#BlogHour™ is a Twitter Tweet Chat which runs every Tuesday evening between 9 and 10 pm GMT.
Everyone is welcome to join regardless of whether they are new or experienced bloggers and whatever their motivation for blogging.
It is an opportunity to share hints and tips, connect and network with bloggers and promote your blog and latest posts.
#BlogHour is organised by @ukblogawards but often has guest hosts too. Some weeks there are specific topics for discussion but often it is just a general chat about all things blogging in a supportive and friendly environment.
To get involved simply join in the conversation! This is how it unfolds:
@ukblogawards will post a tweet e.g.
Q1 from @bloggerrequired > what have been the biggest changes to your blog? #BlogHour
You may want to RT and then reply or post an answer. It helps if you reply A1 #BlogHour in your response so we keep track of the question you are answering and so you can see other people’s replies.
Don’t forget to use the hashtag so other #BlogHour followers can see your tweets (unless you are going off topic/it is not related to the chat).
Things can move very quickly so you may want to RT or favourite tweets that interest you so you don’t lose them in your stream.
RTs are an accepted way to support tweets and share with your followers. Alternatively you can RT and then @ mention them with your comment using the hashtag if you don’t have enough characters to fit it all into one tweet.
#BlogHour is a great opportunity to make new friends and follow others who share your love of blogging. We hope that it will grow your followers and encourage visits to your blog.
Don’t forget to share with your followers that you will be taking part so they can join too if they wish!
