Business Blogging Meetup A Great Resource

Combine veteran business bloggers, business blogging newbies and those considering blogging with good pizza and an open forum and you have the recipe for some great sharing and blogging tips. Tonight was the 2nd meeting of the Biz Bloggers Meetup group started by blogging pro Caroline Melberg and about 16 great business people attended.

The mix of online experience and industries represented made for good conversation as we focused on blog content development and where to get blog post topics and ideas from. New bloggers talked about some of their early success stories and how some of their “fears” were easily overcome while blogging veterans gave pointers on strategies and creative angles to develop content. We also dipped into how to make time and properly plan your blogging.

I wanted to give some link love and attention to those in attendance. It was cool to see so many taking notes and soaking up knowledge while sharing their questions, fears or challenges. Below are some of the groups members currently business blogging, so check them out:

In addition to those blogging was the following companies there to learn more as they consider or start blogging for business including Bebe Bella Designs, Nextstep, Still Pond Shiatsu, Image In Nation, Porte-Kim Agency and Sundberg Chiropractic. Hopefully we’ll see these local businesses blogging soon. I hope I didn’t miss anyone!

If you’re interested, sign-up for the group and learn of the next meeting. One of the things I love about most experts in Internet marketing is their willingness to share. I also value the networking, the different viewpoints and questions of new bloggers as they are always sharing new ways to look at things.

It’s nice to spend some time in the real world with fellow bloggers, and no laptops! I’m glad I attended and will certainly be back for the next one. And, thanks for the link!
