May Blogger Meetup

Jeff came across a rather hostile post recently that reminded him that some bloggers don't always play nice. So this month we thought we'd discuss bad blogging behavior, things we should (usually) try to avoid such as:

Provocative Click Bait - Rude or inflammatory posts that attract attention, but perhaps the wrong kind.

TMI - Sharing too much way too personal information when it isn't relevant to the general theme of your blog

Geekdom to the point of being utterly out of touch - you know offering tech advice at a PhD level when your readers are amateurs.

Being rude to commenters - snapping at your readers before taking the time to think about what they really meant.

and anything else you want to chat about.

The location:
The Barking Spider Tavern is in the heart of University Circle. If the weather is nice we'll sit outside, if not we'll sit in the back room.

Here are a few things to know:

The Spider doesn't sell food, but you can bring your own pizza or snacks (excluding chips and pretzels, which they do sell.)
They offer an array of beverages including beer, wine, pop, juice, coffee, tea, iced-tea and bottle water. Please don't bring your own coffee.

There is a new parking lot on Bellflower behind the Spider. Look at this Google map for parking options. (You can park in the Coffeehouse lot.)

The Barking Spider is cash only, but they have an ATM in the back room. Wifi is available through Case Western Reserve University using the username and password "caseguest."

We hope to see you there!

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
