Twitter Trending is indicative of what topics are being talked about on the Internet more than most other trending systems such as Google Trends.
There are a few different ways to see the Twitter Trends
Google Trends is one of my favorite pages. Next to reading my RSS subscriptions, Google Trends gives me more ideas than anything else. It is always interesting to see what exact phrases people are using in their searches, and what the hot topics of the day are.
Looking at Trends today made me realize you could easily make a menu for a Holiday from the results.
Just look at the list of food on the page today and you can easily see what people are making for their Easter lunch or dinner.
I would be curious to hear how traffic spikes for people with Food sites on a weekend like this?

That chart really got my attention. I had no idea that Twitter was that popular, or that the term Micro Blogging was coming into it’s own.
Micro Blogging probably has a good chance of staying with us. Just look at what the younger generations do. They do not use full Blogs and Email to communicate. Typically they use Facebook and MySpace to blog and communicate with others.
When my teenagers say they are checking messages, that means they are looking at their Facebook and/or MySpace pages.
Put Micro Blogging on your list for 2008.
Same theory, different words. For years I have listened to business consultants say “Plan your work, work your plan”. A blog is no different. You just have to decide what it is you want to accomplish. Some bloggers just want people reading their blog, others want to make money blogging. Whatever the goal, managing your resources is a valuable key.
I work with a few bloggers very closely, and I see and hear the same thing often. “I can’t keep up”. The interesting part is that this same statement comes from a variety of blogger types.
I work a full time job, 50-55 hours a week, I own at least 60 domain names, and have 10+ blogs and websites that I am working.If you have more than one site, you need to manage your time and resources. Here are a few things I do that help me keep it all rolling.
With this plan of attack I have been able to keep my full time job and get my online income to go from $25 to $2000 a month. And don’t kid yourself, luck plays a part in all of this too. And I have been lucky at times over the last couple years. But if you want to take advantage of luck, you have to be prepared. Are you prepared?
