So, I use Twitter to learn about all kinds of things, but mostly book publishing. And they have a very helpful thing called #askagent, where agents will get online and you can, well, ask them stuff. So it’s kind of like a chat room, except literally anyone anywhere can participate at the time or scroll through it later to see questions and answers. I realized that there’s lots of people in the States who follow this blog, who may be pre-field or just curious about what life is like on the mission field. So (drumroll please!) I’d like to do our own Twitter chat!
Here’s how to participate:
1. Get on Twitter. It’s free! (A missionary mama’s favorite price, amIright?) If you don’t have a log in, make one.
2. Next, at the designated time (in this case, November 14th at 8:00 EST), use the search bar towards the top to search for “#MMMchat”. Yes, you need the hashtag (that’s the pound sign for us old-timers).
2b. Search for my Twitter name (@charms139) and you should be able to see me using that hashtag.
3. Ask a question in 140 characters or less. Abbreviate! It’s okay. And include the #MMMchat hashtag so I’ll see it and (hopefully) answer.
For example: “What do you do when your laundry won’t dry? #MMMchat”
Let’s try it! I’ll show up one week from today on November 14th from 8:00-9:00 EST, full of wisdom and insight and definitely not exhausted from wrestling two kids into bed, and you can hit me with your best shot. You know, digitally, anyway.
See you there!
