You know, I am one of those guys who want to make it happen.

I mean, when I get a new idea.

So, yes.

Facebook Interview Chat was one such idea.

You want to know how I got that? (It’s an interesting story!).

Well, maybe not interesting, but it isn’t boring 😉

As you may already know, I have been spending some time participating in #Blogengage twitter chat and #B2Ctweet chat (which began today, the 8th).

And, I was having an idea to start my own twitter chat (I had tried that in the past, but failed miserably).

But, I was thinking.

These are twitter chats.

They are too common.

I want to do something unique.

So, I decided to do it with Facebook.

First it was Facebook Chat.

Then, Facebook Interview Chat.

So, I did.

I contacted Ileane and asked her if she would be the first guest.

She agreed.

And so, I launched.

On 8th August, 5 pm, we started our first FB interview chat.

It went well.

Very well – because, I had some blogging friends dropping in and participating.

Only thing bad about it?

We had to reload the page everytime to see a new comment (Totally unexpected). I thought it was real time chat, that’s why I chose Facebook.

Ah, but the chat still went well.

It’s still live.

If you have any questions for Ileane, you are more than welcome to drop by and ask (till Friday).

Productivity Challenge?

Ah, Yes.

The Challenge right?

It’s went really well.

From Tuesday (the first day of challenge) to Last Friday (last day), I only spent 8 and a half hours of blogging instead of 20-30 hours.

It was great. I saved lots of time, did the same things (and more, in some days) and achieved good results.
And I plan to continue it (not as a challenge, but as a habit).

And, yes I added a new tool to the collection: Zen writer. Awesome writing tool. Thanks to Rahul for the recommendation!

Another Contest?

Have you heard it? I am participating in another guest posting contest!

Yes, this time the post is on increasing perceived value of blog posts that we write. Be sure to drop by and leave a comment 😉



I was going to do a podcast this week (Well, I had planned it). But, something happened:

Lack of Idea (ah, I don’t want it to call it “Podcaster’s Block” 😀 )

Yeah, I searched and searched, but couldn’t many ideas, and out of ideas I found, I didn’t have anything fit for podcasting.

So, I ask you:

What do you want to “hear” and learn from me?

I know each of you have your own personal opinion, but your opinions are worth a lot to me. One opinion is more than enough to give me hundred ideas. So, tell me!

Have you ever done a Facebook chat on blogging (I mean, public chat)?

Any recommendations, tips or suggestions for having a better chat with Facebook? Should we switch over to twitter next time?

What writing tool do you use? Have you tried Zen writer?

What do you think I should podcast on, for the next episode?
