Hello fellow travel addicts!
A big thanks to those that braved the freezing weather last night and joined us at the Founders Arms for our November meetup. We had some great discussions, as always the subject of PR companies, sponsorship and monetisation came up again. Something most dedicated bloggers have to deal with from time to time. With this (and many other aspects of blogging) in mind I have launched a new association that I would like you all to join in on. www.bloggingstandards.com
will be an open platform for bloggers of any genre and companies from any industry to have their say. We will work together to create some usable guidelines for all. Whatever level of blogging you are at (or aspire to be) it's a project that everyone can get involved with. Do join us by subscribing to the newsletter and following @blogstandards
on twitter. We'll be launching a full service very soon.
If you were at last night's meetup you may have seen me discussing my blogging book. You can get it from www.successfulwordpresswebsite.com
and is available in eBook PDF format, paperback and now on the Kindle too. I'll be blogging more on this site in the coming weeks and months with more great blogging tips. You can even sell the book on your blog to help make some money! Check out the site for more details.
Our next meetup will be in January with the venue and date to be decided. It will be a workshop style event in London with some great talks on blogging and travel. I hope you can make it.
