Attention Twitterers: BBlog Chat

Pin It

Some of you use Twitter and some of you think Twitter is all about telling people what you had for breakfast but meaningful conversations can be had on Twitter. No, really! It's true.

For example, Followreader and Litchat are weekly hour long discussions related to publishing and writing that happen in real time on Twitter. I've learned a lot from these conversations. Now book bloggers will have their own opportunity to discuss topics near and dear to them with BBlog. BBlog is the brainchild of My Friend Amy. She wrangled a few of us into hosting this twice monthly event, starting with myself.

My topic is Reading Challenges and since this is the first discussion, I'm feeling a bit nervous. Please join us on Twitter tomorrow, June 16 with your questions and comments. It would really help me out!

Here's a few things to do to prepare:
  • Check out the BBlog Central blog.
  • Sign up or log in to Twitter on June 16, 8 pm EST (that will be 9 pm my time).
  • Follow me: @chrisbookarama.
  • Use the Hashtag #BBlog (this means typing #BBlog at the end of your comment so that people can follow the conversation).
  • Sign in to Tweetchat to follow the conversation more easily for that hour.
  • When the conversation starts, don't be shy! Jump right in.
 Hopefully I'll see you there!

  1. Have fun! I won't be able to 'play' - I have a dance recital to attend but I'll check back the next day and see what happened. :)

  2. I will try to come. Sounds like a blast. But it's right at dinner time here, so we'll see how it goes.

  6. I saw this post yesterday and my brain confused the times so I just caught the last 5 minutes but it seemed like a great discussion! I love this new idea for chatting about books on twitter.

  7. Oh, I wish I'd seen your post!! I saw the #bblog hashtag at Twitter, but I was playing catch-up and didn't bother to ask what it was about. Great idea! I've really enjoyed a lot of the book chats on Twitter, like #litchat.

Thanks for visiting! Please leave a comment. I've disabled Anonymous comments since I've had a barrage of Anon spam lately. Sorry about that.
Also, if you leave a legit comment but it contains a spammy link, it will not be published.
