So you may ask, what’s @MayoHour anyway? Well this was totally new to me a few weeks ago. I had seen @MayoHour appear on my Twitter feed, but I hadn’t a clue what it meant.
So I jumped on the bandwagon And threw out a tweet introducing myself @MayoHour. The lovely Tracy from @MayoHour tweeted me back to explain what was going on.
So it’s fairly foolproof there’s a sponsor every week and anyone who’s joining in the conversation has to #thesponsor and #mayohour.
So I joined in the craic to see what was going on.
A few weeks later I seen they were looking for a business to sponsor the hour.
I clicked into it to see what the craic was. I was pleasantly surprised to see it was quite reasonable. Advertising for a small business can be ridiculously expensive and to be fair the @MayoHour is an affordable fee for a sponsor.
So I signed up.
Tracy made things very easy for me by introducing me to tweet deck. This is a great tool for scheduling tweets. I’m a fast tweeter anyway but it’s still hard to keep up with the mayhem that unfolds on @MayoHour. I made loads of connections that night and there was a bit of craic and banter too.
Platinum was fairly trending that night.
It’s funny because I’ve met businesses that were not on my radar at all. This is great as it gets everyone chatting and out of our own comfort zone. A little diversity never hurt anybody. I’ve become acquainted with everyone from sheep farmers to holistic therapists to taxi drivers.
I love @MayoHour now and I make sure I’m ready for it on a Monday night.
I’m in the process of setting up a lifestyle blog at the moment. It will be based on my life here in Mayo. I’m a 34yr old Mum, Wife, hairdresser, businesswoman. Clean eating food lover.
I’Il be blogging about everything from my recent Wedding to
- Healthy eating while out.
- Make up
- Social events etc
I fully intend to use @MayoHour to help promote my blog.
I’m hoping to have it up and running by the end of the month. So watch this space.
In the meantime you’ll find me on Twitter @platinummaria
You can tweet me anytime or catch me on the @MayoHour at 9pm on Monday nights. It’s not to be missed for all the Mayo banter.
