We are writers and aspiring writers. We are bloggers and wannabe bloggers. We meet regularly to interact with serious and not-so serious bloggers. And the Meetup serves Hoboken NJ, Jersey City, New York City. We also have author book readings, hold informal writing sessions and discussions, and support each others' writing aspirations. We strive to become better writers and bloggers. We will often feature expert speakers on writing, blogging, and web-related issues. There will be special emphasis on optimizing web traffic and blog monetization. Our topics of discussion include: 1) writing better and faster 2) overcoming writer's block and procrastination 3) driving traffic to your blog 4) how to gain traction, credibility, and legitimacy as a blogger 5) how to grow your audience 6) monetizing your blog 7) how to get "published" - on-line and off-line and more! We welcome veteran bloggers, newbies and those of you who want to learn more about the wonderful world of writing and blogging. We are a supportive, non-competitive community focused on helping each other improve and grow as writers and bloggers. We are here to help each other achieve their writing goals -- be they grand and lofty, or practical and realistic. We are a community composed of talented, creative people located in the Mile Square City -- Hoboken NJ.
Our first Meetup will be more like a launch get-together. Our main focus is to set the mood, break the ice, get to know each other and discuss what to expect from our Meetups. We’ll have a small discussion on blogging/writing for passion, profit, and our community goals.
