Every now I will get an email, FB inbox, twitter DM, or comment that asks me a question. Questions are good. Questions mean that you guys are engaged and paying attention to all of my Joyful ramblings. Questions mean you want to know more about why I do something or said something or even how I did something.
I have been meaning to do a FAQ section for a while but still have not done it. But nevertheless I try to be very responsive to any and all questions I get, except for the spammy “Want to get more hits?” question. Those get ignored. One time someone questioned me challenging my pursuit of Joy. I was more than happy to answer his question. 🙂
More often than not I answer these questions via the same medium they came in, FB, email, twitter, blog comment, etc. Remember, in elementary school when the teacher said no question is a dumb question and that another student is probably wondering the same thing? Well I’d venture to guess that theory is just as applicable here and now as it was then. So from now on I will on occasion stop our normally Joyful programming to publicly answer some Joy Chaser Questions. Fear not you name will not be used. So ask away?
As I prepare for my email to explode with all of your questions, insights, and observations I will start us off with this question I received last week about having a twitter party also called a twitter chat.
Joy Chaser: Chasing Joy, Hi. Question…is all you have to do for a Twitter party is #. I want to do one…
Me: Hi, yes. Just pick a time for it to start and tell everyone the hashtag. I like to use Tweetchat during the party so I can see all the tweets. Good luck 🙂
Joy Chaser: How do you do Tweetchat?
Me: Go to tweetchat.com. log in with Twitter. Put the hashtag in the search box. It will pull up all the tweets using it. You can type in the box at the top and it will automatically add the hashtag. Play around with it.
Joy Chaser: THANKS LADY!
