Love sharing on Twitter? Make it more fun and easier than ever with Shareaholic’s Chrome extension for Twitter.
Beyond brainstorming, writing, editing your posts, you probably spend a large amount of time actually promoting your posts. While Twitter may not be your primary platform of promotion, you should definitely be on Twitter to meet other bloggers and learn new blogging tips. One way to do both at once is through Twitter chats. Usually a organized conversation once a week followed by general chatting throughout the week, Twitter chats are an awesome resource for bloggers. Here are the top Twitter chats for bloggers:
