Ok I want to try something different with the next #Blogchat. I seriously do appreciate all of you that make #Blogchat so amazing each week, so I’m constantly trying to figure out ways that we can leverage the power of #Blogchat so that its regular participants can benefit.
So what I want to try is this: With the next #Blogchat, I want to have us all review and advise three different people on their blogs. What we’ll do is each 20 mins we’ll all examine a different blog and give the blogger ideas and advice on how they can improve their efforts. And ideally, I’d like to start doing this once a month, on the 3rd Sunday of every month.
So if you’ve just launched your blog, and maybe you want some feedback on the visual look of it, we could help you! Or if you want some advice on the type of content you are creating, etc, let us know! If you want your blog to be considered for one of the THREE review slots at the next #Blogchat then leave a comment to this post giving us the URL of your blog, and exactly what you are concerned with and the areas you want feedback on. If you want to know what everyone thinks of the information on your sidebars, let us know that. If you want to know what you should be writing about, tell us who you are trying to connect with. If you want feedback on your post titles, let us know.
What I’ll do is pick 5 or so finalists, and set it up so everyone can vote on them this weekend, and the Top 3 will be selected for our #Blogchat review blogs! How does that sound? And I’ll have a blog post up on Sunday announcing the winners and reminding everyone of what their blogs are, and how we can help them in our reviews. Then at next Sunday’s #Blogchat, we’ll review a new blog every 20 mins!
How does that sound to everyone? I see this as a way for us to harness the power of the #Blogchat community to improve our blogs and make them better 😉
PS: Remember if you want to have your blog be considered, you have to leave a comment to this post telling us the URL for your blog, and what area(s) you need and want advice on!
UPDATE: Thanks to everyone that has submitted a blog and since so many of you have, I am going to pick FOUR blogs to review tomorrow, instead of three. And to address the ‘we need more time to review the chosen blogs’ point, I am going to pick four later today, then announce which ones were picked, so everyone will have a day to review them. So please make sure you leave a comment if you want to get your blog in the mix!
