“ Attended 1st babs in 2009 and Suzanne brings expertise and the spirit of professional collaboration among peers; last night was even more expansion by shared invested bloggers who love what they bring to their work. 2/25/13: Love the way Suzanne gives you the sense of your brain encountering new experience and what happens when confronted with new domains. You come back to it with more confidence and clarity and curiosity. That's how I feel about attending BABS. Enjoyed each of the people present last night. Quite a lot similar in what we're wanting to do with our blogs. Hope to see you all again soon. Happy Trails. Peggy ”

“ Presentations by Anne Hill and Suzanna Stinnett were thoughtful and well-organized at July 10 meetup in Tiburon. I especially appreciated discussion of the audio market as well as Suzanne's discussion of the creative ways she and others use Twitter. Thanks, Anne, for mentioning one good reason for being on Google Plus and for describing three-prong author strategies of conversation, continuity, and conversion. This is a valuable meetup group with active participation by an experienced audience of authors. Our drive from the East Bay was well worth the time and gas. Bravo. ”

For people who want to learn ebook creation or are blogging-curious, you can find support here to get your project rolling. For those who are more familiar with the world of online communication, attending a BABS meeting gives you an opportunity to share what you know, network, and build new relationships. BABS members also have opportunities to practice speaking. And we have fun! ”
