Thanks Black and Brew

One thing concerned me at tonight’s Polk County Blogger’s meeting…we’re an older group. And 100% male. I wonder what we need to do to pull in the younger and female bloggers….I’m not saying young female…but the two demographics that weren’t represented: young or female.

Other than that, as usual we were a vocal group. Most of the talk centered about local politics and Polk County “interesting characters.” Some subjects were even members of both groups.

It’s always interesting to learn from the trials and tribulations of the other bloggers, and I daresay, a post or two will come from ideas thrown out at the meeting.

As the headline succinctly stated, but I feel the need to elaborate on, I appreciate the Black and Brew crew making it so easy for us to hold our meeting there. I hope we will return. It would be nice to have a home base for future Lakeland meetings. Though I hope we continue to move the meeting around the county.

That said, are there any bloggers in South Polk County looking to host a meeting?

  1. It was a good meeting last night with the cast of usual suspects in attendance. The staff and Black and Brew were most cordial and accommodating to us. I get quite a bit from these discussions, though I am not able to utilize as much of the political material as others. And thanks to Chuck and Josh for your insight into Flickr…I opened an account last night after our meeting.

  3. Hi Chuck,
    I’m not a blogger, but I do own and run a local online newspaper. I would be interested in learning more about your group, and maybe adding the younger female element that you were referring to.
    From reading some of the blog entries, it sounds like your group is an interesting, intelligent one. Please let me know if there is some way I can learn more.
    Thanks,
    Jennifer
