But there's more, lots more, that most writers can and should do:

- Freelance writers should be spreading the love by retweeting their magazines/ezines tweets - your editors will see your interest in them and appreciate it. Also keeps your name out front.
- Published authors can retweet their publishers' tweets. Creates feelings that you care about them, not just you and your book. After all, if they do well, so will you.
- Instead of lists for #FF (Follow Friday) and #WW (Writers Wednesday), etc., choose a couple of colleagues each week and give a reason why others should follow them. This has a far higher conversion rate into new followers for your peers than just Twitter names: #WW @goodwriter, @travelbug, etc.
- Spread your markets' Facebook entries with the "Share" button.
- Link your colleagues' blogposts to your Facebook page and Twitter.
- Invite colleagues to write a guest post for your blog or a piece for your e-newsletter.
Name of the game: GIVE LOTS!
