I started actively using my Twitter account in 2017 because I wanted to connect with more bloggers. I felt isolated as a blogger because I am a single mother and have limited opportunity to meet new people in my city.
Twitter became a great app for making fast connections with people of like minds, because I was able to search a hashtag and be directed to people who were bloggers like me.
I was determined to make connections, but I had to put myself out there. Through active conversations and networking, it did not take long for me to come across the very first
#twitterchat. Prior to being more active on Twitter, I had no idea what a “twitter chat” was, but when I came across #UnashamedGirlTalk hosted by @TakeiaCage, I fell in love with this creative way of connecting with others.
I loved this chat because it is all about feeling Unashamed and sharing positive vibes. There are so many chats out there, here are a few of my favorites:
#HealChat is a weekly online healing circle for people to share stories, believing we heal when we feel heard. Chats hosted every Saturday at 3PM/EST|12PM/PT|8PM/GMT w/ @TheHealstorian #20ReasonsWhy focuses on empowering, educating, and engaging conversations to help uplift others. These chats are hosted on the 2nd and 4th Wednesday of each month at 7PM/EST with @ITLPrograms
- @Ambitionista is a chat created by @MiraJoleigh and is held on the first Monday of each month 8PM/EST
#Ambitionista is “a sisterhood of dream-chasing ambitious women in our 20s+30”
#BloggerConfession is all about blogger life, expansion, and growth. Hosted by @__RebekahDenise every Sunday at 7PM/EST
After about 3 months on Twitter, I got the courage to start my own Twitter chat and I am so excited to share the purpose, process, and how you can participate.
The ultimate goal for this brand is to inspire college girls, women, and mothers to incorporate Self-love into every area of their lives; to focus on Healing Over Everything, and to make Women’s Empowerment a priority.
Every Wednesday, at 8:00PM/EST I host a LADYHOOD journey Twitter Chat for women. Each chat has a different focus and asks questions that are fun, thoughtful, and can sometimes trigger emotions that require healing. I want every woman to leave my chats feeling inspired, motivated, and challenged to focus on self-love and to reflect on their lives in a more positive way.
LADYHOOD journey Topics
Each week, unless a special announcement has been given, I host a chat with one of the four topics:
- #Mommyhoodchat (mom life, single-moms, motherhood)
- #beautyBSchat (beauty standards, self-love, makeup addiction)
- #AntiBodyShamingChat (body love, body positive)
- #how2lovechat (dating, relationships, single-life, marriage) NEW CHAT TOPIC
For the entire month of Jan. 2018, I am hosting a 31 Day Challenge with Rebekah Denise and Julia Joy, #HealZone: Name Your Hurt, Defy Your Comfort Zone so I will only be hosting 1 Twitter Chat during this month.
The first LADYHOOD journey Twitter Chat of the New Year will be my newest chat topic: #how2lovechat where we will discuss casual sex, hookups, and one-night-stands next Wednesday, January 17th at 8PM/EST.
How to Participate
Every Wednesday at 8PM/EST, go to my Twitter page @ladyjourney_ or search the chat topic in the search bar to participate. There will be various prompts posted using Q1, Q2, etc. for each question.
Each prompt requires a response using A1, A2, etc. and make sure to use the hashtag for that specific chat topic. You can comment under the prompts or do a “quote tweet” to respond. (Check out the preview of responses for my #beautyBSchat below)
I am so looking forward to connecting with all of you on Wednesday, Jan. 17, 2018 for the #how2lovechat where we will discuss casual sex and one-night-stands. Follow me to join in the chit chat!
Thank you to every woman and mother who has participated in my chats in 2017. Let’s continue to rock 2018 by focusing on Self-love, Women’s Empowerment and Healing Over Everything.
The LADYHOOD journey Twitter Chats are being revamped at this time. Please continue to follow me on Twitter for updates on when the chat will continue.
