Twitter Chats - What & When? // TIPS & TRICKS

I would say that my number one source of blog traffic is from Twitter, largely thanks to the various blogger chats! If you didn't already know what a blogger chat on Twitter is - you use a certain hashtags at a set time on a set day and talk to other bloggers using the same hashtag. The chats typically last an hour long, and are at the same time every week. There are lots of chats for all sorts of bloggers and vloggers, whether you write/talk about fashion, beauty, lifestlyle, parenthood or food, anything really!

There will often be a topic, picked by the chat host, such as your favourite summer travel essentials, but the topics vary for every chat and for some chats there is no topic at all, you just have a general talk. At the end of the hour you then share you link out with anybody who asks (a little tip - if you only want to see the tweets of the people asking for links, let's say in the #fbloggers chat, just search "#fbloggers links"), which is a great way of getting your blog recognised, especially when you're a newbie! You may also find some new reads of your own, because I know that I definitely have.

Aside from the traffic side of things, Twitter chats are also an amazing way to make some new blogger friends and find people with similar interests to you. I will often ask during the #bbloggers chat for product suggestions and opinions on any products that I am on the lookout for, maybe a nice MAC eyeshadow shade! Although be warned that you may come away from a chat with a very big blogger-inflicted wishlist.

There are loads of blogger chats, so I've written a list of some of the main ones and a little information about each! As a note too, when I say there is a topic every week this is usually true, but the person who runs the chat may decide that it's just a general chat that week, so keep any eye out for that.

  12. I absolutely love blogger chats too - I get a tonne of traffic from them on top of great advice and loads of post inspiration! Made so many blogger friends too! There's one that just started on Mondays called #zchat on Monday nights from 9pm that's really interesting - tackles issues like body issues!

  14. The #bbloggers chats are definitely my favourite and the first ones I joined in with. Although there was a period at the end of last year where I fell out of love with the Wednesday chat because it was just taken over by people spamming their posts. I now regularly join in with #bdib #fblchat and occasionally #crazybloggers (which I don't believe you've mentioned here) when I'm not at the pub quiz! x

  20. Hi lovely,

    I am so glad you sent me your links! Recently I have not been using social media as much as I should be, hence why I asked for links... I wanted to read me blogs and meet new people. This is SO useful. I have just printed off the chat times so I can be prepared!

    Thank you!
