In March of 2012, MotoChat, the motorcycle Twitter/Facebook chat dedicated its hour-long gab fest to the topic of Motorcycle Blogs. One of the questions that was posed was:
When motorcycle bloggers post about their trips to far flung places or their weeks or their months out on the road – do you see it as showing off?
My point of view~
Without people sharing their stories, their photos, writing about their experiences – a huge part of what inspires me to want to see more of the world would be missing. I have learned so much from reading about others travels. Sometimes I don’t even realize that a seed has been planted in my imagination until much later.
Showing off? I say, no way.
Have you ever read about something or some place in a blog and said – I have to see that and actually went for it? Was it around the corner or some far away place?
What do you think – is it showing off?
MotoChat is a Twitter chat that occurs on Wednesdays at 1pm PT. You can follow along with the hashtag #motochat.
This weeks topic was one that is near and dear to my heart: Motorcycle Blogs
The Chat Questions
(Which you can also weigh in on at the Motochat Facebook page)
- What makes a great moto blog?
- Words, pics or videos; is one more important?
- What do you look for the first time you read a new blog?
- Is having more than one blog too much?
- What have you learned from reading moto blogs?

I’ve heard many people say that they just “don’t get Twitter”. Well, gorgeous, what I’ve come to learn about Twitter is that your experience there is only as good as the people or topics you choose to follow. So here is one tip for you:
Wednesdays at 9:00pm EST motorcyclists from all over the world come together to chat about motorcycles for an hour. Covering a different topic each week, their posts are found on Twitter using the hashtag #motochat. It’s a great way to talk about a topic that you love and to find interesting people to follow.
#Motochat is the brainchild of @johncloonan. Thanks, John!
