Being a social media marketer for several different types of businesses I am always looking for good content to share with my social media networks.  One thing I notice often is that quotes are one of the most re-tweeted and shared types of content …. people love quotes and love to spread that love around!  I don’t know for sure the reason why people respond so well to quotes but I really think it is because we are all looking for some positive thoughts in our day to day life… the world can be a very scary and negative place and if sharing a positive or inspirational quote with someone throughout the day can make their day just a little brighter ~ I’m all for it! So please feel free to share these quotes with your readers and social media following.  Brighten someone’s day!

I also wanted to share with you a cool little trick I just learned from Michelle Schaeffer! Have you ever wondered how to add the “Tweet It” link into your blog posts (Me Too!) Well now I know Thanks to Michelle and her recent blog post “Make Your Own *Tweet It!* Page“.  I have used this trick to add the Tweet It link to all the quotes below so feel free to bookmark this page and come back any time you need some good quotes to share!
