This Sunday You’re Invited to #Blogchat to Talk Monetizing Blogs

One of my favorite times of the week on Twitter is on Monday mornings, my time (Sunday night for many of you), when Twitter comes alive with #blogchat.

#blogchat is a hashtag on Twitter that ties together hundreds of bloggers all talking about a particular aspect of blogging for an hour or so. It starts at 8pm Central US time, and usually revolves around a specific topic and/or guest host. Bloggers exchange ideas, ask questions, and network. It’s a frenzy of activity, which can seem a little overwhelming, but once you get into the swing of it, it’s a lot of fun.

You can learn more about #BlogChat and how to participate here.

This coming Sunday/Monday (depending where in the world you’re located), I’m cohosting #blogchat and we’ll be looking at the topic, “How to Monetize Your Blog.”

I’ve got a little information prepared to share, but the hour (and I’ll probably hang out for longer) will largely be an exchange of ideas. I’m happy to answer as many questions as I can during the hour—so if you have any, do come prepared.

I’ve also promised a few people to give a bit of the backstory behind my upcoming project, @Feelgooder (which I hope to soft launch in the coming week).

Remember: it’s on at 8pm Central US time on Sunday night. So mark it in your calendar, set up a way to follow the #blogchat hashtag, and follow me on Twitter at @ProBlogger!

    Sounds like this #blogchat twitter frenzy will be very fast paced! Sounds cool, I can’t wait to get some blogging tips and to share some with you guys. This is the first that I have heard about your feelgooder project, I’m very interested to see what awesome project you have up your sleeve Darren!

  2. wilson says:

    Sweet, i want to see what new ideas come out of this #blogchat to many people are saying the same thing about monetizing your blog.

  3. LPC says:

    Oh my god this is going to be a veritable mosh pit! I am going to have to set up a Tweetdeck column just for you, next to my #blogchat column, so I can actually see what you are saying. And Tweetdeck just went to live streaming. A blur, people, it’s going to be a lovely blur. Gird your loin, and come on over.

  4. Steve says:

    Sounds awesome! Will be there :)

  5. Rison Simon says:

    Hi Darren,
    #Blogchat is indeed a nice way to build relationships and knowledge at the same time. Hey, maybe you should create a FAQ for the upcoming chat so that those who are unable to attend are also benefited.

  6. Clarabela says:

    I will be there. This is a topic that really sparks my interest.

  7. Edwin says:

    am figuring out what time it will be in Pakistan then.. i have a few ideas to exchange and have a few questions too

  9. karen says:


    This might be a stupid question but where it the “Tweet” or “Tweet This” button for your posts? I follow you on Twitter so that’s not a problem, but I’m looking for a button to tweet this post.

    Is that a post you did in the past and I missed it?

  10. karen says:

    Ah…..I see it now. It’s up on the top but I have to log into that account to tweet?? Hmm….

  11. Marcie Hill says:

    I was unaware of #blogchat. I’ll be tuning in tomorrow.

  12. Tim says:

    I’ve never attended a twitter chat before but I’m looking forward to it tonight. I’m always up to one of Darren’s talks.

  13. Unfortunately, as I live in the UK, that’s too late for me! I’d love to read some of the tweets form it in the morning though.

  14. Josh Ray says:

    This will be interesting to hear from people that actually make money from their blogs. Thanks for the heads up.

    Hey, thanks for co-hosting #blogchat. I learned a whole lot from what seemed like only a few minutes of spending with you.
