ProBlogger Christmas Eve Party – Save This Date

Posted By Darren Rowse 23rd of December 2009 ProBlogger Site News 0 Comments

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.

  • Sounds great! I’ll try and pop in for a bit.

    Cya tomorrow.

  • Dmytro

    Awesome! I’ll be sure to join this!

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

  • 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.

  • Will make sure to mark it on my calendar.

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

  • 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. :)

  • Thanks! See you there.

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

  • Sounds like fun! Can’t wait!

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

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • It’s christmas you have to have a beer!

  • 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.

  • Looking forward to it! Thanks for the heads-up!

  • 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!

  • 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!

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

  • 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.

  • 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. :)

  • Wow it sounds fun, it will be early in the morning in my country, well no problem, I can get up early for special day :)

  • Awesome, I am pleased to know this and I will do my best to join.

  • 3.30am in New Delhi (sorry friends!)

    Hmmm! Ok, I will have to keep awake till than! Better to sleep late than miss this.

  • Merry Christmas & thanks for all the posts!

  • Not sure if I’ll make it but it sounds interesting nonetheless. Above all, have fun and Merry Christmas!

  • Awesome will try to attend inbetween eating mince pies and drinking large amounts of Sherry.
    Have a great Christmas All.

  • Bad luck. Its 3:30 AM for me. If I remain awake, my mother is going to scold me.

    I will try.

  • 11pm in Berlin. I’ll be up so will try to stop by for a hello. I’ll be on the beer team rather than the coffee team, if all goes according to plan. If not, tea…

  • Look forward to that party! merry Xmas and we do appreciate your 2009 great posts.

    And by the way, remember you also have following in Africa. I am a Kenya blogger, inspired by your success.
    Next time remember to include time for at least one African city, o.k?

  • Wish you a nice breakfast party! Cheers

  • Aah, sad..Won’t be able to watch it at 3:30 am…Till that time, my eyes will beg me to go to sleep zzzz.

  • Hi Darren,

    You have followers from Pakistan as well who will miss the show…
    Hope to see some recording.



  • great post — very inspiring

  • Thanks for taking the time to discuss this, I feel strongly about it and love learning more on this topic. If possible, as you gain expertise, would you mind updating your blog with more information? It is extremely helpful for me.

  • You can really build a successful business with tragetted leads, provided of course they are managed correctly.

  • Hellooo, I didn’t really like blogs but your blog was one of the reasons I set up my own one, too. Nice articles keep up the good work. :)
