Having an absolute ball representing with the Washington DC area crew at South by SouthWest Interactive has its downside. I had to make a hard decision – throw a half-strength Twitter chat with a gracious guest or cancel the Twitter chat just as we’re beginning to gain some momentum.
It seems there was a hidden third option.
I’ve been trying to do a round-up post for Women’s History Month with resources for Women in Business. But there are just so MANY resources that I couldn’t fit them into a short enough series. So today from noon to 1 pm Eastern, I’m going to send out as many as I can, during a mini-Tweetathon. That’s 11 am central, and 9 am Pacific. I’m pretty sure there’s no such thing as Mountain time.
(Just kidding, 10 am Mountain. Please don’t write me hate mail.)
I’m SURE you know of more resources than I could possibly share alone, so I’d love it if you would share yours too. You can share any resource that falls into the following categories.
- Geared specifically towards women in business
- Anything that celebrates Women History Month or this past International Women’s Day
- Features a women business owner, co-owner, partner, or a C level female executive.
And yes, that woman can be you. To participate any time today, just send out a tweet with the #wgbiz hashtag. If you send out your tweet by noon Eastern, I’ll retweet it during the traditional tweetchat hour from noon to one pm. If you can’t get it in by then, some selected tweets will be shared in the round-up posted later in the week.
Want to Follow the Mini-tweetathon live? Here’s how:
- Log into Twitter, Tweetchat, Tweetgrid, Tweetdeck, or any other Twitter tool that lets you isolate a hashtag.
- Follow our Twitter hashtag #wgbiz. (In Twitter you can use the search at the top of the screen, in Tweetchat or Tweetgrid, once you’re logged in, you’ll see an area for you to enter the hashtag at the top of the screen.)
- Arrive as early as 11:45 a.m. to introduce yourself, send us a link to your site, and share what your company does, as well as to meet the other chatters.
- Make sure you’re following the host, in this case me (@wbgiz is the official channel, @Tinu is my personal handle), and featured guest(s) if any, so you can send questions or follow up with them later.
- Have yourself a ball. Twitter chats are meant to be educational, sure, but also lighter than a teleconference or webinar.
Join us later in the month for our series of Women in Business highlighted profiles, featuring the Women Grow Business contributors.
