Updates From Bloggywood Squares – Day 1

Loved it! This was one of those breezy events that actually got me to listen up – rather than sit on the fence and multitask.

I’m not sure of the audience level for today’s Bloggywood Squares show – but apart from a few things that could improve, it was wonderful. The participants were actually able to chime in – and got handsome rewards for playing in. Delivering Happiness, Rework and Beyond Blogging were the books that were given away – as well as a three month membership to BloggerBeats.

Wow! Those were some of the items on my wishlist, actually 😉

Here are my thoughts on what could change – not too many of them, actually

  • Avoiding questions that involve numbers and math. I know Jordan called that out in the show itself.
  • Having “real” background, filler music. That would go a big way.
  • How about providing a quick takeaway/incentive for the rest of the audience which could not play in?

But to sum up, I personally think this has been a wonderful experiment – one which might bring some fame and fortune to Mike, Nathan and Jordan 🙂

Using Vokle to end the session was a great idea too. Though it didn’t work out very well on my Mac/FireFox combo, I’m going to take a deeper look into it and report what lies in store in the next few days.

Three cheers for Bloggywood Squares! Hip-Hip-Hurray!

    Kapil, I’m really glad you enjoyed the webinar. Our format was for the exact purpose you mentioned – it inspires you to actually listen up and not multi-task while it’s going on. Shouldn’t that be one of the primary elements of any type of remarkable content?

    Thanks for the advice about the math questions. When I wrote that one up, I never really intended for anyone to answer with a mathematical formula – just get the concept right about what a conversion percentage really means.

    I’m also going to look in right now about playing background music – but I’m not exactly sure if it’s possible to combine audio sources on GoToWebinar (at least not with a audio application workaround on my end).

    Looking forward to seeing your spotlight on the show as a celebrity square! 🙂
