New Twitter Party Date Announced!

As many of you probably read - our twitter party last week had to be cancelled. Our modem went down and the "lovely" folks at AT&T had us arguing with them for no less than six hours about getting a new one. In the end, we had to drive 100 miles round trip to get a new one... only that one was a dud - no power - which left us another day out of touch. We finally did get everything up an running again, but the twitter party was a no-go (thank goodness for my new cellphone that let me get onto Twitter to at least post a cancellation tweet!).

Join our New Twitter Party

Wednesday, June 24th from 7-8pm, pacific time (10-11 eastern time)

Our contributors, readers and possibly some stalkers will be there. Use hashtag #pinklemon for the party. If you are unfamiliar with Twitter, click herefor a great explanation.

We recommend that you check out Tweet Grid if you haven't already. Tweet Grid is a fantastic tool you can use that night to read what is going on and see everyone's tweets. (A tutorial on how to use Tweet Grid is at the bottom of this post)

There will be door prizes given away during our party so for a chance at some extra loot, be sure to join us!

We will also be posting the Blog Party winners in the next couple of days (in case you were wondering) - so stay tuned to see if YOU won on of our 70 awesome prizes!!

- Liz

Tweet Grid Tutorial: (click on any picture to enlarge for details)

Step 1:

Go to Tweet Grid (www.tweetgrid.com) - there you will see this screen:


Click on the "Party" button


Step 2:

Enter #pinklemon in the hashtag box, pinklemonadeliz in the host box and your Twitter id in the username box (you USERNAME - NOT your password!!)


Step 3:

You will see a three column grid, if you have a favorite contributor you would like to follow, enter their twitter id in the middle box and click "search" - if you'd just like to party with us, change the "grid layout" pulldown box to 1x2




Step 4:

You should now have a screen that looks like this with the #pinklemon hashtag in the first column and your twitter id in the 2nd column.



You will now be able to party with us in real time with the tweets scrolling - no refreshing necessary!

Even though there is more than an hour before the party starts, I am all set up and ready to go. That way I don't forget and miss it.
