If you blog in or around the Los Angeles area, I’ve just launched the Southern California Bloggers Meetup Group. I made the announcement on the Meetup site a few minutes ago, so I have no idea how many people will show up, but I don’t feel like slating the event for later just to feel things out. Come by and meet some of your fellow bloggers in the real world.
The first meeting will take place on Thursday, October 23rd at Swork Coffee in Eagle Rock at 7:00 PM.
Here’s the description of the first meetup, taken from the site:
This first Meetup will be a general introduction to each other and our respective blogs, and an opportunity to voice your preferences for which aspects of blogging should be emphasized for the next Meetup. Candidate topics include:
- Technical issues: hosting services, plugins, audio/video, WordPress configuration and RSS syndication
- Content issues: niche selection, topic selection, brainstorming, posting frequency and copywriting
- Promotion: traffic, analytics, social networks, SEO and comment marketing
- Monetization: direct advertising, product launches, affiliate programs and ad networks
Feel free to suggest other topics or concerns. This is your Meetup as much as mine.
Jonathan Mead of the personal development blog Illuminated Mind will also be in attendance as the assistant organizer. If you’re interested and local, please follow the link above to RSVP or contact me.
