When I think about my week, and the time of day I enjoy most, it’s when blogger chats are on. If you’re unaware, blogger chats are an hour long (normally) networking hour for bloggers, taking place on various Twitter accounts, to give you an opportunity to tell those in attendance who you are, what you love and much much more.
Unsure of what chats on and when? Click here for my chat schedule.
So, in true John’s Road to Volunteering style, I thought about sharing my thoughts on why blogger chats are amazing, but you hear me ramble on too much, so I’m joined by some awesome people to give you an insight into why you should get involved in chats.
Great for finding new blogs. – Kayleigh
When you’re involved in a chat, the beauty is you’re never going to see the same people in them all the time. As there’s so many chats, there’s a lot of opportunity to discover new blogs to read, and to find more bloggers to have a chin wag with.
A friendly open safe space – Saffron
Being around a group of people you might not have necessarily been in conversation with before can be daunting. I think all the ladies in today’s post can agree with me there. Whether you’re new to chats or a chat veteran like myself, you know the people in the chat have your back, and you’re welcome to say how you feel.
Interaction with a great community – Courtney
I was scared when I started chats, I won’t lie, but as Kayleigh, Saffron and Courtney have already pointed out, the interaction in chats, is absolutely incredible! I’m not sure I’ve been involved in anything like it!
Meeting so many fabulous people! – Mo
Mo is talking about me here! (I kid) But in all seriousness, all of us in this chat all connected through chats. If they weren’t around I wouldn’t know what to do with myself, and I don’t think the blogging world would be the same.
meeting like minded people, community, support, meeting new friends and motivating – Shannon
When you add everything in this post together, motivation is a key reason why I get involved in chats. Chats are amazing to not only get to know other bloggers, but it’s a chance to get a real buzz from what everyone’s achieved and planning.
Support, collaboration, motivation, positivity & fun – Laura
Chats are what made this post happen and collaborations happens when you meet people who support you. The ladies featured in this post have been absolute incredible supporters of John’s Road to Volunteering, and it’s been a pleasure writing this post with them all.
Chats are a great way to make friends, connect with brands (depending on the chat you take part in) and more importantly…great for developing a/the community.
Kayleigh, Saffron, Courtney, Mo, Shannon, Laura, thank you all for being amazing individuals and for sharing your thoughts in today’s post.
I hope everyone has enjoyed today’s post, and maybe leave below your thoughts on why blogger chats are amazing…
