If you’re a blogger or WAHM you’re probably already familiar with all of the Twitter Chats For Moms, but did you know there are also some great Twitter Chats available for Bloggers, WAHM’s and other professionals? Aside from attending Twitter Chats to chat about breastfeeding and cloth diapers, you can also attend Twitter Chats that will help you better your personal and business blogging efforts, learn about social media marketing, converse with other bloggers/professionals and so much more. In just the past few weeks I’ve connected with some really awesome bloggers, written my first guest post, learned how to create a mobile app. for my blog and gone from 300 to over 800 fans on Facebook!
*If you are new to Twitter Chats, Lisa Barone wrote an excellent post on how to participate in Twitter Chats here.
I tried to find a good list of Twitter Chats for Bloggers & WAHM’s and came up empty handed. There is a spreadsheet that contains all of the hundreds of Twitter Chats available, but nothing specifically for bloggers & WAHM’s. So, to make finding a Twitter Chat easier for all of my favorite bloggers & WAHM’s, I put together this handy list of Twitter Chats For Bloggers & WAHM’s…

If you know of a great Twitter Chat for bloggers & WAHM’s that you don’t see on the list, please leave the details of the chat in a comment and I’ll be sure to add it to the list!
As a blogger, WAHM or other professional, Twitter Chats can help you learn new things, expand your network, build your credibility and get you seen in your target market. If you are new to Twitter Chats, try selecting one chat to attend each week until you get the hang of it. If the first chat you attend isn’t “for you”, don’t give up, there are a lot of great Twitter Chats out there, but it may take a few attempts before you find one that is right for you and your blog or business.
Once you find a chat that feels just right, interact, re-tweet any tweets you find interesting, and after the chat, go back and connect with the people you’d like to develop a relationship with. Most bloggers have a link to their blog posted on their Twitter profile, go check out their blog and post a comment to get a conversation going. It’s amazing what can develop from a conversation with someone you met on Twitter! For more tips, check out this post on Blog World where 26 brilliant bloggers share their best tips for getting the most out of Twitter Chats.
Have you met some really neat people, or learned something that made a big difference in your blog or business from a Twitter Chat? Are you new to Twitter Chats, and ready to give them a try? I’d love to hear your thought and experiences!
