3 Blog Nights 2009 at BCIT

Comments 4 by Rebecca Bollwitt

In the spring of 2009 BCIT hosted the inaugural 3 Blog Nights and they’ve brought it back again this year for 72 straight hours of content and contests.

The goal is to get the word out about BCIT, raise some buzz through social media, share video interviews and do an ultimate giveaway two ultimate giveaways of $1,000 worth of tuition credits. The event began yesterday at the main Burnaby campus and will be going until Wednesday. They have an entire crew working 8-hour shifts each to keep the educational information flowing.

You can keep up to date on all of their interviews (including one I recorded with Kemp Edmonds today) and happenings online via Twitter @3BlogNights, and the 3 Blog Nights blog.

Tomorrow (Tuesday, October 27th) they will also be hosting a tweetup at Malone’s downtown, near their Vancouver campus. It will run from 5:30pm onwards and is listed on the official Vancouver Tweetup directory.

The crew at BCIT (Kemp, Dave, Randy et al) have been doing a tremendous job in using social media — from individual Twitter accounts to YouTube videos that profile programs and life on the BCIT campus. If you have the chance, stop by the 3 Blog Nights booth at the Burnaby campus (inside SE2) or check them out online. I know what it’s like to do a Blogathon so kudos to them for making this campaign an annual event.

Update: My interview video is now online.

    Great videos so far! Another from the students at Broadcast Journalism should be hitting the 3-Blog shortly – I’m told around midnight!

    Just a couple of corrections: 1) The inaugural 3 Blog Nights occurred in March, 2009, and 2) we have *two* prizes of $1,000 towards BCIT tuition this time around.

    Also, typo in second paragraph; we’d love the world to come out to BCIT, but I’m I’m guessing you just meant that we’re trying to get the word out 😉

    Thanks for the post.

    Too bad this is on a night that Vancouver plays Detroit! 🙂
