July #4PUF

Ciao!

Something I don’t always remember/get time to do is publish my  4 Previously Untweeted Favourites at the end of each month, but this month I have! It’s a chance for me to pick a tweet from each week of the moth that I have favourited (now “loved”) for one reason or another. They usually reflect my interests, and last month was no different, with the topics being LGBTI+, cancer, mental health and assisted dying:

(4/4) Meet Chalice – the first  superherosuperherohttps://www.theguardian.com/books/2016/jul/04/first-transgender-superhero-chalice-alters-aftershock

(3/4) We want to see 75% of eligible people taking up invitations for bowel cancer screening

(2/4) Too many people are made to feel ashamed because of a mental health problem. Our new video:

(1/4) What can other countries’ experiences tell us about what might happen in Britain if assisted dying were legalised? http://www.kingsfund.org.uk/reports/thenhsif/what-if-assisted-dying-legalised/?utm_source=twitter&utm_medium=social&utm_term=thekingsfund

Hopefully you’ll find all of them informative and fingers crossed, interesting too!

As ever, thanks for reading.

#4PUF – What’s it all about?

Hey!

Happy Bank Holiday to those of you in the UK, and just happy Monday to those of you who aren’t!

Those of you that follow me on Twitter or Facebook might have seen that I retweeted a number of tweets this morning. At or near the end of each month I pick one tweet that I have liked from each week of the month and retweet them with the hashtag #4PUF4 Previously Untweeted Favourites. Now of course Twitter went and changed favourites to Likes, but hey…i’m not changing my hashtag! LOL!

Here are last months #4PUFs:

Proud to support – the campaign for LGBT inclusive sex education

about . Still working hard to reduce . Download our free for info & tips xgrassroots

: Just 3% of total govt health spending worldwide is for

All I want for my birthday is awareness PLEASE RTpancreatic

As you can see, the topics I like/favourite are pretty much the ones I tweet and blog about. There are just so many good articles out there its impossible to read/retweet/like them all!

I hope you enjoy reading them.

#TOTW, #TTT, #14TW, #4PUF & #TOTM – What are they all?

Ciao!

I’ve been away the weekend having a much needed spot of r n’ r down in my former university town of Aberystwyth! So as well as being a day later than usual, this week i’m just showing what all my #‘s are about for all my new followers – of which i’ve been lucky enough to get 23 in the last week alone!

I have 3 regular weekly tweets and 2 monthly tweets:

#TOTW or ‘Tweet Of The Week’ – is when I look back on the week’s tweets/retweets and pick something from amongst them, thus giving it another chance to gain the light of publicity! Usually i’ll do this on a Sunday +/- a day!

#TTT or ‘Ted Talk Tuesday’ – is when I pick a TED Talk, usually related to the things I tweet about, although occasionally not. There are so may interesting TED Talks available, it’s often hard to pick one!

#14TW or ‘One For The Weekend’ – is where I post either a photo, video or a link to a story that I think is fun or interesting and NOT related to my usual tweeting content.

#TOTM or ‘Tweet Of The Month’ – is something i’ve only done a couple of times now – purely because i’ve forgotten to do it! It may or may not be one of the #TOTWs from the month. I may just pick one of the tweets that I feel got missed and I want to highlight the issue again.

#4PUF or ‘Four Previously Untweeted Favourites‘ – I favourite tweets all the time, whether as a form of ‘like’ or just to bookmark them to return to later. I don’t always end up retweeting them. On the last Sunday of each month I aim to pick a tweet that I have favourited from each week of the month and retweet it.

So there you have it! It’s not difficult to follow. I just wanted to give my new followers an idea of what the regular #‘s mean. Feedback and comments are always welcome! Welcome to my new followers, I hope you enjoy my tweets and or blogs, and thank you to my existing followers who continue to read, retweet and share my blog with others. I literally would not be doing this without all your support!

Simples!
