Blogathon Twitter Party Info (June 2013)

 Twitter Party Schedule for June 2013 Blogathon

Once again we will have SIX Twitter parties. Attend all six if you want or just one or two. I tried to change up the times this time.

It’s Easy to Join

All you need to join in is a twitter account and a way to follow the chat. I recommend TweetChat, Tweet Grid (tweetgrid is gone), Tweetdeck, Hootsuite, Twitter.com (not recommended) or some other way. It is possible to do twitter chats on a mobile device but I’m told it’s harder so unless you are an adept typist on your device, I don’t recommend it.

You can access the Tweetchat #blogathon2 room. Tweetchat has been updated since our last blogathon. The hashtag is added automatically. You can click on feature and add your own username and my username (@blogathon2) so that our tweets will be in bold and it will be easier to spot replies to you and tweets from me (host.)

Tweetgrid is gone so you are best to use tweet chat unless you are familiar with using something else.

You can also try Twubs although I’ve not really used it. Give it some time to load past tweets before tweeting anything.

When Are the Parties?

*All times are in EST/EDT

Friday June 21 4PM 10PM
Saturday June 22 3PM (Topic: Content Creation) 9PM (Topic: Blog Rules/Laws/Guidelines)
Sunday June 23 1PM (Topic: Time/Attention Management) 9PM (Topic: Working With Brands)

 

The times are more flexible so those in different time zones can hopefully find a time that works for them. However this means it’s harder to remember when the next twitter party is so make sure you write it down and post it up near your work space or set a phone alarm.

Prizes!

Once again Steph from Hearts and Laserbeams (@hrtsnlaserbeams) has some of her SEO for Bloggers Ebooks as prizes. 18 will be given away in the twitter parties (three each) and seven will be regular prizes. Also two DIY Blog Critique’s from MomComm (@MelACulbertson)will be given away at the Saturday and Sunday evening parties. Two more will be given away as regular prizes.

It’s Twitter Party Time!

Last year participants wanted more twitter parties so this time there are SIX! You can attend all if you want to but it’s mainly so that those who are busy certain times will still have a chance to join in.

I originally was going to make them at different times but then realized I needed to schedule them for when I was able to host. Since I don’t have a babysitter this year, they are scheduled during nap time and bed time (for my house anyways.)

It’s Easy to Join

All you need to join in is a twitter account and a browser set to tweetgrid. Alternatives are TweetChat, Tweetdeck or Hootsuite, Twitter.com (not recommended) or some other way. It is possible to do twitter chats on a mobile device but I’m told it’s harder so unless you are an adept typist on your device, I don’t recommend it.

You can use this direct link the TweetGrid #blogathon2 room. All you have to do is login through TweetGrid and add your username to the far most right column. Your tweets will automatically add the #blogathon2 hashtag so there is no need to add it manually.

Prizes!!

Thanks to @hrtsnlaserbeams for donating 20 copies of her Easy SEO for Blogger e-book as prizes for the twitter parties! It’s PDF format so you don’t have to have an e-reader and it’s 10 pages long with screenshots so if you can’t read lots of text on the screen, you should be okay. Since it’s digitally delivered, it’s open worldwide! Perfect!
