It took me a long time to add social media accounts to my blog and it has always been one of my biggest blogging regrets that I didn’t start sooner, as they are now responsible for about 75% of my overall traffic. Twitter, in particular, is a great way to share my posts and ideas immediately, and there is the possibility that posts could reach thousands if promoted by enough people.
I’ve decided to do a Twitter party in which all bloggers can share their posts and meet new people. It is going to be going on all day so feel free to join in at any time. Here is what you do:
1. Choose one of your favourite recent blog posts.
2. Share the link.
3. Use the hashtag #SundayBlogShare
You can also find me on Twitter and Tumblr @suzie81blog.
Great idea, thanks for thinking of this today 🙂
Thanks my lovely!
I have little experience with Twitter. You said: “Share the link” Where? On Twitter or in comments to your post?
On Twitter, and before you post it type in #SundayBlogShare next to your link
Hi Suzie! Good thing I read the comments. I was ready to share my link here.
Haha! Sorry Phil, I should have made it more clear. Thanks for sharing the link – I’m going to make it a weekly thing as it was quite successful!

Given the way I feel about using the rest of the social media to support the blogging, you know I just have to reblog this. Great idea, Suzie! Wish I’d thought of it.
Hello Suzie. This is a great idea – I’ll certainly give it a try. Thank you!
I posted one to be supportive. Sounds like a great idea. Hope you get a great turnout! 🙂
Thank you Suzie for the great idea. Thanks for the tweet too 🙂
You’re always wanting to share your fortunes with others.
I like people chatting I think – I was helped out by lots of people when I first started so I like to give back a bit…

My #SundayBlogShare is still going on Twitter in case you missed it this morning! Simply post your favourite link from this week on Twitter with the hashtag #SundayBlogShare and meet fellow bloggers!
Love this, thanks!
Thanks Judy – you’re welcome to join us next Sunday as Im going to make it a weekly thing…
I Love this idea!!! I wish I had a Twitter account to join in.
I created one just fr my blog – it was quite quick to set up…
I will look into that. Thank you. This would be a great opportunity to promote my page.
Twitter and Facebook have been responsible for about 75% of my overall views – it’s well worth it!
Absolutely love this idea, Suzie. Thank you for inviting us all to the party. I participated and am all ready looking forward to next Sunday so I can party again (plus there’s an extra hour on Sunday this week as the clocks go back by one hour).
Just getting over here to say so, but this was really a great idea! Glad to hear that you’re going to continue the trend.
Thanks Diana! Really glad you enjoyed it!
Great idea, I’d love to join in 🙂
In case you are not already aware, there are other hashtags on twitter through the week that work the same/similar way as your idea.
On Mondays #MondayBlogs share any post, read & RT others (no book promo, just blog posts)
On wednesdays #wwwblogs (I think it stands for – woman who write blogs)
And on Saturdays #ArchiveDay – share old posts, read & RT others.
Thanks for giving us a Sunday meme Suzie, see you over there :o)
Take care, Kimmie x
Thanks! I participate in Monday Blogs and wwwblogs and have met a ton of new people there! It occurred to me that the busiest blogging day was Sundays, so I thought I’d create a Twitter party for then and see what happens. It turns out, it was quite successful so I’m doing it again this week…
