    I'm a Chiropodist in Worcestershire, England. I work part time for a national company and I run my own home visit podiatrist service which I enjoy.

    Hope to contribute where I can to the forum.


    P.S. I recently started a twitter page for my musings here: http://twitter.com/#!/LilypadPodiatry I don't have many followers yet so welcome to say hi :)

    Welcome to Podiatry Arena Rebecca

    Perhaps the reason you don't have many followers is that you have only been a member for a week. Twitter is a world of its own, and there are various strategies to increasing your followers - and asking for them isn't one of them ;) My advice would be:

    - Have your full name on there* - people want to interact with people not pseudonyms
    - Start following people who have like minded interests as you - learn how to make effective use of 're-tweeting' and use it to your advantage (i.e. to gain more followers)
    - Try and say something interesting - you have to give people a reason to want to follow you (and stay following you)

    These things take time, so don't be too hard on yourself 8 days in.

    *This applies to your website too - prospective patients want to know who you are.

    Hello Ian,

    Thanks for your advice... I need to get a professional photo done first, I aim to change the site around a bit too and set up a testimonials page maybe.
