How I quickly built a Twitter Following: Crowdfire interviews Steve Miller

In the past year, I’ve successfully built my Twitter following from 600 to over 24,600 at the time of this post (December 2015). Additionally, I increased my blog visits by 2300%.

This success caught the eye of Crowdfire, a company that produces a tool I use to help build my Twitter followers. They were intrigued by the growth but more importantly, they liked my story of early retirement and wanted to post an interview that explains my story and how I’ve used Crowdfire to build a community of Twitter followers.

The Crowdfire Interview

Here is the story, I hope you enjoy it.

#ArticleOfTheDay: 3 Issues That Scare Appreneurs, But Shouldn’t

If you are a regular reader of this blog, you know that I am an #appreneur (an entrepreneur that focuses on app development) and am working on bringing my first app to the Apple App Store (coming very soon).  It is important to me to share my experiences and to let you know how others are doing in app development.

Written by Chris Meier, today’s article talks about 3 things that tend to scare people away from app development. I generally agree with Chris’s observations.

In my experience thus far, I would say that it is a bit more complicated than some people lead you to believe. For example, you really have to learn some new skills. You need to be able to create a good RFP, you need to have a vision of what the app should look like and how it will operate, you have to be tech savvy enough to learn software well enough to make your job easier.

But I do believe that most people can do it. If you are a self-starter, willing to learn/adapt, and somewhat computer savvy, you can certainly do it.
