If you love blogging and chatting about blogging, check out #BlogGab, Tuesday nights at 9pm ET on Twitter.

If you participate in Twitter chats, then you pretty much already know how it works: we’ll come up with a topic or two and we’ll just start tweeting. If you’re new to Twitter chats, you can use a free site like TweetChat, sign in to your Twitter account, then enter “bloggab” in the window at the top of the page. It will then filter all tweets that contain the hashtag “#BlogGab.” You can then post your tweets (it’ll add the hashtag automatically), reply to other people’s tweets or retweet from that webpage.

This is a companion chat to Mack Collier’s #Blogchat, which happens every Sunday night at 9pm ET. Let me be clear: this is in no way designed to be competition with Mack. If you only have time for one Twitter chat per week, I’d encourage you to choose #Blogchat hands down. But if you have time for a second chat about blogging, I hope you’ll consider doing both. I’ll do my best to make sure the topics between the two chats don’t match up closely so we can cover more ground per week between the two chats.

The focus will be personal blogging: topics will include things like planning a blog, finding the time, improving your writing, creating compelling topics, finding better photos, attracting more readers or anything else that comes to mind.

I hope you’ll drop by this Tuesday to check things out!
