ProBlogger Christmas Eve Party – Save This Date

OK – last year I did an impromptu ProBlogger ‘Christmas office party’ on Christmas Eve. It basically involved me drinking beer and eating some chips sitting in front of a webcam while Twitter followers dropped by to say G’day. We did a bit of Q&A and had some fun for an hour or so.

This year I want to open it up to everyone and give you a little advanced warning.

This year I’m going to do it a little earlier in the day (I’ll swap out beer and chips for coffee and a muffin) and it’ll be on at 9am this coming Thursday Melbourne time.

This will make it:

  • 2pm Wednesday in Los Angeles
  • 5pm Wednesday in New York
  • 10pm Wednesday in London
  • 6am Thursday in Singapore
  • 3.30am in New Delhi (sorry friends!)

I’ll Tweet out a reminder in the lead up and when we start but it’ll be at the ProBlogger Show channel on Ustream.

  2. Dmytro says:

    Awesome! I’ll be sure to join this!

  3. Steven says:

    Wow, hope you all enjoy the parties there!! I think I’ll be sleeping then… :(

  4. Avinash says:

    For us in India, 3:30 Am, LoL mate, at least 5-6 AM would have been much better for us. Anyway, i can understand you cant be at convenient time all around the globe. Will read the transcript or watch the video later on if available.

  5. Will make sure to mark it on my calendar.

  6. Penny Stocks says:

    timing to be noted down with an alarm .. lol
    will be waiting to hear from you soon

  7. Ms. Freeman says:

    That sounds like a lot of fun, I think it would be 4pm my time, Central US. I may pop in to check it out. :)

  8. Thanks! See you there.

  9. Rita says:

    Another creative idea from the Problogger. That’s what makes you one of the best.

  10. George says:

    Sounds like fun! Can’t wait!

  11. Caitlin says:

    Sounds like a neat idea! I’ll try to get home from work in time to catch the end of it!

  12. Seems to me that India and their net users play important part to you Darren. That’s why you used New Delhi time as well.

    Do not worry about AM time as people of India are used to that time because of cricket matches played in Australia.

    You should mention Canada time as well.

  13. I suppose Darren could always record it for Indians and others who would have to be up at a ridiculous time to see it.

    Either that, or I’m missing the point a bit. lol.

  14. Henry says:

    9am is a bit early for me to get up on my day off! But I might just have to make an effort.

    See you tomorrow.

  15. It’s christmas you have to have a beer!

  16. Will join you Darren! Although it’s at 10 pm for me here won’t pass on the opportunity to see you eating coffee and muffin!

    Thanks for warning.

  17. Looking forward to it! Thanks for the heads-up!

  18. Ok, I’ll bring the Champagne for a champagne breakfast ;) Should be good I haven’t really participated in something like this before.

    See you tomorrow!

  19. Daria says:

    I hope I can make it home from work before you go offline! I would love to be able to say hi and give you a ‘thank you’ in person! =)

    If I don’t make it – Merry Christmas and Thank you for everything you have done for us ‘little’ bloggers throughout the world!

  20. Sounds great!! (An office party for those of us without an office!)

  21. Wonderful idea! Sorry to miss it — working –, and I hope it goes well. Please blog about anything interesting that comes up, and Happy Holiday. I’ll keep following.

  22. Static says:

    It’ll be 7 am over here in Korea, but I don’t think it’ll be that bad. I’ll see if I can get up for it. :)
