It's been a long time since you've seen an email from this meetup. As Raul mentioned last summer, he was relocating to Mexico and ensured the meetup was left in the capable hands of a couple of co-organizers - myself and Esmir Milavic.
Unfortunately, right when Raul left, things went nuts for Esmir and I with me moving, career evolutions for us both, a serious illness developing in my family, and so on so coordinating a joint event just wasn't in the cards as the dust didn't seem to settle - until now.
Firstly, I'd like to schedule a straight-up get-together. This would be a casual event to hang out, chat about what people have become interested in in blogging over the past year, what members are blogging about, what we're fans of in terms of blogging, what we'd like to explore and so on. There's no theme to draw people, so I'm hoping to draw out those keen on revitalizing this community.
Second is the date for our meetups. A lot's surely changed in people's lives and schedules, so I've set up a poll to see what works: http://doodle.com/arhcgf4268kt6rxy
Check it out, offer up a vote and let us know. Once a few votes have come in, you'll see a new meetup proposed for the get-together and then the first meetup in March at a regular date and time, venue TBA!
In the meantime, please drop a line with any thoughts, ideas, comments on what you'd like to see from the VBM community in 2013.
All the best.
Dave (& Esmir)
