If you're a blogger, can you spare a minute to tell us something?
If we started up regular blogger meetups again, what would interest you?
A few of us here at BlogAsheville are talking about re-starting quarterly blogger meetups this spring. We'd like to keep the blogging community connected, share best practices, work together on community projects, and just enjoy the excellent company of Asheville's smart, vibrant and community-minded creative class of bloggers, Tweeters and Facebookers.
We've talked about social time, just hanging out somewhere where there's good beer and good food.
We've talked about a forum where we gather to talk about things that we care about as a blogging community, like disaster response using citizen media. We could invite Progress Energy, Fire & Rescue, Progress Energy, Charter, the DOT and everyone we can think of who was affected by the recent snowstorm. Talk together on what to do in the next crisis with powerful new tools that are reshaping the media landscape.
It'd be a hell of a way for bloggers to make real-world change in area where our much-lauded tools weren't used anywhere near their maximum power and effectiveness. We could help our city put a real plan into place for the next time that ordinary life in Asheville stops dead in its tracks.
We've talked about a speaker series, inviting local experts bloggers are geniunely interested in: star WNC powerbloggers who make money with their blogs, local SEO experts, local experts in blogging platforms like Wordpress, etc.
It all comes down to you, bloggers. It all comes down to us. Like our ideas? Got some of your own?
I figure we want to get together. I figure we want to make it worth our while.
What do we want to do?
Leave a comment and let us know.
