Update!!! We have a location! Charley's in Cotswold Shopping Center. Walk in between Toys and Co. and Basil Cafe and you will see it. I have reserved the upstairs area. I am excited to announce that our first meetup is scheduled! I can't wait to meet all of you fellow bloggers and / or social media lovers and connect! We will meet in Cotswold and when I get a sense for the RSVPs I will reserve us a space and hopefully get a group discount on food and drinks. Please feel free to come a little late if you need to but realize that we will start introductions and discussion right away. Based on feedback and the most important thing about blogging we will start with a discussion around finding your niche and making your pitch with people's first impressions of both you and your blog. You should put your best foot forward so we will focus on helping each other improve what people see and hear first - your pitch, your design, your layout. Can you define your niche and "pitch" your blog? Is it simple and easy to navigate? Is it easy to read? Have you optimized you sidebar(s) and have an easy way for people to subscribe to your feed and follow you on social media sites like twitter, Facebook and linked in? I am sure this will be a great discussion! Content is King - but you have to sell it with a well thought out pitch and website. I can't wait to meet you all! Of course, laptops are welcome and there is Free WiFi but we'll be mostly chatting IRL style!
