Community Spotlight: Announcing the March FoodistaChat!

March 2, 2012

Last month, we kicked off our #foodistachat Twitter chat series with wine expert Jameson Fink, and this month, we're focusing on food with author and master gardener Amy Jeanroy.

Amy is an expert on all things canning, preserving, farming, gardening, herbs, and cooking fresh, local food from scratch. Please join us on Wednesday, March 14 at 4 p.m. Pacific to talk about these topics and more. If you're new to participating in chats on Twitter, see the questions below.

How Do I Participate in #FoodistaChat?

Join our chat by signing into your Twitter account and searching for the hashtag #foodistachat. Other services such as TweetChat turn hashtags into dedicated chat rooms to make it even easier to follow along. Make sure you use the #foodistachat hashtag with all of your tweets so fellow participants can read them.

Some chat attendees like to ask the guest moderator questions, while others prefer to read others' responses and retweet salient points to their followers. We welcome all forms of participation!

How Can I Read the #FoodistaChat Later?

I'll post a full recap of each #foodistachat on the following Friday. Keep your eyes peeled at on March 16 for this month's wrap-up.

If you'd like to write about #foodistachat on your own blog, do as we do and use Twitter's built-in embed codes. Just search for the #foodistachat hashtag and click "Open," then "Details" on the desired tweets.
