#HiveChat #3 – My Recap of the August 4th #Hive Chat on Twitter, hosted by me (@TraciYorkWriter)

Here it is, almost a week after the wickedly-cool-yet-brain-melty #HiveChat #3 (and great idea to start numbering them, @hivetrending!) on Twitter, and I’m still finding tweets I haven’t seen before! And believe me, that’s not a complaint – I’m so amazed and thrilled at how many people participated! And instead of just sharing this on my Hive blog, I figured since a number of my WordPress blogging friends have asked me if I’ve joined a cult what this blockchain blogging thing is, that I’d post this on both of my blogs.

I also thought that future Hive Chat hosts might want to check this out to get a feel for how they typically go – although as we’re about to see with @nathanmars chat tomorrow, that there are no hard and fast rules, and you can do it in a way that works for you.

And while I originally planned to also include some of my favorite and/or most thought provoking answers in this recap, I soon realized how overwhelming that would be for a single post. I’m toying with the idea of doing a series of posts in the next couple of weeks, each one focusing on a single question with as many of the answers as I can pull together. Please shout out if that’s something you’d be interested in seeing, or if this overall summary is all you need. 😊

Firstly, what is a #TwitterChat?

It’s actually a pretty simple thing – essentially someone comes up with a hash tag and topic, then at the appointed time, the designated host starts tweeting out a series of questions. People then tweet out their answers using the hash tag, and merriment is made! Stella has a great guideline in this post, so be sure to take a peek. More specifically for my chat (which followed how the two hosts before me did theirs), as I explained to someone beforehand –

It lasts an hour. I ask a series of 5 questions, one every ten minutes, like so….

Q1 – my question

A1 – your answer + the #HiveChat tag.

Then chat with everyone else as much as you’d like!

While I’d heard about Twitter chats for ages, and saw various tags (usually related to blogging and writing) in my feed over the years, I’d never really participated in one before. But after the first Hive Chat took place back on July 21st (hosted by the incredibly talented @jeanlucsr, who also happens to be the creator of the HiveChat hashtag), I was hooked! So when @hivepeople (aka @stellabelle) offered me the chance to host the third one (she rocked chat #2), my answer was a…


In the week before the chat

Here are six of the tweets that I did leading up to the chat. Many awesome people, including the aforementioned JeanLuc and Hive People, also tweeted out reminders that the chat was coming.

Two days before, I tweeted this out –

Then the day before, I sent out a teaser question –

90 minutes before –

Less than an hour –

30 minutes before –

Reminder – starts in 15 minutes –

The #HiveChat begins!

Since I want to encourage people to continue chatting about these questions and answers, instead of embedding these tweets, I’ll share the link to each, then write out the questions and include the amazeball graphics (provided by the also amazingly talented @stellabelle – thank you again for the gorgeousness!). Oh, and I have to admit, that while I added the #HiveChat to my first two question tweets here, it only appeared in my last three questions because JeanLuc shouted out and reminded me during the chat… 🤣

Initial Stats Report

The very next day, @jeanlucsr) posted an amazing report that said, in part –

During the time of this snapshot, 31.262 accounts on Twitter were reached, with those 100 tweets getting 172.750 impressions.

As he further explained on Twitter, that’s not the whole story –

…actually that reach was a snapshot of a timeframe of 11 minutes during the chat. So it’s a lot higher.

See why my brain was melted? LOL! Be sure to check out the rest of the stats, along with some cool charts and graphics in his post, #HiveChat Report Tuesday August 4th
