Join us TOMORROW for a Recruitment Twitter Chat

With less than six months to go until the first 3-Day of the season, we wanted to get everyone virtually together to chat about recruiting new team members.

Join us TOMORROW, Wednesday, April 5 at 6:00 p.m. PST (that’s 7:00 p.m. MT, 8:00 p.m. CT, and 9:00 p.m. EST) for an hour-long tweet chat all about the best ways to recruit your friends, family, and maybe even some strangers to walk 60 miles with you at the 3-Day.

Can you help us spread the word? Even if you can’t join us (Darn! Don’t worry, we’ll post on the blog after with some of our favorite tweets), we’d love your help letting other 3-Day participants know. You can click here to tweet, or copy and paste this into Twitter or Facebook:

Join us tomorrow, Wednesday 4/5 at 6:00 pm PST for a 3-Day Tweet Chat all about recruitment! Learn more here: (link to blog post)

Never done a Tweet Chat before? That’s okay! Some people call them Twitter Parties or Twitter Meet-Ups, but whatever the name, it works like this:

  1. Sign on to Twitter at 6:00 p.m. PST tomorrow (or a few minutes before).
  2. Make sure you’re following @The3Dayon Twitter.
  3. On Twitter, search for #The3Day, which is the official hashtag we will use for this Tweet Chat.
  4. You can also use the website com. Sign in, enter the hashtag #The3Day, and you’ll be able to watch and tweet in real-time with us.
  5. We’ll ask some questions to get things started, and we will also share tips and tricks from 3-Day veterans and coaches. This will be a great way to meet your fellow 3-Day participants, ask your questions, and motivate yourself to get ready for your 3-Day adventure. Our 3-Day Social Media Team, Alyssa and Kaleigh, also can’t wait to tweet with you!

Not on Twitter yet? Here are a few quick tips to get you started:

  • It’s free and easy to join at Twitter.com.
  • Go to com/The3Day and click “Follow” to make sure our messages show up in your feed.
  • A hashtag is a way to “file” tweets and collect them under a certain topic, so you’ll be able to see everything everyone is tweeting under this hashtag. Just search for #the3day in Twitter and you’ll be able to see everyone’s messages about the 3-Day, not just ours. Capitalization isn’t necessary, but spelling is!
  • When writing your own messages, keep in mind that tweets can only be 140 characters at a time, so it’s best to keep things short n’ sweet.

Can wait to tweet and chat away with you all tomorrow night!

Gotcha!

Did you believe our April Fool’s Day jokes? Don’t worry! We won’t ask you to walk another 60 miles, and (sadly) can’t let you cruise around on a Segway for your 3-Day experience this year. We just wanted to share a joke, give a smile, and start your April off right.

If you spotted the joke, high five! You’re a smarty! Feel free to share around to your team members from the 3-Day, or other people who need a grin.

Motivation Monday: Celebrating Women’s History Month

Photo Five

March is Women’s History Month, and we have a lot to celebrate! Did you know that without women we wouldn’t have fire escapes (Anna Connelly in 1887) or computer programming (Grace Hopper in 1944)? Not to mention that Marie Curie was awarded the Nobel Prize for Physics and Chemistry for her groundbreaking work, and less than fifty years later Sri Lankan stateswoman Sirimavo R.D. Bandaranaike made history, becoming the world’s first woman prime minister. Women can, and continue to rise.

In the spirit of these awesome women, and awesome women everywhere, especially those who walk, crew, and volunteer at the 3-Day, we are proud to celebrate this month.

We have some serious motivation for you this March Monday in the form of quotes about strength, love, happiness, and making a difference from some very strong women.
