Here’s the #Blogchat Co-Host Lineup For July Through November

by Mack Collier

Unfortunately, I haven’t been able to spend as much time as I would like with #Blogchat recently.  This is due mostly to client work and also launching my new podcast The Fan-Damn-Tastic Marketing Show.  But all that is about to change.  They say a picture is worth a thousand words, so here’s your lineup of #Blogchat co-hosts for the second half of the year:

BlogchatCoHosts

Here’s the schedule and topics (subject to change) for each co-host:

July 6th – Joe Pulizzi – How to Create a Content Strategy For Your Blog

August 10th – ProBlogger – How to Build a Blog Worth Monetizing

August 17th – Scott Monty – How to Build an Awesome Hobby Blog (This will be a LOT of fun!)

September 14th – Ann Handley – How to Weave Storytelling Into Your Blog and Improve Your Writing

October 5th – Jay Baer – Your Blog as a YouTility, Creating Content That’s Useful For Your Readers

November 2nd – Gini Dietrich – Why Your Blog Can Be Your Company’s Best Friend During a Social Media Crisis

November 9th – Kerry O’Shea Gorgone – The Legal Ramifications of Blogging: What You Need to Know

December – TBA

Are you excited about lineup as I am?  It’s worth noting that I asked 8 people to co-host #Blogchat, and the 7 you see above accepted.  The 8th person has tentatively agreed, just waiting to see when their schedule will allow them to join.  That’s because these are all experts and thought leaders that are giving of their time, but they also understand the value of connecting with the #Blogchat community.  Y’all do an amazing job of supporting #Blogchat and that’s a big reason why we are lucky enough to have such amazing co-hosts to learn from.

Also, here’s the topics for the rest of June:

Tonight (June 8th) – Breaking Blogging’s Unwritten Rules (Posts shouldn’t be too long, you should post at least once a week, etc)

June 15th – How to Get More Comments on Your Blog

June 22nd – Your blogging strategy for the second half of 2014

June 29th – OPEN MIC

Also, if you are interested in sponsoring any month from July-December, check out the #Blogchat Sponsorship page as there are new terms and rates available.

See y’all tonight starting at 8pm Central!

Really looking forward to this, Mack! Thanks for including me. Next step? Finally meet in person.

I know! Good grief I think I’m just going to have to drive to Chicago :)

These will be fun! Looking forward to all of them. I don’t always participate, but I typically do follow along every week.

Scott’s topic makes me curious about the term “hobby blog” and what it means specifically. I mean, in one sense it’s a blog about a hobby (e.g., knitting, gardening) but in another it’s a blog the owner doesn’t intend to go “pro” with (i.e., not something he/she intends to monetize).

After checking out Scott’s site I’m kinda leaning toward the latter meaning, though I’m still not 100% sure. Maybe because I’m more used to seeing terms like “personal blog” when it comes to non-monetized blogs.

Hi Nancy, that’s a good question! I wanted to have Scott co-host because I think a lot of bloggers have a blog based on their favorite hobby or passion. It could be gardening, or muscle cars, or Sherlock Holmes, or collecting vintage movie posters.

And hobbies can often lead to money! Growing up I was always looking for a way to take whatever my hobby was (collecting baseball cards, etc) and make enough money off it to buy more stuff ;)

Besides, I just love the passion that bloggers have for their favorite hobby or interest. Should be a great chat with Scott!

Thanks for the response & the clarification!
