The start of something...

The following text was posted on the ALL HORTS Facebook page on 20 February 2016.

GARDEN BLOGGERS #gdnbloggers Thank you to everyone for your feedback on the garden bloggers post a few days ago. There seems to be a lot of interest in supporting one another, sharing information, and a monthly twitter chat! I've registered the hashtag #gdnbloggers and set up a home for it at here. You don't ever have to use this page, but it looks like it might be quite useful for following and participating in the twitter chat (you can use the twubs service to follow any twitter hashtag, have a play around!).

THE FIRST #GDNBLOGGERS CHAT is scheduled for 7pm-8pm on Sunday 28 February 2016. I have a whole host of questions and topics, but I imagine it would be good to use the first session to introduce ourselves and our blogs, and to voice what we'd like to get out of this forum so that we can get the most out of the monthly sessions. I'll post the actual questions here, and tweet them, a few days before the event.

If this takes off, it would be great if we can get some special guests to take part and share their expertise. I'll try not to get too carried away just now, though.

In the meantime, thank you to everyone who's already started to use #gdnbloggers on their tweets - can I encourage everyone to include it when appropriate, particularly when publicising your latest blog post. And, in the meantime, to continue supporting each other with retweets, Facebook shares and just as importantly, blog comments! Hope to see you all next Sunday on Twitter!
