After a lot of planning and plotting I finally managed to update this tweet:

But someone had to be a winner!
@jyothisdayout @richa_singh BLOGGING? That’s the only thing that clubs all together! 🙂
Blogging it is!
@richa_singh Feb 21
Book your time this Tuesday 9 pm. One hour of chatting up #blogs and #blogging. Use hashtag #blogchatter
For a while I had been planning and plotting to start a twitter chat on blogs and blogging. When I ran a bit of my own search it revealed that it is in fact a very less used topic for twitter chats. Which of course inspired me further!
Let us start with some basics?
What is a twitter chat?
Web Definition: Interactive conversation at a specific time on Twitter.
Pointers to follow:
- Always use the hashtag while discussing the topics during chat, in our case #blogchatter
- To discover what others are talking about during the hour, search the hashtag again in our case #blogchatter
- Make attempts to go beyond your following/followers list and engage with people. This way you can get a wider perspective of the discussion.
- Agree to disagree, always.
- And yes not to forget have fun!
What is #blogchatter?
#blogchatter is an attempt to connect bloggers and readers on the common platform of blogging. Confused? Well seems like that to me too. Who all can join?
- Bloggers (of course!)
- And people who have no clue what is blogging!
- Yes even those who are running or are interested in corporate blogging
- Basically also anyone who likes to chat 🙂
#blogchatter is all about discussion involving the whys, whats and hows of blogging. How we can write better, how we can connect better, how we can figure out blogs better and yes on the whole how can we all together proceed toward a better blogging experience.
So see you there? On Tuesday sharp at nine pm IST.
This is super cool! Explains it all. Looking forward to 9 pm of Tuesday now! 🙂
Me too Shilpa 😀
This looks super exciting! Tuesday 9p.m. onwards it is!
Yes it is 😀 Me very excited!
So looking forward to #Blogchatter….people make way!!
haha yes people make way 😀 *drum rolls*
Informative post, will be online at 9 p m on Tuesday for sure 🙂 Thanks
Thanks Sulekkha hope to see you there 🙂
I’m going to use this # on my next blog!
Thanks Nick 🙂

Visiting from UBC. http://bit.ly/JBC6am
I hope you come to be a part of it too Francene 🙂
I haven’t heard of it! I need to use the hashtag!
Well I hope you enjoy it too Sophie 🙂
Looking at the title I had Kolaveri Di playing in my head as I read your post, Richa. See you on Tuesday at 9! 🙂
Kolaceri D 😀 hehe nice song yo!
9pm India Standard Time – looks like where I live is 10 1/2 hours behind you so I’ll be working (or sleeping) here in New York State, in the U.S. One thing I do love about blogging is the opportunity to interact with people around the world but it also reminds us how big our world is. Hope you have fun. Visiting from UBC, Alana ramblinwitham.blogspot.com
Yes true that is another amazing part of blogging 😀
This looks interesting.. 😀
Hoping to see you there too!
Bad timing for me but will try to catch up the fag end. Sounds like such fun. Will try out my brand new twitter ID!!
Aww do try please!
Yes it is 😀 Hope to see you there then!
Oh darn I’ll be travelling tomorrow!
Ohhh don’t say that! 🙁
Ah this is exciting! I’ll be at work, but shall try to make it somehow 🙂
See you there!
Thanks would look forward to it 🙂
Ehm ehm. Seems interesting. Will try and make it, though I’m quite a “non-twitter-er”
Would look forward to it 🙂
I have never participated in one of these before! Interesting. Not sure I would know where to begin.
I am sure you would love it Kathy 🙂
Sounds like a grand idea– only problem I have is it will be 11.30 in SG and early bird me will be asleep!
Aww Perhaps provide an exception to the rule for Tuesday 😀
I missed this time.. will try to join next time..
Will look forward to your participation 🙂
Great initiative Richa. I so wanted to attend the chat. Had calender and reminder set up too. But got caught up at a friend’s house. Looking forward to next week. I tried to find all five questions you posted but couldn’t find in sea of tweets. Let me know if you can. First visit to your blog. From the name of it, are you a Harry Potter fan? I actually feel like accidentally exported to this muggle world 🙂 Harry Potter kept the kid inside me alive. Anyway nice connecting with you. Looking forward to knowing you better.
Yes I am a huge harry potter fan 😀
Tuesday? Shit I missed it 🙁
Its alright, there is one next week too! And in all the coming weeks 😀
Shit! How did I missed it…. :/
Well now hoping that you will not 🙂
That’s a good initiative….I am not very regular on Twitter…But will try to be there on Tuesdays….
Hoping to see you there then 🙂
This is goood 🙂
Nice initiative. Will get in touch with you bloggers soon 🙂
Count me in ..for the next round 🙂
I now came to know a about how it began. The group because of whom I use twitter. I joined it at time when it had already bloomed.
