What we're about

This Meetup is an open group for all bloggers - whether you're already established or you're still dreaming of becoming a blogger. Our group will be a collaborative and encouraging place to get and share information, tips, recommendations, and methods used for blogs (or personal online writing).

Let's work together to make our own writing, videos, and photography better. Let's meet together when we can to share fun, camaraderie, networking, and/or friendships.

As of April 2018, I'm living in Chicago, so the scheduled Meetups will be online, remote and virtual (no physical meeting place or time). Just use your Internet to access this site and check out the information. That means you can have the meeting's information any time you want!

Send in your comments, suggestions, and desires for this group. What do you want to see, hear, or learn?

Hello new Bloggers and to those who have not yet started (like me), Did you know that there are some true benefits to being a newbie? First off, there’s something beautiful and appealing about discovering your passions and pursuing them to the fullest that makes for robust and interesting writing. Three reasons why new bloggers have an advantage: 1. New writers are more motivated The longer you’ve been doing any one career, the more the shine has worn off. But not when you’re just starting out. Novice writers are hungry and eager — they’re ready to do the work, and they tend to go at it hard and accept feedback more easily than those who have been getting their work published for a while. And, for many bloggers, this as a second (or third or fourth) career, they understand the effort it can take to master something unfamiliar, and they’re more willing to push through the tough times to reach their goals. 2. New writers don’t have as many bad habits Any editor who has worked with veteran reporters knows that they are often set in their ways. They’ve been misspelling the same words for decades, and they craft their sentences and set up their story structures in similar ways, over and over. Not so with newbies. Sure, it’s true that a story from someone who hasn’t produced it for public eyes previously can be filled with grammatical errors and need assistance in things like transitions, sentence structure, and other writing conventions, but for the most part, learners want to do just that: learn. New writers also are more likely to retain feedback, because they are eager to become proficient, and they’re more motivated. 3. New writers often come from interesting backgrounds The fresh perspective from new Bloggers that comes from such varied life experiences can be so reinvigorating. I really enjoy hearing about a place from someone who has a different—and often unique—worldview, because the outlook on available activities, dining, lodging, and modes of travel can be fascinating and provocative. The exploration and acceptance of our differences and our similarities is what makes the world go ’round, and it absolutely feeds and enhances the travel experience. So, if you’ve been putting off blogging because of lack of experience, you can quit using that excuse right now. Start with where you are and with what you have. Start today. Start right now. Right for 10-30 minutes.
