timeline on Twitter –

Top Tweet @FelipeAdanLerma*

Only posted a few days, A Yoga Teacher is drawing the kind of views yoga itself deserves. I’m just fortunate enough to have gone back into yoga about five years ago (via Sheila’s encouragement). I’ve only tried to capture some of the magic I’ve felt practicing this ancient art. That yoga has been made even better via today’s modern discoveries about health and our bodies and minds, is a huge bonus.

*

My Paris image on this nice handbag via Fine Art America is like opening the door to fresh air, always a surprise and smile at the beauty of man and nature side be side. Well, across the river from each other (smiles).

*

Nearly as popular is this great night view of Place Saint-Michel in Paris. Between the night lights, fountain, and lovers embraced in a kiss in the foreground, this is an image that goes around and around.

*

The image of my painting Austin at Night continues to ring true for this vibrant city we live in struggling to stay humane and hip, yet embrace the traffic and technology so indicative of the energy here. I hope to have a new night image of Austin up soon, taken at my oldest granddaughter’s graduation (from UT) reception.

*

And last, my newest image-writing, Faith. I worked on the background several days, wanting to keep a first-glance impression of deep-flatness of space..but nuance suggestions just enough to catch the eye without spoiling the effect. Only up since yesterday evening, it’s drawing attention, but too soon to say how it’ll trend yet.

Here, from yesterday morning into this morning, are my most shared or favorite’d (liked, hearted), and clicked tweets – what other people liked best of what I’ve offered.

With two previous days of postings my Top Tweets on my site, it’s easy to see there’s some type-favorites: excerpts from my stories, certain images – plus – a new sample of re-releasing some older poetry and sayings in a new format via Fine Art America.

Buffer’s dashboard includes  free stats for each tweet (easily seen below each tweet in my dashboard) calls, my Top Tweets. This is the icon I created when isolating them in my timeline on Twitter –

Top Tweet @FelipeAdanLerma*

This tweet had appeared earlier yesterday morning (featured in my Top Tweets post yesterday) and reposted in my Timeline later in the day and again earned Top Tweet – much thanks to writer Mike Billington for his review of Dirty Sixth Street Austin (smiles).

*

Not posted in a while but consistently well received is my image of Notre Dame early November, a bit of fall foliage still lingering. Posted early afternoon, this is also a good example of how my images can be used @FineArtAmerica. I had tweeted this along with excerpts from a short story about yoga and family set in Paris, Eiffel Tower Pose on Family Yoga Day. This image is also the cover image for my small love-poetry-travel images book, Love’s Travels: Vermont Paris Austin. I’m very fortunate, getting to use my content in all kinds of related ways (smiles).

*

Early evening I posted several excerpts from One Night in the Hill Country, two of which became Top Tweets. It seems quite a few excerpts from my novella have been well received, so am very grateful I’ve the social media avenue to post them here also.

*

A Top Tweet yesterday like Mike Billington’s review excerpt top of this post, it’s repost late last night, and insertion among other One Night in the Hill Country tweets, like those above, must have helped this location-image shot for the book also be a repeat Top Tweet. I took the image about twelve years ago when Sheila and I took a day trip to Lost Maples out in the hill country. So very different from the coastal lands of Houston and Galveston I grew up in, and so very beautiful – the sky was actually this color (smiles).

With only one previous day of posting my Top Tweets on my site, it is still easy to see there’s some type-favorites: excerpts from my stories – and – a hint of the variety of what I have to offer also begins to become apparent (smiles).

So here, I present what Buffer, in their free stats for each tweet (easily seen below each tweet in my dashboard) calls, my Top Tweets. This is the icon I created when isolating them in my timeline on Twitter –

Top Tweet @FelipeAdanLerma*

What’s interesting here is that many times, my good night or good morning tweet is a favorite! I guess the short summaries of what I got done or plan to do is helpful. I know it helps keep me on track, lol!:)

*

It would seem book excerpts are a safe bet, yet if they aren’t interesting, that shows up pretty quickly also:) I’ve been releasing a new chapter excerpt from One Night in the Hill Country, Mon-Fri (78 chapters total) for awhile now. The final chapter excerpt will release early June, then all the excerpts can go on string or random rotations on my Twitter schedule (something I can also set up on Buffer).

*

This tweet appeared several hours after the one above on my Timeline, and had other tweets besides the Chapter 65 excerpt in-between.

*

This tweet, and the next image-tweet, of original images I have in Fine Art America, have gratefully been consistently welcomed.

*

This image, Austin at Night, tweeted six hours later, early this morning.

*

And this review, of the same book as the excerpts above, for One Night in the Hill Country, is by an American author, Mike Billington, living in Spain. It appeared a couple hours after Austin at Night above.

Interesting there was a time I bounced tweets off from my blog, never looked to see how they appeared, if they were retweeted, liked, or the links (if any) clicked on (smiles).

Now, I relish Twitter’s simplicity and wealth of options.

Now, rather than choosing what to have tweeted from my posts, I’m choosing what to post from my tweets:)

Here, with my most shared or favorite’d (liked, hearted), and clicked tweets, I can share what other people liked best of what I’ve offered.

And as many of my old time blog readers and friends know, my interest are wide and varied – though threads of beauty and compassion and thought still shrine through.

