Bloggiesta Twitter Chattin’

Those of you who couldn’t make it, I thought you might be interested in some of things we talked about during the Bloggiesta Twitter chats:

What we helped each other with:

  • G+: good or bad
  • Picmonkey for doing graphics and headers and collages
  • Best Book Blogger widget, for WordPress I think
  • Facebook: should you or shouldn’t you for your blog?
  • Business cards: what to include
  • How to chose which bloggers to follow
  • Feedly vs. Bloglovin’
  • NetGalley vs. Edelweiss
  • Headers
  • WordPress vs. Blogger
  • Are About Me pages necessary?
  • What’s best: getting comments on your blog, or getting responses from your comments on someone else’s blog?
  • Twitter platforms
  • How to organize review archives
  • Favorite bookish website
  • Upcoming book blogging events

What we want to see more of and need help with NEXT time:

  • How to be a better writer
  • How to brainstorm for post ideas
  • Adding disclaimers to review posts
  • Learn how to guest post
  • Learn about keywords and SEO
  • Learn basic code
  • Changing categories in WP
  •  We need a standard To Do list!
  • Social estate planning for our blogs
  • Understanding stats
  • How to better use social media
  • How to host a giveaway
  • Reviews: what it needs vs what people want

Things that would be cool:

  • subscribe by email to the Bloggiesta blog
  • actual lists of past challenges on the website
  • mini Twitter chats between events
  • maybe a Goodreads and Google+ group?
  • events announced sooner!
  • an email list perhaps
  • Facebook! (Done!)

Just a taste for what our Twitter chats are like! If you see something on this list that you would like to help with, please, let us know!
