Last night, I hosted the first #HandmadeChat. I learned so much, including more about how to host a Twitter chat. I'll post some tips in a future blog post, but for now, I want you to know that we had a great time and share the transcript with you. Among other things, we shared our ideas about why handmade is hot, and also tips for making handmade products stand out in the crowd.
As you can see, you can click directly on the links to meet and follow on Twitter the amazing people of #HandmadeChat. I want to extend special thanks to people who helped us promote #HandmadeChat in advance, but who were not able to attend last night. You can find them and everyone else by checking the #HandmadeChat hash tag on Twitter. After the chat, I coded a “story” of people's answers to the question, “What Makes Handmade So Special?” Check it out:
You can create your own story on Storify.
Follow #HandmadeChat on Twitter to discover next week's chat topic, and be sure to join us Thursday, August 25 at 8pm EST for the next #HandmadeChat. See you there!
