We’ve had an incredible year at #DadChat – see the 2014 stats, year-to-date, above. A record for us and probably one of the most popular chats on Twitter, period. I’m so proud of our community, my partner Christopher Lewis, and grateful for ALL the incredible guests and sponsors we’ve had this year. We look forward to 2015 bringing EVERYONE joy, health, and prosperity! Our FIRST #DadChat of 2015 will be Thursday, January 8 at 6:00 p.m. PT/9:00 p.m. ET!
I love Andy William’s song It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year, and feel sad at his passing this year. There’s such an irony in how we approach The Holidays or, more specifically, how we are expected to approach them. There’s all the music – EVERYWHERE. There’s all the decorations and there’s all the expectations. Yet, many families truly struggle with Christmas and New Year’s (as well as Thanksgiving).
#DadChat is the weekly TweetChat (on Twitter) that I founded and host – often with guest-hosts – every Thursday evening from 6:00 – 7:00 p.m. PT. It has grown to be one of the most popular, busy, and fun chats among the hundreds that exist. On Thursday December 6, I invited our participants to share their tips for surviving the holidays. The idea was simply to compile the best and make a column out of them.
