Hello, my lovelies! Today’s post is the third instalment to my Newbie Student Bloggers Series, you can read the first two instalments here. It is also the first post related to using Social Media when being a blogger, particularly focusing on Twitter Blogger Chats!
What is a Blogger Chat?
A blogger chat is a scheduled public twitter chat, that is set around one unique hashtag in which this allows us to follow the discussion and participate in it. They are created by online blogger organisations in order to allow those who are participating to build connections with other bloggers who have similar interests, for example, #BBEAUTYCHAT is specifically for beauty bloggers.
The chats are usually recurring, sometimes even twice a week and on a specific topic to help us regularly connect with other with these interests. Everything from drugstore beauty, to confidence and sassiness.
They happen on a daily basis, and most often a blogger will be put in charge of hosting and asking set questions.
