Twittering participants come together


You would never guess that the group of women in the middle of the Cougareat, laughing out loud, had never met before.

Veronica Johnson (@savvyveronica), Elisa Scharton (@mmbcommunity) and Janet Thaeler (@yourldsradio) were invited to attend Women’s Conference as guest media, along with other popular social media personalities, to live tweet the happenings of the annual event. All of the women have popular blogs followed by thousands, met today and have quickly formed a bond of friendship.

Mormon mommy blogs have been popular on the Internet for a number of years and continue to be an active way for LDS women to conect with one another to help build and strengthen their lives and homes.

The women were asked to specifically cover the service project being performed at Women’s Conference this weekend. Nearly 35,000 backpacks full of school supplies are being put together to be distributed to students in local schools.

“Normally they do a humanitarian aid project, but they’re fazing away from that and trying to keep all of the service projects local to benefit to those that need help in the community,” Johnson said.

Participants can also visit the service section on the Women’s Conference webiste and download service kits to take part as well.

“We live, we laugh, we love, we serve,” said Thaeler. “And then we blog about it.”

All forms of social media are being integrated with Women’s Conference this year. In addition to live tweeting and blogging content can be found from the conference almost instantly on Facebook and Pintrest.

“We have someone making image-quotes from the speakers and loading them to Pintrest in real time,” Thaeler said.