So here, I present what Buffer, in their free stats for each tweet (easily seen below each tweet in my dashboard) calls, my Top Tweets. This is the icon I created when isolating them in my timeline on Twitter –

My Two Top Tweets in May – From the Heart @FelipeAdanLerma 053116

June 01, 2016

Fine Art America – http://felipeadan-lerma.pixels.com/

My Two Top Tweets in May 2016

These are my most shared or favorite’d (liked, hearted), and clicked tweets from all of May what other people liked best of what I’ve offered.

Buffer’s dashboard lets me choose which stats to see, from popular to most clicks, and these two topped the rest:)

What’s interesting and gratifying for me is you, the viewer/reader, choose both an excerpt from one of my thrillers, and an image.

Both slant from the heart with overt or embedded homage to romance (smiles).

One is an image of Paris, the other from Queen the Serial Novel.

I’ve quite a few “favorite scenes” in my Vermont thriller, Queen the Serial Novel, and this snippet when Antone (age 18) finally gets away for a few minutes from his younger cousins, is both short (a One Liner excerpt) and romantic.

This is an inspiration photo of my wife and I enjoying the festival in Vermont (smiles) –

It was a welcome surprise to see one of my original images competing well for attention also. And with Paris is late autumn glory, it’s not hard to see this is an image also appealing to the heart and romance.

Several years ago I had already chosen this image as the cover for a short image-poetry travel-memoir about love:)

Tentative Takeaways –

  • Both tweets, and variations of them, have repeatedly come up as daily Top Tweets
  • Romance appeals, in words and images, in thrillers and on handbags:)
  • My usual higher RT late night hours did not apply here

I want to thank all my followers and others who happened by on these tweets and either liked or shared or clicked on them.

It is, I believe, a deeply appreciated confirmation of being able to share our most deeply valued interests with others.

Thank you!

Twitter Recap for @felipeadanlerma 040816

April 08, 2016

SLThrillers tag ad copy

Well it’s taken “way” longer to post again than I’d hoped.

And no less busy today, morning cervical PT then pick up the 3 yr old for an overnight 1st time in several weeks – but hey, I’ve got this new Twitter recap format (smiles).

Every day I come across or create something I think would be fun to repost here on the site. Can’t get them all down, but here’s a few.

Google last month (just saw this today) has made an image editing software that’d run over a hundred dollars before, FREE. Haven’t tried it out yet, but worth checking out based on the article’s sample imaging.

//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js

I’ve also begun to upload my original photo and art (paintings) images to Fine Art America. They can print on demand (POD) from images. Choices include canvas prints, greeting cards, acrylic or metal reproductions, and even licensing. Very excited about trying this out.

//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js

As able I’ll even be tweeting an image to match the settings in my thriller fiction stories, so one can have an image to go with the excerpt from the book.

Here’s my excerpt tweet from Queen the Serial Novel Book 17, plus the image tweet posted shortly after.

A reminder: all the links in the original tweets should be live here, PLUS, you can like (heart) a tweet if you like it, AND you can also follow me on Twitter from this page. Very neat:)

That’s it for today, gotta go, thank so much ya’ll (smiles)

Twitter Recap for @felipeadanlerma

March 30, 2016

SLThrillers tag ad copy

I’m gonna try out a new format for my blog posts.

Since I spend most of my time on Twitter now, at least vs FB & my website, I thought I’d try out an idea I read recently.

Basically, every few days, or as often as seems best, I can embed hand and picked tweets from the day or previous day, and give folks an idea what I’m up to, what I found interesting from other folk, and generally anything that appeals.

So today, along with daily excerpt releases I tweet from two of my thrillers, One Night in the Hill Country and Queen the Serial Novel, I was fortunate to have a respected writer, SallyAnn Phillips, post a question & answer interview she asked to do with me. It’s fairly comprehensive but broken down into easy to read bites:)

The links in the tweet are live. You can go to Sally’s Twitter page: @_SallyannP or to her site with the interview: https://t.co/TL99oxpWEx .

As you can see, you can like (heart) the tweet, and even re-tweet (RT) and Follow me! Nice:)

The only other tweet I’ll post this time, since I’m just learning the new WordPress format, is one of my one-liner excerpts, also from today :

In between days I don’t post on my site, I’ll post something similar on Facebook, and see how that goes too.

If you can, let me know what you think. It’d be super helpful:)

Thanks so much,

Leap Day Adapalooza – Twitter Ads

ClockManZappShootEric is the person I got inspiration to return to Twitter, but this time with ideas of how to use images, which, as an artist since itty bitty, I love!

Presented are 32 examples of how to combine images and text in creative ways, in image sizes for Twitter.

Included is a short commentary about the image / text ad.

I hope you’ll pop over to his site & catch the rest:)

Eric Lahti

A couple months ago I put up a post on designing Twitter ads for writers. Hopefully a few people got something useful out of it, even if it was just a few ideas about things you can do. To celebrate Leap Day – which isn’t even a National Holiday, go figure – I figured I’d show off some of the ads I’ve come up with over the past couple months. If anyone’s interested in getting some ads done, please feel free to contact me.

For the most part the ads I’ve done have been created with open source software and licensed images. Always make sure to use licensed images; they’re not that expensive and, if you get good ones, can be reused in a variety of ways.

Software:

  • Inkscape (Free vector image editor. I use it for text work and layout)
  • GIMP (Free bitmap editor. I use it for…
