One of my favorite blogs is nycprgirls, written by three lovely PR ladies living in New York. They have killer fashion and great PR advice – an unbeatable combination in my opinion!
While catching up on their posts I found one talking about Twitter chats and ways to get involved. These weekly/monthly conversations allow you to hear other ideas and connect with fantastic people across the world.
Another reason I love participating in these chats is the support it gives to your social media presence. Even better, it helps young PR pros (like myself) to learn about new ideas in certain fields and tweet about topics related to our field.
They also help with blog and social media goals. Even though I am still figuring out the blogging world and my writing style, it is great to have weekly and monthly objectives. Like Nate Riggs (one of my favorite mentors) said, you need to think about outcomes rather than goals as a personal blogger.
Personally, I try to blog three times a week and take part in one chat a week. This way I keep my social media presence strong, and even better, consistent.
Here are the chats the ncyprgirls listed – enjoy!
