#bloggersdoitbetter - First time chat hosting!

Hello everyone! A few weeks ago on the 8th of August I hosted my very first twitter chat! For those of you that don't know what this is it's a chat that takes part on twitter under a hash-tag. I hosted the #bloggersdoitbetter chat and I really enjoyed it!

For those that didn't take part the topic for the chat was getting your blog out there. It really is an interesting topic especially for those just starting to blog. Personally I thought it was lovely seeing bloggers share tips and tricks...particularly with those just starting out as I remember how lost I was at the beginning! Heck I'm still lost from time to time!

Towards the end of the chat I asked for some feedback on my performance as a host which I have dotted throughout this post.

I loved that people acknowledged my efforts to try and reply to everyone as I really did try to reply to everyone that tweeted me! Or at least acknowledge a tweet with a cheeky favorite!

Since it was my first time hosting I managed to learn a lot from the experience. I realized just how fast people tweet replies and how many come through when you are hosting! It made me gain new respect for those that host chats on a regular basis!

Overall I loved the experience and I hope to be hosting again soon!

For those that took part in the chat thank you so much for your participation! A big thank you to all those that provided me with feedback and an even bigger thank you to those new readers who found me through the chat!

For those that don't take part in the chats currently I thoroughly recommend that you do. They are a great place to meet fellow bloggers and share ideas. If you are ever in a bit of a blogging slump they are also great to gain back some motivation!

    1. I've missed them recently - over the past few weeks I've been moving and i have had no internet other than mobile internet! So I have been missing a lot of them!
