We are writers and aspiring writers. We are bloggers and wannabe bloggers. We meet regularly to interact with serious and not-so serious bloggers.

This Marketing Meetup serves Sunnyvale, Mountain View, Palo Alto, Santa Clara, San Jose, San Mateo and Los Altos.

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 innovation capital of the world -- Silicon Valley.
