It seems nearly everyone is on Twitter these days, which means that finding people you care about amidst all the din can be …well, challenging to say the least. This is where hashtags come in – those # marks that appear at the end of some tweets, like this one.
Commonly used at conferences, and for the popular Follow Friday meme, the new hashtag #EcoMonday is being used by the twitterati to point out recommended greenies to follow, as well as to spread tips and links about sustainable practices, green biz and green living. EcoMonday is the brainchild of Rob Reed of Max Gladwell. He’s put a real-time feed of EcoMonday tweets up here. This new meme is already one of the hot “trending topics” on Twitter.
I follow nearly 2,000 people on Twitter, all of whom I’d recommend as a “follow,” and most of whom are somehow connected to the green world – green Moms, green businesspeople, green marketing folks, and more… So I could stay busy with EcoMonday for months, if not years, to come! Come join in on the EcoMonday fun! Are you on Twitter yet? Leave a comment and share!

UPDATE: SINCE THIS POST WAS WRITTEN, WE’VE LEARNED THAT IN FACT WE DID WIN THE SHORTY AWARDS COMPETITION! THANKS TO ALL WHO VOTED FOR US AND PLEASE JOIN US IN NYC FOR THE CELEBRATION ON FEBRUARY 11TH!
I’m just recovered from a late night of campaigning for a brand new award: the Shortys. The Shortys aim to honor the best content producers on Twitter. It appears my posse, my community, my gals – the Green Moms of the Green Moms Carnival ended up in second place among all the green twitterati on Twitter. It’s still a bit early to tell, but preliminary results make it look like the winner is Dr. Greene, whom we all adore anyway!
Thanks to everyone who voted for us.
Looking at some of the comments about why people voted was humbling. We’re so thrilled that you enjoy our tweets, learn from them and are inspired by them.
The Green Moms Carnival members are a very diverse group of bloggers who are united by our desire to help Mother Earth. Some of us are Mothers, some of us are child-free. Heck, we’ve even had some “Sons of Mothers” participate in our carnivals!
We’re published authors with popular books in the green space, stay-at-home Moms, law firm partners, business owners, grant writers, Sunday School teachers and non-believers. A few of us were at the forefront of the environmental movement 30 years ago, others came to understand the dangers of environmental degradation far more recently. Some of us blog for the sheer pleasure of it and refuse advertising on our blogs, whereas a few of us support our families with the money made through affiliate programs, advertising, and consulting.
We believe that together, our voices can make a difference in our collective stewardship of Mother Earth.
We thank you for your encouragement.
