    Beginner to Expert, writers of all sorts interested in expanding their repertoire to include the world of blogging should consider joining. We'll share success and failures, goof-ups and greatness as we ALL have it in Us, the Power of the Pen! :D We intend for this Calgary Group to be an IN-PERSON group, for academic, informative and social writer awareness.

    Come On, Join...what do you have to lose? I yakked ad nauseum today and nobody threw tomatoes at me even though I'm SURE I deserved a few...:D

    Best Regards,
    Barbie, aka MsBurb

      It was quite the education. My caution it seems has served me well. Now I'm thinking of blog post topics to write on

    Many thanks to Barb Thompson who prepared materials and shared her practical experience as a blogger (5 years) and expert tips to help beginner and novice bloggers. It was an informative and fun workshop. I was inspired and better informed after our 2 hour session. Thank you Barb.

    My 10 Minute Topic Suggestion for the 25th: "Blog Branding & Image" (a GENERAL look as cannot be covered in detail in 10 minutes) - a frank and realistic take on the issue, to possibly offer a different POV and stimulate Q&A with the members - will supply a handout of the Points covered

    • Barbie T.

      Good on ya, Liz...:) I fear I might have tomatoes thrown at me by all you people anyways even with just my 10 minutes of yapping...more time for tomato throwing for you...:P

    I'll have to leave early - or on time as I'm doing a presentation drafting and am way way behind!

    May 20, 2013

  • Barbie T.

    Does anyone know if we are still each taking a subject and talking on it for 10 minutes, with Q&A to follow, for this next meeting, as was discussed in the previous meeting??? Feedback from Isabella or anyone in the know would be appreciated...:)

    May 15, 2013

    • Barbie T.

      Hi, Liz...:) Thought this group was dying actually because no one was talking at all, anywhere...maybe we can all cement this thing on the next meeting as per other casual meet ups...as per this next meeting, I said previously I could talking on Image & Branding as per blogging if no one else wants to. I'll prepare for that and see what happens on the 25th...hope your writing is going well, Liz, and having a nice Spring, finally...:D

      I agree about the meeting more often and I think we need to set up a Facebook Page to be able to communicate more, better...hope to properly cement all this on the 25th. I'm willing to set it up as I don't think Kevin is able. You or anyone wanting to contact me directly, my public email is: [masked]. I'll flesh out my 10 minute talk on I & B then and maybe you, Liz, could pick a Topic too...and let us know what it is. ANYONE planning on going to this meeting on the 25th, think about picking a 10 minute Topic and publish your Topic Choice HERE so we don't overlap each other. Liz or anyone else who would like to meet for coffee or drinks before the 25th let me know here too and we can always meet informally. Also, Anyone, don't hesitate to drop me a line any time at that email above, I'm always accessible...:)

    Thanks Barbie, sounds useful. Hopefully I have the Web Page up by then!

    April 6, 2013

  • Barbie T.

    I could talk on the idea of Branding and Image with a Blog (my background is in Public Relations so "Spin" was what I did), what "works", what doesn't as per stats and research. BUT if anyone would prefer I talk on some other topic I'm up for anything, just let me know either way and I will prepare accordingly...:)
