Today I was delivering a presentation focusing on my other venture into the blogosphere rainycitytales, to a range of arts and culture organisations from across Lancashire. The aim was to present my tweeting and blogging as a case study for the positive impacts of social media, and even how if you start small big things can happen.

Putting the presentation together I took a look at the analytics for the rainycitytales blog and was surprised to find that 43% of referrals came from Twitter. I had expected it to be a significant percentage but perhaps not this high… I guess it proves that conversations really do count.

Therefore for the Twitter-holics out there and in the aim of encouraging dialogue and engagement please check out and chat to:

@Rose_Theatre – The Rose Theatre at Edge Hill University in Ormskirk. A 200 seater venue hosting in the region of 75 productions each year.

@HorseandBamboo – An award winning theatre company that tours nationally and internationally as well as serving the local community in Rossendale.

@Grand_Theatre – Blackpool’s famous theatre at the seaside.

@MoreMusic1 – Works throughout Lancashire undertaking music projects with a diverse group of people of varying musical abilities.

@TheDukesTheatre – A fantastic venue in Lancaster comprising of three theatre spaces, gallery and cafe bar (I can highly recommend the food!).
