I will be preparing all kinds of brunch goodies for everyone.


1.Network and Meet With Other Bloggers

Ask questions related to blogging - which will be answered by Heidi and others in the group. THIS WEEK'S MAIN TOPIC >> PUBLICITY PUBLICITY PUBLICITY.

Why Publicity?

1. You need media mentions and features to attract a substantial amount of readers. 

2. You need media mentions and features to establish yourself as an expert in whatever you're blogging about.

3. You need media mentions and features to attract paying, good quality sponsors.

Plus! I will reveal the top 10 things ANY blogger can start now to start attracting the media's attention.

    Hey ladies,

    I'm curious about what your opinions are about using your full names on your blog and associated social media. I've always been concerned about safety and not used it, but I'm sure it's pretty easy to figure it out and also since my blog will be associated eventually with my career as a registered dietitian, I would want to use my full name. Thoughts?

      I think it's ok to use your real name on social media and on your blog if you're using it professionally. I use my real name on my blog and social media networks (except my personal Facebook) because I'm using it professionally as a journalist. And it's easier for people to connect with you when looking for your real name on the networks.

    LOVE Publicity and marketing. Very grateful I can participate. I know more than most (mostly due to my punk photos being published for eons, but I research and read about this, gotta get the word out there, books and photos, no matter how great, don't sell themselves!). But staying motivated and focused, on a schedule, and most of all, being accountable, are elusive goals for many. I live in Santa Monica, but no car. I hope this is near the Pico bus. I don't mind walking a bit. One of the advantages living here!

      My photo was on cover of Argonaut, the article on Punk on Film, first week in May. I photographed X at Club 88 for Decline of Western Civilization doc filming, March 1980. Club 88 now a small office bldg, next to Liquid Kitty on Pico and Granville. Getting press is never an issue for me. It's getting the RIGHT press and having PRODUCTS or SERVICES to sell. Plus an effective website. People are looking for content for interviews. Finding the right online blogs and press is THE issue for me. I've got to compile a list. PLUS making sure we are presented truthfully. The Argonaut did such a hatchet job I insisted they remove or correct the piece. I spent MONTHS working with the writer. He lied to the Editor and I. An ongoing issue: being truthfully represented. Maybe not an issue for others, but ppl make up stories, despite my articulate details. Sigh. Nothing stops me, despite this.

      LOVE the energy from everyone. Great varied topics, esp healing. I cancelled an interview for a punk doc. I rather skype than be filmed. Blogger Babes is unique and needed topic for a Meetup. Grateful you are local. Good to meet up in person. So tired of living online all the time.
