The ultimate Twitter chat guide
With so many blogs around these days it's important to promote your content so it doesn't disappear in the sea of competitors. Whilst it would be great to publish a post and expect the visitors to come flooding in, unfortunately it's not quite that easy anymore. Twitter chats are a fantastic way to get to know fellow bloggers, find out the latest tips and trends and even swap links. This guide will give you all the insight on what groups are out there, what hash tags you should use and when you should be tuning in.
