What is #BMBchat?
#BMBchat is a twitter chat that gives bloggers, brand reps, PR tweeps and others interested in social media and blogger relations, the opportunity to come together and talk openly with one another. The goal is to connect, learn and engage with each other.
What do we talk about?
The chats are themed around a particular topic and participants are encouraged to go from there, responding and asking questions that are relevant to the overarching theme.
While the chat presents an opportunity for bloggers and brands to connect with each other, it’s not the time for promoting individual blogs or posts.
How do I get involved?
Anyone is welcome to join in, just be on twitter at the designated time and follow the #BMBchat hashtag.

Once you’ve found the conversation, how do you participate?

Throughout the chat we will be asking some different questions to facilitate the conversation and welcome your thoughts – just make sure you inlcude the hashtag at the end of each tweet so we can all see what you have to say!
