Don’t forget, our next Twitter chat will be taking place this coming Sunday, July 27, at 1pm eastern time. The topic? Everything blogger etiquette. The chat will last a half an hour. Ready for the questions?
We’ll be covering two main questions related to blogger-to-blogger etiquette:
Q1. What courtesies do you typically provide other bloggers or publishers when working with or linking to them? (A few things to share with your fellow chat participants: how do you handle image crediting? What about emails from other bloggers asking to guest post or asking you to guest post? How do you respond to bloggers who are asking for favors, especially if you don’t want to comply?)
Q2. How do you approach blogger-to-blogger etiquette around social media? Do you respond to everyone who tweets you or leaves a comment on your Instagram? How do you introduce yourself on social? Do you jump in on Twitter conversations between other bloggers?
Then, we’ll look at two big questions related to blogger-to-brand etiquette:
Q3. How do you respond to a brand when you’re not interested in what they’ve pitched? (This could be a simple gifted item, a sponsored post, anything!)
Q4. What are the “polite” business practices you as a blogger should do when working with a brand?
Finally, we’ll open it up to your own stories and experiences:
Q5. Either from your own experiences or from behavior you’ve observed, what’s one etiquette no-no a blogger should NEVER do? What’s one thing a blogger should ALWAYS do?
Now remember, each question is numbered (Q1, Q2, Q3), so during the Twitter chat, we recommend numbering your response tweets A1, A2, A3, etc, as your responses correlate to the questions. This way, other participants can follow the conversation! It also means that if you hop in late, you can still answer a question from early in the chat.
And, don’t forget, we want to be sure we can see your tweets, and that everyone else in the chat can see them too (after all, you are fabulous). So while we definitely appreciate you tagging us at @shopthebbar in your tweets, be sure you include the #BBarHH hashtag. It’s the easiest way for everyone participating to see what you’re sharing!
We’re so excited to connect with you all again on July 27. As always, if you have any questions or comments, please let us know!
