I got the ‘Top Contributor’ Award :-)

Wahay! I earned the Top Contributor Award for January 2015 at WokingOnline’s WokingHour 🙂

Just before Christmas of 2014 I decided to track down some local Twitter hours. It was remarkably easy – I just googled #UKHours  and found a whole host of them (try it!). I was pleased to find a ‘local hour’ devoted to the town in which I live and therefore decided to chip in.

As it turns out, #WokingHour (and the Twitter account @WokingHour) is still fairly new, as far as I can see, but it looks like it’s going to be THE go-to place for all things Woking in the future…

I’m in the process of building up quite a catalogue of new contacts as a result of my involvement in #WokingHour which takes place every Wednesday evening between 20:00 and 21:00hrs (GMT).  It feels good to be tweeting with ‘local’ people and businesses – though non-locals are welcome, too.

Suffice to say I’ll be hanging out on Twitter during #WokingHour every Wednesday (time permitting!), and I hope to ‘see’ you there!
